My Dreadlock Odyssey - TnR


Member Journals and Timelines

14 hours?? i would not have the patience for that. it looks good though and i'm sure it will lock up fast since your hair is a bit damaged from the bleaching.

I know everyone has a natural hair part but..

i think they're dense because of the crocheting. you could definitely do a conditioning with probably whatever you want to use. at 4 years you don't really need to worry about anything coming apart. i tried to loosen one of my sections with conditioner the other day and it wasn't going anywhere. mine are only 6 months. its really soft now though. lol:)

chunks of loose hair D:


Dread Maintenance

then just put a bead on the bigger chunks to encourage knotting and the rest of the loose hairs just leave it. i'm sure it will all work out in the end anyway. btw, i tried t&r and backcombing before going natural and none of the starter methods would stay in my hair either.

ive tryed t&r like twice and backcombing at least once! it just falls out in the shower :/ and ther arent any dreads close enough for the hair to go into... lol

i second the t&r on the bigger sections. if you have hair that belongs to one of the already locked up dreadlocks than you could use a tapestry needle and sew them into the correct one.

it doesn't look like thinning to me. it probably looks more pronounced though because your sections are more established now than in the beginning and the weight of your locks. you have less frizz than most people too which tends to hide the parts more.

super tight zig zags


Dread Maintenance

i tried that already. it didn't budge but its super soft now:/ i guess i'm just going to have to wait it out and see what happens. i think the only way to loosen it would be to cut it off and i'm not ready for anything drastic like that yet.

Try a little oil or conditioner on the section of hair where you are experiencing the pulling and see if that helps loosen it up.

super tight zig zags


Dread Maintenance

it seems to be the tighter they knot up they start to turn as they're climbing towards the root and i think the turning is whats causing the pulling on certain hairs.

Ah mine are all ridiculous shapes at the moment... I've got some that are zig zags from root to tip, and others that are huge at the tip and skinny at the root. Luckily no pulling on the scalp though, sounds tricky. If it's only a few hairs that are pulling I would just take a pair of small scissors and try to cut them at the root. Not sure what other options you might have, good luck!
