Dread Maintenance

They'll definitely fatten up. When I started my current set a year ago, they were pencil-thin. I've done pretty much zero maintenance on them since then (other than washing them, of course) and most of them have fattened up A LOT. Several of them are as like the size of my thumb. They'll shrink and kind of accordion on themselves (not sure how else to describe it) with age.

Out of curiosity, how old are your dreads?

Introduce Yourself

Hello everyone! So many gorgeous dreads around here. <3 I've had this site bookmarked for ages and I finally got around to signing up for a profile.

So, about me... I turn 29 next month. I love animals (have two cats and a Pomeranian). I'm really into video games, especially World of Warcraft. I spend a lot of time working on random art and crafts...needle felting, sculpting, painting, hemp jewelry, decoupage...whatever catches my interest at the time. I love camping but don't do it as much as I should, probably due to a rather severe spider phobia, haha. I collect unicorns.

I started my first set of dreads several years ago on a whim. One of my friends had dreads and she insisted I would look good with them too, but I resisted for months. Then I went to a music festival in a nearby town and saw a woman in her 50's or 60's with spectacular salt-and-pepper colored dreads and I was inspired. I started backcombing a few days later. Unfortunately I had zero idea of the proper way to make/maintain dreads at the time, so I used KnottyBoy's wax. I know, I know. After using it only once I decided that it was a horrible idea, but by then it was too late. I removed as much of the wax as I could, but when I combed them out a year later, there was still wax in the center. Eew.

My second set was started properly, without wax or "product", but they existed during a very drama-filled time in my life and I felt like there was a lot of bad energy tied up in them. I combed them out after just a few months and regretted it almost immediately. Shortly after that I started my third (and current) set of dreads. They just turned a year old a couple of weeks ago.

I'm not sure what else to put, so I'm going to go wander around on the site. Looking forward to meeting everyone! :D
