Couldn't stay away


Dreading Methods

I used to frequent this site often a couple years ago and I actually let my hair start locking naturally for about two months and they progressed quickly. The thing is that I wasn't ready for the freeform look. My hair was 2.5 years long then and it was easy to do. Since then I shaved my head and beard completely. That was nine months ago and I've just let them both grow without any cutting (trimmed my mustache once.) I've always washed with Castile soap because it's healthier for my hair even without locks but now I'm wondering how long my hair should have to be before I completely let it start locking again. I'll attach some pictures of my hair length at this point in time and hope for some feedback, thanks guys.

Nature's Gate Organics Shampoo?


Dread Maintenance

I've been washing with the baking soda rinse thing for about a month now and it hasn't been bad, my hair is still a little oily near the roots but it's not that big of a deal. I just feel like having something that I can just grab whenever I need it y'know?and how will it affect my hair if it does have residue in it?

Yeah I'm not sure if I should use it because it doesn't have sls but I don't know what else I'm supposed to look for exactly.

Nature's Gate Organics Shampoo?


Dread Maintenance

Does any Nature's Gate work? I have the lemongrass one and you're going natural right?Radha Das said:
I use them and they are great. I use the Herbal one. Another great shampoo is by . It is called something like Scalp Remedy or something like that. I use it once a week and the other days I use the Nature's Gate. The Aveda is great if you feel the need to calm your scalp. I use the Aveda Scalp Conditioner once a month.

To congo or not to congo?


General Questions

So I have this dread that's getting bigger and bigger, I'm three weeks into natural dreading by the way, it's not obnoxiously big but it is getting pretty big. I don't know if I should let it congo just because that's what it wants to do anyway or if I should keep them seperate.What do you guys think?

Is my hair too short for dreads?


General Talk

If you do natural dreads, start now, while your hair is short. That way it'll get all knotty soon and start growing that way by itself.

Is my hair too short for dreads?


General Talk

That's probably part of why your hair won't dread.Contrary to popular belief, dirty hair is not good for dreading, nice clean hair dreads faster.Ask yourself this, "do I run my fingers through my hair? do I brush/comb my hair?"If you answered yes to either of those questions, that's probably why your hair doesn't dread naturally.The process for natural dreading, keep your hair clean with a non-residue shampoo and stop touching it, at all. Don't run your fingers through your hair, pull the knots apart or anything, just let it be. Get a dread tam and put all of your hair in there and eventually, you'll have beautiful all natural dreads.
