natural dreads definintion


General Talk

it's true, people get really confused when i tell them you dont have to "make" dreads. they dont understand at all and hardly believe me when i say you could just wash your hair and stop combing to get dreads. it's eye-opening for them. im always so grateful that i found this site before i could start obsessing over loops and curls and loose ends. it makes the whole concept of dreadlocks into a real journey and learning experience.

Uber dry hair :'(


General Questions

i was using a mixture of honey, chamomile, and lemon on my hair to lighten it a couple of months ago and i noticed my dreads started to come undone and my hair started getting really soft again. then i read that honey is a natural conditioner. maybe you want to look into that and try doing a honey-water mixture on your dreads. but if they're really young that might slow down progress.

i found this on google for honey hair treatment that doesnt use honey and actual hair conditioner. apparently you can just dilute some in water and rinse your hair with it. i dont kno about the beer part...http://www.ehow.com/facts_5124613_beer-honey-hair-treatment.html

i've been using shampoos from dreadlockshampoo.com and they are really wonderful. they dont leave your scalp dry at all, just really clean and fresh-feeling. they're not conditioning per se but they are definitely not drying. take a look at them.

wow, sorry i wrote so much...cant sleep right now.

Slowing down of progress


General Questions

i was just wondering the same thing today! i used tnr, and it's only been 3 months, but the first two months were filled with lots of knotting and separating. i would wake up every morning to find new progress. but for the passed two weeks or so i havent noticed any changes. i'm thinking it has to do with the weather...but your slow period is a lot longer than mine so far so i doubt yours is about weather conditions. sorry im not helping really, haha, but you're definitely not alone in this question.

accessorizing baby dreads


Dread Accessories

i dont know if you were talking to me, but yea, a lot of my tnr dreads came out the first couple weeks. just give it time. put some beads in your hair, wash, separate, and relax. the less you play with your hair the better and faster it will knot up. use sea salt rinse or spray to speed it up but dont over do it.

Did your tnr fall out? I showered today and noticed that all the hair towards the nape of my neck completely unknotted and the rest lost about half and is just silky smooth hair, which was weird because my hair normally gets super tangled and messy after showering =/
