Introduce Yourself

I've had a little detour. I've been washing about every 5-6 days, and last night I just couldn't stand the itchiness. I gave my hair a pretty good scrub, mostly at the scalp, with dreadlocks shampoo. Got it pretty soapy and rubbed shampoo all over. It felt much better, but I may have loosened some hair. It still has the curls and strands, which is great.

i need to stop twisting and pulling at it, there were a lot of hairs falling out when I scrubbed and I'm sure the directions I'm pulling aren't the same as my hair wants to go. 

Since I feel less itchy, I'm going to start washing every 3 days or so. And renew my patience and restraint!

only about 3 weeks. More like "forgot to comb your hair" style.

Your hair is beautiful! I actually kind of love it the way it is. As you can probably tell, the dreads start forming at the ends, and sort of work their way up,as the hair grows into them. You will probably see your hair start to "shrink." Search here for some "baby dreads" photos and you'll see what happens. I like the look of the loose locks anyway, and yours will look great that way. It's hard not to pull or twist at them, but that's part of the process. Could take months/years. :)

Hi,

i think soaring eagle answered your other post - try to get some dreadlocks shampoo and wash every 4-5 days without rubbing it all apart. He recommends scrubbing at your scalp and not using a towel. Can you post some pictures? The people I've heard using salt water or ocean swimming seem to get good outcomes. How long is your hair? Mine is only 4-5 inches, maybe 6 in the back.

Washing - early stages


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Washing according to your advice. I still find the hair on top is a bedhead mess, but hoping that as the rest starts to form sections, it will help that along. One thing I can say for sure is that my length is shortening as the curls curl up and mush together. But that's okay! I'm also taking biotin to help the growth.

Yes, I am learning some patience! Part of the appeal for me is that the dreads reflect where you are in your journey, and the achievement is in the patience and willingness to wait and watch without interfering. I admire people who obviously have so much time and peacefulness invested in their locks!

Washing - early stages


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Ordered some shampoo from dreadlocks shampoo, and it smells great and really leaves your hair clean and smooth. Unfortunately, by scrubbing a little and rinsing under full shower pressure, it seems to have separated out all kinds of hair on the top. Only the back stayed somewhat bunched together in curls. I'm going to wash only once per week because my hair is dry and doesn't get that grungy. Guess this is going to be a longer path than I thought but that's okay.

Wow, your hair looks great! I have a similar approach, not sure if "real dreads" (thick and clumpy) is even my goal. It's just about peace and freedom. Whatever is natural is the way your hair wants to express your unique perspective. Keep it up! Thanks for posting.
