Maturing Dreads?


Dread Maintenance

I have a tingly peppermint shampoo from Trader Joes, but I used to get dread shampoo from a store on etsy, that was in the form of a soap bar. I will go buy some shampoo from the link you've provided!

I have never used wax, as when I researched before starting my dreads, I read bad things about it. So, wax has never touched my hair. I have palm rolled at the beginning, but never do that anymore because I also read that could go either way, and so I just leave them alone now, besides separating them when needed.

I am Cherokee and Blackfoot. But my most Native side is Cherokee. I belong to the Wolf clan.

Maturing Dreads?


Dread Maintenance

Hey there. I have had my dreads for a year and a month now. My dreadlocks are STILL not mature. They still look messy and I still have dreads that look like I just dreaded them yesterday. I have a super long dread (it hasn't shrunk with the rest of them) that hasn't matured at all. And I've got quite a few that are flat because it's the sides that I sleep on.

Sometimes i just want to brush them out. I wear them up because they look still so messy down. Any advice? I've always read that dreads tend to be mature when a year is up. SO, is this normal? I'm Native American, and I've known many Elders or medicine men and women in my clan to have dreadlocks that look amazing, so it can't be my hair texture.

Thank you!
