dread roots?


Dread Maintenance

Okay, cool. Thanks!

you just might have a slower pace. i'm at 8 months & forget about roots tightening i barely have any looping (so no shrinking yet either). eventually you will get there, they just may be on the longer end of the scale & need more time than others.

But I have had my dreads for more than a year, Do you mean sic=x months from now? I mean I know eventually they have to lock. Or else everyone with dreads would have a lot of regular hair and some dreaded tips.

DO I just leave it alone?

In due time.

I know that that's not an exact measurement of time, but it'll have to do. Baby locks have between 1-3 inches of straight hair at the roots. They will lock up, though. When they are mature, it shrinks to about 1/4 - 1 inch of straight hair.

Locks go through 3 main stages. First they shrink a ton. This when much of the actually knotting is taking place. Then they go through a stage where they seem to no grow at all, but they don't shrink either. This is the stage you are looking for. That when the roots really start matting and knotting up. Then they grow like crazy.

I'd say around the 6th month (average), is when you see your roots really start to tighten

Tye Dye Cake.


Dreads and Diets

It was my birthday yesterday. (15th)

I found a picture of a tye dye cake, and knew I had to have it. The recipe for it didn't really come out tye dye, so I adjusted it and got this! Just thought I would show you guys, cause I'm pretty proud of it. Except the icing job, I had never done it before so it's pretty bad. :P I know it doesn't have to do with a certain diet or anything but it fits best in the category. c:

xxox

Peace.

This is gross; I need help with a lice issue.


Dread Maintenance

Gross I know, I have had my dreads for a little over a year. I did the back combing method. Just a little bit of information on them before I go into detail.

I have never had lice before, you see. I have no idea how to deal with them to start with but the fact that I have dreads is making it a lot more difficult. I just started High school, and that's where I got them. I think. It's not bad, but I

I'll do anything to get rid of them but keep my locks, but I am on a time frame (Big family=Lots of hair at risk, so I got to make this quick.), so whatever works quickest is what I need to do. I'll even bleach them if I have too. I am taking tomorrow off of school to take care of this, plus a long weekend.

I'll do anything to keep my dreads. I really don't want to shave my head, high school is hard enough.
