I was thinking about getting dreads too, can anyone say from experience or friends if it's worth it? I've heard they're a lot of work when you first get them but after they're pretty low maintenance.
#17
They definitely are at least 10 minutes a day normally, more on the day you actually wash them. It depends how lazy you are about your appearance. I'm terribly lazy, thus my dreads suffer sometimes lol. Motivation is key. If you're used to spending zero time on your hair, it will be an unwelcome change.

Make sure you buy dreadlock-approved hair products or you will get a slimy mildewy buildup inside your hair, and insects will decide it would make an ideal nest.

iain thats one day after you got them? Are they being held together by wax? Is the wax slimy?!! They look like they're already locked up, which obviously can't be.

Firstly, it's dreads, and secondly, the first picture was taken at my 18th bday party, and the second was taken in my room at residence. For those of you who haven't lived in a post-secondary dorm/res, the amount of sex is 1. almost overwhelming, and 2. fantastic

Thanks! I think it's an improvement too; the pictures were taken about 11 months apart.

Ha thanks, but i'm not some nub named newton, just a (better looking ) individual named Iain - let's not forget that? Anyway, who cares if it's tedious to get them? You pay someone else to do it for you, and just sit back and: talk to them for a few hours, watch hott fuzz, and watch most of a season of house with their friend (not by choice), or whatever you want lol. Anyway, it's not too bad at all, and it's worth it!

While i agree about the approved products (I use 'knotty boy'), i'm not so sure about the mildew and infestation aspects. I mean if you're really not a clean person, then this might happen, but if you're informed to any degree about your hair once/if you get dreads, it's not a problem. They're easy to keep clean, and my hair doesn't smell at all, unless it smells like the dread shampoo i use, but that smells like citrus and tea tree oil It's great! Also, you smell like the wax you use when you've just put it in, but a few hours later it's gone, and even that's a pleasant, subtle smell too - a lot like beeswax, but it's fine. Lots of people like it actually lol; i don't mind it at all.

lol Thanks! It took six and a half hours give or take. I enjoyed it though. It didn't really hurt too much, though everyone's scalp is different. Guy's usually have a much more sensitive scalp because we aren't really used to having long hair that gets tugged/pulled on regularly, while women have brushed their hair their whole lives etc. Everyone's different though.

That was about 2 hours after i just got them, same day. True, they weren't locked in the sense that you're thinking, but they were knotted to hell from the backcombing and twisting etc. There's lots of wax in them in that pic. They've 'settled down' a fair amount since then. I'd put up a more recent pic, but I don't really want to? lol They're not slimy or anything; they're waxy, and in my experience, everyone (girls too maybe especially them?) love it, and it's a conversation starter if you can't think of a good one, which apparently many girls in my area can't as they start the conversation with that. Ha, this weekend at the bar this girl I've never seen before was telling me how surprised her and her friends were when I got dreads. "well, that's sort of creepy, but ok - what did you say your name is?" lol

Anyway, I love how much discussion this has generated, and if anyone has other questions, ask here or PM me or something, and i'll do my best to help

Iain.

I should be getting dreads in a couple of days.

Although I keep changing my mind as to whether I want them or not.

Lol i was in the same boat when i was getting mine. Even as i was sitting there getting it done I was like "do i really want this?". I was going to recommend only getting it done if you're pretty sure, but also, if you don't like your current hair then it's not a huge loss. I was in love with my previous mane of hair, but i've still got it, just dreaded now It's a fairly big decision though; read a tonnnn about it before you do it.

Yea, I don't like my hair much as it is, and I was intending on getting dreads for the last year or so. So I'm probably still going to get them done, unless I properly change my mind beforehand.

If only I could style my hair in a way I liked!
