Disgusted..


General Talk

"Shes keeping her dreads even though some viewers don't like it". As if what people think should make a difference. I mean sure she wants votes but dreads are a lifestyle not just a "oh they don't like it-guess I'll cut them off" kinda thing. One thing that's wierd is I have had several older ladies LOVE my dreads and I wasn't sure they would, my own grandma doesn't care for them, but others do.

Mildew worries, how concerned should i be about dread-rot? and what do you think of Dr. Bronners?


Dread Products


I thought i had harder water than the place where i used to live, but it must not be bad, cuz i seen a discussion about Dr. Bronners leaving dreads sticky in hard water and they are not sticky except for a little area where i put some beads, but it is not bad, not really bad at all.soaringeagle said:

Thank you so much guys! I know you guy say it all over the site, i just wanted to hear it personally i guess. I know baking soda is cheaper and i used a few times and probably still will, its just i wanted to try Dr. Bronners out and I really like it! i just layered the bottom of ketchup bottle and the rest was water like I said, that stuff is amazing!! Yeah i don't even know why i was so worried.

jonny is just trying to create a monopoly on dreasds everything will destroy your dreads but his shit wich actualy does destroy your drewdsa

for 12 years i used any old shampoo then i switched to bronners and finaly to baking ssoda

baking soda cleaned the best and solved my severe scalp issues so i stuck with it

i only had musty dreads from too huge of beads or putting on a tam when they were wet

it is so fucked up that jonna dares warmn against light easy to remove residues while telling u to use a heavy impossible to remove one

if u read that site for tips make sure the tips are for what not to dio..do not trust 1 single thing from that site..it is all wring..all..not 1 good peice of uindo at all

Ok so when i started dreads for the very first time i bought dreadheadhq shampoo, i had to cut my dreads cuz of school, but kept the dreads and put them on a tam to make it look realistic and then used them as extensions when i got them again ... I've said this before, but just recapping, anyway I still had the dreadheadhq shampoo, and i liked it and although i had the dreads for about a year, i still had plenty in there so I've been washing my hair more frequently cuz i wanted to buy some new stuff and since I'm disgusted that DHhq's wax was still in my dreads I decided to buy Dr. Bronners. Unfortunately I still looked at that dreadheadhq.com from time to time for hints (lame- i should stop) and KJC says that all other shampoo's except his leave residue and that can cause mildew, including organic castile soaps. I know its lies that he says wax is good and all, but the things he says about shampoo make sense, cuz you don't really want residues in your hair. I used Dr. Bronners today and i don't feel any residue, except they smell nice, I'm pretty sure that he's full of crap and I'm sure you guys will agree, I just want to hear it from someone who has had dreads for years, say it. I don't want to have mildew ever show up in my hair. My hair takes awhile to dry, even when i blowdry, it still takes a while to get completely dry, no problems yet, I'm just a little concerned. I put just enough Dr. Bronners soap to layer the bottom of a plastic empty ketchup bottle and then put water in the rest and wow!!! it still felt like too much cuz it felt really tingly on the scalp.

7 years no combing= no dreads 1 month of intentional no combing=dreads


Dreading Methods

I haven't combedy hair in years but i used lots of conditioner and finger combed as well. I wanted dreads just wasn't sure when and then the back of my head dreaded up and I couldn't get em out so I was like well must be time so I backcombed some in the front to speed things up a little and everywhere I couldn't see to backcomb just dreaded up nicely.

Maybe the guy or girl failed to mention that they detangles with their fingers? My friend hasn't combed his hair in years, but he keeps big knots at bay with his fingers. (one day he will start dreading though. I'm so excited!)

cutting dreads? donate to cancer patients


General Talk

Or maybe not completely cut them off but just cut a lot off for those with really long dreads, just saying. I wish i could, but my dreads aren't long enough, I can't wait until they are down to my waist.

My experience with wax (sad story)


Introduce Yourself

i guess I'll just have to save up and buy some of that bodysplash stuff. it just seems like a lot of money.

Hi Luke,

did you read here ..

and follow up that with this link ..

if you used wax (even a couple of times) you can assume the wax is still there and it's my guess that is what's causing your concern.. take steps to get rid of the wax .. you can try all the different methods (which I did as well) or you can try the one I found actually rid my dreads of wax .. Bodysplash

be well .. rawsum

Someone please give me some advice. I don't ever want to buy from dreadheadhq again because of my experience with wax, but i still have a bottle of shampoo left and i want to use it up, but i want to use something cheaper. I've read that dreadheadhq is bad because it strips too much out of the hair and its okay to have some smell in the hair, but on the other hand you aren't supposed to leave residue. The thing that I'm getting at is, I've used regular shampoo a few times to save on the dreadheadhq shampoo, cuz I want to use it to get rid of the residue from the regular shampoo. The thing is when i was using just the dreadhead shampoo my hair just smelled like hair and i kind of prefer that. The last time i used regular shampoo was about a month ago and it was an ocean mist smell and i can still slightly smell it, even though i used the dreadhead shampoo, baking soda, and recently i used white vinegar cuz i couldn't find any apple cider vinegar. Now it smells a little like vinegar even though i tried the best I could to rinse it out. Is it okay to use regular white vinegar, or is that bad or not as useful as ACV? Any advice? Is it okay to have a slight smell in your hair? I don't want mildew or any bad smells to occur.

Introduce Yourself

i only waxed like twice a week for the first couple of weeks, then i had a friend with dreads tell me wax was stupid and not necessary (not really that it stayed in there and was nasty) and so i stopped. I saw a hair site for regular hair where they said that wax was hard to get out of, on STRAIGHT hair, of course its gonna stay in dreadlocks. wax is a stupid, stupid idea.
