will these dreads grow out?


Help! Save My Dreads

mature isn't measured by texture nor by tightness but by when they stop changing so much ...and are growing well past the shrinking stage

how old are they

if they are not into the 2nd year then your concerns are extremely premature

any crocheting may delay maturity

they will grow they  have to grow but they can't grow till they finish shrinking

I think I'm going to start over

crocheted dreads just take longer to dread and stay stiff for years

all dreads shrink before they grow..you will never see growth before the 2nd year

absolutely not if your helping with the frizz then your  preventing it from dreading

the roots tighten as they mature, they will loosen a lot before tightening

forced tightening of the roots can even cause balding

read the dreaducation page thoroughly

you want nothing but a dread shampoo and toi give them time they will do it all on their own

they will thicken a lot but if you think 40 isn't enough 50 would be thinner still

how were they started

what did you do and use

I think I'm going to start over


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

yea that's exactly what i would expect to see after hearing what she did to them

the very 1st thing i would do is demand a full refund, tell her that she did extreme damage to your dreads and used 2 of the top 5 worse methods on them..

its likely you wont get a cent back (they do charge a higher hourly rate then most lawyers!) but the point is  to make a point.. that you feel you were harmed by what she did, and now have to suffer the heartbreak of starting over

they need to know they can't keep doing this to people or people will demand refunds

this has worked to get most..but not all to stop using wax.. so it is worth being vocal about how you feel about what she did

now your right you are probably better off starting over ..but it might not be absolutely  essential.. yes they will take areal long time to lose the stiffness and to lose the thinness

and yes there will be permanent harm

but if you really can't bear to start over they can slowly recover and at least naturalize to a point

you posted in emotional support not salon/loctician recovery so i think your beyond "i'm thinking i'm going to start over" and are more to the point of being ready to start over and just wanting to have support for the devastating emotional trauma you feel from being betrayed and mislead by someone who portrays themselves as a professional

well... this site.. in the past (when wax was all the rage) literally had 1/2 its members having to start over..more then once

so you will get all the support you need here.. many here decided to start over not because of problems caused by the chosen methods but simply because the chosen method didn't feel right in the long run

thousands of this sites members have gone through exactly what your going through...

and every last 1 of them was much happier after starting over right..

you will be too.. if that's the path you choose
