How does this girl do this?


Introduce Yourself

I think she started with two pony tails, one on top the other, twisted the top one loosley and then combined the two with her head band.

Lemon juice to help hair lock?


Dread Maintenance

That's really interesting. I think I'll stick to good ol triple antibiotic before I start squeezing lemon water over my wounds though xD LOL It does make me want to learn more about lemons though, like what else they can be used for. hmm...

Does that mean that it can clean wounds? I mean, no one is going to squirt a lemon over their wounds but is it possible?lol

I think I heard that lemon juice can bleach skin, isn't that how some people get rid of freckles? Personally I don't know why anyone would want to get rid of freckles--I love freckles!

I didn't know that baking soda exfoliated! I'll be sure to pick up a can teh next time I'm at the store. Thanks for all of the helpful advice. I already have the vinager--I have a huge two gallon jug that sits under my sink xD LOL And of course I'll be sure not to mix the two O.O

Thank you for telling me how to use the baking soda, I think I'll give it a shot next week or so and if I like it will probably use it once a month. Since it's a deep cleanse does it strip your hair of it's natural oils or weaken it at all?I didn't know about the apple cider vinager. I haven't heard of it actually, is it like white vinager? I use white vinager to clean dishes and my animal supplies because I don't trust other products not to leave a bad residue that could make me or my babies ill.

Lemon juice to help hair lock?


Dread Maintenance

Thank you very much. I've already used it a couple of times so I will definitely lay off on the salt water for a while. I don't use baking soda, actually I don't shampoo, I don't like product because my hair always felt a lot better when it was rinsed thouroughly with water and a good scalp scrubbing. Before I began allowing my hair to dread (with the help of some initial backcombing) I didn't use shampoo either because when I did my hair was incredibly limp and oily, but when I used my nails to scrub my scalp and only allowed water in my hair it had a nice wave to it and a lot more volume. ^_^How do you use your baking soda mix and do you think I should use that now that I'm dreading my hair?

Lemon juice to help hair lock?

It's a product that uses the natural minerals in the ocean to almost perfectly replicate the marine environment for salt water wish in home aquariums. It wasn't very expensive at all and I've used it for fish in the past so I trust it to be at the very least very similar to an ocean environment. Hopefully it will work the same on hair as the actual ocean LOL. I also make sure that I even have the right specific gravity of ocean water (1.025). Thank you for your insight, I'm very happy to get a reply from you so fast because I've read a lot from you giving advice to others and you're very experienced in dreads, thank you very much! I will forget the lemon juice and just continue with the sea salt. How often would you suggest that I soak my hair in the sea water?Again, I appreciate your advice. =)

I can't remember where I heard this, but I heard that it will help your hair lock faster, is that true? If so, can't I mix it with my salt water to wet my hair (there are no oceans near me, so I use Instant Ocean salt water mix meant for salt water aquariums)?And by the way, I'm new here and just started my dreadlocks with a loittle bit of backcombing about two weeks ago. I've read a bunch of topics on this forum and I find it very fun and informative. I'm very happy to be a member! =) And it's nice to finally say that it's nice to meet all you other dreadheads =D

Yeah, after learning what I learned here though it's sad how many dreads are failing because big businesses only care about money.
