Could I have natural dreads even though my hair is already long?


General Questions

my hair is long and its taking a long time to knot. i think it really depends on your hair texture. i have thin, soft hair but someone with course, long hair would probably lock faster.

UNCHARACTERISTIC RANT


Dread Accessories

unfortunately your not the only one. i've shared some of my tams in the past out of kindness and most have been super appreciative but i've also sent a couple as trades and never received anything. oh well. what do you do. it's a chance we take when we don't really know the people on here. i would suggest opening an etsy shop. it does cost a bit in listing fees(.20 cents each) and about 3.5 percent of the sales but at least you'll know they're going to pay you. {{hugs}}

shrinkage,lumps, balls, tails and loose roots!


Dread Maintenance

me, too! i'm glad i'm not alone. i personally hate mine. it's like a flat lump at the bottom of loose hair. mine have wimpy looking strings of hair hanging off the ends, too. definitely not what i had expected since most of the people i see on here have really pretty compact dreads with nice flowy ends. oh, well. what do we do. we can't choose the way our hair type wants to dread. hopefully we'll have something beautiful in the end:)

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

funny you mention this because i was thinking the same thing. i figure if the minerals in the hard water build up on my shower walls then they're most definitely building up on our hair and skin. probably why a lot of the things we try in our hair never seem to get it really clean.

So I've noticed lately that after washing my hair with BS/ACV My hair hasn't been feeling as clean as it was, felt odd, I don't really know how to describe it. So I started to think, I don't get a build up like others have said they have had (white mud), my scalp is very clean. My hair however has felt......odd. So for the hell of it I decided that I was going to use some of the Neutrogena Anti-Residue shampoo today, but like others, I don't find the smell that great. So, anyway, I thought, you know I've been putting rosemary oil (has definitely helped my dandruff ailment) in my baking soda, why couldn't I put it in the shampoo. My hair now feels clean again and smells wonderful! I've been pondering whether or not my hair water could start to build up in my hair over time because my scalp was very clean with the baking soda. I think I'm going to start using the Neutrogena shampoo maybe once a month. Thought someone might find it helpful. Any thoughts?

Need opinions!


Dreading Methods

i met a girl with butt length dreads and asked her a ton of questions. i was saying how fine and thin my hair is and it's having a hard time dreadling. she said that hers was baby fine(you'd never know) and she said that her hair dreaded best when she cut it to her shoulders. she did t&r. she had tried dreading her hair when it was longer and it just wouldn't hold up. maybe the thickness of the shoulder length hair helps on us thinner hair folks. now i wish i had cut my hair before starting. also, being in my 40's doesn't help because my hair was much thicker 20 years ago. boo:(

I agree, however....the part of my hair that I did comb out...I haven't been brushing after washing, just neglecting. And it isn't doing anything. It's been 3 months. So.....with that in mind, I have a hard time believing my hair will dread naturally without some help. It's very very baby fine and now super thin (I think I'm gonna cut) and it just doesn't seem to want to dread. I don't know. But I do think that is my preferred method, if I felt it would work.

My opinion: go naturalllll. Screw the TnR, just let your hair do its thang. That's all it wants to do, anyway :D
