LOL dont worry about it, i should have explained it better. :hug::o sorry for the mis understanding but I had never heard the term "burn" so you can only imagine what was going through my head.
Great thanks, Sarah, i'll let you know how i get on :hug:Hi
I have been looking into this a lot lately as I want dreads too...
If you do a search for Knotty boy it come up with a link to the salon website with instructions of what to do. They also sell their own products and kits.
Hope this helps mate!
How does it look?i have a friend with dreads and he used egg !!!....
This information contridicts a lot of info that i have read so farHi, heres some info I copied from another forum, but I can vouch for the correctness of the information as I had dreads for about five years during the 90's, as did a lot of my lighter skinned, straighter haired mates.
make sure they dont use it- it will turn them nasty, it collects dirt and your hair cant knot it self up naturally as it cant move being incased in it all. and it is nearly imposible to get out
most of the dreadlock products to look after and care for them on the market/net are ******, they can make ur dreads sticky, full of residues. and basicly do nuffink they say.
if they tell you u cant use normal shampoos they lie, you can as long as your dreads are settled and youve had them a few months, and you wash all the residues left fromt eh shampoo out, and dry well. if they are left they can become mouldy and break off.
dread locks are really easy to take care of and keep clean as long as you do it properly.
never thread a dread back through on its self at the root, this will start to plait it and then it cant knot up.
best way to do the roots is to grab the dread fromt eh root inbetween index and middle fingers, and rub in a circular motion and u can feel it knotting up. and also palm rol the dread.
palm rolling is essential at first as it helps train teh hair to lock up, into that nice sausage shape. you dont really need to root rub for a few weeks after getting them done, as the roots will be weak from all the pulling."
Why don't you just do dreadlock hair extensions thats what I have
Oh my goodness lol I thought the same as you too Singed hair ,LMAO..I guess if that is the way you want your dreads to look..singed hair..?
I have never done them but did watch one of the stylist do them on a black guy..she used a funky pomade..dirty making stuff.
Never have heard of burning the hair.
