you seem like your bragging or something like its cool...lol dude when you get outta high school those labels will no longer exist and you will jus be some guy that played sports in high school and most likely everyone else will be moving on with there life..so yea dont get dreads you will lose your precious popularity

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap: Oily residue?


Dread Products

i use the tea tree kind and a few others and ive never had this problem...im not sure as too what is causing it....since this was the first time you used it, it could be dried scalp and other build-up from a previous time that was broken up by tha dr.bronners but you failed to wash it out completely...i don't even dillute mine and ive never had this occur...the oils def. aren't residues, i know that for sure! but next time try jus rinsing a bit better....try submerging your head in a bath of water to get the first of it out then after that try rinsing it out with the shower and this may help....im pretty sure that the dr.bronners help clean your scalp much better and removed all your dead skin and build up but you jus didn't wash it out completely...keep using it and jus try to rinse better cause honestly ive tried many different kinds of shampoos for my locks and nothing comes close to dr. bronners

looking for some pointers on starting growing dreads and starting my journey.


General Questions

i would say order some dr. bronners online....you have to atleast get 20 bucks worth of stuff but the shipping is free, and with 20 worth of dr. bronners you wont need to buy anymore shampoo for atleast half a year....ive used all of them except for a couple and i would say the best for dreads is the tea tree kind....peppermint and lavender are also good...so yea its gonna cost ya 20 bucks but its worth it because once you get it you wont have to worry bout shampoo for a long long time

Dread Maintenance

I dont know homie about that homie....breaking hair=bad, so i would still say it is badMatthew said:

i know you posted this a while back but i have to comment on it. Im about at month 7 of my journey and i crocheted the first 3 months and yea crocheting is a bad mistake!!! i promise you this!! i am finding, from freeforming for the past four months that all the broken hair caused by the crochet hook is starting to be forced out of dreads by the new growth...which sux...you don't want that to happen....so because i crocheted i have massive loose hair (which i don't have a problem with loose hair) but this is loose hair thats is broken and not even connected to my head...why would you want something like that to happen...when done naturally hair is never broken and detached from your scalp...i mean maybe its alright to crochet once but never continue to maintain them....and another thing..it has taken 4 months since a crochet hook touched my head for my locks to actually start to look "matted" and not "woven"....i used a .7 mm crochet hook so it was small..but it still broken thousands of strainds of hair which im a regretedly now having to deal with....im not speaking out my ass im speaking from experience...i have uploaded videos on my page since my week 16 as well as a vid from week one so you know im not lying....CROCHETING IS BAD!!

very not true. small diameter crochet hook slide past hair not break them. easier for to go next to hair and not break law of newton. crochet used to pull loose hair for into bottom of lock so hair start to grow for dreadlock. crochet not use to pull hair into dreadlock part already dreadlock because not hair for to do this. I do not understand logic of this soaringeagle. People also I know with dreadlock use crochet to make loose hair into dreadlock not have problem. No respect but have you use crochet?

ok u were smart enough to barely do it

the problem is most ppl do it every week or every 2 weeks
everytime u push any metal object through a dread u break hairs
the strength of a dread (or rope) comes from the length of the in tact fibers thats why hemp is so much stronger then cotton
so every broken hair that shortens fibers (hairs) weakens them somewhat
dreaking a few now and then wont be too bad
but
if u break hundreds a week every week year after year the average length of in tact hairs can be pretty short making the dread very weak


your use was smart..youd be better off never using it but at least you did minumal harm
not like those who for 14 hours a week every week crocheting
