Conditioner and Dreads


Dread Maintenance

Whether your using a shampoo or BS washes follow them with a ACV (or any vinegar) Rinse.There's lots of guides to the bs Acv wash.If your already doing the bs acv wash, leave the vinegar in a little longer before rinsing

i've always had itchy scalp too, lately i've been doing as Panterra(thanx) suggested and spot treating with peppermint oil. Works great just use cottonball or tissue soaked in pepermint oil and rub it on scalp on itchy spot(may sting if skin is red,but ok) about 5 to 10 min later itch is gone for the day.

i want to grow neglect locks..help


Introduce Yourself

Take a 2 litre jug add to it:3-4 tablespoons of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) -this cleans the hair3 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil - helps keep scalp heathy3 drops of Lavender Essential Oil - natural anti fungal and smells great lol2-3 drops of tea tree Essential Oil - repels Lice(Can use many other oils if you want and there's some good advice on here with regards to them.)Now fill your jug with HOT water and mix well. And leave to cool whilst you wet your hair.Now pour the mixture over your head and leave for 7-10 mins.Next rince your hair really well but don't rub it or you'll reverse the knots. Just rince your scalp and the dreads will take care of themselves.Now rince your jug out and add to it about a quarter of a shot glass of Apple cider Vinegar. Or any vinegar really. And fill with cool water.Pour this over your head. And leave for a few seconds at most before rincing. The longer it's in the more moisturised your hair will feel but too much will cause your baby pics to detangle.Never mix the bicarbonate and vinegar as it causes a mass of foam and does no good to your hair. Always rince between.It's that simple. Wash as often as you like and I look forward to the coming pics lol

Old vs young


General Talk

I've often thought we live in an ever more tolerant society. And when I had long hair it was confirmed to me by the fact the younger people (under 50) loved my shoulder length hair and over 50s tended to describe me as a roughen or messy.But with dreads I've found my older encounters positive and complimentary. And most of my prejudice has been from 40s and under.Anyone else had similar experience? I think it's a sign of the worlds views when each generation was impressionable to such things. People who were young in late 60s are more tolerant of dreads than those born into the deep depression of the 70s etcMaybe rubbish just getting it out there. :-P

A little tea tree will alive the itching but too much dries the scalp. So you need something to help heal the scalp and Rosemary oil is that amazing product.Also look at the hats your wearing! Don't wear a tam that makes your head sweat too much etc

A little upset


Help! Save My Dreads

Congo sounds great idea se!

Also, try a looser fitting hat like a tam, it would be a shame to lose them all because of one spot that will grow back in time. They will all dread up before you know it! Know it's not what you want to hear but I hope it helps. :)
