Don't look!


Dreading Methods

I wore the tam because despite having pretty curly hair (some would call it kinky), the center of my head wasn't dreading. So I read on here that wearing a tam and using sea salt spray once in a while would help and they worked so I kept doing it. If I don't need to wear the tam every night then I'll stop doing it.

Dreading Methods

Is it okay if you only wear a tam to bed? That's what I've been doing for the past few months and I don't wear it if I shampooed my hair.

dreading the 1st few weeks of dreading


Dreading Methods

It's hard to resist looking in the mirror, especially when there's one in your bathroom attached to the wall. I don't really freak out over my locs anymore (unless if my brother touches them I f'n hate that) but sometimes I'll give into temptation and I have to start consciously reminding myself that its a journey be patient and relax. Reading this post again has been very encouraging, especially for someone stuck in the 'burbs where everyone apparently has to look "professional" (i.e have appropriate dress code by capital's standards).

Baking Soda and Sea Salt ratios


Dread Maintenance

What I do is I rinse my hair on the hottest setting available on the faucet to my shower. I keep rinsing at that temperature, only lowering when it gets too hot for me to handle. After about 10-30 mins, it should all come out. If necessary, seperate your locks in the water so it can get to those hard to reach places and massage your scalp. Then, either rinse your hair with cold water, or do the ACV/White vinegar rinse (immediately rinse after if you have new dreads or wait for a few minutes if they're old) with cold water. That's worked for me. My hair may not be the same texture as yours so adjust as necessary.

Ha ha don't know what happened to my follow up post so heres another one!

Followed the recipe down to a tea!

It felt all nice a tingly to start with. And clean but on closer inspection the soapy resudie dandruff is still on my scalp and base of dread, so much so they look a lil white near the roots. Feels soapy still?? is this the effect of using the Lush bar for a over a month and will take a few BS/ ACV washes to break it down??

Thanks

Help with shampoo!! dry locks and nut allergy :(


Dread Maintenance

I have a nut allergy too and I'm not sure exactly what kind of nuts you're allergic to but coconuts are not really nuts. They're the seeds of the coconut palm. So you're probably fine.

Why is the community here so against maintained locs?


Dreading Methods

Those locs look fine, speaking as a woman.

However, there's this guy. His locs are beautiful.

If you're going to college, believe me. The people who matter won't care about how your hair looks. All they care about is whether you're attending class, sitting through their lectures, and getting good grades. You could show up in PJs and most professors won't notice or care.

dread tea


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

My place is very small and my landlord is cheap. I just wanted a tea that would make it easier to get out lint.

dread tea


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I would like to use one that would keep lint out of my hair. Not now, but in the future. Also, if you don't have a teapot, can you use the microwave?

An idea I'd like to try with the baking soda wash


Dread Maintenance

I liked doing it this way. If I can find a spare spray bottle or buy one for cheap, I'll try that way and report back on which worked better. Might even take a few pictures too.
