Five months in and no hairline dread-action


Dreading Methods

So given my heritage i admit it is a tad disappointing to have to post this, but be that is it may i will, lol. I am like five months in now and the front of my hairline in the very front still hasn't dreaded. It is tangled sure, but certaintly not like the rest of my head. Increasing or decreasing washing hasnt seemed to help nor hinder it. I almost wonder if perhaps the shampoos that i use, though excellent for hair lacking moisture, are in fact "too moisturizing" but then again if they were, the rest of my head would not have made such excellent progress.

Im not sure what else to do at this point. Tips? Particularly for Halfrican hair?

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I myself dont go longer then three days. I met a cat with dreads down at the bar who claimed when he started his he didnt wash them for six months. Nasty.

white people with dreadlocks


History and Religious Significance

Give it time i think the idea of american caucasions with dreadlocks in societyis still kinda in its infant stage so to speak. It will become more socially acceptable i am sure. Then it will not be seen as necessarily a "black thing" but a "human thing".

Why Dreadlocks?


General Talk

I just wanted long hair that didnt look sissified like braids can tend to look on men. I would be a first in the males in my family to actually have long hair. I cant claim any spiritual reason for wanting them; but another reason they appealed is due to their relatively care-free nature. I got tired of spending 45$ bucks or morea month on cornrows and clean edges. Oh and cause i intend to be a lenny kravitz impersonator when they get longer. Just kidding. Those are my reasons anyways.

should i increase my washing?


Dread Maintenance

Yea twice a day is too much, but your friend i think has the right basic idea. Shampooing tends to be a process that strips your hair and scalp of natural oils, causing it to dry out which aids in tangling. Hell like i have said in other posts i experimented washing my hair 5 days a week for two weeks a while back and i had some nice lookin lil phatties at tha end of it. But..i also over-dried out my scalp from lack of hot oil treatment, so watch that.

Aloe Vera Gel on african type hair=fail


Dreading Methods

Yea i hear ya bruh i think ill do that actually. I just got a thing of moroccan oil that i combined with jojoba oilwhich i expect will be a real legitimate combination.

tha tron said:
If u have African texture hair you need to moisturize your hair properly with oils that can be absorbed easily, try a mixure of extra virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, and sweet almond oil. Everyone has a problem dread that isn't up to speed with the rest. But I hate to see you using aloe I don't think that's an adequate Moisturizer for our hair type. Just do what se said put a bead over it and leave it alone, stop obsessive over it itll be fine. It won't stay that way forever

I think you got that right tho i prolly over did it cause i added a little more and more when i noticed it wasnt saying together. Ill try using less perhaps. Hey and like you said SE i can always just wait for it to do its thing..just kinda bothersome cause other then an area on the front hairline its the only place left that hasnt decided to dread fully. Oh well, all things in good time right.
