Washing more frequently okay?


General Questions

Actually, the more you wash your hair, at least with shampoo, the oilier it gets after a couple days to compensate for washing away the natural oils all the time. With BS/ACV it should be less of a problem, and like others said, you can wash it a few times a week now, especially with short hair, but it'd be good to get your hair used to washing less often. You can try adding a day between washing for a while til you're up to a week or so.

I switched to BS/ACV a couple weeks before I started my journey and at first my hair would get kinda oily after a few days but now I can go at least 4-5 days before I notice my hair change at all.

Congo?


General Questions

I'm a little over a month into growing my dreadies and my first one that looped and locked is now being weird. Now it looks like two dreads are connected at the loop. The main problem is I'm not sure if they were one dread when the loop was first formed or if the second dread congoed with it. It looks like it's weaved into the loop too much to be a congo within the past week, but I just can't be sure anymore lol. I tried separating the two the other day and they came apart easily, but I stopped at the loop since I'm worried I'll destroy it if I pull them apart. Now they're basically totally separate except for at the loop and I dunno what to do! Should I leave it and let it congo or pull them apart? I'd rather leave it but I'm also worried it might end up being too big. Maybe I'm supposed to have one bigger lock than the rest. ;)

Hopefully the photos show it well enough.

Solace of the Solitary


General Talk

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to add a couple things. I don't think it's so much a bandwagon effect at this site, it's just that spiritual people are drawn to this site rather than DHHQ or other sites. The energy here is more in alignment with us. I can only speak for myself when I say that but I think others would agree. All natural locks is a major theme here and I think many spiritual people would rather go natural (like me!) than go to some salon.

As for the debate, great points have been made but ultimately it's silly to debate spirituality. People feel what they feel. Science is great and all, but it isn't perfect and it doesn't know all there is to be known. As for me, I've experienced things that science can't put under the microscope and I don't need science to affirm any of it.

Here's a funny fact: Ren Descartes, the founder of modern science, began his path after having a dream in which an angel said to him,

"The conquest of nature is to be accomplished through number and measure."

loops lumps kinks and zig zags in dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

I'm glad this thread is still alive! I read through it all and wish there were more posts. ;p I'm at one month now and I'm starting to get loops. One of my dreads that got a loop last week now has two! xD It's starting to look like it could form into an aum symbol. I hope so.

I'm also worried about losing so much length. I love long hair too. When I started last month, my hair was (and still is so far) about halfway down my back. I hope I don't lose more than half length and it stays at least at or below my shoulders.

A true self expression


Introduce Yourself

Welcome and great start! One advantage you have with your hair not being crazy long is that your dreads will form and mature (and then grow) faster. I wish I had started dreads when I was 22. ;p

The journey


Introduce Yourself

Hi all, Eric here. I've been on here for a few weeks now, around the same time I decided to let my hair grow into dreads. I think it's actually the other way around though. I've thought about getting dreads here and there for maybe ten years but I haven't had really long hair til now. I haven't really been combing it, except like a couple swipes on the top of my head, and I let the rest go. Recently I made the switch from shampoo to BS/ACV and around that time, even before, I noticed my hair started sectioning. It made me think of dreads and one day a few weeks ago I made the decision to just let my hair do its thing and start locking. So I think it was actually my hair that decided to dread rather than me. :) Now must be the time!

I posted a couple photos last week of how my hair looked when it was just starting to section. Now I'm somewhere between week 2 and 3 and I think some baby dreads are starting to form. I've seen loops come and go but quite a few sections are starting to take shape. Most of the top of my head hasn't sectioned yet but I have like 6-8 forming on each side on the lower half of my hair. I can take some photos if anyone wants to see how it is now.

I love this site and I'm glad I found it before I got sucked into the propaganda of DHHQ, but honestly I think I would've just let my hair go anyway. The thought of spending $100 on some "elite kit" seems counter to the whole idea of dreadlocks. I think the only things I'll ever use is shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com and a sea salt spray, but for now and probably for a few years I'll just stick with BS/ACV unless I start to get problems.

I'm pretty shy and can be self-conscious and tend to care what others think more than I should. That has started to shift but I expect this journey to be an amazing one that will teach me many things as my dreads and I grow together. Thank you, Soaring Eagle, for this site and your wisdom and knowledge, and everyone else here too!

BS+ACV for Baldhead?!


Dread Maintenance

Along with the Biotin, you could add some rosemary essential oil drops in your ACV rinse. You can use the rinse after the shampoo even if you don't use the BS. It promotes hair growth among other benefits!

From organicfacts.net:

Hair care: Rosemary oil and rosemary teas are widely used for hair care in shampoos and lotions. Regular use of rosemary oil helps to stimulate follicles, making hair grow longer and stronger. It is also believed that rosemary oil slows down premature hair loss and graying of the hair. Therefore, it is an excellent tonic for bald people or those who are beginning to show signs on male pattern baldness.

David Icke Debunking Himalayan Salt?


Dread Products

I agree with a lot of what David Icke says. Sure, some of his stuff is pretty "out there" for some, and he goes further than most dare to, but he's done a TON of research (I've read one of his books) and he knows what he's talking about. Truth is definitely stranger than fiction.

As for the salt, I guess just be careful where you buy it. I haven't used anything from dreadlockshampoo.com but I plan to when I need some! One thing I know is that naturally occurring fluoride is fine (it's even in breast milk). The stuff you want to avoid is the toxic, industrial scrubber waste fluoride they put in our water and toothpaste. I also know iodine is good and it's been removed from I think our water over the years, but what ppm is good and other details I couldn't say.

Without going into it much more, the idea of divide and conquer the human race through endless conflict has been the MO of the top of the pyramid for thousands of years. Who/what they are and other related things I won't say what I believe. It doesn't really matter what they are... they're still pure evil, and they do exist.

Fixing Damage from Long Term BS/ACV washing?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I like using BS/ACV though. ;\ I've only been doing it for about a month now, once every 7-10 days, and my hair hasn't been negatively affected yet, but I like the idea of using something completely natural. I would like to keep using it for a long time but I suppose it's not a good idea huh? Does the dry, brittle hair happen to everyone who uses BS over time or it just depends? I rinse my hair with cool water at the end to close the cuticles and I'm sure that helps. I just wonder if that's enough.

When to bead?


Dread Accessories

I'm not at the point yet where I can put in beads but good to know about the wood! I think when I get there I'll just avoid wood and metal.. unless I happen to find a really cool wooden one that's worth it. :)

Actually I have one dread that's starting to form enough that I think I could put a bead on but I'm just easing myself into everything (plus I don't have any beads yet anyway).
