dandruff shampoo


Introduce Yourself

Definitely follow up with ACV. Then finish off with a cold rinse dandruff is just dryness of the scalp and when washing your scalp with hot water it will make the problem worse. Try to wash every two days and use cold water. I rinse my scalp everyday because I am a workoutaholic lol. I just do a quick rinse in the shower after every work out and wash my dreads with shampoo. I do the bs/acv twice a month just to get that extra junk out, honestly I am amazed that the bs/acv rinse is not grotesque. Just do the cold water and it should help immensely.

Nurses with natural dreads?


dreads jobs employment issues

Start them while classes are going on becasue instructors might give you a little crap on them but, if they are a bit mature in time for clinicals you can just tie them back etc..

Nurses with natural dreads?


dreads jobs employment issues

Nurse with dreads Here... Tie them back at work you do not want nasty stuff in them depending on where you work a hospital for example. If you can wear a disposable surgical caps that is great or even a tam that match your scrubs. I worked at a hospital but, did not have dreads yet. I asked my boss if dreads where ok she said no, so I quit found a job with a home health agency and the are totally cool on my dreads my boss loves them since I keep them well maintained. My eldery patients get a kick out of them. I say be a great nurse and your apperience should matter the least. My new boss asked how I keep them so nice, clean and well tammed I mentioned to her that I use aloe vera and she gave me some aloe vera plants for my birthday (diffrent sizes and types I even have one little one in my room) that is the sweetest lady ever. Always ask before if it is ok do not just go ahead and do it then you can get in trouble with your manager. Hope this helps :)

itchy


Introduce Yourself

Try some antiseptic or astringent it worked for me. The one I am talking about is the one used to clean your face with a piece of cotton found anywhere. It worked great I just left it in till next wash. I use it very once in awhile.

is it ok to get my hair wet every day if i want natural dreadlocks?


General Questions

My locks are at a very early stage and locking pretty well the first two month I would just wash when needed. Now I wet them almost every day to get sweat out of my scalp. I wet them with plain water everyday and wash with acv and sea salt one day then another day I will do the bs with lemon juice in it. I do not see an issue with you getting your hair wet often just do it under low pressure in the shower high pressure will just slip the knots out of your hair. For now just let it be wild and free :) wait for them to establish a bit before you wet them every day.

General Questions

My dreads are a little over 3 months old. Are still in a premature state but, looking very good. I wash them every two days some times everyday depending on how much I sweat or just run some water thru them in the shower. Do not think that putting water in them has much to do with them progressing or not. I wrap them in a tee shirt after a shower so the tee can soak up excess water. Then I just leave them alone to dry on their own. Try some hair wraps they will speed up the process. Also if you wet them to much you are pulling out oils that are needed for them to dread.

ANY1 W DREADS OLDER THAN 2 YS STILL HAVE WAX??


Help! Save My Dreads

It all depends on the type of wax you used. I started my dreads with a firm locking wax then found this site and stopped using wax all together. How I got the wax out was a difficult task. Use the blow drier and paper towels use the good kind because they do not leave lint behind and are more absorbent blow dry your dreads one by one and use the paper towel to absorb as much wax as possible. Do a hot wash and do an acv/bs wash just keep on doing the hot water washes and hope for the best. Good luck!!!

Dreads have been misbehavin.


General Questions

Valerie,

Thank you so much for your input, Today I washed my hair with the bs/acv rinse myhair feels awsome.I don't use the salt water mix muchbecause it makes my scalp itchy. I have done ita few timesto dry them up a bit then I wash it out once its dry. I work out and sweat alot so at times I just take a shower and let water run thru them without using any shampoo but, do not put water in them every day.Inoticed that my hair naturally parts down the middle and when I had them backcomed the person did them so I wouldn't have the part and two of them mademe feel a bit awkward and un natural.SoI just went ahead and made the part seperated what had to be. I am just going to let them be anddo as they wish my most of em are looking very nice some in the lower back part of my head area bitcrazy (aren't we all just a bit crazy). I am not going to worry so much on how they look any more. How often should I do the bs/acvrinse?

Once again thank you your information has been very helpful. This is a great site.
