Hello :3


Introduce Yourself

welcome erika, hope you can learn important stuff from this site and dont pay attention what your family or friends says, that always happens... but i must be disagree with you in certain thing, the freedom must be in your heart and soul, locks at the end of the day will always be just hair, never lost your freedom either with or without dreads, cheers and peace

Hi se, thank you for the reply and your advice, it was just one time... i got loops but i dont undernstand why they dont appear in the pics, maybe i should take closer ones... thank you again and have a nice day!

soaring eagle said:

looks like u got a ways to go i assume it wasnt a 1 time thing like u crocheted for months?

still looks stiff has that weird curling forward crochet dreads tend to have

frizziness shows its in recovery stage but still look too tight to copct

no loops

yea u still got a long ways tp go crochet recovery is soooo slow

id use aloe ..no jojoba to loosen em up still

the next 4 washes put like a dropperful yea a full dropper full in a pitcher with water after washing pi]=our on (u can add essential oils if desired)

pour on let sit a min or 3 then 1/2 rinse it

like spray the water around a bit to spread it and rinse out excess but not a full rinse t0 ruinse it all out

do that next 4 washes see if they arent alot softer

Hi again. In regards to using the BS wash & ACV rinse, I used it my entire first year, that way I did not disturb the knotting process. But since you have hard water, you will have to do one of two things, probably the first considering your dollar: boil the water that you will be using to mix the BS with, hard water has minerals in it which makes the BS not mix properly, so get a pot and boil it, let it cool a little so that the minerals sink to the bottom of the pot, now slowly pour out the water you want to use. leaving the minerals in the pot. That is the no cost method. The other way which I do because I am lazy and the cost in Canada is pretty cheap for it is I buy a water cooler size jug of water and just use that. It lasts me a very very long time. Hard water does suck for sure, I have hard well water. Here is the ratio in case you need it. http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/ratios-baking-soda-wash-... .....peace

i thought so... the problem is that the dollar is very expensive here, maybe the way to go will be the acv baking soda method ... what do you think about glycerin soaps?, ohhh and by the way the wanter in here is hard, thank for your answer soaring eagle!

soaring eagle said:

theres alotta iffy ingredients in that i wouldnt even call it a soap

id recomend the baking soda acv or dreadlickshampoo the dreadlockshampoo is reasonable (shipping) if u get 4 or 5 at a time

if u have soft water boronners is the way to go

congratulations on your 5 month recovery! We are blessed to have a shampoo ingredients expert on this site, send Heather a post about your soap, let her know you are from Argentina, and that it is hard to find bars, and list the ingredients, she can let you know what to look for, also, do you know if you have hard or soft water, if so, let her know that also...peace....http://www.dreadlockssite.com/profile/Heather?xg_source=profiles_me...

I do know that coconut oil is too conditioning for dreading though

Hi folks , how are you doing?,

First of all i want to clarify that im from a city in Argentina where you never get what you are really searching so you have to conform with what you find :( , i was using a coconut soap to wash my locs but i thought that it was time to go for an non-residual soap, the problem is that i went to 4 different farmacies asking for one and they alll reacted like " doest that even exist?" , one of them offered me an glycerine one but i have my doubt of it aswell.... so i have to bought the god blessed coconut soap again:

these are the ingredients :
-sodium tallowate
-sodium cocoate
-fragance
-sodium cocoyl
-isethionate
-titanium dioxide
-petrolatum
-cetyl
-laurate
-phosphoric acid
-glycerin
-tetrasodium
-edta
-etidronic acid
-disodium distyrylbiphenyl
-disulfonate

is it any good?, i was thinking in start doing ACV method once per month along with it, to eliminate the remaining residues in my scalp.

Cheers to everyone and thank you for your attention!

PD: for the recond im in the five month of crochet recovery

Hello folks,

First of all i want to clarify that im from a city in Argentina where you never get what you are searching so you have to conform with what you find :D , to give you an example , i went to three farmacies asking for an non-residual soap and their reaction was something like : " does that even exist?" , offering me some glycerine soaps, but i have my doubts about it.... so i bought some kind of coconut based soap ( all the dread guys here use to recommend it, but i dont really trust in them, all of them are crochet guys , but as you can see i didnt have too many options ) ...

these are the ingredientes of it:
-sodium tallowate/sodium cocoate
-fragance
-sodium cocyl
-isethionate
-titanium dioxide
-petrolatum
-cetyl
-laurate
-phosphoric acid
-disodium dystyrylbiphenyl
-glycerin
-tetrasodium
-EDTA
-etidronic acid
-disulfonate

For me , it doesnt sounds that good .. but i was thinking in using it along with ACV method once per week to remove any residual left in my dreads

Thanks for your attention!

PD: just for the record im in the five month of crochet recovery
