fast does normal hair grow?
Normal hair usually grows about a half inch a month. You can take herbs like horsetail, salmon oil, vitamin E.
long does my hair have to be to start dreads?
Well that all depends on how much work you want to put into your dread locks, if you start your dreds with 2 inches of hair, then you will be putting a lot of work into them but they won't really look like dreads. If you start your dreds with 5 or 6 inches of hair then you will have a much easier and rewarding experience with making dread locks.
I get dreadlocks and don't like them will I have to shave my head?
have to shave your head. There are a couple ways to get dredlocks out,
if you haven't used a dread perm
2. Cut the first half of your dread off, from the tip of the dread to the middle. Then soak the rest of the dread in conditioner and comb the dread out. This will take some time, but you will have cut the strongest part of the dread off, so it will be a lot easier to comb the rest out.
3. You just
love your long hair and don't want short hair: I can completely understand
this, this is probably the way I would choose if I were ever thinking
about cutting my dreads off, but I'm not so I don't have to think about
it :) Soak the whole dread in conditioner, and comb the dread out. Let
me warn you that this will take a lot of time, probably 4 or 5 times longer
than it took you to put them in, but if you love your hair, it's completely
worth it. Some people will say that you can't do this, but you can, I
know a person who did this, and I helped them take some of them out. I
didn't stay the whole time, but I know when I came back the next day,
they were still working on taking them out.
much shorter will my hair be when I dread it?
depends on which method you use.
You will loose 10%-20% of your length.
How do I dread my roots as they grow?
Use the clockwise rubbing method. Rub the dread against your scalp in a clockwise motion.
I used relaxer on my hair, can I dread it now?
Yes, actually your hair will dread easier because the hair has been damaged, so it will hold knots a lot easier. You can use any method and the dreads will lock up.
