Yeah mine are TnR, and it's only 6 maybe 7 inches long (my hair). But the loops are like 4 inches now. I'm going to start letting them congo.

if you start with shorter hair they don't really shrink as much, at least at first, sometimes later on they will. t & r doesn't shrink as much either from what I've seen, although I'm sure they can.

Needed: A Professional Loctician


General Questions

they're just pointing out that wax and lockticians are the worst ways to get dreads.

Wax- they are gross to touch, they stick out alot more and are in general very dirty. This site has an entire section on how to remove wax! For the well-being of your hair i'd suggest you research on this site a bit more to find the best way for you to dread.

Locticians-They often use the crocheting method, which is very damaging makes you think you need to see them often for touch ups and cost alot. Crocheting is not a recommended start for dreads here.

So my advice is do more research on this site, check out the faq, read the forums a few times a day and you'll learn alot.

In general the most recommended ways to start dreads go from natural/neglect, then Twist n Rip, or Back Combing.

And heres some of the links that i recommend but definitely not limited to you check out:

Ok, easy. Please. I was all by myself when I chose to do this. I had no friends who had dreads, no one I knew could DO them and the research I did WAS alot and led me to where I was at the time. My dreads looked fine when I did them, I just want them again. I am a stay at home military mom/wife. give me a little credit. All I asked for was if someone could do them, not your personal opinion. Jeeps!

ACV confusion


Dread Products

i think you can cut down the BS soak to 10 mins max, then rinse then do the acv then rinse again.

i just use a small water bottle and old 1L pop bottle and just add a splash of both

a little worried about my locks after discovering this site, eek!!


Help! Save My Dreads

well the longest ive read most people here go without washing their hair is a week, so that definitely part of it. Wash 1 day after you notice its getting oily. so that may be one part of the issue

Twist & rip question


Dreading Methods

all methods are partially neglect, tnr, back combing, and everything else is just a kick start all dreads take the same process at one point - do nothing.

dont expect them to look good for a while, they are going to loosen and tighten and do their own thing.

Twist & rip question


Dreading Methods


your supposed to have some room at the root, as the dreads mature that length shortens, but theres always gonna be a bit so they'll never be tight and uncomfortable. And as with any method its just a kickstart, only do it once and then its a waiting game just like neglect.

So dont worry about it, its gonna be like that for a while and its supposed to.

Now ready to start the process after many many years


Introduce Yourself

BC.... and wax....


Introduce Yourself

its not so much the BC thats the issue, its the wax. 1 application will stay in the hair even with regular washing years later. They prevent the hair from moving and knotting to make real dreads, right now he just has waxy look-a-likes. There is entire sections dedicated to info on why its bad and how to remove wax, so i suggest getting that stuff out first
