It's question time.... So some of you in this community may know, I am obsessed with beaver paddles. For those of you who don't know what those are, it's basically all your hair is one huge dreadlock.

So I have this theory that any hair left completely unattended would form these wonderous beasts. So I have a few questions for you guys.

My 3+ years with dreadlocks were spent on and off letting my dreads "hump" (grow together at the roots) and then pulling them apart when they really started to eat one another or "orgy".

So my questions are!!!

Does anyone who has dreads that are already formed and not have a wild hump fest going on on their head? By "already formed" I mean probably not freshies but dreads you've had long enough that alot of your new growth is dreaded If so, what hair type do you have, how long have you had your dreads, and what length are they?

ok bye

i finally did it.

ok, tonight, i was feeling depressed, and i was showing my friend kate what dread falls were. and so, i was like 'i'm going to do one, to see how i like it.' 1 ended up to two, then to five, then to ten, then to twenty, then to fifty six.

i have dreadlocks. i am aboslutely in love with them. i just backcombed. no wax. no rubberbands. almost, natural. tomorrow i'm getting some wax though, they are really messy. i think they look lovely.

i'm so in love.

i'm a dread head now. =] WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

While looking through some old things I came across an old lock of hair I'd saved. When I was thirteen I had long blonde hair down to my waist that always used to get in terrible tangles. One time it got so knotted up my mother had to cut it all off and I remember I was absolutly crushed. So in honor of that hair, I sewed the lock onto the end of my favorite dread and put a bead over the seam. Now it can knot up as much as it likes!

I just finished dreading most of my hair (I still have hair left in the back to do). It wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. :D

Got a few uncertainties about how my dreader dreaded. She tied the roots with rubber bands, to keep them separate. When she was done, she criss-crossed embroidery thread around them, to hold them together and to make them flexible later on.

Right now, I figure that I'll leave all this in until the knottyboy shampoo comes arrives, in a week or so. Is this plan healthy for new dreads, or should I take this stuff out? Please advise!
