I want my dreads back!


Dreading Methods

Thanks so much! I'll be sure to keep all that in mind! :)

The back always looks worse at first because the baby dreads get all smashed from sleeping. Just have patience and they will look great!

Dreads mature differently, depending on where they are on your head, and how long and thick they are. For me, actually the back looks pretty good cause of all that laying on 'em, but the top is the slowest to dread.

I've read the thicker each actual hair is, the longer it takes. Don't know if this is true. FWIW, my hair is very fine, very curly and I have TONS of it - and I started by backcombing after trying a bunch of other stuff, and they are locking up REALLY well...Just ignore 'em for a while (while washing, of course); they tend to dread while you're not looking, LOL

3rd time's a charm, right?

I want my dreads back!


Dreading Methods

So I've had dreads twice before but I brushed them out each time.

Both times I kinda mixed the backcombing method and twist and rip method.

The front always looked nice (as nice as new dreads will look) but in the back they got REALLY loose and crappy.

I don't know if it was because my friend sucked at dreading my hair or if I was doing something wrong.

I never use wax or any other product on them.

I would use non-residue shampoo when I washed them and that's it.

I was just wondering if anyone could help me out and give me tips on what to do differently.

My hair is thick and extremely soft white girl hair.

So if anyone could help me out I would appreciate it :)
