new dread locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

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

need help with "dread up due" or "dreadlock styles for women"


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Sometimes I put Gilly's dreads half up in two french braids and it looks really nice!

I take about 5 dreads from the front (she has 32 so most of em are on the bigger side) and start to braid and pick up a few more as i got and stop about half way. Then I tie it offwith one of her thinner dreads and move on to the other side and do the same thing.

I let the bottom half of her dreads hang free and it looks really nice, I think :-)

I'll take a picture next time I put them up like that

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.

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?
