African Black Soap


Dread Products

I went to the Lush store in Chicago about a month ago, and yes, their products have at least a trace of SLS in them. Also, the one shampoo bar that *doesn't* have SLS and I was considering buying is loaded with coconut oil, which is fine but not real great for dreads. I was also disappointed because I went there with the full intention of buying their henna but they told me it will NOT cover grey hair( I have several throughout). I love Lush and their products and mission are outstanding,though--so I'm not knocking it at all.

separating confusion


Dread Maintenance

That actually helped alot...thanks everyone. Is it okay to actually break hairs that are trying to join in with a dread...like if there's just 3 or 4 random hairs but I know they're not where they should be,because of the pulling,etc....but if they're not actually joined into a Root, how do I actually break them free from a dread?

separating confusion


Dread Maintenance

Hey everyone...my almost 2 month T&R'd dreadies are doing great, I'm just a bit confused about separating.I don't have congo's or anything....but I do have a LOT of "webbing" close to my scalp that just feels tighter and tighter and I'm noticing more small amounts of hairs locking themselves to each dread....but in kind of weird ways.Is separating as a maintenance measure also with even small amounts of hair...and what about this webbing against my scalp?(mainly in the back of my head) I hope I'm making myself clear,because I don't feel like I am. When you separate,what exactly are you doing? It seems I mostly read about people separating individual dreads or congo's that are forming when speaking about separating...so If I shouldn't be messing with these small amounts of hairs joining,then I won't. Sometimes it feels like the hairs trying to marry into a dread aren't where they belong though,because it's pretty uncomfortable and pulls. Hope someone understands what i'm rambling about here...

Dreading Methods

No,I don't think it's a contradiction at all. It was a mess by the time my friend helped me...my hair was very long and what was already locking on the underneath layers had started to become one massive congo....it took quite a bit of time for her to even seperate it and salvage what had already begun naturally. There's no way I would've wanted to deal with that for my whole head. I just think your way of addressing people is at times extremely judgemental and I don't understand that.

Dreading Methods

@Kai Rayne-- This journey for each of us is such a personal one, and I feel more and more strongly distasteful about the attitudes of "this is right" and "this is wrong". I'm with you....there's NO way I would be able to be patient enough to wait out my hair locking through neglect. I, as well, T&R'd(my friend did) and I was able to jump start that way. Either way, it still requires patience because I'm only a month 1/2 in, and my hair certainly still looks hilarious and goofy! Also, contrary to what SE said, I most definitely would have sections locking together along the nape of my neck after only about 12-24 hours. When my friend ended up T&R'ing for me- she seperated about 6 good, strong dreads on my neck that were there purely from neglect...so,yes I totally believe there's many people who commonly start seeing strong sectioning within 2 days!

Wool pillow case for my impatient head


Introduce Yourself

Yay for cosleeping :) Yes, I believe the wool on your pillow at night helps alot...definitely in the beginning but you certainly wouldn't need to stop once your dreadies are mature.I just buy a 100% wool sweater at a thrift store and maybe even get a youth or young adult size, and I fold the arms of the sweater inside and slip my pillow inside the sweater from the waistline up....so it actually fits the pillow pretty tight without any looseness. I just look for 100% wool...nothing synthetic.
