Five months in and no hairline dread-action


Dreading Methods

they look incredible for only being 5 months old!!!!! Try switching up your shampoo and see what happens maybe alternate the more moisturizing shampoos with something a tad more drying? Either way fantastic progress they are really coming along!! Much Love

Dread Maintenance

all starter methods have the potential to come undone. Read the FAQ there's some good info in there that will answer all the basics. I think you're smart for avoiding the chemicals but that's just my personal opinion :o)

Dread Maintenance

the wave perm idea slightly scares me to be honest. I have known more people that have had problems with perming before dreading, then haven't. Perms are pretty damaging and then using a started method to create dreads seems a lil sketchy. Talk to panterra, she'll let you know weather it's a good idea for the structure of your hair or not. Either way hang in there and have patience it will dread

you should definitely stop re-twisting and ripping... all that does is set you back to square one each time. do it once, then leave them alone. chances always are that they will come undone... and with time and patience they will dread themselves. beads are good for sectioning, though. make sure they aren't too tight; dread babies need room to move around in order to progress and eventually lock up :)

Dread Maintenance

make sure that when you wrap the dread don't wrap it too close to your scalp, I made that mistake in the beginning and it literally took me weeks to figure out why I couldn't get rid of my horrific migraine! Dur! heehee

Glue and disregard for experience *roll eyes*


General Talk

it's so unfortunate but it all comes down to money. Just like the pharmaceutical companies do whatever they can to make the big bucks even if it's ultimately harmful to people's health, many cosmetology schools teach harmful methods of dreading because there's not as much money to be made by telling people about natural dreading , backcombing or T & R which can easily be done at home. Thank the goddess we have smart, accomplished hair stylists like yourself to help spread the knowledge, Love You Mama!!

Thank you SE. I think what really needs to happen is that someone comparable to you should be asked to come in to all schools of cosmetology and teach about dreads. The problem is that schools will not ask those to speak who don't have a license, even when that individual is highly knowledgeable and skilled. It also seems that dreads fall under the category of "ethnic hair care" and is thus, generally overlooked....what a shame. So many students could benefit. Another thing is that like chiropractors in a world of doctors...stylists are conditioned to believe that there is only one way of treating a client to acheive results and that way is chock full of chemicals. The notion of natural hair, skin, and nail care is unheard of in the general industry.

oh i agree but the fact is most cosmotology schools teach them the wrong things at least when it comes to dreads partialuy cauuse they have ppl like that 1 dude that joined here teaching the schools the wrong info to teach


Panterra Caraway said:

Excuse me...but, just because someone went to Beauty College or works in a salon does not make them automatically wrong either. To be honest, most schools do not discuss or teach about dreads, so this young ladies ignorance most likely came by way of her own conclusions. I have been a licensed Cosmetologist for 31 years and Soaring Eagle and many others here know that I do know what I am talking about. I think that to lump ANYONE into a category as in....All stylists, or all dreaded people...is wrong and to be honest, her attitude was rude and arrogant but how smug are some of you all being? Thank you.
