1 month old dreads and bald spot


Help! Save My Dreads

you presectioned in rather big sections in a fairly rigid pattern right? that's what caused that

down the line new dreads will fill in the gaps caused by the pattern and size of the sections

Threw out my comb today!


Introduce Yourself

yes all hair is so if you must use use sparingly

if you have hard water don't use bronners!

you can get teatree bronners

or lavanders anti mildew

www.dreadlockshampoo.com teatree rosemary is awesome

given your length id switch back and forth between liquid and bar..after using the liquid you'll have to separate lots more (it will dread faster or over dread... so switching to the bar will keep it manageable then you can balance speed with controllability

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

1 inch is generally the thickest..because they can congo by accident and end up 2 x 1 then 3 x 2 etc

yes when your at 3 inches that's like  an arm...

we have a few members with 2 inch thick dreads but they  take special care

we have 1 who has huuuuge dreads some like 1/3 of his head almost..but kinda shortish still (though haven't seen an update in awhile)

i can imagine they dry extremely slow and by now do pull painfully

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

exactly

f its like an inch connected..and not completely solid then by all means separate

once its solid its best to leave alone

again if its a few inches, and rather solid ..and way too thick ..its a judgement call you can separate with as little harm possible if done with extreme care and surgical precision .. but i don't recommend that ever for entire dreads, and always recommend that as a last resort and starting over by gently combing out and allowing smaller sections to dread is ofcourse preferable

i understand people years in not wanting to start over ..even 1 or 2 dreads

but you have to look at the total damage and the length of the section being damaged'

a couple inches compared to the entire dread length...

i really hesitate to recommend separation of anything that's solidly locked together.. even if its just an inch or 2 i say starting overs best but if you cant ..heres how to minimize the harm...

but if  its an entire lock.. i don't think theres any justification for that level of harm... 10 years dreading might come close.. but cutting off 8 years growth at the same time eliminates that justification altogether

cutting 8 years growth and splitting many into 3 or more..she should have just started over a whole new set and keot them a lil more controlled if that was her desire

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

think about how the hairs lie inside the dreadlock, chaotiicly criss crossing in every direction  twisting around eachother every which way, you split a dread like that and  literally every single hair in it  is shreaded into pieces of an average length of 1 inch

at that point..instead of splitting i would say comb it out let it resection and redread

id prefer to not let it get that thick so it causes issues, but once the issue exist the best thing to do is start it over...

ripping a dozen  hairs that are between..not inside a dread is 1 thing.. tearing straight down through the entire structure of a dread breaking every single hair .. quite possibly several hundred times per every inch of  dread length.. just isn't worth it

General Questions

after a point ..surgically cutting is the only option but l;octicians don't exercise surgical precision\

what id do is cut //like a mm in to the webbimng then pull  all i can repeat..like your just trying to release the bare min numbers of hairs to allow a lil separation

its a last resort  thing
