Thanks for uploading! I've been wanting to do a dreadlock tag video myself for a while - I have a cold or something that's messing with my throat though so I'll have to wait a bit.
I think that's the first time I've heard your accent I always feel bad at how well Europeans speak English given that hardly any of us speak a second language.
Knowing the length of your hand and using it to measure is actually really smart, I might steal that!
I would love to see that Paul. I guess I never heard your voice before either.
I was so nervous and it took me 3 takes to film. It's so annoying when you first have to translate everything you want to say to English and then when you say it it doesn't sound like the way it sounds in your head. Some words I've read and heard a thousand times but never spoke out loud myself. My brain and my vocal abilities doesn't cooperate together.
Anyway I'm glad I made the video. It's a personal victory.
Thanks Paul, you're always so kind. ❤

You came across as quite confident, I wouldn't have suspected it took so many takes but I relate!
Aaaah, you mustn't have been around when we used to have the "video response thread" where people would... well, record video responses to each other. I used to upload a couple of videos every week, so I was very used to being in front of camera but I haven't done it in a looooong time, now. It'll probably take me a while to get comfortable again.
Oh and your dreads look gorgeous, I should add, as do you! That colour is really vibrant and lovely.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

rye: hi.. newbie on locks. I have 2 weeks locks but its not extension , just want to ask if it ok to do bath everyday and shampoo my dreads everyday

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler
