Crochet Hook


Dread Maintenance

Hello!

I'm three years into the natural dreading process and I was wondering if I should be using a crochet hook to tidy them up?

I'm not even sure how I would use it so any advice would be lovely :)

Naturally occurring dreadlocks a concept difficult to grasp


General Talk

Yeah i let a guy id only just met smell my hair because he wanted to know if they smelt and he was confused because i didn't use 'normal' shampoo and he was genuinely surprised they didn't stink. Though i get a little joy out of peoples confusion andcriticizing:D it's my hair at the end of the day, i grew it so i'll do what i please :)

That's great advice :D thanks so much for taking the time to write! I will def wash twice a week now, i was always worried washing too much would loosen them but no more worrying. Yeah, looking into getting some beads big enough. Thanks again <3 xx

Help! Save My Dreads

For the first year and a bit i used BS, ACV and oils but my hair colour was looking very faded so my sister bought me knotty dread shampoo but i only used it for a few months because it made my hair really greasy and more recently i started using dr bronners peppermint soap. I wash my hair once a week. I put it up in a towel after washing for a bit then let it air dry. I live in the highlands in scotland so not much sun here to let it dry in any natural heat and if i need to go to work il give it a run over with a hairdryer then i have to put it up. Usually though il wash it on a day off so i can leave it to dry all day. Its only the ends of my dreads that im having problems with though, (except not sure if its relevant but i do have problems with dandruff and my scalp occasionally gets itchy ?! ).

Hmm iv never noticed a smell when iv washed them but yesterday i was getting tweezers into a paddle and i sniffed it and it didn't smell like roses. It wasn't awful but I haven't noticed this smell before? :/

Nope been natural since day one :/ i try using tweezers to get a lot of it but its tricky. The dirty feel is what puts me off more than the lint. Maybe i should soak my hair instead of just washing it in the shower, might make it a bit cleaner.

I posted a couple of days ago about lint and paddles. I decided to chop a paddle off and as i feared my dreads are full of lint. When I pulled the hair apart from the bit i chopped off its stuffed with bits of lint and it almost has a tacky/sticky feel to it. Its the same in all the loops and bumps in my dreads :( Should i just start shampooing my hair to loosen them all off and give them a good clean then start again?! I'm just sad that i've gone this far down the line to be thinking of starting over...

General Questions

Thanks guys, im not sure where all the lint comes from, i do wear a lot of woollen jumpers and hats but no more than most people here i guess :/ i'll maybe just dye my hair. I've tried wrapping threads around em for controlling the loops but never actually threaded it through them which may be a plan :D xxxxx
