My head is a mess


General Questions

Im just a bit behind you Im at like 7 weeks and like you I have super fine hair and its very straight as well but mine doesn't knot very easily. I started with short hair like 4 inches and same thing happened with me, first month stayed in sections, had a few dreads starting then at around 6 weeksI started getting more formingand also a bunch of 3 that keep joining at the roots its hard to separate them sometimes but not as much trouble as it sounds like you're having. My hair isn't looking too messy yet either apart from the oldest dreads that are sticking out and stuff.

Anyway Id just suggest to just continue separating as you are and relax a bit about the sections coming out and redoing themselves and stuff I have that a lot but in the end it'll all dread up and look awesome =]

God luck on your journey =]

Should i stop???


General Questions

The 6 inch thing is just to give a general idea, its not like 'your hair will not dread until 6 inches', its just that for many Caucasian people, they may not notice major progress until 6 inches. But then saying that, I started of with about 4 inches maybe bit shorter and my hair type is so fine and straight that ages ago when I had long hair I never had to brush it cz it just didn't knot. Then when I started dreading at 4 inches I really wasn't expecting much to happen but even with my hair at 4 inches its started knotting up just by changing the way I wash my hair and stuff.

So chances are youll still see progress while its short and as your hair grows youll notice more changes, but doesn't HAVE to be 6 inches for stuff to happen.

Baking soda acv wash makes hair itchy and oily?


General Questions

Its worth finding out whether you have hard or soft water in your area as if you have hard water the bs wont wash out and itll leave your head itchy.

If you do have soft water then your ratios sound alright, just make sure youre leaving the bs solution on for like 10-20 mins then rinse out well, apply the acv solution then rinse out immediately. Some people do leave it on for a little but this is what conditions your hair and restores scalp pH so if youre getting oily hair it may be that youre leaving it on too long especially with baby dreads you don't want to over condition them as knots could slip out. After the acv wash if you use really cold water to go over your scalp it will help with dandruff and itchiness. And in general when washing your hair don't use really hot water anyway.

Newly dreading, fine hair, lots of questions!! (Sorry - I'm going to be such a bother, I am sure of it!)


General Questions

I think when you click reply to someones comment there comment comes up in the blue box underneath when you reply to discussion itcomes up as a new comment? something like that anyway

and don't worry about helping them along and fixing them and tnr and all that whatever yourhair type it doesn't need 'help' as long as its not mega short it will knot up only takes time and care. If you want to tnr then that'sa personal choice but if youregoing to do it then only to it once.All tnr does is like.. make the blueprintsfor dreadsit just basically creates the sections butyour hair will naturally section itself anyway and sometimespeople do tnr, the sections are unnatural and tight and it just does more harm than good. But yeh like I said if youre gonna do tnr only do it once then leave your hair to do its own thing if you keep tnr then they wont be dreads they need to loosen and knot and tighten and shrink and everything to become dreads, if you keep doing tnr they cant do this.

So I've tried three times to do this reply and can't seem to make it work. What is the difference between Reply and Reply to Discussion? anyway, yeah I just didn't want to offend anyone who was so helpful to me, by seeming to 'disappear!' It just seemed kinda rude - I don't know. (I can be weird sometimes!) Sorry for the lengthy reply earlier. I appreciate your kind offer to message you though!

Anyway, my dreads are coming along. They need a little 'work' tho. I'm just very gently twist & ripping a little bit. Loose at top and ends, and just a few at a time, to help it along. Nothing like some of the videos on YouTube where they T&R a dread all at one time. I'll try to get some photos posted this week, after I wash it tomorrow and fix it a little! I don't know what my page even looks like, or if I have one! I'll have to figure it out eh? Thanks again for helping!

essential oil spray questions


Dread Maintenance

I too have rosemary, peppermint and tea tree and also lavender but my bottles are half the size (about 500ml)... it was a little while ago when I made up the sprays but if I remember right I put in like 6 or 8 drops of each but into separate bottles.... so does that mean Ive put in too much? 6-8 drops to 500ml?


