I've been reading about dreadperms in the memories and on the Hairpolice website, but these questions haven't really been answered on here, and I don't want to trust the Hairpolice website because they're marketing...
-Do dreadperms really make "well formed dreads" from the beginning? I'm not talking about looking like natural dreads, I know it takes them a while to do that- I just mean would I be able to sleep on them, wear them up, etc without them lumping together in the back?
-Do you really need to go in for maintenance appointments? All the websites say this, but from what I know about dreads it seems like that shouldn't be true.
The reason I'm considering a dreadperm is because my hair's very long and in very good condition, and I feel like if I suddenly had a head full of waist-length baby dreads I wouldn't be able to keep them separated without shitloads of work, and avoiding shitloads of work is why I want dreads in the first place.
So last night my friend and I combed out my current dreads... and this weekend (while on a mini vacation) my hair is going to be up in those adorable little braids, and when I get back to town on Tuesday we are going to re-dread my hair :) So, last night I had a dream about all of it and it was awesome. My new dreads were exactly the size I wanted and I didn't have any of the clumping-together problem I had with my first set. This is heart-warming :)
Hey guys.. question.
I have short(ish) hair, its about 4-5 inches right now. I want to dread it and put in extensions, but it seems like that is a very expensive process from the one studio I heard back from. I was wondering if anyone in the NEW YORK area (I am located on Long Island) knows where I can get this done (or knows someone outside of a studio that can do it), or can do the dreads so I only have to do the extensions.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Ok....would it be a bad idea to dread with out.... a. dread wax and b. a dread comb
i have a normal comb, and it did fine on my promise dread....but would it be cool to do it on all my dreads?
How many dreads are on your head? I have 37 myself, and my friend has 28. His are a bit fatter than mine. I'm thinking of taking an average with the replies I get, so again, how many?
*Edit* Current average = 39 (approx.) I stopped averaging at 15.
