Sooo, much to my surprise (not), I'm growing my mohawk into a dread hawk! I had a dread hawk for about three years, a few years ago, but my mother attacked the back with scissors one night while I was asleep, so I just shaved them all off. (I still have them, too.)
Now, I'm back, with a rat tail, chelsea, AND dread hawk (the rat tail might become a dread; I'll ponder). Plus, I don't live with my mother!
ANYHOW, my question for you beauties is this:
What can I use besides beeswax? Anything vegan friendly? Maybe just hairspray? :)
(I checked the memories, but I couldn't find anything of this nature.)
Hello everyone! I have been a long time fan of dreads but I was always hesitant to get them for some reason but Ive diced Im going to do it. Im good with reading on how to do it but its easier if I have someone helping me, so if any of you live in phoenix AZ I would love your help, I would buy everything needed and if you want I would be willing to pay you! Please help, you all seem nice and always helpful so Im sure someone here will be willing to help.
Hey all! long time reader first time poster!
I have dreads! ive had them for almost 3 months now...i love 'em!! :-D
I have a question that I hope somebody might be able to offer an answer to.
My dreads are only about 3 1/2 months old at this point, but I've noticed something a bit disturbing. At least to me anyway. I'm getting these bumps in my locks all over the place. Like, the dread will get these little "hills" in them that looks like a whole clump of hair is just popped out in one tiny place. I've tried to crochet them back into the rest of the hair, but it just doesn't do anything for it. Sometimes wearing a bead over those places kind of squish it in a bit, but it's still an issue. Does anyone knows what causes this and/or what can be done to fix it? Is it something to be worried about or something I'm doing weird?
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
Two questions: 1) How does one make / buy those dread wraps (I assume they're called..) where cloth or some material is wrapped around an individual dread. 2) Where are some places aside from dreadheadhq and knottyboy that sell big hats that would fit over dreads well? I dont' like crushing mine (only 2 months) under regular hats.
