Hey all! Use this shout box to post quick messages.
4littlebirds: Hey , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps. :) Feb 23, 2017 21:07:21 GMT
luv13ug: Hey all! Feb 21, 2017 17:41:15 GMT

50locks: Is there an app for this? Its really hard to use on my phone lol Feb 9, 2017 8:29:13 GMT
sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha. Feb 9, 2017 8:24:57 GMT
V: Scrolling back I see it isn't used that much.. :p Feb 8, 2017 19:15:38 GMT

TheAntsQueen: Patience and biotin; Maybe vitamin E- the lemon salt concoction is helping them lock much faster, my hair was(is) like silk. Jan 12, 2017 8:18:02 GMT
lipstic: Just popping in to say hello! Hope everyone is well and wishing everyone a happy holiday season whatever you may be celebrating! Dec 22, 2016 3:14:34 GMT
sketchymagpie: Dreads typically go through a stage of shrinkage before they start to grow. This is because the hair is compressing together. Typically, it might take around about a year before you start to notice actual growth. Dec 21, 2016 10:01:13 GMT
