Yes, they do! Hang on. One of the local AP moms did twist and rip and she did a blog post of her 3 year dreadiversary...

At the bottom of that blog post, there are links to her 1&2 year progress. :)

Becky, that woman's dreads are fabulous. Thanks for sharing! Some day, some day..... smile.gif

 

Here's a better shot of my 9 month dreads that was taken today. I don't color them but they were apparently kissed by the summer sun -

Koru... Dreads looks amazing! So does the cabinet with all those glass jars in the background,lol. Seriously, is that your spice cabinet or something?

Becky, thank you for the kind words.  Your dreads are really coming along!

 

Koru, the sun seems to bleach dreads differently than it would bleach normal hair.  I hated bumps!!!  Like you, at first I tried to like them, then got frusterated.  I found what caused my bumps was the pulling apart of combining dreads at my scalp.  So I started cutting them apart if they started to try to grow together, rather than ripping them.  When ripping, because they rest of the dread isn't completely tight, some of it gets pulled more and moves on the inside of the dread and bumps out.  At least that's what seemed to be happening with mine.  I tried to keep the dreads seperate and if I noticed two becoming one, I snipped them rather than ripped them.  After a couple months, less bumps.  Now I rip them apart, but they're solid, so no bumps have been spotted in years!

I hope there's nothing wrong with backcombed dreads because that's how I did mine! love.gif And too funny that I didn't even notice the jars in my photo. I knelt down for my daughter to take the pic & turned away from the glaring sun from the window. Voila. That's my "bulk & herb" cabinet. Lots of herbs for teas & tinctures plus beans & grains, etc. I adore that cabinet so thanks for commenting on it!

 

ScruffyToo, you speak reassuring words. thumb.gif I look forward to the day of no loops. And I'll have to think about what you said regarding separating them. Crazily, I have two teeny ones than congo'd but otherwise, they don't ever severely join together. Not anything I'd need a scissor for! I don't think I ever reported back on my trip to the salon a few weeks ago to get my dreads maintained but I'm quite sure this guy caused 10 times more loops than normal. After he tightened the roots by twisting a comb there, he took his hands & twisted each one until it was very tight & then backcombed with his fingers (if that makes any sense). When each dread untwisted, welcome loop-de-loops! 

 

And I'm not very good at palm rolling. I probably tend to my hair once a month, if that!? I've committed to palm rolling more often again & encouraging the dreads to work their way up.

I hate palm rolling. I'm a weakling, so the constant flexed movement of rubbing my hands together (especially the ones in the back) left me feeling so sore. I gave up palm rolling, needless to say. My dreads seem to be starting to lock up without me doing much more maintenance than separating them. There were some hairs in the back that pulled loose over the course of the month, and they're creating their own dreads by neglect. They're so cute! My neglect babies. lol

Yeah, I tried palm rolling once. That was all it took for me to ditch the idea of pretty, even, well maintained dreads. I did it in the shower, and I swear I felt like my hands were gonna fall off. And my dreads looked no different afterwards...

I can tell an obvious difference when I palm roll. Certain dreads start to flatten & regular rolling makes them tubular again. And baby loops can be dispersed before they loc up & permanently stick out. (How's that for a technical description of dread maintenance. Lol!) I go through shifting moods between love for the wild nature of my hair & frustration that it'll be a while before they're solidly loc'd. I know it's not a beauty contest but I would love for them to be firm & thick like Scruffy's and the woman in the blog. I LOVE that look! I keep reminding myself that it's a journey, though, & not one for the faint of heart. And I can see why people keep their dreads for a long time after making it through these early stages.

And speaking of dreads, I think I'm about ready to chop mine off. They're almost 9 months old & I've loved this journey but I've decided they're not intended to be a permanent fixture in my life. So many reasons, none worth elaborating on. But I have a question.....what happens once I chop them? Many are knotted up within centimeters of my scalp but others are loose 4-5" down. I can't envision any presentable hairstyle!? I know there are a few you mamas who've had more than one dreaded adventure so share what happened when you ended the journey. What did you do?? And do you have photos of what your hair looked like immediately after cutting them?

i just ended my second dready journey, after almost three years.  i cut mine to my shoulder and picked each dread out, it took along time, but my hair is awesome and to just above my boobs now :)

I say doing dreadlocks is a lifestyle. I'm thinking that I can probably get my 5 year old son to palm roll the back, since it's such hard work. I also get frustrated and a little discouraged. "This isn't happening fast enough. I'm taking them out tomorrow." The next morning, I found a cute baby dreadlock, so I decided to keep them. lol

 

Also, I don't know if I linked it before or not, my dread journey so far on my blog

Ok, Becky, I just checked out your blog and noticed you lived close. We are in Spokane and like it, but are always in search for a better place. I'm in favor of Northern CA, but my hubby's job could take him to Bozeman or Missoula. Which is a kinder place to live? Have you ever checked out the Okanogan Family Faire in WA? It's this weekend, but such a Mecca for like minded people and dready mamas smile.gif if you're ever in the Spokane/Cd'A area, let me know!

