Ideas on exfoliating your scalp?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

So obviously since we with dreads can't brush our hair, how do you guys exfoliate? I'm thinking about picking up a hair pick or something and seeing if that helps, can you do it lightly with your nails? questions questions

COtton stuck in dreads! :S


General Talk

I can't imagine a small amount of cotton would cause any harm, basically all dreads have a small amount of lint in them and that's perfectly fine.

Athletics while locks are forming


General Questions

Yea I've had my dreadies for a year and a half and I skateboard like 5 hours a day, it can get pretty lame especially the day after I shower and I go sweat like crazy. It definitely doesn't interfere though if anything I think it helps cause sweat is just salt mostly, but it's kinda gross

Natural Dreads- can I tie up my hair?


Dread Maintenance

Okay I know I read all over the place that palm rolling doesn't do anything but I must strongly disagree!!! As some of you know some of my dreads are all natural, some are backcomed and left alone, and some are backcombed and then palmrolled lightly. And ALL of my palm rolled dreads are perfectly cylindrical and straight, while my other ones are curly and loopy and crazy. (I love the variety though) So I'm tellin you guys, palm rollings gotta do something 0.0

natural dreads catagories freeform organic neglect


Dreading Methods

So are these established terms or something? And if so who decided that? And even if they are I think the term neglect should be abolished because it has negative connotations which dreads obviously don't need. And no seperation doesn't that always usually end in the uni dread? Cause if so I would have a hard time only referring to unis as organic. Though actually I could see what you mean if free form means no seperation cause it always seems when I see dreads under free form the roots look like they trying to form together but I always though that was just because african textured hair fros really quick. Do you think it could just be more popular for black people to say free form? Cause I'm telling you, youtube that shit there are like only black people using that term

natural dreads catagories freeform organic neglect


Dreading Methods

I definitely don't know the exacts but I usually think of it like this - I usually hear people with african textured hair use the term free form, and if you look on youtube like everyone under the search free form is black.

I think of "neglect" as an improper term, and Organic I think of as just washed and seperated.

I know that wasn't exactly what you were looking for but just thought I'd add my two cents ;p

washing only with water


Dread Maintenance

I don't know how anyone has ever thought it was a good idea to wash with just water. Do these people stop believing in dirt and air polluntants? What did you tell that chick to get her to see that washing your hair is necessary?

changing to freeform


Introduce Yourself

Yep me too. If you haven't been maintaining your dreads for any amount of time and you've only initially backcombed you will notice after a few months that they take a shape completely of there own. Backcombing really just gives them a head start (and some damaged hair, more damaging if you comb them out though :o) and for me backcombing was kind of a failure anyway cause most of the dreads fell out and they just dreaded up naturally

Introduce Yourself

"And out of ANY person who has dreads..guess whose always looks the best..Black people." That is an extremely close and simple minded thing to say, That wasn't in any way stated as an opinion more like it was a fact.I would expect anyone who has dreads would know better then to make a statement like that and would understand just how subjective beauty is to a given individual. I for one wouldn't even have dreads if I were black cause I don't care for the way it looks but I would never say dreads only look good on white people
