Ways To Remove Lint
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.
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
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
