will a bead round out a dread?


Dread Maintenance

so stay away from glass beads or don't get chased by cops while on a skateboard? LOL:)

yes, the bead is round. it's bone and not super heavy. i can't feel it when it's on unless i swing my hair around or something. i need to make sure i don't turn my head too fast though. it hangs right by my eye and i don't want to go blind. lol;)

natural dreads timeline dreading fast as can be


Member Journals and Timelines

oh! i have that one! i haven't used it in a while though. i'm going to have to dig it out and try it again. i love the cooling feeling it leaves on your scalp:) btw, they carry it at target and it's cheaper. i think i paid $5.99. it's in the cosmetics section.

will a bead round out a dread?


Dread Maintenance

so i have these weird, flat, paddle like clumps of hair hanging from some of my locks. i guess my hair likes to knot from the bottom up. anyway, i have one in particular that bothers me because its HUGE. after i washed my hair today i kind of rolled it into a tube shape and put a big bead on it. i like it much better now but will it be a problem later if i leave that bead on? will the bead help the hair compact and round out over time? also, the rest of that dread is still locking up will the bead slow down the process because of the weight or something?

thanks for the help:)

Tams really do help


General Talk

wool works because it grips the hair and causes friction. i wear acrylic tams too but the hair just glides over the fibers. won't help your hair knot but it won't hurt it either. i wear my wool tam to bed too. during the day i wear it lose when i'm home but if i go out i'll put on a scarf or throw on a tam.

13 months into natural dreading...


General Questions

it would definitely be a last resort. i hate them because i have thin hair and they're heavy and cause pulling on my scalp and its really uncomfortable. the bottoms are about 2 - 3 inches wide and the rest is developing thinner than a pencil.

dreads thrive on a positive vibe

learn to love everything they do no matter what they do

13 months into natural dreading...


General Questions

i have some of those, too. they look like big, flat, matted paddles. i personally hate mine but i've been told on here that they will change and compact over time. i guess if they don't then i can cut them off when my hair grows long enough.

Denise's Neglect/TnR Timeline ~ *UPDATED January 17, 2014*


Member Journals and Timelines

most of my sections are knotting on the ends so it would require me to undo them. i've waited this long so i guess i'll just have to see if they start to really go crazy. soon i hope. i'm giving it a year and then i'll decide if i need to do anything to help it along.
