Q: Whose COURT is This?

Weird Problem

My dreads are like two weeks old and it seems the more I mess with them the more they just fall apart. I try palmrolling and after I do it my dread is almost completly apart, I don't know what to do about this, it took nearly 12 hours to get my hair done with all the backcoming and stuff and dreadwax.

I haven't washed them since it was done because i'm afraid that the water will litterly just have them fall all the way apart and I don't want to lose them but the person that did them I'm not talking to anymore so I have no help at all.


ive been doing my boyfriends dreads for a while now but everyones been telling me different techniques for them. some say use wax and some say dont. this one guy even said to use aloe. which i thought was pretty weird!

anywayssss what exactly is the best thing to use on them? also, his tips refuse to stay rolled no matter how much i palm roll and rubber band.

what should i do?


I just finished back combing a few days ago. I don't have pictures yet and I'm new to the group so I figured I would drop an entry and say hello. I'll have pictures for anyone who is curious soon enough.

my expert opinion on 10,000 BC.

ok. so we just saw The Dreads Movie, & it was okay. it wasn't great. it required a LOT of suspended disbelief, but ...of course the dreads required the most suspended belief for me.

number of non-dreaded people: pretty much nil
number of dreads i believed: nil

all of the heads of locks looked off in some way. many of them were twists. all looked around 2-3 months old at best, but were miraculously unfrizzy. you could see light through the dreads, which is ridiculous unless they ALL got together as a tribe & decided four months ago to start some knots. some characters had reverse coloring - meaning the actor's beard was gray, but the dreads were dark at the top & gray at the TIPS. the main character had a VERY nappy looking scalp, but all of the hair in his dreads was perfectly straight. one character towards the end went from short twisty mats very suddenly to short shiny waxy twisty mats. gross.

but it's still nice to see that many dreads in a movie, so it's interesting at least, & entertaining at best. my bottom line: see a matinee.
