Life after Locks


General Talk

Sure, here's a before and after! (sorry if they're massive)

The decision wasn't based on a single thing, and definitely wasn't a snap decision. Essentially having dreads perfectly framed a certain time in my life. That part is now over and I left like I needed to move on. Part of me is looking forward to not being defined by my hair any more but I will really miss the opportunity to change peoples ideas and preconceptions. It took several months to accept that I was even considering it and then another couple to build up to it. No regrets but then it's only really the 2nd full day without them!

Life after Locks

I had dreads for 5 1/2 years and 2 days ago they were cut off. I still absolutely loved them but time for a change. They were cut to about 3 inches and then I sat with conditioner on for half an hour while me and my Mum teased them apart. I now have a short pixie hair cut :)

Obviously I can't comment on how it grows afterwards but I can't imagine it being too different, although the hair follicles will be more stimulated now what with more washing and brushing etc.

re: SE's "you will always dread again", way to over generalize! Yes a large proportion may, and yes a lot may want to but no, not everyone will redread.

dreadlock formal or wedding styling tips for african or caucasian dreads


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I thought I'd add a picture of my hair from my wedding a fortnight ago. I know how hard it can be to decide on a style that shows off the dreads nicely while also looking elegant!

I know I'm biased but I LOVED my hair on the day! Hope this helps someone!

Dreads & exercise


General Questions

I used to be big into scuba diving, only problem was getting a hood to fit over them! I'm now doing tae kwondo which is grand as long as I tie them back! Mine aren't that long in the scheme of things though.

First time getting dreads and my hair style is a long mohawk so a dreadhawk, i have some questions


General Questions

If you want to backcomb them I would recommend sectioning them a bit bigger than what you want them to end up because they will compact down as they mature

I have done everything 'wrong' and my dreads are awesome!


Dread Maintenance

Your dreads are lovely! I fall into the same camp as you - started with backcombing and wax and keep bands at the roots to keep them sectioned. I actually waxed until about a year ago and stopped because I got lazy! But they feel lovely, have never had gunk coming out of them and I wouldn't change anything about them!

Well said :)

Looking for some new dred advice...


Introduce Yourself

Thanks SE, I'm always worried about moulding :s when I say a while though I just mean like half an hour to get the excess moisture off, using a microfibre towel. But yeah if I wash them early enough I let them air dry, just don't like going to bed with a wet head! :)

Introduce Yourself

For drying I wrap them up in a towel for a while to get as much moisture out and then if it's at night blowdry them a bit. If it's early in the day I just let them dry naturally. That's all I do with them now other than check the sectioning.
