shampoo


Dread Maintenance

hi, sorry i took so long to reply. right now im using knotty boy liquid shampoo, it has peppermint, teatree, and rosemary oils. once thats gone im gonna start the bs/acv wash. I would have started that earlier, but my scalp was so bad i was worried about the white mud thing. im also gonna pick up some neutrogena anti-residue shampoo to help get rid of the sebum in my roots.

So what are you using now to wash your hair??

I wouldn't use it. Not only does it have SLS but a lot of other salts added, which dries your scalp way too much. Your scalps then going to overproduce sebum to combat the dryness. thats probably why she said it made her roots stick together since sebum is waxy. I used it for a long time and since ive stopped my scalps gotten better, but all that sebum is hard to remove.

Hair Loss?


General Questions

I'd guess it's just from backcombing. I had this one dread that was caked in wax (never should of had any) so I combed it out and lost almost half the hair in it. Probably because none of the hair that falls out daily was able to leave and when you undo them or they fall out, that hair falls out too and you just notice it more cause it's all at once

to crochet or not to crochet


Introduce Yourself

I just thought of something. I'm not sure how knotted and tight the body of your dreads are because I have no personal experience with natural dreads, but if they're kinda losse still then t&r might pull the entire dread in half, and it would be like having brand new t&r dreads. I could be totally wrong though lol. Just a thought I had

Introduce Yourself

I see were you're coming from on the ends bugging you. Mine are usually curly and I don't really care for it. But like princenoobsauce suggested, t&r is a better thing to do than crochet. I did t&r on my ends and it took care of the major curls.

How to Convince Parents to allow Dreads? Any Ideas?


Life Issues Facing Dreads

It might also not be a bad idea to gather a few pictures of peoples' dreads earlier on and then when they've matured, that way your parents might see that it is a process and they will look amazing in the end and that your not "doing it wrong" :). I had to do this with my parents.

My dreads wont stay together???


Introduce Yourself

I'm sure that work, if it doesn't get nasty or become part of the dread (rubberbands) then I don't see how it' could hurt it. By the way, your dreada are looking pretty sweet!
