Hey guys! I've had my dreads for a while (not really sure how long.) So it'/s been kind of a struggle sometimes, just because my hair is really messy. They don't look perfect, have the lump/bump look, and the frizzy tips. I get the comments constantly like "why don't they look like [...], They look messy etc. Should they look perfect? Should i cut them? How do i improve the look? Any advice is appreciated
GRR I hate when people say things like that to me! As if I asked for their approval of my hair! My hair is still in the messy stage (2.5 years now) and may always be like this since I'm quite lazy about it and it seems like like being in this state. I do have fully formed dreads and lots of loose hair that will at times get tangled it's all part of my hair's personality.
Just ignore the comments and KEEP GOING. I am at 2 years natural dreads. When I first started, there were times I had to wear a heascarf to work and a few of my friends said it was approaching the type of mess that was a bit embarrassing to be seen with me in public haha. But it passed and mine are looking great. The moment where I really just totally stopped caring what was going on was when I was most happy with my hair.
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

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , 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.

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.
