Need urgent help about shampoo


Dread Products

Thanks again! I think i'll have to stick with bs. I have to wash everyday because it doesn't remove all of my dead skin... Usually a use 100 grams of baking soda to 8 cups of water. I'll try tomorrow washing with 200 grams of baking soda to 10 cups of water. I hope it'll work

I have hard water :(. Do you know if the bars works better on hard water? I can import it, it is far less expensive than the amazing dreadlockshampoo would cost me, but alsk would take an eternity to arrive

Need urgent help about shampoo


Dread Products

Hi all! I'm back, neglecting again. I'm in less than one week neglecting.

So here is my case:

Bs/acv doesn't work for me. Didn't worked on the last set also. If i wash with bs/acv, even with oils, by the end of the day i get giant flakes of dead skin stuck on my hair and scalp. Doesn't matter the water temperature and pressure of the shower. The only thing that worked for me was the dreadlockshampoo bar and liquid, but there is no way that i can buy it anytime soon, it is so expensive, and my country is on a financial crisis, so buying it would be more than half of my salary, and that's a lot of money.

It is really hard to find any kind of residue free shampoo here, but i found only one local store who sells Dr. Bronner's (they only have the almond castile and hemp green tea, both liquid).

What i want to know, are these soaps good? Will it condition my hair too much even if i dilute it? What if i put a bit of sea salt on the shampoo?

I'm desperate with my scalp feeling like hell again.

I appreciate your ideas on my casd

My 2nd set of Natural Dreadlocks


Member Journals and Timelines

yeah, the progress i have now in 4 days was what i had on almost 4 months of my previous set. I'm really amazed! And again, thank you so much for this site, and for the videos on youtube [you taught me how to have dreadlocks on a comment of one of your videos 2 years ago, and then i found dreadlockssite].

My 2nd set of Natural Dreadlocks


Member Journals and Timelines

Hi people! I'm making this timeline to document the progress of my second journey of natty dreads...

So... My hair is thick, i think it is a bit straight [none of my parents have curly hair, my father haves wavy hair and my mother haves straight hair], but it makes waves when combed, and it curls when neglected.

I'm washed on day 1, and day 3, i plan to wash 3 times a week, i'm using a vegan residue free dreadlock shampoo bar that i bought here on Brazil [as it is far cheaper than importing from Vicki's as Brazil customs sucks, also the girl who make the bars have NEGLECT dreadlocks with straight hair, so she knows what she is doing, and i'm paying only what is equal to $2,50], and i'm using a spray with a solution of magnesium hydroxide, lavender and lemon-grass oil which works for itches, and to heal scalp wounds fast.

So, let's go to the pictures!

Just before embracing the journey again:

-

4 days of neglect -I'm really happy with the progress, i'm progressing faster than in my last set [that you can check herethe timeline]. What sucks is that some sections are sticking up, it didn't happened on my previous set, but i think this is a sign of fast progress.

Introducing myself!


Introduce Yourself

Hi people! I have been wandering in this community for 2 years, most of you knows me but i never introduced myself.

My name is Diego, i'm brazilian, i love punk rock and hardcore music, i have thick wavy/curly hair [but the texture is somewhat smooth] and i'm back to dreadlockssite!

I've learned a lot here [and by experience too], and i'm really grateful, i had neglect dreadlocks for 18 months [Jun 2012 to Dec 2013], and that journey to me was the best thing that ever happened to me in my whole life, as i have a history of severe depression on my life, but i've learned how to be patient and to love myself before anything, and this lesson will be with me forever.

My last set rocked a lot [my timelinehttps://neglectdreadlocks.imgur.com], but i had to cut it on December, because i wanted thin dreads, but on the back of my head they were joining a lot. Since October i recurred to SCISSORS to separate the dreads because it were almost IMPOSSIBLE to separate with my fingers, and when i tried it broke a lot of hair anyways... If i kept separating them i would broke my dreads, so i decided to cut them, wait my hair grow a little bit and start a new set. I remember that i lost almost the first five months of the journey, because on the first month i washed with only plain water, i had mild psoriasis, and i never separated before the fifth month. On the fifth month i separated almost all sections...

Now on this set i think that i'll not do mistakes like i did on the previous set... Now i know that i should separate early, or at least check the sections and roots, wash with something that will clean my hair and don't touch it so much [on my previous set my hands were on my hair at least 3 entire hours a day]...

I've been growing my hair since December, my hair naturally grows really fast, and now i'll start taking biotin to grow even faster...

I planned to wait until December to neglect my hair, but these days i accidentally forgot to comb my hair, it were less than 4 days, and what i saw was like my hair on the 3rd month of my previous set...

Now i decided that... from TODAY i'll consider that i'm neglecting my hair again.

Wish me good vibes for this new set, and thanks to SE, and to all people here in this community, this is a heaven of knowledge and experience, and if it weren't this site, i would never know that dreads can grow naturally.

Peace out!
