Going natural from Crochet'd advise


Dreading Methods

Hello,

My son is 4 and I had his dreads crochet'd in 1 year ago, at the time I wasn't sure about which method and hadn't found this site. After the first maintenance appt., I noticed some broken hair so decided to go natural. My question is: should I be doing anything to help the loose hair kinda get sucked in? I wash it with Nicki's Locking up shampoo 3 time a week. He swims a lot, pool and ocean. Most of the dreads are starting to mature with some zig-zags and some of the tips have blunted up. It seems like his dreads are still shrinking and I am sure they will continue to as they mature more. I just need some advise as to what everyone does for maintenance and natural dreads. I do palm roll them every few days, after he takes a bath.

Thanks in advance...

Hello Everyone,

Just been reading on this site for a short time. I have a 4 year old son, he has never had a hair cut. He had beautiful golden locs (hair) but when it got to the middle of his back everyone thought he was a girl. He always liked the story of Samson, in the bible, and I used to tell him he got his strength from his hair like Sampson, and he would always say "but he had dread locs". So, rather than cutting his hair I asked him if he wanted dreads.

I took him to a place everyone recommended, and she was great and did a great job. I took him back once a few months later for maintenance but shortly after that appointment I noticed some short hairs coming out. I realized they were most likely broken hairs from the hook. So, I am going to let them go naturally from this point on.

So, I just wanted to introduce my son (and myself), Hope to chat with you all soon.

hello my brothers and sisters


Introduce Yourself

they look great  well www.dreadlockshampoo.com is the best shampoo.. if your  hairs the  typicaly dry African American hair use the bars but if not (you say its not) the liquid will dread it up faster at te expense of drying the hair out some

knots in dreads  create snap points..since its at the tips that probably wont matter, if it was at the roots or middle that could be a problem.. many have tried fixing weak spots in dreads by adding some knots.. only to find that caused them to break off at the knot..

simply changing what you washed with and how often would most likely have been all you needed to get them to lock

it sure looks like the lil twisting you had done did no real harm.. but yea that wax was pretty nasty huh.. glad ya joined us  .. your dreads look great and now they will  be well cared for

hello my brothers and sisters


Introduce Yourself

Hey  everyone I have been dreading for 11 months now this is my second time around. The first time I tried I tried the beautician and beeswax method with hair clips and dryers but it just became a complete mess. The second time around I started out with a twist sponge for the first month or two and stopped using it. I have unusually soft hair for an African American probably because of the Trinidadian from my fathers side which definitely has some Indian(the country) roots. After 6 month of growth they still weren't  locking so my girl friend tied knot at the top of the twist and they started to loc a little I play in and twist my hair with my fingers often but after reading a lot of post I am thinking that this is not a good I deal so no more twisting or knotting my hair and I am going to go from once a month wash to twice a week. after 8 months the back of my hair wasn't locking at all so I knotted those up last month. I need to know if this is okay or have I done irrevocable damage and any recommendations for a African American with unusually soft hair as far as shampoo or moisturizers I have really greasy hair although I don't use products at all. I need full hair care plan please any and all help is welcomed.

I guess he’s just not my kind of sound. I really like stuff like Black Uhuru to Eek-A-Mouse to Carleton to SOJA and most of the in between. I just don’t typically listen to Bob Marley. I like Stephen, ziggy and especially Damian though. I guess it’s just a matter of preference.

Second Time Dreading


Introduce Yourself

Thanks for the info regarding lathering, soaring eagle. It's good to be back. I used my Bucks County soap last night and really enjoyed the smell. A little goes a long way there.

My wife and I typically try to use natural vegan type products due to the toxic chemicals within most hygiene products so this isn't a hard transition for me. About four weeks in and enjoying what I'm seeing. I do look a bit disheveled currently because of the amount of frizz and my hair being everywhere but one little dread in the back of my head actually looks like a lock already. Haha.
