Hey, I'm new, hi, hello!


Introduce Yourself

Thanks for the advice! Here's a couple other questions for you: I have read a lot of good things about Dr. Bronner's bar soap. Would that be a good substitute for a bar of dread soap? Also what is your opinion on a diluted tea tree oil spray to help me with fly aways? Basically, I don't want to order anything online, if I can get away with it.

I want to get the top portion of my hair going as it's pretty limp and still like normal hair. I think it might be because of my using conditioner so I'm stopping that part and that's also why I started to twist n rip that part. The rest I'm going to let go naturally, but I think I need to give the crown area a starting point.

Introduce Yourself

Brand new to the forum and to the dreadlock experience. Oh, hi, I'm Lisa, How are you? Here is my dreadlock experience thus far: I have been thinking about dreadlocks for some years now, but obstacles such as work would not allow me to do it. I "accidentally on purpose" started my dreads about two months ago simply by not brushing it at all (I'm lazy). I wasn't totally set on the idea of dreads so I continued to maintain my hair somewhat like I normally do by shampooing and conditioning, but still haven't brushed it (I'm REALLY lazy). About a week or so ago, I noticed the hair on the bottom of my scalp dreading on it's own (because I'm lazy) so now I'm thinking it's time to go the distance (I love being lazy). I just started the twist and rip method today and have been looking into what products to use to help them along. That being said, I'll be asking you guys a LOT of questions along the way. Because I'm lazy. I'll eventually post a picture of my progress, but I'm lazy, soo........

How are you?

Life after Locks


General Talk

I've heard that it is possible to comb out dreads, even after they've been in for years and have used wax. Use a dread comb, lots of shampooing and conditioning hair to loosen up the locks, a few friends to help out and a LOT of spare time. That is, if you don't want to cut all of your hair off. As far as dreads changing how your hair grows, I've never heard of that.
