almost brushed it all out :(


Dread Maintenance

thanks, daNi. i'm really trying to hold on here but there are definitely days when i'm done with the whole thing. i really do have the worst hair for this. lately i've just been stuffing my hair into hats. i don't even want to look at it. i added a bunch of beads last week in hopes of encouraging knotting. now i'm thinking that maybe just taking them out and letting my hair do what ever it wants and not separating for a very long time might be the best thing.

i've thought about bangs and i do have hair in front that isn't dreading or sticking together at all but it isnt much so it wouldn't be much of a bang. i don't have much hair in the front and sides compared to the back. i think if i did bangs it would just be one more thing to mess with and i really don't want the trouble.

i've heard of no poo but i love to wash my hair and i would seriously miss it. i'm trying to reduce the frequency of my washings down to twice a week instead of three in hopes of more knotting in between washes.

thanks so much for the support. i don't get much of it at home and its nice to know that there's an online community of wonderful people willing to offer people some words of encouragement. {{hugs}}

Did Dr. Bronner's Undo My One Month Neglect Progress?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

just so you know, eyeheartchrist does comment on one of his early videos when someone asks how he got his hair to lock up so short he says he used to mess with it. on another video he shows some of the sections he recently t&r'd. i personally don't care what he did to get his amazing dreadlocks but i wanted you to know so you didn't think you were failing somewhere because you couldn't get your hair to lock up at that length.

we're twins! lol:) your hair is a lot thicker than mine though. yours will probably blend in with the rest of your hair.

and as you can see they just dangle from about 6 inches of loose hair.

my hair is wavy on top and curly underneath. its really soft loose curls though. of course these crazy ones are right in front framing my face. they're about 6 inches shorter than the rest of my hair, too. ugh.

well at least i'm not alone. i looked for pics all over the internet for people with dreads like this and couldn't find any. it started with the ones that were backcombed but now some of the natural hair is doing it too. its so weird. it's like flat paddle dreads.i'm really hoping they round out because i'm actually considering undoing the ones that are like this. i have 5 of them. the ends sucked up to so i'm worried they will be blunt tipped which is definitely not what i was hoping for.

i think i have the same thing. my hair zig zaged from the bottom up and now i have a clump of zig zags just hanging at the bottom. theyre really tight too. i personally hate them and hope that it all equals out over time.
