Effects Of Water Rinsing


Dread Maintenance

I used just water on my hair today (only because it had been 3 days since my last wash) I wanted to do something to combat the itchiness I felt. Oddly enough it worked quite well to fix the itch, I even used a cold water rinse to close the hair follicles...but I felt like a heavy or odd feeling on my roots, I have been using the tea tree tingle shampoo from Trader Joe's for a while, and I am wondering if that feeling I felt was the leftover bits of the shampoo (although I am very careful to wash it all out), if there is any, as for some reason my eyes really stuck a bit as the water ran off my hair, which in spite of the  ingredient listed in the shampoo claiming to irritate the eyes, this doesn't happen often (which is sort of why I am wondering if I can stick with this liquid soap, since it would be a much simpler means to wash my hair.)

I guess the question I am left with from this is, was it the warm water I first used or just the act of getting the oil off my scalp that helped the itch? I am attaching a picture of my now dry dreads as further documentation of how my parting is probably fixed :D

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Ok, so I guess I'll have to decide if I want to go with the liquid tea tree shampoo, or go with the bronner's bar soap.

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Ok, I'll keep that in mind, in regards to the ingredients in the Dr Bronner's bar soap, since it states that the peppermint bars (the only ones I can currently readily find to buy locally), would it help in tightening up my roots, or would it be better to stick to adding sea salt to Dr Bronner's liquid and or using the tea tree shampoo?

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I think it was Soaring Eagle who said I should change up my parting for about 4 months to fix the issue I have. I have been wondering if after the 4 months have passed do I keep have to consciously flip it or can I relax on that?

The bar in question is the peppermint one.

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I re-checked the ingredients recently from a package of the soap, the bar soap does in fact, contain sea salt, not sodium chloride. The ingredients are as follows: organic coconut oil, organic palm oil, sodium Hydroxide (but it claims that none actually remains in the soap after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin), water, organic olive oil, Metha Arvensis, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, Metha Piperita, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Tocopherol. 

It seems like it's pretty good.

I just realized that dr bronnersdoes have salt in it (at least the bars appear to, according to their website) does that mean it can help dreads tighten up without the need of sea salt sprays?

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I do think that. I'm more wondering how much longer I should consciously flip my hair over to the side before it is finally sealed.   On a side note,....I am sort of wondering if I can continue to use the tea tree shampoo I have been using? As I am finding it is a really nice way to both get sea salt in my hair (and out obviously) and it's a bit less work than having to spray it on and or mix up a spray. (it's the one from Trader Joe's...I mean I haven't really had any issues with irritation (unless I get it in my eyes, haha). Still up in the air if I'll stick with it or go with dr. Bronner's bars. (end of side note)

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I figured I would make this a forum topic so that maybe other can benefit from this question.

I have a question on parting dreads, as I have said in other places on here my parting was done so that my dreads lay a certain way, and I was told on here to wear my hair in various ways for a few months to try and correct the 'gap' (as I call it) on my parting, for the most part, when I remember to flip my hair to various sides or back, I do wear it that way now when I remember to do so (which isn't 24/7, but more of when I actually remember to wear it that way...). I'm attaching a picture, with the general question of, how much longer would it possibly take to fix this? And now, as I write this looking at the photo, I realize that with the relaxed separating I do for them (as they really don't need much anymore at all), that helps too, so that it may get fixed soon.

Thanks for any and all advice!
