Another question. Mildew grows inside of the dreds if they aren't entirely dried. That's not a good thing, it smells.

Does using a blowdryer work? I knowyou're supposed to "wring out" the dreds, but wouldn't a blowdryer be faster? Obviously, I'm just a novice when it comes to dreds, haha. Doing research helps, but any help from real people is so much better.
Thanks.

Peace and love

Here's a link to a blow dryer discussion we had recently:

And I really recommend browsing around the Knotty Know How forum a bit - there's a wealth of information available there, and some really cool people. :D Welcome to hipforums and dreadie life!

My dreads are turning 2 in january. I can't believe how much we both have grown. I love my hair! I think i am going to have a birthday party for them. maybe people will bring them presents- like beads and tams...

soaringeagle and dancerannie- i can't believe (well i do believe- just a turn of phrase) that your dreads are natural. they look so beautiful! most of the nonbackcombed dreads i have seen are more messy and less roundish than yours.

My hair is natural, but it's still a mess ;) A good mess, though.

ok,i have a question,i have like a fro(well kinda had a fro type deal),and i always wanted dreads,and i finally went with it,and its been about 2-3 monthes,and i havent done anything,and i have about 6 dreadthings,more like matts in my mind,and they feel really awkward,one is formed by about 2 or 3 little ones,and one curls,and i dont really feel like waiting years for them to actually be dreads

does anyone know like how i can get them in,i know ways,i just want to be sure,like could i go to a hair place(specific ones?) and have them do it? anyone,thanks

Soak them in extremely hot water and squeeze each as hard as you can...or start over from scratch....
