super tight zig zags


Dread Maintenance

oh wow. well, i hope i don't have to cut it because it will be about 6 inches long. mine are all different sizes. i have triangles, rectangles and squares. i'm not sure what will happen in the end. i guess i'm just going to wait and see. i just wish they weren't developing this way.

Same thing happened to me. I have bunches at the bottom of the majority of my dreads, but one in particular decided to form in the worst possible way (a four inch line, not a square shape). The tension on my scalp got too painful, and i tried separating it into two dreads, but it didn't budge. In the end, I had to cut off the dread glob and comb it out to let it start anew. I don't regret it at all... that shit was starting to hurt! Best of luck!

super tight zig zags


Dread Maintenance

i don't have one at the moment. you can see some of my zig zags from last months timeline pic on my page. they've shrunk up about 2 - 3 inches though. i think thats why this one dreadlock is so big. it's just gobbling all the hair from the bottom up and causing pain on my scalp.

yeah, i tried that. it's too tight. they aren't budging. i just hope i don't end up with a bald spot down the road from the constant pulling.

so my hair seems to like to zig zag up from the bottom and make a huge hanging mass on the ends. i have one that's pretty big and it has some hairs that are pulling on my scalp. i tried to loosen it today using conditioner and olive oil but its not budging. does anyone else have weird dreadlocks like me? how do i go about relieving the tension on my scalp without cutting the dang thing off? it seems to get tighter everyday. oh and the section is kind of triangle shaped, could that be the reason?

Dreads seem sticky after washing


Dread Maintenance

i got the stickiness too from dr. bronners. i stopped using it. i read online that most people that wash their hair with bs/acv or "no poo" usually pour the bs mixture on dry hair. the bs will bind to the oils on the hair and scalp. leave it on for about 5 minutes and then rinse. then do the acv rinse. i'm going to try this out myself sometime.

how bad will a beenie slowdown or hurt my natural dread process


Dread Maintenance

just be careful. there's a guy on youtube that wore a beanie all the time and it resulted in one massive beanie shaped dreadlocks. make sure you move your hair around in the hat and also take it off when you don't absolutely have to wear it.
