Quick question(s)


Dread Maintenance

I do usually just rinse lake water out of mine...(seawater i like to leave be) Haven't had access to a pool this year. But i would rinse that too if it were me.

Alright thanks, how bad is chlorine for your hair (going In a pool)? And how bad is going in a lake? While I still have short hair, should I just simply hop in the shower and rinse with just water after going into a lake or pool or ocean?

Unblunting?


Dreading Methods

I'm about 7 months into crochet recovery, i didn't unblunt my tips, but I am thinking about it. I do love my loose hairs now. My scalp is so much more protected when I'm outside. My dreads are softer and look better every day!

How Do I Make My Hair Stonger As I Untangle My Dreadlocks?


Help! Save My Dreads

i mix it with walnut oil to soften up the crochet damage on the ends of my dreads. since they need to 'unravel' a little to heal, i don't worry much about the addition of the oil.

How Do I Make My Hair Stonger As I Untangle My Dreadlocks?


Help! Save My Dreads

it seems to follow the same pricipal as lighter oilsbreaking down heavier oils in my experience. i don't know the scientifics of why it works, only that it helped me remove wax from some of my locs. i used it in it's natural golden form like some would use to 'oil' their dreads, and lo, wax softened up and i was able to get much more washed out. it definately adds some strength though, it's loaded with tocopherols...

Jojoba oil may also help, it will help break down the wax too.
