Bleached dreads?


Introduce Yourself

It was professional quality, mixed correctly and everything. I'll probably head over to the health store today and get those oils. I'm willing to try anything=\

Bleached dreads?


Introduce Yourself

I've been using Vickis from dreadlockshampoo.com. It doesn't seem to be helping, even the bars. I've washed my hair about 3 times in the last 24 hours on top of rinsing several times after bleaching just trying to make sure it's all out. It still has an almost slimy texture when it's wet=\

Bleached dreads?


Introduce Yourself

I bleached my dreadlocks last night, just gently coating the outside of them being careful not to mush it into them. And my hair feels really dry, and I'm having to separate hourly because everything just wants to dread together. I know I could use ACV, coconut milk, and aloe to condition and I plan to, but if that doesn't help enough, just how much harm would using a commercial deep conditioner just once do? I just don't want my hair becoming so weak that if have to cut them. I love the color, but I'm starting to regret it=[

Great idea! =] even though I'd never use it for its purpose, I'm not a wasteful person. I like finding new ways to use things I normally wouldn't if I have them anyway. People have told me just to give it to someone else that does use it for their dreads and I just can't support that.

Or even suggest alternative uses for dread wax. I got some for Christmas last year and Ive found lots of uses for the stuff. It weatherproofs well, I use it on hard to zip zippers, to make thread stiffer to thread through a needle when sewing, and the list goes on.

Oh, awesome. At least it's making SOME difference. With time they'll possibly learn. Since they're just about cash, maybe they could market herbal rinses or something actually good for dreads to make up for lost sales if/when they stop pushing wax. I'm sure that's the only reason they haven't, they rely on the sales, but if we can suggest alternative products it could be convincing. Sure, they'll probably over price it, but it won't be destroying dreadlocks. Same for the home made ones.

There's a lot of sellers on etsy that make their own and market it.Some news about dreadheadhq though, an acquaintance of mine, knowing I was against the use of wax, told me I could "fix" my dreadlocks with a new waxless kit dhhq offers, I told Hershey don't need fixed but thanked her for thinking about me. As misinformed as it was, still a nice gesture. But anyways, at least it's a start that they're offering waxfree options. I looked it up and it still comes with a crochet hook and a latch hook so it's a very small step, but a step in the right direction regardless.
