    • Hi! Have you ever thought about pipe cleaner curls? It’s literally two styles in one b/c you can wear your hair up with the pipe cleaners in and when you are ready take them out ( i usually leave mine in for 2-4 weeks) and they will be like shirley temple curls. Youtube is a great place to look around

    • Hi I’ve had dreads for 4 years. And they are definately a journey. At first I was anxious for them to be my ideal and over time I’ve grown to love them as they are. My dreads are generally 2-3cm thick and I had dreamed of perfect, thin, almost braid like dreads. But I’m happy with what I have. Make your own choice on size but remember they won’t be perfect but they will be a part of you. Happy dreading!

  9. I am curious, I just got my hair twisted and I have parts through them but they are crooked. When they are re-twisted and or locked will I have crooked noticeable dreads?? Or should I just get it done over with straight parts or no parts??? Help Please!!

    • You can palm roll them to get them straight again, wax them up first and then roll them vigorously between your hands , usually works better on thinner dreads :)

  11. Ok, so I’ve wanted dreads since the age of eight when I first saw a women with them whilst out shopping. I forgot for a while but now I am curious once more. I’m fifteen and I know my parents wont let me get them done. My hair is currently close to my hips in length, though in a few years time when I intend to have them done it will be longer. I’ve heard that if your hair if too long it doesn’t work is this true? Also a teacher at my school used to have dreads, this has really inspired me. I don’t have the money to buy accessories, can I make them myself? Also my teacher had a bell in her hair, I thought this was pretty awesome. would this be woven in to start, or added later? thankyou in advance :)

    • My hair was bottom rib length when I got my dreads done (back-combed) they worked out fine. (BUT they took 16 hours to make, many many hours of rolling and rubbing after that and around a year to mature.) I’m sorry, totally NOT trying to put you off! Just be aware that they take time to develop but long hair should still be okay.

  13. I work out a lot (run, bike or swim nearly every day). I’m planning on starting dreads soon, but wondered if there are any instructions or ideas on how to keep the dreads out of your face/neck while working out.

    • when i workout i use a head band to keep my hair off of my face . GARY

      Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

    • kinda depends on how long they are cuz if there really short then do whatever but if they are long like mine simple tie back with a wrist band or your can braid them up and they wont go anywhere even when swimming

    • I workout a lot too… I think that the salt from my sweat actually helps my locking process

  25. wow, these look cool. the pink dreads are awesome, its just that they look crazy cause of the texture of her hair. some who have straight hair, it doesn’t lock right. it makes it look uneven and poorly hygenic, and all over the place, other than that, cool [:

  26. Dreadlocks are not poor hygiene. They are clean (Clean hair dreads better because the oil from your scalp slows down dreading) Dreads are not a fashion, they are a way of life. People give up a lot to have/keep their dreads. Dreads do not smell bad, and you can have manicured dreads. They can be as wild and crazy or as tame and sleek as you want them. I hate it when people judge dreads using ignorance. *sighs*
