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.

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.

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.

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.

That happened to me as well and just ended up using virgin coconut oil, and that ended up holding my hair pretty good. the aloe made my hair softer and did not hold.

wax not so bad?


Dreading Methods

Another thing is this sites soap box is condoning safe and effective methods for getting dreadlocks. Not using wax is one of those methods. There are plenty of sites that tell you wax is the best and that those of us on this site all look like cavemen/nasty looking dreads. This site is different though, and that is why i joined. There is nothing wrong with sharing your thoughts on the use of wax certaintly, but wondering why folks are posting against its use, on a website that condones natural locks without waxseems..counter-productive as well. We are still glad to have you as a member though dont get me wrong.

Aloe Vera Gel on african type hair=fail


Dreading Methods

So i was a little disappointed to learn that the Aloe Vera i bought did not work on my hair as intended. The reason i used it is because at the crown of my head i have a small area of hair that has refused to dread as thoroughly as the rest of it. So i tookt he gel and tried twisted them into proper sections. Unfortunately these sections i twisted came unraveled within five minutes. I tried the gel on some of my other nicely dreaded sections however, and it did make them look much more uniform and tame the ends a bit.

So now i am looking for ideas for how to get this troublesome area to dread. Thats why i mentioned in a previous post the possibility of using a rubberband on each aloe vera twisted sections.

I dunno with my nappfrican hair i was tired of the pomades from rocking waves, which makes ya hair just nasty if you think about it. So obviously once it grew out adding wax to a already thick bushy set of hair would likely have been detrimental. No thanks from me.

Campfire smoke


Dread Maintenance

I wondered the same thing about campfire smoke. Being around it i would think would tend to dry your hair out, which can be beneficial in aiding the locking process i think.
