Starting dreads on a 7 year old


General Questions

liquid for young dreads bars when mature.. though if her hairs dreading too fast and outta control u might want 1 of each  and switch back and forth the liquid makes it dread real fast meaning more separting early on  if your separating too often use the bars to slow the dreading a bit

seloarate by pulling dreads away from eachother

once they start forming sections and clumping together  separate any that form too big (over 1 inch at the roots) or when 2 dreads try to '"congo" which means growing together at the roots trying to merge into 1 dread

Starting dreads on a 7 year old


General Questions

1 don't trust raging roots 2 dreadlockshampoo.com is the best!

1 her hairs pect for naturally dreading! meet gilly https://www.dreadlockssite.com/gillys-mum/gallery/all/p=1

1 month.jpg

note gillybeans dreads are only 1 month old here they dreaded this beautifully in just a handful of weeks

gilly started dreading naturally at 6 years old or was it 5  around here shes a star!

2 if she cant sit still let them dread themselves! but if you insist on tnr  yes  you can do 1 a day even

3 that's false they do not need to look any particular way  no you cant make them look neater without damage and they will get messier before getting neater. natural dreadings more gradual so oftens more easily accepted as its not a sudden change. however  theres numerous ways to justify dreas as being spiritual or religios 'any sincerely held belief' wich can simply mean that she believes  dreads are the natural state of hair and she wants too live a natural lifestyle.

4 in all my life having dreads, knowing people like the move group, working in all black hoods, working with rival gangs from all black schools, I had never once had anyone with real dreads ever say anything about my dreads..not 1 and i had thousands of true rastas as friends straight out of jaimaica

nor had i had 1 black person on the streets or anywhere ever say anything  except how much they loved my dreads.

my best friends white with dreads and through dj'ing at a Ugandan bar most of her friends are straight out of Africa..not 1 ever said a thing

you know who does say things a lot? locticians! racists who themselves are appropriating dread culture with fake salon 'locs' who are so ashamed of dread culture they won't even call them dreads or locks.

all cultures, not just black culture wore dreads since beginning of time.

this is culture

appropriation is the imitation of a culture

the culture  is about  spirituality about  living a pure life

not about commercializing and imitating a hairstyle

these are cultural appropriation

o.jpg5720e8fff1b73d70ba13fa96ea14f6c5.jpg

see the diference? 1 is so afraid of even being associated with the culture they are appropriating they spend 20 thousand dollars  and  even change the name of the style from locks to locs

they want the style but to be completely separate from the culture

its only those who are really guilty of appropriating culture that ever bring it up, and they are racist.. and very very few

in fact,i have only encountered it online never in person

in person i always get nothing but respect from others of all races.

5 only thing you haven't considered is letting them dread naturally

because kids will not like about 16 hours of hair pulling  i would only recommend natural for kids

crochet hooks are terrible and extentions should never be added to dreads not mature enough to  hold them ..now most people who add extentions hate them and chop them ff

the gap is likely from too big of sections

and finaly you will have 4 inches of loose hairs till nearly mature..dont do anything about it

but do wash your hair the more its washed the quicker it dreads
