hug me till you drug me baby

so, I finally got two of my friends to upload pictures that show off my dreads, here they are:

that one is my dreads at the age of about 3-5 months. I think they're pretty good except for a fair amount of frizz. my mother disagrees, but that is the nature of mothers I suppose.

in this, my dreads are younger, and they're flying around because I am dancing. it also shows off one of my tattoos, but it's not very clear I dont think.

Hey, I'm new here ;)

I've been watching this community FOREVER, even before I had dreads. But now that I've had my glorious locks for a few weeks, I have a question.

I know it's okay to palmroll whenever they need it, but is it okay to backcomb that often as well? Because I find that in the mornings, my locks are a little loose and messy, so I backcomb them a little to tighten them up. I do this maybe every other day.

Is that okay for them?

I guess I need some encouragement. I feel like my dreads look like absolute shit, especially compared to a lot of all of your pictures. I’ve had mine for 7 months now, and maybe they are in their “akward” phase or something.. does anyone have some tips for me? I use the shampoo and wax from Dreadheadhq and use salt water sometimes. Mine get really curly and one side doesn’t look as good as the other.. I love them, they are my babies but I just feel discouraged
Sorry the pics are kinda weird..

i finally washed my hair today. after washing it, the dreads seemed to come together a lot better. i was shocked and enthralled all at once.

i used dr. bronners hemp lavender shampoo. i LOVE that shit.

thanks to everyone for the tip-a-roos!

how often does everyone wash their hair and how often do you backcomb?

thanks again, folks!!!!
