I was wondering if anyone has cut their fat dreads in half? Mine are pretty big and I like most of them. I have a few in the front that I would love to cut in half (tearing is not an option, they are too tight) but I have been scared I would end up with a pile of hair on the floor and none on my head!
I have not used any products in my dreads but I am not against a little beeswax to keep them together after cutting.
Any advice?

Hey all.

I'm pretty new to this community, and I really want dreads. My hair is pretty short, though. I was hoping to put it in little baby dreads the week after thanksgiving.

Just a few pics of my dreads.
Here's some info on them.

Age: almost 3 1/2 years
Hair Type before dreading: straight fine hair dry hair with oily scalp
Process: Just let em clump and pulled those clumps apart. I do different stuff to em now but for about 2 years they only saw shampoo and the elements.
One thing I've learned about dreads is they definitely get better with age :)

hey, Im sure ive asked this before but i thought i'd ask again. A friend of mine brushed out her dreads of 6 months, hers were quite thin but. Im going to brush mine out this weekend - tomorrow, and i have thick dreadies, just under 4 month old dreadies, anyways, is there a technique as to how to brush them out. the reason im doing this is because my dreadies dont resemble dreadies, its more mess really, and i cant deal with them, I also have the worst dandruff, rash on my shoulders, chest and back and i cant deal with the itchies, but i would like them back in, after i figure everything out, order my knotty boys anyways if anyone has any good tips tell me..that would be great. advance
i am however going to get them back in before christmas -
