What do you wash with?


Dread Maintenance

Great thanks. Definitely want the shrinkage to be minimal. We use up the liquid & order the bars. What do you keep the bars in so they don't just dissolve in the shower?

Grace and Bella's Dread Progress- 1 and 2 months


Dreads in the Family

Love the pics! My youngest daughter is 10 & her dreads are about 3.5mth and I am jealous too(I started letting my hair do its thing about a month after her) my son who is 12 also has started the journey. Remind your sister to be true to her heart and give her strength when she hears comments from others. Enjoy the journey!

Oh wow I didn't think about that. My daughter has some that have shrunk so much & seem like what you are describing: hard & shrunken a lot! When would you say to start using bars? My daughter & son are about 4 mth & I'm about 3mth.

Thanks John. I noticed the TJs tea Tree dried my hair & scalp out(left it feeling itchy). I think I will alternate between Vicki's Dreadlock Shampoo & the Trader Joe's Refresh Citrus(no SLS, which is good, right?). Thanks again

What do you wash with?


Dread Maintenance

Hi all! Two of my kids & I are on this journey. When we first started I we tried the BS ACV method and it seemed to leave my son's hair dry & with an itchy scalp. So I then went in search of a shampoo that would be residue free, readily available & relatively affordable & easier for the kids to use(like a traditional liquid shampoo). I ended up using Trader Joe's Refresh Citrus Shampooo & Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo. I then noticed my daughter's head having a bit of that clothes left in the washer, musty smell. I'm not entirely sure it was from the shampoo leaving build up, more leaving wet hair tied up or sleeping on damp hair. I came to the site looking for answers & purchased Rot Knot & some of the liquid shampoo from Vickie's site. Amazing! Did the trick on my daughters hair, no more stinky dreads. I also love having my hair smell good again(TJs shampoo didn't smell bad, just no smell). So I absolutely love the dreadlock shampoos but looking to supplement with a slightly affordable shampoo. I will definitely continue to use the dreadlock shampoo, but with 3 of us using it, it can be a little pricey. Just wondering if anyone knows about the Trader Joe's,is it safe for dreads, residue free? Wondering if I can alternate using the Trader Joe's & the Dreadlock Shampoo? Thanks for any advice.

loops lumps kinks and zig zags in dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

Thanks for the great post SE. I am somewhere around 3mth into this journey. I have very wavy hair & most of what is going on are zig zags. I included a pic(bad lighting, sorry). The only frustration I am having is that my once very long almost to the middle of my back hair has zig zagged up so much it is only 4-5in in some places. I also have large balled up ends in places too. I began this journey for many reasons; patience & acceptance to name a few. With that I remind myself the zig zags, balls & just crazy dreads are natural, unique & beautiful and I am enjoying the ride.
