Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

The Rot Knot smelled so good! That has to be the best smelling product I've used in my dreads lol (if only the bars were similar). And like you mentioned, I didn't limit the  amount I was using, so I REALLY soaked the dreads in the liquid. Going to continue using it until that buildup goes away. 

I'm in a budget so as far as my diet goes, I'm that college diet. I do shower every day though, a habit I guess. But like I said, I cover them up so they don't get wet, unless its a scheduled wash.

I'll ask about that charcoal deep cleanse!

Introduce Yourself

ceebenn:

Here are my two week pics. Not sure I see anything happening... but I'm continuing, using dreadlocks shampoo.

The back of your head looked exactly like mine when I started my journey 5 years ago. It was looking at myself lol I cut mine though shortly after that, but in 2013 decided to go for it again.

 So far I'm 25 months in, and just like everyone else will tell you, it takes time. Since you seem to have the same type of hair as mine, you might start to see some sort of progress around your 6-8 month mark. Then again I think that's the norm now for people starting.

Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

I don't rinse in between because if I do my scalp gets very oily afterwards. So I just wait for that ONE day to wash them, and don't bother in between. I've rinsed them before (for certain  situations) but don't like the outcome. I cover them up when I shower so they don't get wet, usually with a shirt or a Walmart plastic bag lol. 

So the days that I don't wash my dreads I mainly shower at night, so I cover them cause it's usually late and I don't won't be able to let them dry if I wet them. On the scheduled days I DO wash them, I try to get it early in the day, and I'd say it takes about half the day for them to dry. 

Do you recommend rinsing them in between the washes?

Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

After looking up what sebum buildup was about, I'm think that's EXACTLY what it is! Thanks for pointing that out :) Wonder how long it'll take to self regulate. I've waited  this long in my journey, whats another month or two right? haha 

 I wash mine every 4-6 days. I don't rinse at all between either (I cover them bad boys up). So I'm definitely gonna try the product in my next wash. Also I've been air drying mine since the beginning, I don't use a towel or blow dryer to quicken up the drying process. I do squeeze the life of them though. Air drying is good right? As long as they have enough time to dry of course.

 thanks for the advice soaring eagle.

Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

Found some mildew (mold?) in some of my dreadlocks. Here's one pic (I tried to get more but got extremely frustrated due to my
 inability to take pictures of the back of my head).
Been told by my younger sister that my hair smelled like a 'closet' and a friend once sneaked a quick sniff of them once after a
 scheduled wash, he said they smelled like a wet dog. I knew right then that something was up cause I've read that that's a huge
 red flag of mold/gunk and such. Up until now I would brush it off cause, well c'mon who wants to admit that they have gunk in
 their hair!? Plus as much as I hate to admit this is that I think I got used to the smell and I didn't check the actual
 dreadlocks cause I thought I was doing everything correctly. But NOW I'm noticing the smell even more now.
So the buildup I have is towards the root of the dreads. If I were to grab the part of the dread that has the gunk between two
 fingers and put pressure or move my fingers in a circular motion, it feels sticky and mushy.
I've been using the shampoo bars from dreadlockshampoo (tea tree and peppermint bar) these past 3-4 months. Could it be the
 bars?
Any who I recently bought the Rot Knot (mold killer) off dreadlockshampoo website and I want to ask any instructions on how to
 properly use it? I've also read about a 'Deep Cleanse' and the ol' 'BS/ACV' wash. Which of these three would actually remove
 the problem I have?

P.S. I'm 25 months in the natural/free form method (my profile pic was taken the 2 months after my last hair cut lol). I've only done the bs/acv until  recently switching to the shampoo bars.
 Only maintenance I do is wash and separate

Awesome with the progress, allI can say is keep on going for it. As for my "progress", well for some it might not be good news, but I cut all my hair back in April. Forgot to mention that.

nah it's cool, I find it funny, made me laugh a bit, but yea some people love my hair (moslty girls because of the curls/baby dreads) but others just think I look ridiculous w/ long hair, and they say I look 100x better w/ short hair. And about beads, I think they'll just slip off at this stage, so maybe in the future? once dreads are mature enough ( i don't know anything about using beads so that's my guess). but I'll let you know though, thanks

As of saturday of last week, it has been a year since i got my hair cut, PLUS that same day I hit my 5th month mark of my journey, here's a pic of the 1st day i got my hair cut, and the following pictures shows my 5th month going all natural, and also shows you how much my hair has grew over a 1 year period.

----Nov 29, 09

Dec 3, 10

this may look like a congo, it's not, during school i fell asleep, and woke up to a friend who was trying to braid my hair, I was going to unravel it, but then promised her I wouldn't, so lets see if they join together or unravel over the upcoming months
