im on my second set of dreads (does it help if i mention they're only 2" long?) and i have sort of a silly question.
last time i think i washed them too soon after i put them in. probably 3 or 4 days after i think. anyway i put these in on sunday. i've been thinking about when to wash them first. at first i thought sunday...one week after, but then i started to think a little more. i know about the whole clean hair locks better thing...and i've also heard the longer you wait at first the better.
so i was just wondering what everybody thinks/your experience. longer the better. week-ish. or just when ever i start to feel dirty?
Hey everyone. I just joined the community at the suggestion of my roommate, oh_so_humpy. I want to start dreading my hair soon (ideally tomorrow), but I'm a little concerned about the length of my hair. It's fairly short, probably 6 inches at its longest, and 1 inch at its shortest (in the back). It reaches about to my ears (I'd post a picture but I don't have a camera or any recent photos). My roommate thinks my hair is too short to do it, but I've read about people dreading hair shorter than mine. I guess I was wondering if anyone had encouraging (or discouraging) experiences dreading shortish hair, or any tips about how to make it work better/easier. I don't mind having some undreaded hair in the back for a bit until it grows more, but I'm hoping it won't look too funny that way.
Anyway, I'd appreciate any advice you guys have on the subject.
so once in a while i'll have a dream where i have perfectly straight smoothe healthy hair and i'll start crying and thinking how did they come out so fast? like.. did i condition them by accident, or brush them or something. and they'll keep getting realer and realer and then the next one i'll have will be like wow this time it's not a dream, i really don't have dreads anymore. when it's really a dream..
anyways, does anyone ever have these dreams??
I have just joined this community because I want dreadlocks. Probably this summer:)
This inquiry might have been previously answered..but...do any of you often find it difficult to get a job with your dreads?
That is really my main concern, other than that, I have another question. Is it really better to start dreads while the hair is short?
