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..

3_little_birds2316:

I follow dreadication, wonderlocks, dreads.rule, dreadshare, and a few others.  I also follow individual dreadies that I like the look of their profile.  there are some great male dreadhead as well as awesome females to follow.  some I like are:

Female: dreadfulcee, thishappyhippie, encoreever, ellyverandi, 

Male: messy dread (he's just starting), daydreaming101, atillazq, zanderwaves, dropbeatsnotbombs

But they are my style.  there are so many out there.  a great place is to look through the search feature.

Oh duh I forgot about the search feature. Time to go check these accounts! Other than this website it is nice to see other people and their journeys too. Being that I'm the only one in my family and friends who has thought about this hairstyle, it's nice to know others are out there.

Hello, Im trisha. I'm New to dreads


Introduce Yourself

Seems like you have a head start already, as mentioned, just continue to wash and separate and that's basically it. Separating can get a bit of chore but really helpful if you don't want congos.

I don't know anyone with dreadlocks either but this community has helped me tremendously so you'll find a lot of help here.

I do it all the time, but as many that I see that are good, I also see those where their scalp (or sectioning) looks like a soccer ball. I have to repeat to myself 'to each his/her own' over and over again lol I guess some just think that's the ONLY way. After seeing those types of videos, I feel even more glad I followed the natural method

Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

Hmm I'd say I do give them plenty to dry. Washed them yesterday around 2pm and didn't sleep till 3am-ish. Like you I want to get it done early in the day. Can't say I've never slept with them wet. I probably have slept a few times when they were moist in the past but I've stopped that right away.
Oh that's exactly what I did yesterday, driving with the windows down! lol Best blow dryer
And an update on the Rot Know product: It did away with the funky smell and buildup :)

Introduce Yourself

They all sectioned awesomely without any interference. Other than separating often. Though all of my dreads may be knotted up, most of them have around 1-2 inches of loose hair at the tips. Which isn't a bother at all. They're about shoulder length...um I think I need to make a video lol to show the progres
