Update on my dreddies

Hey guys! I realised I haven't updated on here for a while so I thought I would show you what my dreads are getting up too:

Me, my dreads, and my Mikey Moo.

They are 10 months old now. 10 months! It's gone by so fast!

Well, I wanted to go natural. And I have no clue why. I don't like the look, I have NO patience what soever in my body and I change my mind way to fast! I have no idea why I wanted to do this, so I changed my mind. Into taking something that can't be easily removed.

Yes, I adore thin dreads :D

today my dreadlocks were born! or about half of them, anyway. the rest will be done tomorrow. my hair is quite long so it takes ages to backcomb well. my friend(s) did most of them, and the few i did myself weren't really as good.

last night we sectioned and braided:

i have a question or two...
first, about pain. i'm pretty sensitive and my scalp hurts, i'm assuming this is just from all the hair-pulling, but is this normal (for those who backcomb)?

some of the dreads are really tight, like thick fuzzy pipecleaners. they're also very stiff... do they stay that way or become more moveable?

also, some were sort of backcombed in a way that they stick out by the roots rather than laying sort of flat... i don't know how to explain that better, but in the last picture you can see this a bit. the roots are really tight and when i try to make these lay flat it doesn't really work (and it hurts). is there a way to make these dreads not stick out? 'cause it looks pretty weird and is uncomfortable.

one last thing-- salt water. what exactly does it do to dreads? how often should you spray them with it?

thank you so much. :)


My lovely wife took some time to help me sort my locks a bit, they were starting to get in the way, I was
feeling a lot of scalp tension and the back of my head was pulling so tight it was showing my scalp. She cut 8-12 inches off each of the 33 locks.
