Most websites urge you that you must use their products if you wish to obtain dreadlocks or grow them faster - this is not true!

dreadredkroovy: I'm currently combining some teensy weensy dreadies into larger ones! Oct 10, 2016 9:52:19 GMT *
MacabreMagpie: It's also possible to combine dreads later on if you don't like the thickness. Come post photos on the forum if you want more in-depth advice :) Oct 5, 2016 6:02:13 GMT
MacabreMagpie: Katie (who I'm sure doesn't have a fish face ;p), the dreads will grow no thicker than the size of the section and usually smaller. How many dreads/sections do you have? I think most people have around 30-40, but there are those with nearer 100 too. Oct 5, 2016 6:01:52 GMT
Katiefishface16: Start tnr for my second set and im worried i sectioned too small- how much thicker will they get? my first set was neglect so its a very different process for me Oct 4, 2016 14:44:01 GMT
haircare: Natty, I replied to you on the forum haha best wishes with figuring out the site! :) Sept 11, 2016 15:46:47 GMT
haircare: um, scroll up? i mean, do you see a tab that says "forum" or maybe "home"?? click that and you will see several "threads" in which to choose and post in. ahh, not sure how much detail you need. Sept 11, 2016 14:56:53 GMT
natty_freeform: Ok, how do i get to the main forum? Sept 11, 2016 14:27:03 GMT
haircare: I'm really not in charge here, i just pretend to be :P but usually we try to keep most of the lengthy discussions on the main forum, just fyi-natty_freeform :) Sept 11, 2016 14:24:59 GMT *
haircare: natty_freeform -i'm not sure I should be the one saying this, because I guess I never had to think about it so much before...but well, I believe you can still make posts on the main forum as a guest, the same way you do it here... Sept 11, 2016 14:24:06 GMT
natty_freeform: Haircare, I don't have the money to buy a domain in order to create an account. Sept 11, 2016 14:07:16 GMT
haircare: hey natty_freeform you should sign up or login and chat on the main forum! :) but yeah well i thought that and mine STILL didn't tend to lock that way. :P Sept 10, 2016 17:25:09 GMT
natty_freeform: Because of how I sleep my back and sides will lock up faster haha. Haircare Sept 10, 2016 16:57:50 GMT
haircare: natty_freeform-do what works for you! I'd probably have to do the opposite, because the top tends to dread more than the parts I actually WANT dreaded! Go figure! :P Sept 10, 2016 15:18:48 GMT
