Twisting dreadlocks Theories?


Dread Maintenance

@soaring eagle how can you tell me what does and doesn't hurt? I do seperate after every wash and im constantly separating throughout normal everyday life. My hair and your hair is different. My pain threshhold and yours is different. I don't want to go offtopic but a huge problem I have with this site is how info is thrown out there and it seems only one type is correct and it makes it seem like you are the only person that knows anything about dreads. I think im going to find a more open forum on dreadlocks.. Twisting isn't bad. I've had no problems with it. I came here to get and share knowledge and not get dictated to. Peace.

how many locks do you have?


General Talk

Ever counted them? When I cut off my first set I counted them up because I was curious. I had 207 locks.they were about the size of 3 or 4 shoe strings put together in width and about 19 to 22 inches long. Now on my second set I think I have less. Haven't counted yet though.

Dread Maintenance

Im due for a retwist. Its been about six weeks and with all the new growth,washing and general texture and kinkiness of my hair its starting to hurt and become a burden when seperating my locks. Its like I gotta a bush underneath my locks. So ill get them retwisted tomorrow.

Yea no hard feelings

I apologize if my comment seems rude. I didn't see your comment at firsttalking about how often you cleanse your dreads. I just didn't see the reason why you are asking if not for advice or just mere curiosity.

I guess you arejust trying to get a discussion going and trying to get to know people here. So no hard feelings.:-]

Are you blind or something? I wrote how often I wash mines a long time ago. Seems like you have it out for me for some reason.it ain't that serious man

From all of the responses so far you can see that it is all a matter of the individual. And I told you that before. So I don't know why you need to hear everyone else's washing schedule before you share yours. It just seems pointless.

oh okay. do you ever use like oils in between washings to keep your hair smelling good? every five days or so i use this wonder 8 oil because it smells great. i used to use it motr often but it ended up being too messy and didn't feel good. kemi oil also smells good too.

thanks for all the replies. before this i had just never heard of people wasing their hair 3-4 times a week, even without dreadlocks. i never thought it was neccessary to wash hair that often. i mean if feels great when you wash your hair but idk. i know people that get keep braids, and every two weeks they take out their braids, wash their hair, comb it, and then get braids again and repeat every two weeks. so they are going two weeks without washing their hair. i was hoping people didn't get self conscious and start saying they wash their hair often as not to get looked down on or looked at as dirty by others. i don't think anyone is though.

soooooo this thread got me looking up hair washing on google and i came across some interesting stuff. im not sure how credible it is though. btw i know some people hate labels(like myself) but for the sake of simplifying this i'll use labels. i saw a site comparing hair washing times between white people and black people in reference to hair type. it mentioned that in "white" hair it gets oily faster which causes people to wash more often and stop oil buildup and residue in their head. is there any truth to this, and does it go the same way for locks? one person even said they wash their hair twice a day every day.

Introduce Yourself

Av are you trying to get well groomed looking locks or go the natural route? i think that can influence the way you want to go about growing locks.

i started mine both times at about two inches of hair. twisted them. first time i had double strand, and this time i just haveingle strand. lots of different ways though depending on the look you want.
We'll both times I started mine I used beeswax. Which was a huge mistake. Stay away from beeswax if you can. Find a locitican tha knows a lot about hair and what should and shouldn't be put in. My loctician went through this process to get all the wax outta my head after she washed it.she uses her own blend of hair cream that leaves no residue and doesn't attract and hold lint and dirt. It takes time more than anything else to lock all the way uo.took a few months before my hair was all the way locked up. Ask around though, I'm sure someone can help you.
