Thinking about cutting loose and starting again.


Dread Maintenance

I think that you should just leave your hair alone and give it time. Condition them and pick them out with a rat-tailed comb if you can... but don't resort to cutting. That will set you waaaaay back. I personally don't think your dreads look bad at all. Eventually, they will dread, you just need to be patient. If you feel that you must resort to cutting, I would only cut off a little bit, off of each dread, every two weeks... like... a gradual process. My hair was permed, (I'm a girl, btw, lol) and i gradually cut off my hair every two weeks as opposed to chopping it all off to grow my hair out naturally to dread it. So... do one of those options instead. My hair is super springy (I'm black Lol) just like yours and I can imagine how it would feel to have to cut off, what took so long to grow.... so weigh out all of your options before you go for the big chop. but trust me... if you leave your hair alone EVENTUALLY it WILL dread.

Using honey as bad as wax?


Introduce Yourself

I dont understand this whole needing wax to twist, thing??? Neither honey nor wax, dreads your hair.... AT ALL. The most it will do is hold your twists together...and thats what they will be... twists. Because the stickiness will not allow your hair to knot together. You can twist you hair without wax (dont over twist or it will cause dramage) and get the same result. twists doesnt necessarily make dreads... it just guides your hair into a section. I also dont think that you are understanding the fact that there is no way in this world or the next that you will have dreads by Jan 12th. Not real ones anyway. Good dreads take time and patience. Lose the honey, gain some patience and your hair will look awesome.

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


Introduce Yourself

I don't think that you are doomed. Unfortunately what damage that has been done, has been done. I backcombed mine too, and they unraveled... so i let them do their thing... and two months later they are already tightening up. All i do is keep them separate.
