More than a year in and my hair is still a mess lol


Introduce Yourself

I used the nutregena stuff in the very beginning and the residue was horrid. I bought the patchouli one from them and got a sample of the nag champa with it. The bar was so big I had to cut it in half. The first half lasted me two months and that was using it to wash my hair and my face. Right now I'm using one of the sample pieces of nag champa I got,it smells so wonderful I love them both. The shipping was super fast mine came much sooner than I had expected.

Itchy scalp.


Dread Maintenance

Lavender is also great. You can mix them with water in a spray bottle and spritz yourself when you start getting itchy, I did that in the beginning when I got to the itchy stage, it's a nice quick relief without going to all the trouble of a shower

Which method is best?


Dreading Methods

My hair is like that too. I went all natural. As for the shampoo, get something else I used it when my dreads were still rather new like a few months old and it leaves a horrible build up, my scalp was so slimy and itchy it was really gross. I used bs and avc after that and it cleared up the residue issue now I use the bars from bucks country being that you're just starting though I'd reccomend bs and avc

Question for you natural dreadies


General Talk

The first month is generally the hardest, but once you get past that it's like nothin. Jus be patient they'll come. I think mine finally started to begin locking at about a month and a half or so and once they started there was no stoping them. Enjoy your journey now these moments are very special even if they seem minor now you'll look back at them and miss them. In the end you're going to have something very special that he's gonna miss out on.

Knot Issues


Help! Save My Dreads

Stop messing with them. The white stuff could be hair follicles from be pulled by the bands. Don't backcomb them or anything just wash (non residue wash or bs & avc) separate and let them be they'll lock up in time when theyre ready. Just enjoy the journey. Blessings

two tailed dread?


Dread Maintenance

I'm not sure about the back combing thing, but I would say if you want them to be one bead it or separate them all together. I ve never had any split but I have had some that I wanted to come together and I just beaded them together at the center to help coax them together

Close to cutting off my baby dreads.


Dread Maintenance

My locks are 6 months and a lot of them still have looser tips. I started using the dreadlock shampoo from buck country ( dreadlockshampoo.com) and have noticed my roots beginning to lock up more and quickly. Stop going to the salon just get a good dreadlock shampoo, wash, separate and let them happen in there own time. Locks arent even remotely considered mature until at least one full year, so your not even half way yet so be patient and love the journey and you will be greatly blessed.

separation


Dread Maintenance

Wet hair has more elasticity to it so it's less painful than doing it dry. I found I prefer to do it when it's about half way dry, for me when it's wet it seems my hair just stretches instead of separating but if I wait till its a little dryer it separates like wet without hurting like dry. Just play around with it try separating at different degrees of wet and dry and see what works best for you. I also found that doing some separation while washing helps too.
