Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Raven's Light:

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.

Strange because their website has it listed as "salt" not "sea salt". Sea salt is sodium chloride also by the way, all salt is sodium chloride. The only difference would be the "impurities" like zinc, iron etc.
What specific bar is it?

Question on Parting Dreads


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

☮ soaring eagle ॐ:

does it have sodium chloride or does it have sea salt



Bronners bars contain NaCl (Sodium chloride; table salt) which chemically isnt different from seasalt.
Seasalt is still NaCl but depending on where it is from contains lots of different trace minerals.

I dont know enough about locks to know if its the salt, or the trace minerals that actually help tighten them up.
All salt came from the sea, the only real difference as far as I learned in school was that table salt is processed to remove said trace minerals.

(To clarify when I said all salt comes from the sea - Yes there are mines which means salt is coming from the earth but those deposits had been caused by an ocean that used to be in that region of the world)

Threw away my comb on July 1st 2016, I really was trying to wait to get a decent camera before posting pictures but Ive noticed notable changes that I want to document.
I still don't have anyone to help me separate so I struggle with the back of my head.

Straight hair in dreams.....nightmare!


General Talk

I liked reading those stories.
I was wondering (assumed I wasnt alone) if other people have strange dreams like this.
A few weeks ago I had a dream that I was showering and washing my hair, my dreads seemed a lot more mature than they are now but when I was washing them one (at least 2/3rds of it) just pulled out of my scalp with no resistance. I was trying to reattach it unsuccessfully lol.

Woke up in such a panic its strange how our brains will make us dream about stuff like that.
I wonder if its my brain telling me its afraid of unintentionally losing them, it happened only a few days after I had an African lady tell me she would "cut them off herself" if she ever saw me again....smh.

Dealing with Criticism


General Questions

Just have to remember whats right for us isnt right for everyone else.
Opinions are like  assholes, everyone has one and they all stink eh?

Ive come to understand people who hate dreads dont know much about them in the first place.
They assume dreads=low life drug user or dirty bummy hippy.
Need to explain to them dreads are the natural state of human hair, and they are the ones who are actually strange for spending so much excess money/time trying to fit the "normal" standard made by humans.

Its all love from me but sometimes I wonder, did theses peoples parents ever told them "If you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all.

Is it normal for only like half of your head to be dreaded by 11 months if you are doing freeform/natural/neglect?


General Questions

yeah, from what I understand it can take up to two years for most/all of your hair to end up in dreads.
I personally started on July 4th, what has formed mostly seemed to be around the edges of my hair. Along my forehead, along back of neck, around ears etc it like makes a circle around my head but most of the "crown" of my head doesnt seem to want to dread as easily. Im sure it will just take more time/patience.

Unsure on New Forming Dreads


General Questions

How big is too big?
I know Ive heard "its all about what you like and if you like how it looks it doesnt matter"
I can only imagine a lock that in a 3inch by 3inch (heaven forbid) section would be near miserable to try drying.
Also I could imagine at that point you may end up getting "tugging" making it uncomfortable because its pulling at your scalp.

If thats the case is 1 inch okay? My friend is a licensed cosmetologist, I was thinking maybe once a month going to her and having her make sure nothing is locking in larger than a 1 to 1 1/2 inch sections.
Just to clarify all she would do is separate them by hand if they are getting too large, nothing else.

Washing


Dread Maintenance

When you say you are washing it once a week do you mean with shampoo once a week, or only once a week in total.
My hair didnt really start to lock up until I stopped using shampoo completely and washed my hair with water every day before I left my house.
I havnt noticed any sweaty smell.
Water, air dry, profit?
