ALL dreads are beautiful. And if you don't believe so you should just leave..Soaring Eagle said it perfectly, the guys hair looks damaged. Don't let him be your role model. Trimming loose hair off of dreads is not okay!! (listened to 5 seconds of 2nd vid.)
If you want awesome dreads stop brushing for two weeks, then GENTLY TnR sections that will serve as the 'blueprint' to your dreads. After that, wash, separate, and let. them. be. !! Maybe you should stop by the dreaducation section of this site?
Hope everything goes well, happy dreading.
Wow. Those poor locs. If only they had done their research..
Just give it time hun. My whole family, aside from my step dad, HATED my locs. One year later now, my mom has 'gotten use to them' and will occasionally grab one and try to tickle my face with the whispy end.
Just keep doing what you wanna do, the only one who can live your life is you. I know it hurts having family be mean to you, but eventually they'll come around and get over it when they see how happy you are
Have you tried any DLS soap? Its a little spendy but totally worth it. Its hard for hair to start knotting thats shorter than 6 inches, but dont fret, it'll get there. It just takes time time time.
We're all friends here, so lets be honest, I know I'm not the only Weirdo here, (and I say that w/ love). So in keeping with this topic, I wanna see ya'll gettin funky! Nothin makes your day better than a photo of a fellow dreadhead bein strange, am I right? Makes me smile everytime I've seen a couple different threads of 'beautiful dreads' (which they all are) or the dangers of crocheted dreads, but i wanna see you and your dreads bein goofy! So lets get this thread goin :D
Sooo yeah there's me during some of my glory moments, lol. I realize I dont have my dreadies in all of these..but still. So its your guys turn! Lets all have a good hearted laugh ) stay knotty!
