tip bands


Introduce Yourself

Gilly's hair is similar. It'snaturally ratherfine and silky and her tips get whispy and loose especially after a good wash. Some times what I do if they are looking rather loose on the ends after they dry, i'll do a little roughing up of the bottoms and do a little twist/rip to sort of lock em into place.

How many dreadlocks do you all have?


General Talk

Gilly's got 32. They range in size really... a few are as big as a sharpie and some are much much smaller.... though she does still have a 4 year olds head so I'm sure are her head grows we'll end up with some different and no doubt interesting things going on!

new dread locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

I also want to throw this out there.... Gilly's grandmother smokes and when we go to visit her, we all come back with the stubborn cling of cigarette smoke lingering on our clothes and in our hair. It's easy enough for me to hop i a shower, but since I dont want Gill sleeping on wet dreads, I've found it very helpful to put some of this gel in and make her locks smelling nice and fresh. I'm really glad that there is a light weight product that I can put in that I know wont leave build up of any sort

I'll admit, I wasn't in love with the scent at first. It seems a little strong in the jar, but once it's in Gill's hair I really love it! She had slept on the pillow next to mine and the next day when I was laying down I thought, "what is that wonderful smell?!?"

I just got mine today and I can't say I like the scent. Definitely not what I was expecting. I did apply it on a few dreads,and I like it so far, so I'll give it a few days and I'll be sure to get it unscented next time.

Dread Shampoo Bars for ALL


Dread Products

So as a non dread-head myself, I use a decent amount of silly products in my hair and after a time you can really feel the build up. Well, a few times now I've used Gilly's nag champa shampoo bar to wash my own hair and then not combed it out after and just let it air dry.

I'm some one with normally very straight (SUPER processed... I've been dying it loads of colours for years) hair and I cant tell you how many compliments I get on those days I've washed with dread shampoo. It gets all light and curly and so so so soft and you can tell it's just clearing out all the gunk that builds up.

So spread the word to your non-dread friends!!!

Separating...


Dread Maintenance

Ha! Almost a year later: I just noticed this too. the bottom half of the dread is getting nice and tight and the top half has split into two. It's a rather thin dread as one, so I hope it works it's self back together. I put a bead about half way up the split.

Should I go higher with it?

Hair at nape of neck won't dread.


General Questions

AHHHHHH

I LOVE this website!!! I just came looking for this exact info! lol what a relief that this is totally the norm for others too. Gilly has SOOOOO much hair at the nape of her neck, it's probably enough to start a few new dreads rather than find it's home with the ones that live there. What's staying is REALLY staying on her neck but the rest is free flowing. I guess we'll see how it goes!

I dont mind the lil whispy hairs around her ears so much, but I did manage to twist em into the lock nearby and slide a bead up over em.

ya know, I used it again last night and didnt have that.

The first time I also wrapped one of her dreads and now I'm wondering if some of the fibers from the thread just stuck to my hand and that was why.

So I got the gel for Gill and I know what Butterfly means. I used it for the first time and on her fine hairs it did look a bit stiff and I was worried it'd stay crunchy, but it wasnt for long.

What I DID notice, however, was today I put her hair up and wrapped a dread around to hold them. When I did that and the dread was spread a bit, it deff looked white and flakey :-/

Maybe I used too much. I'll try using less but maybe it's just not for us.

I noticed some build up on my hands and when i rubbed them together, there was some residue on them that sort of pulled up like glue would. Has that happened to anyone else or am I just using waaaaay too much?

She send me a sample of face soap too and it's super awesome! I love it and feel like I got a lil treat for me since Gilly got the gel lol