Ojas Acharya said:

yea generally the bottles are provided with an inbuilt dropper or an external dropper.... and dude dont use too much oils to start with. preferably i'll recommend to start with smaller amounts then see how ur scalp reacts and thenchangethe amounts accordingly.. and as far as my knowledge goes 30 drops of peppermint oil is way tooo much. i just use 4 drops of pepermint oil. thats maximum 4 me. u can use more drops of rosemary but dont exceed teatree to over 8-10 drops.. good luck brother.

Oils


Dread Maintenance

I use peppermint because its meant to stop itchiness and I love the smell,

lavender because it is meant to help with dandruff

tea tree because it is supposed to prevent you getting lice and things

and rosemary because it is antifungal/antibacterial

here is a good page for essential oils and their uses http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/essential-oils-for-dreads-and-scalp-health

Newly dreading, fine hair, lots of questions!! (Sorry - I'm going to be such a bother, I am sure of it!)


General Questions

Im sorry to here about your bad news I know youbarely know me atall bar a few questions and answers but if you ever wanna just talk to someone who isn't involved or.. yeh.. welcome to message me or whatever.

And yeh my hamster literally is my baby you couldn't wish for a better/tamer/cuter/fatter/perfect/fluffy.... hamster lol don't get me started on him or it really would be an essay xD

Ill just accept your request now and still hoping to see a pic of you especially now you've had sometime to start yourjourney =] unless you've already posted them ill have a look when I go to your page=]

Renee Stewart said:

Hannah,

Yes, of course that would be great. I have not been online here since then, so apologize for taking so long to reply. I still haven't had a chance to upload photos, do anything - I've had an awful tragedy in my life. It was odd to see the date of my question and all the kind answers, (I had been reading a lot of the site but I guess I didn't officially join or post until that day/middle of the night before) because it was later on July 2 that I got the worst of news, and haven't been back since then. I thought I might make some kind of post on a general forum (or this discussion?) to apologize and explain my sudden absence after receiving so much support here. Didn't want anyone to think I just took advantage and split! I'm not sure what's appropriate. I felt the warmth and kind support here, yet hadn't had long enough to form closer friendships, so not sure what to do. But, I still have the baby dreads! Now it has been by total neglect for real, simply due to mental state! ha.

Anyway, thanks again for the advice & replies. BTW, I love your hamster picture. My daughter used to keep hamsters - they can be so sweet. Who knew? I also didn't realize you were from the UK. Normally I would be accosting you with questions about what it's like I've always been interested in real lives of people in other countries. Sorry for the length of this! Jeez I can sure go on . . . And I just realized this isn't a message anyway, since we never became 'friends'! so, I sent you a request, and I'll just post it as a reply - hope you'll see it! Renee

Hannah Moore said:

Haha thanks lol and no problem =] I think the only picture I have up of me is the one I took after I took out my tnr so dont have any dreads in that pic but Im not nearly at one month after taking them out and I have like 2 big knots and few small knots forming which is good considering my hairs still short and so thin =]

Would you mind me adding you would be nice to follow your journey?

How thick will my dreadlocks get?


General Questions

Apparently the dread will thicken until its the size of the section where the hair meets the scalp. So have a look at this and see how big theyll get you dont want any sections over 2.5cms though. You can either leave them another 6 months to thicken and mature and then see what you think about the thickness, or you can let some of them congo by just not seperating them but be careful that the section at the scalp doesnt go over 2.5cms.

Got my dreads done


General Questions

Im dont know much about crochet dreads and wax and stuff but Ive read things on here about like.. this shampoo that is meant to strip out wax and residues and things? I cant remember the name but someone else might know what Im talking about so if the salon used wax its probably worth using something to get rid of it all... Also you can just really condition your hair when you shower so if youre using bs/acv use more acv and leave it on a bit longer or you could use aloe vera gel... by conditioning your hair itll make the knots slip out easier... just few ideas... glad you found this site though =]
