Help! Save My Dreads
whoa that will be really big when mature do you want a dread that big sticking up ontop off your head
are sections bigger then say a quarter or 1/2 dollar..1 inch/ they look it
plus you NEED TO REMOVE WAX
thats top priority. when the wax is removed you will probably find next to no dreadings happened since day 1. so if you decide the sections are too big it will be easy to start over right
so wax b gone is top priority 1srt off
they can take 3-4 days to dry thats high mold potentialmk people who have huge dreads do so for religious reasons and its their burden to bear thyey only wash very rarely (sometimes once a year) avoid swimming and getting them wet. they endure pain and suffering as a religiousd burden.
pussy sores cause the locks are so thick you cant get your fingers under them to clean the scalp.
i know people with way fatter but they take extreme care (and they are all natural)
id start with the ones that bother you most soak in conditioner and very slowly gently brush or comb out brush is gentler buy=ut slower.,. it will take time and a lot of conditioner.. and the crochet would have broken hairs by the thouysands so ypou'll have handfuls of hair on the floor after.
then let them dread naturally. or if you must, twist and rip.. but no bigger then 1 inch at the scalp..less is better at 1 inch they will take about 15 hours to dry and thats with a good bit of blow drying over that time ()9less in hot sun)
a 3 inch dread (yours look like 2?) can take days and days to feel dry, but still be damp in the core..perfect for growing mildew and mold and "dread rot"
if you want to keepo them real thick consider a lavender vinager rinse at times to kill miold spores and plan on using rot knot every couple months at lerast
lots of thoughts
1 crochet is just horrible abuse
2 dreads that fat are nearly guaranteed to mold, three folded tips only drasticly increase that probability
3 sewing them together ..is just strange i mean they join together if you dont separate
4 why should they be symmetrical? symmetry is the least of your concerns. the thickness the very slow dry times and the eventual potential pain issues aree far more of a concern.
ok so, was it sewn with thread? can you find the thread and snip it out extremely carefully?
it was kinda unethical of them to do this without warning you about all the potential issues ..like how do you clean a scalp you can't even get at..you might get pussy sores under the thicker dreads.
you are going to have to find the threads and snip them anyd hope you can get them undone..might need to comb the tips out to do that
