So guys, I'm new here obviously. I'm about to embark on the infamous dreadlocks journey. This will be my second set, the first set I cut off for no particular reason. I just wanted a change but I vowed I'd grow them back as it's really the ONLY style of hair that I love. That said, my first set was completely natural ala "free form". I greatly enjoyed them but found that I had the one I named the pillow as it was fat and flat from me sleeping on it, haha. It's the only one I felt self conscious about. I had them for about 3 years down to chest length...
Fast forward to the present and this time I'm considering the T&R method just because I'd like to form my own sections and have a tiny bit of control over that aspect. But also because I'm really considering the idea of the next level dread i.e...the DREADHAWK. I'm keen on this idea because I love having the shaved sides for the air flow to my scalp and that sleek look you get. Not that I'm being shallow but I just like the better on me not neccessarily everyone. I'm having a super hard time deciding though as shaving the sides will mean more maintenance, I'm also considering a complete undercut but I'm just undecided. I think the dreadhawk would suit my style and myself the most. But anyways, just introducing myself...
Other than loving dreads my hobbies include music, I play guitar and fiddle, I'm a writer, I'm fairly tattooed and I collect tarantulas, I'm outdoorsy and love to hike and travel, I'm a beer lover and a fan of Colorado cannabis. In fact I'm thinking about moving! Anyways, just saying hi and trying to get others opinions and experience on dreadhawks! Thanks! PS. It'll be a while as I don't have the length, 2imches up too but short on the sides and back.
Yeah, just nervous about shaving the sides and making them even along with wondering how much I should take off the back before I or if I should leave the back completely alone. Just a lot of pondering!

CHESH-guest computer: anna conditioner helps but it is a lot of work no matter how you go about undoing them. Coconut oil helped when I had to redo mine

anna: We need help! My daughter has dreadlock or mostly matted hair type dreadlocks from not brushing her brush. Can anyone help us figure out how to take them out? We have been using baby powder to rub the hair around to loosen it up.

SketchyMagpie: I'd suggest reading our FAQ as dreads coming loose is very normal in the early stages.

SketchyMagpie: Hey Danny. Depending on your hair type, you might need a few more inches. I started from short hair with 2 sets of dreads and they didn't stay in until my hair was 5 inches long

@DreadlocksCo: You can get relatively instant dreads by crocheting them.

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.
