Don't use LUSH products on Dreads


Dread Products

I use their products for more than 2 years now. Recently cut off 3 dreads, nothing in it... I don't have problems with it.

dread shampoo by Lush


Dread Maintenance

I'm using it right now. I have the bottle now for a month I think and wash 2x a week. I'm happy with it but prefer the "big" shampoo more. Also the karma komba is a nice one, but that's a solid shampoo.

Dread Maintenance

I had that also in the beginning, after a while i stopped looking at them daily and suddenly when i looked again after a few months they looked so nice :) the worst months where around 3 and then when they were 6-8 months old, now they are nice :)

wax vs. no wax


Dread Products

I don't think that will make a big difference after a whole year. And if there is any wax left over time it will be gone because I won't let them grow for to long. Halfway my back is a fine length for me, so then I cut the wax pieces of. They also became a bit loose after the 2 rinses I did so I would have felt or seen it if there was any left.

wax vs. no wax


Dread Products

My story is similar to some others here. Also had my dreads made with back comb and crochet. The woman in the salon did some wax in it and told me I had to do that to. But I had a weird feeling about the wax and didn't buy it. I thought, I'll wait a few weeks and then decide what to do. First night was like hell! Wax all over my pillow, my face, everywhere. The day after, same problem, every time I wanted to put them up my hands were full of wax. She also told me that I had to wait for 3 weeks to wash them but I was sick of it. So after 1 day I rinsed them for about 10 minutes with acv, the next day repeated it and the wax seemed all gone. I have them about a year now, didn't do much to them during that year except washing and separating.

Dreads get frizzy after shower


Dread Maintenance

In my opinion they don't look neat but damaged. Mine are also frizzy after showering but i usually wash them when i know i don't have to go outside that day. After sleeping on them for a night they look nice again.

Breakage


Help! Save My Dreads

I was thinking the same thing, bleach burns. Just look what it does with clothes if you spill on it. Also, i don't think that was a safe thing to do. I wouldn't like bleach that close to me face and eyes...

Visual Differences: Natural dreads vs all the other methods


General Questions

Mine were made with crochet hook and are also in different shapes and sizes and thickness. So that is not a fact for telling they ate natural. I think if you have them for like 2 years you can't tell it how they were made to start with. Only if they continue maintaining them with a crochet hook or something.

i just got done dreading a 2 days ago and i wanna put my hair back but my scalp hurt. will this go away?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I saw the pics on your profile and noticed they were made maybe with crochet hook? And most of them lay in the direction of your face. So I think that is the reason. You basically push them in the opposite direction then you made them, so you pull at your hairs that are tight in these dreads when you want them to go back. It will get better in a few days or a week I think.
