YES you can comb out mature dreads without knotty boy!


General Talk

For anyone who wants to start over, wants or needs to remove your dreads. Lets face it -- sometimes even the best journeys end, or life throws you an ultimatem.

Let me help educate those who think you have to cut your hair really short or shave, or that you need expensive stuff to do it.

I can prove it! YOUDONOT NEED KNOTTY BOY TO HELP YOUUNDREAD.

Hello fellow dreadmates. After almost 2 years.. My 2nd dreadlockjourney is ended. I wanted to share my details of this experience and how I removed my dreads carefully and safely without needing expensive crapor the unnecessary knotty boy kitor totally shaving.

How to combine dreads?


Dreading Methods

I wouldn't use rubber bands, they can melt and break the dread. Some people have had good luck and only lost the rubber bands, but many if you search online have had major dread losses. Thread is better. GL!

well if u cant stop seperating the ones you want to connect i would do the hemp thing that worked really well for me. i did all my dreads in hemp back when they were babies. beads also help but beads only cover a small area so it depends on what kind of effect your going for. good luck. oh with rubberbands though i put a few in mine when i started like 4 yrs ago and last year i found a rubberband stuck inside of one of my dreads and i had to try to dig it out cuz it was getting eaten by my dread so if u use rubberbands just keep track of em. lol i mean it didnt hurt anything and im sure i could have just left it but i persoanlly didnt like the look of it so i pulled it out.

I have questions about dreadwax - yes, I'm really asking this here lol


Dread Products

My first set of dreads were backcombed in 2008 and caked with knotty boy dread wax and rubber bands. Thank goodness I figured out that both the wax and rubber bands were reeeeeaallllly bad sooner than later. I combed them out quicky but had greasy wax soaked hair that took a lot of washing and combing to get the wax residue out.Wax free here now, thank you very much! I can't tell someone not to sell or market a product, but whats wrong with the world now is that people are too dishonest anymore just to earn a buck. How would you feel if someone sold some junk to you making you believe that YOU NEED IT and that ruined your hair?Just be real with people.. Just sayin. It will take us all farther.(Sorry guys for joining the convo late- I had a baby so that makes my absence forgiven right?)

Misunderstanding of loose roots maintenance? Help!


Dread Maintenance

It looks like you got some good advice, just wanted to say I agree with everyone else, don't do that.. It isn't helpful. Leave them alone, let them do their thing! Good Luck!

Hair loss and dread killa...BaKing Soda and ACV


Dread Maintenance

When in the baby stages, the less you do the better. Some people have had reactions and burns to essential oils, and some essential oils aren't for everyone. Allergic reactions can look like burns or hair loss. I would remove the essential oils, and only use a mild ACV BS wash routine. Honestly maybe even do BS every other wash or every 3 washes instead of each time. Be very gentle and let your hair alone. Try adding a multivitamin to your diet if you aren't already on one, to help nourish your body and scalp preventing hair loss from your diet. Hang in there! Don't panic!Good Luck!

How to combine dreads?


Dreading Methods

In my experience, from what I have noticed is that often T&R dreads will shrink and fatten as they knot. So maybe yours wont be as thin as you think.You could crochet them together, but a bead on them, sew them with their own loose hairs, wrap them, or just let them eat each other over time. I combined some that were really mature using a crochet hook and sewing needle along with some hemp thread.

General Talk

Aura Cacia brand I believe is good too, and I trust it. I buy their brand all the time at Greenlife or Earth Fare natural health stores. Almost all of my EO are Aura Cacia brand.