I came across this about "dreadlocks & hair loss" and am wondering if it has any worth. Is there truly a risk of permanent hair loss??

I wouldn't put any stock in this.  There's cultures that have been dreaded for centuries - they seem to have healthy heads of hair.

Hair loss is often attributed to a tight scalp. If you massage your scalp thoroughly when you wash(or just shower), it'll keep your scalp nice and loose!

I finally chopped some length off.

 

There's a picture BEFORE (not the best, but you can kinda see where my waist is and where the hair goes):

How much I look off:

 

 

A whole handful:

 

 

And... I haven't taken a picture of what's left yet.  Oops!

This thread has gone hella far and so have many of your locks. I love the way all of your dreads are turning out! I'm so stoked becky and rjuriz that you took the leap and joined us on our dreadie journies. I have been too lazy to crochet or even palm roll the past month so my dreads are looking nappier than they did over the summer but right now I don't really care. Koru, I am glad you are sticking to keeping locked at least a year. Scruffy I love your phat locks and hope mine get chunkier before I chop them off agin.

I have removed dreads in several different fashions. I have cut off just the tips and spent hours using dog dematter spray and 'slicker' brushes to unlock almost all of my hair, this resulted in long hair full of split ends that I ended up cutting short anyways. I have cut off the locks in their entirerty leaving about an inch of roots. I have cut them halfway off and combed from there. I think the most presentable choice was stopping locking the roots for about a month so there was about two or three inches of non knotted hair accomplished by using conditioner on my roots, then I cut a few inches down from that and begain a couple week long process of conditioning and gently removing the knots. This left much less split ends than the other times but it was very time consuming and tedious..


be good family...

Mamayogibear, I can't believe you've had dreads so many times!! I anticipate this being my only dreaded journey, however long it lasts. Today I feel like it will be until death....but ask me tomorrow. Lol! Change is something I thrive on but maybe I'll focus my energy on furniture rearranging to get my fix. :)

 

Scruffy, your locs are LONG. Wow! I bet it feels good to cut them a few inches but then again, maybe it doesn't even feel different. 

 

I'm proud to say that I think I've hit a peek and am feeling the love. Maybe it's due to the time I invested with crocheting & palm rolling last weekend but I've gotten so many compliments lately. My locs are feeling much neater & tighter & all around more tolerable. The tolerance level is definitely related to the colder weather and shirts that cover my neck because I'm reminded of their scratchiness when I put on my PJs. I'm continually surprised at my kids ability to lay all over them. Ha! My one daughter has always loved to play with my hair while sucking her thumb & she hasn't let up. And she's very olfactory, passionately connecting with scents, so she smells them while she's fiddling & sucking her thumb. It's really quite sweet even though it sounds odd writing it. 

 

Any favorite places to buy tams? I have a few hats that still fit by big hair but would like to get a couple cute tams. Etsy, maybe?

I crochet hats / tams for my dreads.  I'm a knitter, and it's the only thing I can crochet.  I make them from the middle/centre and work out, so that they are big enough for my big head.

Hi, mamas! I have just read through all of this (and the 2010) thread. How is it possible that I had that much time? I'll tell you- I barely slept last week obsessing over dreads. :giggle:

 

Here are my dread-babies. About a month old! :)

 

 

Sorry they are sideways...don't know how to fix that.

 

So? I think I love them. Of course some days they don't look this good- just trying to be patient.

 

I did twist and rip (ish) and then some interlocking (because I didn't know what it was and it kinda just happened when my hands were playing in there) and now I am just leaving well enough alone!

 

and here are DD's, obviously just neglect (but they are sectioning out nice and even).

 

She decided she wanted to let hers dread, too. So, who am I to stop her? She just turned 5. She now has a couple beads, and one pink thread wrap. <3

 

Nice to "meet" you all!

I'm sorry to say that I'm almost done removing my dreads. I hated how they were turning out. I'm going to give my hair some time to "recuperate" and do the neglect method.

Bummer! I had the bottom half of my hair done 4yrs ago, then took it out. I'm much happier with them the second time around using no wax & having a friend help me section my hair better.

Yeah. I lost so. much. hair! I'm still having post partum hair loss, so that, plus that stuff coming loose from taking out my dreads..... I probably could've donated enough hair for 1/3 of a wig! Anyway, I am excited for the neglect method, so that it'll all just happen naturally. My scalp wasn't healthy enough for me to do dreads. That's one of my regrets. Not waiting until I had a healthy scalp. (not using residue free shampoos, waiting for less hairloss, etc) At least this is info I can pass on to others. :)

Thank you, Koru! I've been thinking about doing neglect with my daughter. Her hair gets so tangled so easily and I never remember to brush it. But I know my husband wouldn't be happy with me AT ALL. She has his red hair and he wouldn't want that for her.

Don't be sorry! It was a growing experience where you realized that you do want dreadlocks so much you are willing to face the months of crazy non dreaded neglected hair to journey to dreadlocks. That is one good thing about twist and rip, if you take them out within the first couple of months it's pretty easy compared to backcombed and crochet locks. Congrats on choosing to be a dreaddy mama and choosing your own journey!


be good family...
