I've separated a couple more large forked dreads. Everything is still going well. Though I'm still surprised that I have to separate after basically every shower. 

So another question. What carrier do you use for your essential oils?

Unfortunately no. I'm hoping I can next year. This year just didn't pan out in that direction.

I just realized I didn't put a one year update! It's so hard to believe it's been that long. I've grown so much as a person since starting this journey. Not just because of dreads obviously but this year has been one of self discovery, personal growth and individuality. I've gone from a home bound, scared individual in a crappy job to this. I quit my job and am now traveling the US with my two cats using the WWOOF program. I'm happier and more confident than I've ever been. 

My my dreads are not what I had envisioned at all. I wanted thin wispy ended dreads with a few kinks and what do I have? Chunky, bumpy, flat ended dreads. But you know what? That's ok. They are uniquely me and mine.

Yes. I was alternating between the liquid and bars.

Well I haven't cut any off. Can't bring myself to do it. I've gone this long might as well continue. In a general update my hair was getting soft and I had a lot of loose hairs. I thought maybe it was just a phase but I discovered it was the extreamly hard water. After moving to another house down the road with a water softening system my hair has tightened right up and the loose hairs are way less. Since I no longer have any loose undreaded sections I decided to count them. 55 in total. 4 of them are quite thick because I allowed them to congo but most are average sized and a couple are thin.

I'm seriously considering doing a small undercut on both sides of my head. I really miss having something to cut but I really don't want the punk look. Decisions are hard. If I do it I'll set back three years of growth and I'm afraid it won't look that great. 

If if I did do it how would I go about reattaching the removed dreads to another dread so I can keep them?

shampoo reviews


Dread Products

Angeleyes:

Regarding shampoo, somewhere I saw @soaring-eagle mention a charcoal shampoo that isn't listed on the dreadlockshampoo.com website and also that baking soda can weaken hair.

I've seen elsewhere, that dreads should be soaked once a month in baking soda to prevent mold.

Does this charcoal shampoo do this?

Or is it necessary to use anything as a monthly soak, if you're already using a great shampoo?



I wouldn't recommend soaking in baking soda. That's a sure way to end up with severely damaged hair.

The charcoal shampoo is a deep cleaner. If your hair feels especially dirty, you were using shampoos that left residues or some such as that. That's when you use it.

The best way to prevent mold is to make sure your hair is dry before putting anything over it like a hat and before you go to bed. You can also put mold inhibiting essential oils in your hair or shampoo. If you get mold or worried you might Dreadlock Shampoo has a mold preventer and treatment called Rot Knot.

Washing too often due to itchy oily scalp


Help! Save My Dreads

Hello welcome to the forum. We are both 6-7 months along. I'll third(?) the suggestion to dreadlockshampoo.com. Before dreads I fought an itchy, flakey, yet oily scalp forever. I though I was just going to have to live with it. I was allergic to every shampoo I ever tried no matter how natural they claimed to be. And believe me that was allot. Those problems are now gone.

So far I've tried all the liquid shampoos from Vicki. I still have a total of about two bottles leftbetween all the scents. The only one I don't like is the Nag Champa. For some reason it makes me feel nauseous. The Dragons Blood is my favorite for sure.

I'm wondering if even though the bottom of the back of my head is still loose I might need to change to the bars some of the times. My dreaded hair is starting to feel a bit dry and I've got loose hairs trying to attach theirselves to areas they shouldn't be. Kind of hard to explain but like bridging from an area two inches away across three dreads to the center of a mature dread.
