giving up on the health of my dreads.


Help! Save My Dreads

If the people who got "salon locs" can live with their unhealthy hair then so can I. 

I read your FAQs and guide a lot before dreading.  Thing I did differently: put my hair in a pony tail with a scrungie. (You said it wouldn't be a big deal, just more seperating)

And palm rolling. I know you hate palm rolling but it helps dry the hair so much faster. I did it slowly and not every time I showered but if it was a late night shower I would try to make them dry faster.

I had somewhat long hair before I stopped combing and conditioning so its probably I had them before. I should have paid more attention.

 

Sorry still knew to the forum but here is how they are now

Full of split ends. Don't understand why. I pretty much was hands off with my dreads, and shampooed 4x a week with vegan dreadlocks shampoo. I noticed only recently that my locks are full of split ends. This saddens me, but I think I'm just gonna ride it out until my hair falls off. Its been since April since I stopped combing and conditioning.

dreadlocks dealing with constant interaction timeline.


Introduce Yourself

Hello my name is Galindo. Trying to form dreadlocks is probably one of the best decisions I've ever made, I've always had long hair, but its always been kept under a Beanie or a ponytail. It was great to let go, for the first time in my life I went out with a fro and it didn't even matter.

But anyways, I ride a motorcycle everyday to work (mon-sat) I don't own a car.

I also box, and spar at least twice a week

So with just those two things my hair has to put up with a lot. I also have to wash my hair 4x a week.(I think I had one run in with mold but its been taken care of)

I started on April 20 so I'm at around 4 months. I have nappy africanish hair so I started seeing locks after 3 weeks.

Here is me 3 weeks jumping rope. [IMG]https://fbcdn-photos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xpf1/t1.0-0/10268641_10202233913305344_3649820703665784063_n.jpg[/img]

Here is me at 2 months. Very UN photogenic locs, all you can see is fuzz, looks like normal hair :( .

but in the mirror or when moving around they are very distinct

Here they are hanging upside down.

Here is me currently almost 4 months.

Much more distinct when relaxed. And kook really wild when moving

I originally had 30++ maybe 40+ but I didn't like how normal they looked. So I combined like...all of them lol. I have like 27 right now. I wish I had 40 decent sized locks, but I'm happy with what I have.

is there a recommended usage for this product? i blindly bought this product just because i liked the vibe i was getting from the website.

been dreading for 3 weeks...thinking of applying it on some unformed dreads and see how it goes.
