Starting out?


Introduce Yourself

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!

Here are my two week pics. Not sure I see anything happening... but I'm continuing, using dreadlocks shampoo.

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.

Washing - early stages


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

This is a very basic question, but I can't find the answer. How gently do you wash your undreaded hair at the very beginning when it is just starting to section itself? I have thick hair, it's beginning to look like pieces separating but nothing distinct.

At this stage, do you wash under the full pressure of a shower? Would a running bath faucet loosen the pieces? I'm trying to lightly rinse and not let the water pressure get all over the roots. I'm also not scrubbing with fingertips, but rather putting whole palms on my head and just pushing the water around a bit.

And I'm barely towel drying with just light pressure, not rubbing at all. Is this correct? Doing this actually seemed to make the pieces more distinct.

Should I sun dry?

Hi,

your hair looks similar to mine, except longer in the bangs/front. I am letting my hair go and I'm just starting out,too. (Although I'm older than you!) Pleass post pics and keep us updated on your progress. I'm trying to relax and enjoy the process.

Welcome from England, I think I may have gone through something similar myself a year or two ago, though of course no two people walk the exact same way. Keep focussing on peace and it shall be yours, best of luck buddy!

Thank you!
