Effects Of Water Rinsing


Dread Maintenance

Isn't ACV bad for your dreads, doesn't it weaken your hair over time? I mean I know the baking soda weakens your hair but hasn't it also been shown that ACV is also bad for your hair. The oils are certainly why you don't have an itch, but you need to be careful not to overdo the oiling because getting oil stuck in your hair is NOT fun. I once over did it with coconut oil, and it felt kinda gross to have oil stuck in my dreads.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

Oh, I am keeping it going, just waiting for time to do its thing, there is only really one part that sees a razor and that's just for practicality, I might let all of it go natural, I'm just unsure how bushy I want the sides to be. Again, time will be my guide there.

Required Length For Beardlocks


General Questions

I have started to regrow my beard after trimming it off...I just missed it way too much to not grow it out again. I may or may not let it dread when it gets to the proper length again, I plan to just wait and see on that. I updated my profile picture so that matches what the current length is.

Moving Forward With Nature: My Dreadlock Journal

So within the last few weeks, I added sea salt to my drbronner's shampoo mixture and it has really helped my parting start to seal up more and more, hopefully, it will do the trick. Attached is a photo of the parting that is down the center of my head.

I spent two days in the ocean, and it did wonders for my roots, more than any sea salt spray had done thus far, here is the results:

4 years 3 months,

they are very hard to fit in the photo frame, that is both annoying and making me proud. 

I have been trying to wear them in different ways to fix the parting issue, but what I have just now realized works for my parting issue is making sure the loose hair at the root is going in the proper direction for the parting, but so far that seems to be the thing that has helped the most.

Question on Roots


Dread Maintenance

I've tried wearing it different ways, that didn't really help seem to help it. As for the deep clean do you mean a baking soda & apple cider vinegar deep clean? If so, I stopped doing those due to the damage they can do to dreads.

To Congo Or Not To Congo


General Questions

I'm probably going to just allow any baby dreads to join where they feel like joining and leave it at that, as I am not so sure I want to just cease literally all separation of my dreads.

Question on Roots


Dread Maintenance

During the last year, I had used a soap that was a little overly conditioning, and this left my roots a bit looser than they had been in the past. I have been trying to fix this using sea salt sprays weekly and simply washing my dreads regularly (On average about once a week). How long should it take for my roots to fix themselves again?

I was also wondering on a related note if the parting going down the top of my crown ever going to fully close up or if that is just the way the parting is? Attached is a photo I just took of my still drying dreads, but the top of my head appears to be dry.

Yeah, what you just described is pretty much the type of practice I would love to do, haha, I'm often called a hippie by people.
