crazy dreads turn normal ?
seems like the shapes are getting crazier by the day ad the hair is knotted up feels like dread some pretty tight at times
ok i in no means want uniform salon looking dreads that look fake , and im not complaining at all i know my hair is locking very fast , but just a question.. i am aboout 2 months in i started tnr and all my sections are starting to dread for the most part but very very crazy shaped dreads like hearts and curled up snakes none the same , and none look like a normal dread.. my question is will they change to look more like a dread ?? and how long usually does it take for them to look like a dread from here??
i only have noticed the build up in one dread , i guess several was a bad word , i used knotty boy about 5 times , i used a lush shampoo maybe 2 and the loc up shampoo once about 8 washes more or less , what can i use asa residue remover, maybe i was using salt water way too much id even spray twice a day sometimes and leave it in untill i washed my hair ...
i have been dreading for about a month now and i noticed when i sqeezed and kind opened one of my tighter locs there was a white waxy residue , ive been trying alldiffrent dread shampoos just recently started using the one from dreadlockshampoo.com the one for locking new dreads , ive only used that once , i think i used the knotty boy the most , ive never used wax ever , and i do spray my hair with salt water alot.. what can it be and how can i get rid of it , and never see it again. i spray the salt water lightly once a day but it dries fast and i wash my hair about twice a week ..
thanks im just a little worried also about shrinkage and not being able to put them back , but either way you are right 6 months is a long time ill see how they are 5 months from now lol
6 months is a lot of time, maybe your hair will be locked up by your wedding, if not you can always tie your dreads in the back of your head or something.
I have crochetted dreads, i'm currently recovering them, so my advice is just keep it natural, crochette hook is really bad for your hair ^^
