What to use to wash dreads?
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
Thank you very very much! I'll use it first thing tomorrow when I shower for school. (: What is ACV?
I got dreadlocks about two weeks ago and I'm a little bit confused about what to use to wash them. I read on here about the baking soda wash but teatree oil is so expensive and I can't find rosemary or lavender oil anywhere. I have been using a Burt's Bee's rosemary shampoo bar. I went to a little shop in my town today and there were these homemade soaps and there were all sorts of different kinds like unscented oatmeal soap, hemp soap, lemon soap, lavender soap, and a whole bunch of other soaps that looked really good and I was wondering if it would be abad idea to use that on my hair?
I'm sorry if this is a stupid question.
Also, my scalp is a bit itchy. What can I do about that?
hello maddy's mom
i have had dreadlocks over 20 years and take very good care of them and take pride in keeping them clean, in fact, dreads will take way longer to dread if they are dirty. maddy knows that dreads are clean and also is aware of the ignorance of many surropunding dreads. facing these sterotypes and proving them wrong builds charachter and strength. in addition dreading is healthy not only for the hair but personalityas well. building valuable confidence independence and healthy self image.
many people in theyre teens suffer such horrible depression from judgment, self and body image issues, identity issues and moee.. dreading cures these causing the individual to be strong, and self confident.
i know your wish is to be protective but in this case facing those fears of descrimination and judgmebt is what will cause maddy to rise above and be unaffected.
talk to maddy theres a reason why maddy wants dreads its not just a look its deeper then that it affects your life
causes a serenity and wisdom, confidence andsecurity
many of the things so many lack in theyre lives.

So my mom is really against me getting dreadlocks. I've tried to convince her so many times to let me get dreadlocks but the best that she would let me do was get only 3 dreadlocks, and I have had those for about 2 months and now I want more really bad. She says she won't let me because they're dirty, which they aren't if you take care of them. I'm only sixteen and unless I convice her I won't be able to get a full head until I move out. I love dreadlocks so much and I think that they are absolutely gorgeous. Does anyone have any advice for me? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
