experiment gone wrong?


Introduce Yourself

i would let your hair section naturally IMHO. Forced sections tend to look funny and sometimes show lots of scalp. If you let your hair show you where the natural sections should be it will look better. I am partial to natural dreadlocks myself, so you could always just leave your hair alone, but if you want to use a method other than neglect, t & r is the way to go. Just don't do it too tight or they end up looking more like braids than dreads. Don't brush it for a while then you should be able to see where the knots want to form and t & r in those sections. Rip apart if the sections get too big.Joe muir said:
Well thank you, Im glad to hear that. It took me an hour to do that. My hair is about 13" and I just did it on the inside to hide it if I screwed. I can just imagine how long it would take to do the longer parts. do you recommend sectioning off or just winging it?

Introduce Yourself

yes it's normal. Most dreads that are created with a method come unraveled at some point. Once you t & r you should just leave your hair alone and let it do what it wants. It will most likely un-knot and then re-knot again in it's own way. Overly messing with it will only cause damage and wasted time. Read around the site a bit there's loads of good info here. Good Luck!

HELP!!!


Dread Maintenance

are you diluting the tea tree first? it's very strong.Matt said:
dude, i'm some 10 months into dreads now and dealing with the same damn issue. Itching just does not stop, ever, no matter what i do... tried knottyboy and dreadheadhq shampoos before finding this site, neither of which helped. for some 2wks now i've been doing the baking soda + teatree oil and acv wash, but still no real difference. I actually sometimes just put the teatree oil on my finger and rub it in my scalp in diff spots... not that it really helps at all but makes me feel like i'm doing 'something'. no idea what's causing it but if you find any kind of solution, please do share with me...

my hubby used to get those with his last set. As long as he washes with something that has tea tree his scalp has stayed perfect this set. Around 4 years. No dandruff no itchies!

Thinking Of Cutting


General Talk

Grey sweetie i don't know weather you should cut or not only you know that. I would suggest waiting at least 3 weeks also. You never know what tomorrow will bring. I just wanted to remind you that love is selfless. If this girl needs space you need to give it to her. No matter how much it hurts, because it's not only about you,right? I'm not saying to loose yourself in the process. You need to be strong for yourself as well. Don't move away or do anything drastic but give her some time to think. When scott and i were dating and had to be apart for 6 months it was then i realized what was really important to me. At least i had some clarity,ya know? Good Luck and keep us posted.

Nicole's Dreadlock Timeline: Recovery From Crochet, Going Natural


Member Journals and Timelines

9 KIDDOS!! Holy SH*T You must be one busy mama!!Nicole said:
Updated :)

Atom, I think that is your call. For me, I had to take them out. My dreading is a spiritual journey for me and I felt like I cheated by getting the crochet. I thought that was the only way to dread caucausin hair. I dont regret taking mine out at all. It was the best, albeit hardest, thing I have ever done. And I have 9 kids. lol. It was HARD to get them all out but we did. Now here I am on Day 30 of natural and I am SO happy I took them out. :)

My Fiance Is Leaving Me...


General Talk

I can honestly tell you that in 12 years i have never had 1 single doubt that we were meant to be together for better or worse. I was 16 when we met at a show and I said to my friend the next morning "i met the man i am going to marry!!" Not that we haven't gone through our shit, we have! we've been through it ALL! But even through the worst of it we knew that we were supposed to be together. If you truly believe that this girl is your soulmate than by all means go for it, i just don't want you to misinterpret your feelings of loneliness and fear of the unknown for true love, I am NOT saying that is what you're doing at ALL! Believe me i am the last one to tell you you're not right for eachother. EVERYBODY laughed at us when we first got together and said we'd NEVER make it! We did spend some time apart from eachother in the first couple of years not by choice (i was in a group home for teen girls) and a lot of other crazy shit BUT we always found our way back to eachother and while that may not help your pain now you have to believe that it will work out if it's supposed to and you WILL get through this no matter what, I promise!GreyGargoyle said:
Thanks, Sister Rags...

Laura, didn't you ever have doubts about your husband or him about you?
I'm just curious, you seem like the right person to ask.
