Dreadhawk Advice


Introduce Yourself

I cut my waxlocks off when they were about ten months old; when they actually started to rot, I don't know. I didn't know they were rotting; a problem had cropped up with my scalp - I had a weird allergic reaction to something -, which was what prompted me to cut the hair off. I sliced into the dreads vertically and combed/pulled the hair apart, and big globs of rotted, matted hair were just dropping off my head. An EXCELLENT example of why NOT to use wax...My mohawk isn't a super skinny one. The line where hair meets shaved kind of lines up with the natural arch of my eyebrows, the outer third of the eyebrows I guess. Ideally I'd just let it go natural, but it might be wiser to use a dread-friendly starter method, only because my boss may not tolerate the wholly unkempt initial phase. So, if it looks quasi-styled right off the bat, it's probably better. I know they look sort of goofy for a while regardless; I just mean it's better if she (and probably more importantly, our clients) can tell I'm starting dreads and not just forgetting to comb my hair, you know?

Dreadhawk Advice


Introduce Yourself

I don't currently have dreads, though I did at one time, about three years ago. I cut them because I started them with wax, and they ended up being rotted in the center. Anyway, I'm eager to go back to dreads and do it right this time, but I'm slightly hesitant because my hair is cut in a mohawk.

I'm not concerned about the 'hawk itself; I would keep it shaved where it's shaved and let the rest dread and grow long. However, the hair varies in length: at my nape it's only about two inches long, and gradually gets longer as it travels up the head, the longest parts being about six inches. I guess I'm a bit worried about how it's going to look once the dreading process begins and until the hair gets a bit longer.

Advice/support? I know I'm probably needlessly fretting a bit... ;P
