Freaking Out!!!!


Help! Save My Dreads

I'm not sure what it was. My hair was blonde when I began dreading it then I dyed it brown. I'm thinking it was the bits of blonde left in my hair that had kind of wrapped up to look like furries. The smell I had was from my shampoo. Don't stop the baking soda and acv, it's actually really good for your hair, even when not dreading. At the point that I wrote this I decided to just continue to take them out and do a better. So I have no dreads right now and still use the bs and acv at least once a month. I have also started making my own shampoos and stuff too. But I can't wait to redo my dreads. Going to let my hair grow some more and get finished with being pregnant. When you do decided to get some dread shampoo go to the dreadlocksshampoo (I think it is) and they have the bottle shampoo (which I learned that I prefer compared to the bar), and definitely try the dragon's blood scent. It was my favorite. You can also make your own which is fairly cheap. Go to amazon and get a small bottle of dr bronners mild baby soap for like $8, the mix like a teaspoon (I think, you can google it) into a bottle of water. Also mix some oils and stuff too.

Help! Save My Dreads

So I decided that I want to start my dreads over and do everything the right way this time and so I have shampooed and deeply conditioned my hair with super hot water and now started to brush and comb it out. Well in this process I have found a lot of tar in my dreads from the former rubber bands, and growing around that is mold I think. ALOT of white crusty, ALOT! So most of my dreads are hard and I am assuming thats why. I have successfully brushed out two very small dreads and lost at least half the girth of the hair from doing so. litterally it just fell out with little white specks in them, like I said, ALOT of them. So my head is full of mold, making the dreads super hard to brush out. I was thinking maybe the mold removing shapmpoo will help bc it may soften the dreads but I dont have a clue. What should I do?

mold


Help! Save My Dreads

Im not sure if I have it or not.My dreads are almost a year old and I have really round, hard knots on my tips. I also have had a big ordeal with itching and it seems like my roots are thinning. I haven't smelled anything weird but I use a fragrent dreads shampoo to. I am also guilty of putting my dreads in a tam after showering and sometimes sleeping on occasion. I havent seen any white in them, but they are in the back and my hair is short. So I am thinking of taking them out and trying again. I have seen the mold and rot stuff on the shampoo site but if I try it and it isnt mold will it mess up my dreads? Do you guys think I should try and fix it or just start over clean?

UPDATE: I just cut one of the hard knots open and there was a very small amount of white flakes inside. But still no smell.

Itchy Dreads


General Questions

My dreads are 9 months old and I still have really bad itching. I checked and I don't have any bugs but my dreads are constantly itchy. I have never used wax or any "product," I wash my hair every two to four days and I only use the bs acv wash or one of the soaps from dreadlockshampoo.com, It looks and feels like my dreads are completely formed, except for some straight hair at the tips. I separate them and mess with them everyday. Even if tugging a little. But mostly that's due to the itching, I also have a lot of stray loose hairs in between my dreads that I am concerned about. Could the loose hairs be due to the scratching? I could make a complete dread out of loose hairs alone, but the sectioning would be off. I just need to know, am I at a new stage or is something going wrong?
