Is the grippy feeling with BCS bar normal?


Dread Maintenance

Update: used b.s. Plus bronners and an acv rinse today and was left with soft hair and no grippy feeling. Our replacement filter is in transit right now since it probably needed replacing. We do have hard water to some degree. I guess I should alternate between bucks bar and b.s. Since it seems to have worked this time. What's rot knot?

Crazy mat on back of head


Dread Maintenance

Hubby had a beaver tail visible in our first or second progress photo. Ended up cutting it apart over a few days in sections that wouldn't be obvious. Cutting sooner rather than later was a good choice since there is no Congo pain for him now and they look normal though they were cut apart. Hopefully you have someone to help you in case it needs to be done.

It's not softened, and the grabby feeling is after it is rinsed. It's almost like that clean feeling you get on your skin when you use a soap that takes the oils off your skin. We've also been having a bit of stank. Maybe it's time to use some B.S.

ADVICE for 3 week old dreads..


Help! Save My Dreads

Ours went really fast so we had to pull apart everyday. his got a beavertail in like a week, so we had to end up cutting it because we didnt start ripping early enough. Definitely separate early.

Is the grippy feeling with BCS bar normal?


Dread Maintenance

We've been using the nagchampa bucks county soap bar for at least a month now.

While in the shower, and only in the shower, the locks feel as if they've got residue on them. Is this grippy feeling normal? Does our water have something to with it? We dont know what type of water we have but we have a water doctor filter on it.

Since I get dry scalp easily using the baking soda wash and acv rinse, I started using the bar. Haven't tried to baking soda wash in a while to feel the texture difference.

for months before we started, we were using giovanni tea tree shampoo. Since it's clarifying, it wasn't hard for our hair to knot up. I doubt any is still left in there, but there is a chance.

any ideas?

I don't like the flat lumpy ones lol


Introduce Yourself

It is inevitable. In only 5 months, most of our lumps disappeared. From the top of ears up, I've got flat and loopy. The ears down is already round and blunted essentially. The Mr. has very uniform dreads. I guess it depends on how your hair texture is, and how you roll around in your sleep :P

We see little girls running around with TIGHT braids just like photo number 4 and cant help but think " that poor girl has a "5 head now", literally a receded hairline at age 4-9 because they or likely their parents wont go loose and natural. It's nice to be involved in a community where the damage is clear and for the most part avoided. I can't blame the cosmetologists for selling their services, because that's what they do, but it seems none of the pictured examples of their work involve common sense. There's a salon nearby here that offers treatments like "the hippie" which is just a trim for those who embrace the natural hairstyle but still brush and the only dread care they do is washing in their sink with all natural shampoo. If only all salons were honest and see through like that. I'll see if I can find any bad examples.

Long Emotional rant, not 100% dread related.


General Talk

Wow, it takes guts to say these things. "Like you have to break someone down to the point of begging for mercy in order for them to be humble." This part is especially screaming out to me. Considering I'm a very simple person and I used to get walked over all the time. I didnt realize how awful people can be until around 18. It was then that I found out what a real friend is and I stopped contacting my "fairweather" friends. I felt a little guilty at first, but if you can't love thy neighbor as much as they want you to, it's OKAY. It's okay to sever ties with family because you don't like what they've become. I did that because of the ignorance and hypocrisy of a few of my family members, and guess what? Life goes on. I feel better for that actually, and I hope you feel better, too. Many people who see me probably think I'm one of those people walking around with my nose in the air, but honestly, if I see people doing detrimental things I turn away or try not to look because if I dwell on how they are smoking cigarettes right next to their child, or have a grocery cart full of monsanto-con-agra frankenfood, I shudder and feel empathetic towards them and the planet. You are probably a truly humble person and don't let "modern" society get you down like it does to me on the daily. sounds like you need a little getaway in the woods to clear your head. Peace, peace, hair-grease.
