These are good news! I'm happy for you that progress takes place and you don't have to restart or have to use a different method! The natural process works great on everybody's hair.

wheresmylocks:

My water is soft so think I'm going to use

bronners. I seen that here is Dr bronners hair

Rinse and also bronners castle soap. Which one do you use?

You can use the castile soap. The ratio for deluting it with water is 1:18 i think.

washing


Dread Maintenance

You can try Dr Bronners liquid soap. Depends on the type of water you have (hard or soft) if it works or not. Bronners only works with soft water! You can try to wash only with water, but i wouldnot suggest that. At the mMoment i wash with White soap from Marseille. You should be able to get this too in the uk.

Hi Paul! Nice that you have found this site and that you have decided to go natural! I have also tried out different methods before, but going natural is the best and easiest! Your curly hair looks perfect for dreading up fast, lets do this!

Cheers from Germany!

Dreads unraveling!? Super frizzy


General Questions

Well, you have definitely some wax in your hair, because you went to the salon for almost a year and wax should be removed completely.

Seperation of strands that want to congo together is part of the process. Maybe separate your hair when it's wet? Separate from the root up, with a finger between two strands and pulling the finger up gently

Dreads unraveling!? Super frizzy


General Questions

In my opinion you need to get the wax out of your hair first, because it prevents from dreading. The frizz is actually good because then the hair can create knots. Don't twist or retwist your hair again, that will cause damage and probably the thinning you describe.

On this forum is a lot information how to grow healthy dreadlocks, you can read how to get rid of the wax and what is good or bad for the hair. I have learned a lot througt here and i just wash my hair and leave it alone, that is all you need to get locks, no studio, no maintainance, no products, just time.

Good luck on your journey!

Will this hair ever dread? Feeling frustrated


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Hey!

I think everything is fine, you are doing nothing wrong! Everybody has different hair, so everybody's journey is different. You just have to take it as it comes... I am at 6 month of going natural, and most of the people don't realize that i am dreading my hair, they think i have very thick and curly hair, that's it. If i would expect them to notice what's going on, it would be pure frustration, but i don't expect anything. At my 6 month mark something different is going on, some hair feels more like a dread than it was before, but still everything is going very very slow...

Maybe it will help you to lower your expectations? There will be time with not much visible changes and there will be time with more visible changes and you cannot do much except being patient, maybe try to not wait for something to happen, just let it happen whenever it will.

All the best for your journey!

African Black Soap


Dread Maintenance

I have read good things about African Black Soap. On a german Dread Page a lot of people using it as a dread shampoo and it seem to work good, at least for them! I want to try it out, too in the near future. I can give you a note about how it works out on my baby dreads (6 month old)...

btw Aleppo Soap should also work good (100% Olive Oil)
