essential oils for dreads and scalp health


Dread Products

some of them are used with a carrier oil, like the coconut oil and then to be left on and then you can rinse or shampoo out. If you are having serious hair or scalp issues, I recommend leaving the essential oils on for a while. The coconut oil would be good b/c it causes the essential oil to stay put longer than if you just usedthem diluted with water. I hope this helps too.

essential oil spray question.


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Most are just fine. You could have a sensitivity but that is fairly rare. That is why I use therapeutic grade oils. I don't recommend aromatherapy grade oils as they contain chemicals and solvents. (Young Living oils or Mountain Rose Herbs) I will rinse with the oils (with water) but i don't completely wash it out.

essential oil spray question.


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I am writing up a page for the site on essential oils. It doesn't sound like you have any problems so I'll give you some info for general. I hope this helps. Clary Sage is good for the hair follicles. Lavender balances pH. Rosemary is a bit of a conditioner so not sure if you want or need this. Lemon is good. Lemon juice is drying to the hair. but lemon oil assists for scaly, itchy scalp. I think you have a nice blend already. If no problems, I think that you choose what smells good for you. Personally I sometimes use pure Witch Hazel as a carrier for the oils for a spray. Also, Sage is good for hair follicle by assisting with nutrients to the hair shaft. Eating foods with Sulfur as Sulfur maintains strength of hair. Hope this helps.

Thank you. I was having a few days of being unhappy. My dreads went loose, lots of flyaways and elongated. I was feeling the impatience and disappointed. Seeing all the wonderful stages of dreads has be re-energized to keep going. :)

Dreads Accessorizing question


Dread Accessories

How soon to start putting beads, threads, etc. in dreads? Mine are still "babies" and only 5 months along. There are some absolutely formed dreads so wondering if in the beginning is it a good thing or not such a good thing to accessorize. Peace and Love, Arden

Introduce Yourself

I know how you feel. Started with backcombing. Now there's some TNR. Some stay in. Some fall out. It does TRY my patience. And no one in my world supports my dreads. Or should I say, crazy, bed hair! haha! I've had people say, ugly hair cut it off, etc. You name it. I would never tell someone what to do with THEIR hair! I am hanging in there only by a hair! ha. This site I have to read it frequently to stay patient and keep going. :):) Thankyou Soaring Eagle.
