So much breakage :(


Help! Save My Dreads

Is there any chance that could be dandruff stuck in your dreads? Have you tried soaking them in the bathtub and just squeezing them over and over again under the water to see if you can get any of it out? I would soak them in baking soda too...

I have a job interview, and I have no idea what to do with this.


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I just wanted to post this, I found it a couple of months ago when I was job searching, and although I haven't actually tried it, It looks VERY nice. Not sure if it would work as well with shorter hair but it'd be worth looking into if you think it would help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vh2I2EEB3bM

I didn't see it necessary to hide my dreads after a couple of interviews without anyone saying a word about my hair. I work in food service now and I just have it pulled up in a ponytail (Which i know you said they are too short to do yet) But another way to "tie" them up would be to pull up half if you can with a hairband, the top half maybe? But for the record, your baby dreads look gorgeous. :D

Ahh!! Congos!


Dread Maintenance

When you try to split it be sure to take only one hair at a time, feel around the dread (where it only starts to connect together) near your scalp and pull one hair at a time upwards, out of the knot. It takes a long, long time but it can save you from having to cut all those hairs. I hope that makes sense. o_o I have split a big one before this way about seven months in and it was very mature.

Does Baking Soda actually damages hair?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have been dreading for over a year and seven months and I've used baking soda throughout the entire process. I wash about twice a week. The things I love most about baking soda is that it leaves your hair SO clean feeling. I wash afterwards with an apple cider vinegar rinse to help condition. And if I'm in an absolute hurry to get out of the shower, I will wash with Vicki's Lockin' Up Shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com. This shampoo is great and smells amazing but I just don't get that amazingly clean feeling afterwards like I do with the baking soda.

As for the effect it has had on my hair, I noticed that it does leave your hair brittle at times, which is why its so important to condition with the acv. When I separate it can be pretty easy to accidentally snap the hairs that are caught between two dreads. But my dreads themselves are strong and healthy, I have no weak spots or signs like they are being damaged otherwise.

More reasons to not use a crochet hook. Don't watch if you're squeamish.

Earth Rose, I wasn't trying to slander anyone, I just wanted to share this video I found on youtube because it shocked me. I personally have nothing against these guys, and whatever they do to their hair is their own business. But clearly they posted this video for it to be seen and shared. It's even called "crochet hook fail".

He said it hit the bone, went all the way through his finger to the other side. >_< I wonder how many other people have hurt themselves this way using the crochet hook? But seriously, if it can go through your SKIN this easily imagine what it does to the inside of your dreads.

Again, DO NOT watch if you're squeamish.

admin note:

i decided to feature this as undeniable proof of how damaging these hooks can be

if the hook can go completely through your thumb it can wreak havoc breaking hundreds of hairs passing through a dread without any resistance to indicate its causing damage

i regret featuring a video from a site that is in itself harmful and full of horrible recommendations

IS IT TRUE THAT IF YOU HAVE DREADS YOU SHOULD NOT EAT MEAT?


Dreads and Diets

Eating a ton of oils and starches is what's giving people heath problems. Humans were eating meat since they were living in caves. It has been proven looking at their skeletal remains, that they even had a more healthy, muscular structure during these times and even had better teeth. Humans started getting sick around the time they started eating oils and too many starches and grains. A lot of the "studies" behind how meat is bad for you is a huge scam. Shade of Ashes is 100% right. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pue5qVW5k8A
