Making dreads smell great!


Dread Products

Hey guys :)

I was wondering about what stuff to use to make dreads smell nice... I sometimes use essential oils in my BS wash but the smell doesnt last too long... I was wondering about Palmers Cocoa butter? or something maybe that I can use in dreads that wont harm them maturing...

I sometimes use a peppermint spray but I dont really like the smell all that much.... I prefer something like cocoa butter but im afraid to try it coz im not sure if its similar to wax or something! any help would be wonderful! thanks x

My Journey/Timeline since July 2011!

2 months!! I like milestones :)

So I dont think there is a whole lot of difference except maybe a little more thickness. The roots seem to be twisting like crazy and I love it... heres my favourite twisty one!

Maybe you cant see it so clear but it looks like the bottom of a very old tree in the Amazon or something! one thing I get a little worried about at times is the gaps between some of the dreads, is this just because they are really big? anyone have huge dreads know if they will close up as they thicken or is there something I can do to close that gap perhaps?

so far Im really loving this journey, its slow but I love how they thicken, thats my favourite part, the twists are great, the lumps are wonderful but when I notice how thick they get is what really makes me happy :) Next update I'll do in about a month, I reckon there wont be enough change till then anyway!

Love to the Dreadlockssite!!

My Journey/Timeline since July 2011!

little update after a couple more weeks now Im at 1 month and 3 weeks or more... I had a lot of loose hair round the ears so I decided to TnR a tiny mini dread next to each ear as I want to see how the tiny ones develop....

and the other ear! they are so tiny!!!!

and then a shot of the back. I do worry at times they are not going to "fill out" as they have some big gaps in between each dread.... is that just coz they are quite large at the base?

I'm know they will thicken up, just time i guess.... looking forward to gaining length but I reckon they wont start getting longer for about 6 months! lol... ah well, Im having fun journaling!

My Journey/Timeline since July 2011!


Member Journals and Timelines

So now is the really fun part for me... the part it started to naturalize, I de-waxed and the dreads REALLY started to fall apart.... going from sticky mess to a fluffy mess but ultra light airy feeling and I really loved how they felt real... even tho they are not dreads yet!

I liked this stage, but I have a long way to go!

And the back view this is at 2 weeks

Ok well that was when I feel like my real hourney started... they twisted and shaped a formed into nice fat lumps and bumps and in really little time I think are forming quite nice... this is what they look like right now at 1 month and 2 weeks in... (sorry I missed a few weeks, i dont really have many clear photos)...

So some of them blutned on thier own and some i helped a little with a needle and thread but some are gonna stay out, think I like the mix so will leave them be :) Im having so much fun with them and I love that they are gonna get thicker.... so yea thats me as far as today! Im relly excited to keep going and I will post up more photos as time goes by!

Guys, please please keep posting your timelines I seriously LOVE looking at them and admiring the growth with you all! Enjoy....

Thought I'd do the other photos in a reply so you dont have to scroll through so many photos if it gets to more than one page!

Here is what they looked like with nasty ax in :( BOOOOO.

Week 1 still had wax in...

Then WEEk 2 still with wax but this was the day before I found this site and de-waxed em!!

They were still rubber banded yes I also didnt know t was bad for the hair but you will see in the next posts that I got those out!
