how does a dread become the size of the root?


General Talk

it only is a fraction of the size if you twist or interlock or crochet

otherwise its  roughly about the section size

its pretty simple when you say hair has a space between them this is true 1/10th of 1 mm on average (10 hairs per mm is average hair thickness) but remember dreads  knot up, tighten and shrink

in a healthy dread ..unless the hairs really thin the section size and dread size will be about the same. even in very thin fine hair  its only a fraction smaller like 10-25% (that's a rough guess)

that's because dreads thicken up..alot while they shrink

that drawing the dread size since your hairs not real thick  the yellow circle would be just inside the green

look up chevelle trant on here.. hers started out waist length and most thinner then a pencil

when they dreaded they shrunk to above her shoulders, and got really fat

its not the hairs falling out that makes them thicken.. you lose about 120 hairs a day but it takes 7 years for every hair to fall out and be replenished

so since your drawing has a dread about 1/3 the size of the section it would take 21 years for fallen out hairs to triple the thickness

instead its just shrinking thickening and more or less conforming to the section size unless you do something that forces them to be thinner by over tightening them

Hi. New dreads (2 weeks)


Introduce Yourself

all techniques are damaging but yea making them real tight is super counter productive before ever using it again read all the info on  here on crochet

every use only makes you have to use ikt more to fix the damage from the last use

though it looks like you didn't over do the crocheting so you might have lucked out and not have any big problems

Hi. New dreads (2 weeks)


Introduce Yourself

welcome and congrats ..but the crochet was a very bad mistake

typically (if tight) it prevents any dreading at all for 6 months (just 1 use) and takes 3 years or so to recover from and causes extreme damage

so throw the hook in the trash and don't use it again

Looking for anyone with dreads they have cut off to give away?


Dread Maintenance

the breakage is from the palm rolling damage

stop palm rolling ..that wont fix the damage but it will prevent it from getting worse

had you done anything else not listed like crochet or interlocking that may also cause breakage
