I did the backcombing method and was told, for maintenance, to palm roll and rub clockwise. I didn't really listen so my dreads are tight near the root and the tip but the middle section is not tight and so I guess that's why they have these "hooks" as if the hair was folded. What can i do about that?? I have been undoing them from the the bottom and backcombed that section then I put the elastic at the tip again. I have been using dreadhead hq's products as well and i am running out of the shampoo but after reading this I'll use the baking soda/water mix.

If you go to a nursery or plant store, or even a home depot/lowes/walmart if there are none in your area, or even a lot of grocery stores. Aloe plants are really easy to find, a lot easier than finding pure aloe gel, a lot cheaper, safer, and if you take care of it the plant (pretty low maintenance for a plant) will just keep pumping out the aloe. Hooray for regeneration!Just pull one of the new buds off the bottom edge of the plant, straight out of the soil. Don't break it. Should pull out rather easily, actually. Then split it down straight down the middle with a knife and scrape the gel out. You can also just break it in the middle and squeeze the gel out but you always leave some behind if you do it like that. Aloe plants are so versatile. Good for burns, wounds, muscle aches, makes a good hair gel or dread conditioner, also makes a refreshing drink if the gel is prepared properly.Just make sure you actually have an aloe plant. There are a lot of cacti out there that look very similar to aloe. Most are bad for you and some are even poisonous. If you are unsure just ask someone at the store, or if you are still uncomfortable just make sure the plant you are buying is labeled.Fun stuff. :)

I want to leave my tips loose but on a few of them it seems that they are "being eaten by the dreadlock" itself. Should i pull them down??
