Question on Parting Dreads
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
I just realized that
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
I figured I would make this a forum topic so that maybe other can benefit from this question.
I have a question on
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!
So I have been washing my hair with the tea tree tingle shampoo from Trader Joe's the last few weeks what follows is a current photo of the 'gap' on the top of my head. I haven't really had anything bad in terms of skin issues from using that shampoo, and actually as of the latest wash (which I had shampooed twice) my roots like really good, I do see some looping still happening with them. I know that's healthy, but I'm wondering when that is going to settle down. I'm hoping I'll be able to continue to use this product on my dreads as far as a liquid shampoo goes it has been good.
I do keep wondering how many washes it takes to know if a product is good for your dreads and not too prone to build up or not. I may still switch over to the
Ok, I was hoping so, I guess I'll know better after I get done with the
I'm aware that the bars won't last nearly as long as the liquid, but if I were to use a soap saver bag could I at least get like maybe about 3 months if not longer out of a bar?
I heard about the bars being ok in hard water as far as residue goes from another user on here I think it was Frankster who said it.
Which is better for mature dreads? And if so why?

I am highly considering switching from
3 years 9 months update (a day late). My gap overall seems like it'll seal up eventually, one of the photos shows that it seems like it has a longer way to go than even I realized it was like...hoping it will all turn out ok. I am currently alternating between using the Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo and Dr. Bronners....the tea tree shampoo already has sea salt in it....would also using a sea salt spray in conjunction with that shampoo be too much salt? (I keep wondering if maybe I should stick with the tea tree shampoo for a while, but some of the ingredients have me second guessing that). Any input would be appreciated.
I have a question, for a long while now, I have been feeling like I may want to transition to shampooing only once a week, and rinsing my hair with just water another day (only done during the warmer months that is) - but I keep wondering if this would actually be helpful to my dreads, such as allowing my natural sebum to travel from my scalp into and down my dreads or if it would not really do anything beneficial for them at all, ie just do nothing but get my hair wet?
