Dread update: 2months hair is still wet


Member Journals and Timelines

if your worried about flatness get a tam to sleep in and wear around; having your locks up in a tam allows them the freedom to move around and create knots, and lets for them to be in ways that they normally would not and helps get loose hair and stuff like on the top of your head to knot up. i have a basket hat from knotty boy from a couple years back and i've lived in that thing for days at a times

help white stuff


General Questions

Sounds like to much salt build up, salt leaves a white residue and it sounds like you overused it a bit, but it can happen to anyone, and could be anything; we had to use a burts bees bar to wash a couple times and i have no problem with it but my fiance had some left over unpleasantness until we did the bs/acv. you should chill on the salt sprays and wash with bs for a little bit than let it do its thing, stop trying to speed up the process so much and enjoy the journy

my hair is fine straight and silky


Dreading Methods

I would try washing with just baking soda, me personally, I have nothing but trouble using bronners, and stop trying to do so much to force things to happen, i went with out brushing for 3 months or so before doing tnr, and a good portion of it fell out and came back together, just need to have the patience to let it do what its going to do

how to make my dreads longer!


Introduce Yourself

backcombing mashes your hair down, and it will only get shorter as they mature, as the knots form, and get tighter, usually meaning your locks will get shorter, and skinnier, before they get longer or fatter, but keeping them clean and washing often might speed the process up a little bit, but as with everything else, all things comes with time and patience

What do you think ???


Introduce Yourself

he has a few songs i can dig but i tried to listen to, i think the song he has out is "la la la", it isn't my thing, he is doing with a fakeJamaican accent, and saying he is the reincarnate ofMarley,little bit of an ego huh? he need to let that go, he does not for peace and love or for good and to bring together, he does for self and for greed, to swell his pockets and his bank accounts

Introduce Yourself

eh, i've used knotty boy bar soap and loved it so i wouldn't demonize it, your hair is short, it is going to get loose and lots if not most of the dreads will fall out or loosen. you need to keep in mind that dreads generally have a good 1-2" of loose hair at the roots that has/will not dread, that means that if you have 4 inch dreads, it is safe to assume that at least half that will be undreaded for some time

your best bet is to use a bs rinse, using bar soaps or anything that may require being lathered or scrubbed is going to be rough on new dreads.

Introduce Yourself

your hair looks super short and from experience, shorter dreads are hard to keep together, your best bet is to put on a tam and stop looking at them or you'll end up trying to "fix" them or combing them out. just chill and let'em go with the flow

dealing with ignorance


General Talk

i don't deal with them, last time i saw my mom's side of the family i was flipping them off telling them to go fuck themselves, i don't need my daughter exposed to hateful racists who stereotype and talk about people behind there back like a bunch of children and i told my dad's side what i really thought about them, there was a lot more to it than that but long story short my christmas has been smooth sailing the last 2 years since i removed them from my life and i have no regrets, their just bad people regardless of relation and i wouldn't be bothered with them if we weren't related so why should they matter to me simply because they are?

they say blood is thicker than water, and i guess thats true because the waves in my life will always calm and troubles get washed down stream in time, but the blood was bad and all it wanted to do was boil.

loctician dread disaster (yet again)


Dreading Methods

it can be helpful as it can add some texture to straight hair and help it get knotty, but it can cause scalp irritation so you only want it hitting your dreads if possible. i add in 3 tbsp of sea salt to my bs when i wash and that way it does it's thing then gets rinsed out. just make sure you use sea salt and not table salt
