Hi, I’m a lurker..I don’t have dreads yet, as my hair’s only about 3-4 inches long, but I’m considering getting them? Why? I don’t like fucking around with my hair everyday for one-I have very curly, wavy, chaotic hair and I constantly have to rip tangles out of it..annoying and painful. I also like the fact that it would be an exercise in patience and concentration, something I could use to center myself..as cheesy as that sounds. I have a friend who has really great dreads. They’re all symetrical, nice and smooth, very clean looking, and most importantly, REAL. Ideally, I’d like dreads like that also..so a few ?’s:

What’s the best way to make dreads that are equal size, smooth and tight?

How long should my hair be, ideally, before I start dreading?


How good is that “spring in the hair” technique work, and HOW does it work-is it just like you section of the hair, slip it on at the roots, and move it down as the hair inside the spring dreads? I believe someone said this produced good dreads in about 6 weeks time??

Sorry if I’m asking too many questions for you all..

(no subject)

how do you make those little beaded wrap things for dreads? jahtribe, like the ones in your dreads....

...it's amazing what will come up for an internet search on "seed beading dread wrap" ...(specifically this. *hee hee* ;)
