Dread seperation advice


Dread Maintenance

Thank you guys for your replies.

I really don't know why it's taking so long. It's hard to tell by the pictures but the dreads are actually fairly tight and solid there is just a lot of loose hair surrounding them. I'll try to add another photo to show you. Is there anything I can do about that? I'm not gonna wear beads so any other recommendations please let me know.

And yes it really does get tangled that fast but unfortunately doesn't dread quickly.

Is the Handmade Organic Lock Magic Locking Gel from dreadlockshampoo.com a good option? Has anyone used it and can recommend it?

Dread seperation advice


Dread Maintenance

Hey,

I've been dreading my hair for almost two years now completely neglect, no backcomb crocheting or anything like that. I've only used Dr. Bronner's soap, occasional BS/ACV wash, and soap from dreadlockshampoo.com.

Progress has been quite slow which is fine, but since my hair is very curly my dreads keep dreading into each other. If I don't separate them everyday they become so intertwined that it's almost impossible to separate. All my baby dreads are fairly large by now and I don't want them to congo.

Any advice or separation tips? I also have a lot of loose hair on the outside of my dreads so any tips for that as well would be welcome.I understand that time is the ultimate cure for loose hair but it has been two years and they are still fairly loose and not totally looking like dreads so please help me out if you can.

I put some photos below.

Cheers.

After 1 year and 5 months of neglect with no dreads yet I finally decided to make a profile


Introduce Yourself

Thanks for the advice,

Obviously time is the only real solution just wanted some tips and wondering if my hair looked too dry or too oily.

I'll try the sea salt spray and I'll definitely be swimming in the ocean.

Not really one to wear beads in my hair, but thanks.

Hello,

So I have been trying to grow dreads for over a year and 5 months now. There is some knotting but not a great deal. I thought I would finally ask for help from this site.

I used organic bar soap every 2-3 days for the first 2 months, then I used Dr. Bronners soap every 2-3 days (diluted and soft water) for the next 6 months, I found it left my hair sticky until it dried. Then I used bc and acv wash for the next 6 months. For the past 3 months I have been using the Dragon's Blood shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com.

I'll post some recent pics, please give me any suggestions based on the pics.
