18mths finer hair above and front of ears will not dread???


General Questions

my hair is baby fine around my ears and lower sides. its completely unknotted after almost 9 months of going natural. i've even tried to t & r some of it but it just comes out when i wash. i have a feeling its not going to dread at all. the hair there doesn't grow as long as the rest either. i have no idea what to tell you. i have a feeling we're just going to have to deal with it. maybe braid it and let the braid dread?

What is the average amount of dreadlocks for thin hair?


General Talk

me, too! just remember the hair will shrink and thicken up as it knots so they will get fatter. i'm only 8 months into my natural journey and far from that happening any time soon.

General Talk

i have thin hair but i have no idea how many i have so far. mine are sectioning into pretty small section. i'm not to keen on them being so small either. i have a few bigger ones that are developing much better. i just figure i'll let some congo later. i don't want too few though because i'm afraid i'll have too much scalp showing.

welcome, butterfly!

i'm in my 40's and i think this time in our lives is perfect for dreads. we aren't so worried about what others think of us anymore:) i say invest in some pretty scarves and headbands. it looks a bit more presentable to society whennecessaryand keeps the craziness out of your eyes. i've recently started pulling my hair back in a loose pony tail sometimes too. i normally only wear my hair up when i go out. make sure you give your hair equal time to hang freely. movement = knots.

Hair Washing.


Dread Maintenance

i was washing every other day when i started but i think that was undoing progress on my soft hair. i've gradually reduced my washings to twice a week now. its really helped my hair. everyone is different so you have to find what works best for you.

ps.. acv is apple cidervinegar

Tidying up dreads??


Dread Maintenance

i kind of know what your talking about. you get the weird undreaded strands of hair hanging from knotted ends. i've seen others on the boards mentioning cutting those strands off because they never fully suck into the dreads. also i've heard that you can weave stray hairs into the correctcorrespondingdread using a tapestry needle. i would look around on youtube and see what others are doing. i would stay away from a crochet hook though. i would really love to see pictures:)

beeping noise.


General Talk

its the live chat forum at the very bottom of the page. anytime i get on the site i turn off my sound on my computer. it drives me crazy to listen to the beeping over and over again.
