Cause of thinning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

I started with the bars and never switched. I don't know what made me buy the bars over the liquid but yes I have been using the bars for a while now. And I see what you mean, those ends were probably damaged already from when I did the bs/acv wash last year, and it was just time for them to fall. 

 Yep I'd say the sections that fell off were between 2-2 1/2 inches.

Cause of thinning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

As I was about to comment on how I was going to keep you updated, I checked the area that was thinning and noticed it already fell off! haha Guess it happened over night. Not that worried though, as only it was those two that were doing that, the rest seem to be alright. When and if that happens again I'll now know what to do :P

Cause of thinning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

   Well dang I completely forgot about the bs/acv! OF COURSE!! Yes I used it from Jan 2016 to Jun/July 2016. Around 6 months. July is when I switched to the shampoo bars from Vicky and haven't used anything else since. But why now? Wouldn't the breakage occur during the time I used the bs/acv wash, not half a year later? 

   I don't tie them up with bands, but I do hold them all back frequently by tying them all using 2 dreads from behind my head, and I don't leave them really tight either, just enough to hold them in place.

 But I'll take your advice and put the 'cast' on! Thanks for the advice Soaring Eagle! Does it have to be something specific though?

Cause of thinning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

1st Picture: I'm wondering why this happened? Really bummed out when I realized it was thinning. Few days ago I tried finding it again but realized it fell out. It's already a small dreadlock, so my guess is that it wasn't holding on to too much hairs? 

2nd Picture: Found another one that's similar to the one that fell off. The area where I'm pointing is where it's thinning, feels like it's barely hanging on.

   The rest of my dreadlocks seem to be doing fine. It's just these two that I noticed so it's not really a problem. Unless they all start to do that then yes I'll be freaking out haha. I have read that not conditioning will cause breakage. 2 months ago I purchased the Transcend Conditioner from dreadlockshampoo so I've been using it once a week. (Btw I HIGHLY recommend that to everyone, it smells INCREDIBLE!!).

   As far as maintenance goes, I haven't done absolutely nothing to them other than washing and separating (31 months and counting). Didn't crochet, twist n rip, palm roll. Nothing at all.

Any input?

Ways To Remove Lint


Dread Products

As far as the lint that's outside the body of the dreadlock I use tweezers, so helpful. I am thinking about buying the charcoal deep cleanse pretty soon though.

Straight hair in dreams.....nightmare!


General Talk

Yet another one last night: I was separating them when I noticed one dread had actually like fell off my scalp, and the surrounding dreads were already trying to congo with it. I was freaked out and immediately put it in my pocket before anyone noticed. The problem at the time for me was trying to figure out the bald spot on my head where the dread broke off of haha Oh man

Straight hair in dreams.....nightmare!


General Talk

One morning my brother got a pair of clippers and put it against my head pretending to shave my dreads off. He used the opposite side, w/out the sharp teeth things. This was no dream though lol he actually did it. I remember waking up gasping for air.

One dream I was taking a shower and washing the dreads only to immediately go to bed afterwards. I woke up in real life convinced that my dreads were wet. How relieved I was when it wasn't haha

Funny how dreams like these are common between us!

Moisturize?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I was about to post the same question. I know dry hair is good for starting out, but by this point I don't consider being part in the early stage (28 months in), that being said I haven't once conditioned other than doing the bs/acv since the start, only to switch to the dreadlockshampoo bars this past July. 

 Twice a month I use the Rot Knot liquid (I keep getting sebum buildup) and that stuff REALLY dries my dreads after I use it, or at least it feels like it. 

So a few questions: Has anyone tried the conditioning oils from Dollylocks?  Or is that store like any other trying to sell you the 'perfect dreadlocks' pitch? 

 Also, now that winter is coming should I care for them differently? Cause I'm thinking they could be more vulnerable to cold weather, you know getting more dry.

Help, distraction needed!!


General Talk

For me that habit has only gotten worse. Well, not that I finger brush them, but I'm either separating or unconsciously messing around with them :P

Mystery "Dread Balls"


General Questions

I used to get those a lot too (I'd say throughout the first year). But I'd just shrug them off and not thing about anything. Don't get them anymore though..
