Have I screwed up?


Dread Maintenance

You're worrying over nothing because you can't take it back. If you regret it don't do it again. Easy peasy.

Super long stray hairs


Dread Maintenance

If you really really can't stand the wait, don't use a crochet hook

Use a tapestry needle with a large eye and gently pull them into the lose top areas and outside layer of the dread you want to add them to.

Do not try and cram the needle through a tight area. You don't want to rip up your hair it will make your dreads frizzy forever. Find somewhere to thread it through gently so you don't break your hair.

It's better to wait but if you're going to do it try to be as artful and gentle as possible.

Back again


Introduce Yourself

It's been quite a few years since my first set of dreads, I was on here then but left when I cut them off. (It was a hot summer and I was in a very bad mood) but I'm two years in to a second set and missing this way of passing the time.

Looking for someone to Twist and Rip me! ^.^ happy to pay for good work.


Introduce Yourself

I am in Michigan but could twist and rip your dreads for you if you wanted to meet up. You don't have to pay me :)

I just like making new friends and if you need help TnR'ing your dreads why shouldn't someone help you?

How long does it usually take dreads to form?


Dread Maintenance

you should probably just leave your hair alone since combing out back combed dreads is just as damaging as back-combing.... so stop picking at your hair! It probably needs to rest for a year or two.

If You Ever Used the Crochet Method


Dreading Methods

I would use .75mm hook. my friends usually use that size when they need to pull in loose hairs or ends and it seems to work well for them.

Just don't over-do it and you will be fine.
