Reasons not to crotchet: 1. Puts holes in your dreads 2. Traps water in your hair becAuse it cannot flow off. 3. Because of this there is an increase in chance for dread rot to occur. 4. Is known to cause hair breakage

Brick Laying Method when starting my Dreadlocks?


Dreading Methods

Thanks The-Pygmy Page, gonna use this advice. Looks like it could be quite the journey!


The-Pygmy Page said:

brick layer sections are good to make sure your dreads don't show much scalp on the back give a nice full look . Mine are majority brick layer but of course some are not all the same and I have a few lil sections that made themselves from loose hairs becoming baby dreads .it is okay if they aren't all the same size . unless you are looking for that all perfect same size look.

Brick Laying Method when starting my Dreadlocks?


Dreading Methods

Thanks Ixchel for the advice, I think I will go for grid, however, different sizes. 1 inch and 1 and a half inch. One last question.. will my dreads be as thick as the root sections eventually?


Ixchel said:

you can do triangles or fans instead (http://www.doctoredlocks.com/catalog/Braid-and-Dreadlock-Sectioning...) or just grab bits & pieces as you see fit, you don't really have to follow any sort of grid. or let your hair section itself for a few days/weeks & then use your natural sectioning. variety & variation is good, helps them look natural & have a "flow" to your head. even if you do a grid they may not keep to it very well, dreads have a tendency to do what they want ;)

Brick Laying Method when starting my Dreadlocks?


Dreading Methods

Hi everyone, im worried about the bricklaying method of sectioning my hair. Because the sections at the front/sides will be half the thickness every other row. Has anyone done this method and are there advantages and disadvantages. Sorry if it sounds stupid, but I want to get it right..

Thank you,

Leon Brendan Davis.
