Before I get started


General Talk

Pink Ninja:
Questions
1. When showering but not washing your dreads do you put them up or in a cap so they don’t get wet?
2. When doing the neglect do I need to put my hair up when sleeping?
3. Do I need to palm roll the neglected dreads?
4. Do I leave my new growth and let it do it’s own thing?
5. When doing the neglect do I wash my hair when I feel it needs it instead of everyday or every other day?
6. Now for the oil does it matter if I use it straight oil and massage the scalp or can I make spray or do both?
7. Do you use oil everyday or once a week?
8. Do you use the refresh spray everyday or as you need?
9. What happens if I get my dreads wet?

My answers:

1. If I am not going to wash my hair, I let my hair get wet. 

2. You do not have to put your hair up. I drape the length of my hair over the back of my pillow so that I do not lay down it.

3. No. Just pull your sections of hair away from each other.

4. New growth comes out of your scalp and will do it's own thing anyway. The formation of a dreadlock depends on your natural hair growth cycle and new tangles.  Seriously a dreadlock can be made with as few as four or five individual hair follicles. In some social circles... thanks to all of the tangles created by the wind, sections of "Wind blown" hair is a dreadlock.

5. Just wash your hair on a regular basis.

If you wish, you can wash less often and your scalp will gradually produce less sebum(oil). You can start washing your hair less often with washing your hair every other day. The "Baking soda and water" mixture will remove some excess oil on days you do not wash your hair and later become the base of a "Shampoo" and "Conditioner."

6. I do not use oils except for a "carrier oil" and the essentials oils in the "shampoo" I mix together. I wash my hair at least twice week.

7. No. (See answer 6)

8. No. (See answer 6)

9. Your hair gets wet when your dreadlocks get wet.  Drying dreadlocks is not difficult... Just wring out excess water and let your hair dry. If you are in a rush, towel drying or blow drying will help.

Shampoo Questions


Dread Products

Granted I wash my hair two or three times per week. I alternate between the old baking soda "Shampoo" and the liquid Dreadlocks shampoo made by Buck's County Soap Shop

Help! Halfling dreads and a photoshoot in 10 days!


Dread Maintenance

In addition to what SoaringEagle stated.

No one can beat you at being yourself.

Just be yourself your dreadlocks will become just an ever changing accessory to your entire being that no one will ever have.

Reintroduction, since I haven't been around in long while.

My profile on this site has a lot information on me in it. Feel free to ask me any question you may have. Feel free to send a friend request on facebook if you wish to do so and please, send me a message to let me know that you are from this website.

I have been with this site since, January 2010 and I have been on my own dreadlock journey since my last buzz cut in the summer of 2006. My dreadlocks didn't offically start forming until 2010 after a lot of the baby dreadlocks I had formed with twist rip unraveled and nature took over. These days I have at least 100 dreadlocks and most of them are thinner than a quarter of inch(6mm)

Other than the pictures I have already put in my profile I don't have very many pictures of my dreadlocks.

I typically log on every now and then to see what all has changed, if anything. SoaringEagle usually has most of the questions answered sufficiently.

5 MONTH UPDATE WITH VIDEO - CURLY HAIR - HISPANIC TIMELINE


Dreading Methods

Awesome! I am surprised at how fast curly hair becomes dreadlocks. My super fine textured and straight hair takes it's time.

Is it ok to dye your dreads?


General Questions

Sure it is okay to dye your dreadlocks. In the long run it is still your hair.If you want the hair dye to penetrate deeper into the lock, you need to use more dye. Otherwise just dye your hair as you would with standard methods.As Soaring Eagle mentioned don't use baking soda and acv if you want the color to last.

Locking at Root...its been 2 years still hasn't happened


General Talk

Since your hair grows out starting at the roots, your roots won't lock.
