super clean dreads (safe for baby locks too)


Dread Maintenance

Many months ago, I was advised via this forum not to bother using ACV until I couldn't stand the itchiness anymore. Well, I've been neglecting and using BS/Tea Tree/Lavender/Rosemary/Peppermint Oils since May 2010, and I still haven't got to that point that I couldn't stand it. What do you make of this? Should I start using ACV anyways?

What are your reasons for not growing a beard?


General Questions

I never clean shave, either. Ienjoy wearing a 'stache and/or beard, but when it gets too long it does look rather 'primitive'...

Regarding tams..


Dreading Methods

My job is similar in that I sometimes have to wear a helmet/hardhat. I think you're looking for something very thin to keep your hair out of your way. A bandana works pretty well for this, but I prefer a product called the Buff. The merino wool ones are especially comfy :)

Trouble with the roots of super fine baby dreads


Dreading Methods

I play football (soccer if you're American) up to 5 nights a week, and the other nights I run, swim or lift. I'll spare you the details, but I sweat a LOT, especially when I play soccer, necessitating daily bathingPaula said:
sea salt spray should be about a tablespoon per spray bottle the size of a regular water bottle. I havent used it in a while but when I did, I would spray right after I wash. Then let it dry and it wouldn't be removed till my next wash(1-2 days). Though for some prefer to spray it on 1-2 hours before washing the dreads.

And you want to try to spray only on the dreads and avoid the scalp as much as possible or it can get too dry and itchy, or get irritated by the salt.


Matt-
Why do you have to wash every day?

hey paula, if you would be so kind as to give me some advice on the salt water. what measurments should I use, and when I apply it how long can it stay on? can I put it on at like 8 o'clock PM and wash my hair the next day at 11 AM, or is that too long?

does dread head hq shampoo ruin dreads, or does it do what it says it does?


Dread Maintenance

It's not too bad. 95% of the time I use baking soda, but I'll use the shampoo when I find it convenient (eg when I'm in a hurry, traveling, etc.)Once I use it up I certainly wont buy it again.DirtyJohnny sucks the big 1

DIY Infused oils and teas for hair, skin and medicine :)


Dread Maintenance

Yarrow is also a coagulant. If you ever have uncontrolled bleeding at high altitude, yarrow can be a life-saver.soaringeagle said:
when im high up on the mountains where the airs real thin and u start suffering from altitude sickness therers a plant that grows right where its needed above 10,000 feet called osha you just dig up the roots rince em off and chew on em its a strong taste but i like it when u chew em you kinda make a "mouth tea" as it releases the medicine which mixes with saliva
chewing just a lil bit will help u breathe better and absorb oxygen better and if u do it long enough while at that altitude your lungs actualy get 20-25% bigger to compensate.
u can also make a tincture and just adds to your water for a slow steady booster dose
yarrow also grows at that altitude and acts much the same from what i hear just never tried it cause liked osha so much
