Breaking congos, losing hair


Dread Maintenance

When they're dry, I just start at the root, and separate downward. It makes a ripping round and stuff. I thought it was normal, but I am losing some hair. Maybe I'm being too violent?

Should I do it when they are wet or dry?

Breaking congos, losing hair


Dread Maintenance

I had no progress for almost two months and, all of the sudden, POW! I have some amazing dreads in the making. I keep trying to break up congos, but they keep re-forming in the same areas, overnight. Also, when I break them up, I seem to be losing a lot of hair. Is this normal?

Backcombed dreads!??!? are they dooooomed!?


Introduce Yourself

On, my gosh! Your backcombed dreads look so beautiful on you! I don't think I've ever seen any that look that great that fast.I had backcombed, too, but it wasn't for me, so I took them out and went natural.To each her own! I have a friend with really rad backcombed dreads and hers never fully unraveled, but they loosened a bit.Just avoid touching them is the best advice, I think, to keep them from unraveling.

Straight-haired TnR addict???


Dreading Methods

I went to the Culture Shop and bought a 100% wool tam! I'll be sure to use it.

Straight-haired TnR addict???


Dreading Methods

I've been trying to dread naturally, but I find that, when I'm idle in a boring class, I start to twist and rip my loose strands without really thinking about it.My hair is really straight and not particularly keen on knotting up by itself, so I always think that I should help it along by just doing a little TnR here and there. But then my TnR eventually always falls out, and the cycle starts over.I've always been a pretty controlling person and very focused on blending in. I think neglect dreading would really be good for my personal growth, allowing me to show an individualistic expression, while allowing my hair, which I've always been very focused on, to do what it was meant to do.By this constant TnR, I'm not only wasting my time, but I'm breaking up valuable opportunity for my hair to knot itself, right?For some reason, I just have no faith in it.

New and Natural!


Introduce Yourself

Hey, I'm new to the site! I've had this site bookmarked for the past month I've been dreading, but just officially joined the community!When I first decided to get dreads, my roommate and boyfriend backcombed my hair (picture can be seen on my profile). I noticed how much time I was spending trying to make my supposed-to-be low-maintenance hair look anything short of ridiculous and decided backcombing wasn't for me and broke them up.My hair is relatively straight and I thought it would take ages for it to start doing anything, but I'm shocked at how quickly it started to section and I've already formed some legitimate mats at the base of my neck.My friends have all been very supportive of this endeavor, but my mother literally stopped talking to me when my hair was backcombed. When I combed them out, I told her, and she is back to talking to me again. However, I've neglected telling her that I only combed them out, only to start a fresh set of dreads...Since I'm at college, I don't see her that often and I figure I will just wait until she notices.Anyway, that's the story! I'm excited to be part of the community!
