T& R on long hair


Dreading Methods

i dont have a good camera, but i am gonna let it go natural for a little bit and see if they turn out better. i know my hair will start dreading on its own in a few days. if they get too big, i'll try and half them. so i'll leave my little ripped one, and see how it turns out. if my hair isnt doing anything other than frizzing out in a week or two, i'll check the ripped one's progress and if i like what its doing, just do the rest like that. if not, i'll try a few with the back combing method. :D wish me luck. ^_^

T& R on long hair


Dreading Methods

Alright. I'm just planning on grabbing the pieces of my hair that are already sectioned neturally and dreading them. I'm using the t&r method and have one done.

but before i keep going i wanted to make sure i was doing it right. since my hair is so long when i was "ripping" it, it started knotting half way instead of closer to the scalp. so i twisted halfway and then ripped and followed it down. So my question is, when using this method, is it normal for the baby to be thick in some places, thin, thick, thin? and when i was finished the one is crazy frizzy. normal? or cause my hair is naturally curly?

if anyone has tips/videos they could share with me, i'd be very grateful. I'm heading into town, and then plan on checking back in before i try to do another one. ^_^

New and Hopefull.


Introduce Yourself

Hello. I'm new. ^_^

I've been thinking alot about getting dreads and have been prepping myself for this change. I know some people may not see this as a big deal, but in my eyes it is. It will be a big change and I want this to be a good step forward into a new chapter in my life.

I'm planning on starting mine in the next week or so. and I had a couple of questions.

My hair is about to my lower back, so i know its gonna take a little longer to do, buut i'm planning to do the twist and rip technique. Now, I'm latina and my hair is thick and pretty kinky.curly. I was just wondering if i do more of a thinner dread, if some of that curl will still be there. If anyone knows, let me know.

also, i WAS going to waste my non-existant monies and buy the products from dreadhead or some salon, but now that i've read through the site, i'm glad i decided to do one last info check. lol. But i was wondering, i did keep seeing some people mentioning using a salt/water spary mixture. Would that work/be beneficial with the twist and rip method of do i just not really worry about that.

I'm really hoping that once i get these babies going that they will look good. My plan is to just do the back of my head and keep the front part (the chunks that frame my face) loose from the rest. I do modeling and that way that can kinda create an illusion of curl if thats what the photo is looking for.

anyway. Thats my into. ^_^ I'm glad i stumbled across this site and look forward to meeting others who dont think that being dreaded is being a dirty hippie. ;)
