Episode #35 of my long running dreadlocks question & answer series where I answer YOUR questions!
Question: I have wanted to start making my locks but I want to make a few here and there and not just all at once. How would I continue to wash the hair that isn't made into dreadlocks when I needed to and what kind of shampoo should I use?
Question: Hi Chris, my dreads are bout 7 weeks old now and most seem to be doing ok. Messy! But ok :-) but some are dreading at the ends and the roots but are completely normal hair in the middle! Is there anything I can do to help them. Or should I just leave them alone? Thanks :-)
Question: Hi Chris, I started my dreadlocks yesterday and they are somehow already very tightly locked, but the sectioning is very prominent and I don't like the idea of seeing squares all over my head, is there away to immediately reduce how clearly the sectioning can be seen or do I have to wait for my hair to grow, and if so, how long will that take roughly? Thanks :)
Question-my dreads are a month old now. I started out with the crochet method, my parting and everything i did myself so i do have hairs criss crossing into other dreads. The root also seem to be coming out everytime i wash the mids and tips seem ok though. What can i do to keep roots locked without using crochet needle and how often should i pull dread apart to keep them from congoing. I do it like everyday. My dreads are only like 6in long and i want to go as nature from here on out as i can, just wanted to use crochet to get them sectioned and it seemed right for my short hair.
Do dreads tend to get thinner before they get fatter? Just wondering because I want fat dreads eventually. Dreads seem to be getting thinner.
