new dread locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

Yeah, I asked Vicki a little bit about it and here's the email she sent back to me:

You can apply the gel to dry or damp hair. Just dip your fingertips
in the jar and twist that amount onto your dread. I twist until you
can;t see any beads of gel. So its not a ton of gel. You can do this
everyday in between washes. You can let it get wet in each shower
without washing and then apply it again. It doesn't build up. You
can reapply in the same day.
I know you will love what it does so you don't need to wear a tam. Play
around with it. I hope this helps.


I've used it twice now, and I agree with SE. It's definitely gel like, but doesn't function like you would think a gel would. I've gotten best results from twisting it into my hair as Vicki advised. It definitely does trap the lose hairs and keeps them together. They get rough around the edges and stay together--I can see it with one of my flyaways already.


I think the most important part with the gel is, like Vicki said, to play around with it and see what works best for you. I definitely think daily use is possible and even recommended. Plus your hair smells so fucking good after using it how could you not.

My Natural Dreads Timeline-Dreadlocks can form fast with neglect


Member Journals and Timelines

As usual, I haven't updated for like four months, oh well. I'm surprised to look back at the post I made a little while ago and discover how far I've come in these five months. I'm hoping that by a year, my hair will look even more like dreadlocks than it does now!

I never really see them from behind, so these next couple of pictures kind of surprised me!

Here's what I mean when I say it looks like a mess :( From the back, you can definitely tell it is dreads. But all of the loose hair on the sides here clouds the look! I don't know what to do about it, honestly. It's just hair that sticks out of the dread, so I'm thinking of wrapping it or putting a bead on it or I don't know. I hope it clears up soon.

Frizz wouldn't bother me, but this is more than frizz. So much loose random hair ugh!! I don't like the way it looks.

Buuut, my dreads look cooler from behind than I thought. I thought I was gonna cut these paddles off when my hair got long enough, but they actually look kind of bad ass so I might keep them.

Mess mess messy :(:(:(

w/e I'm still cute.

So, I haven't gotten to use the shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com yet but I'm hoping that washing with that will help my greasy/dry dread/loose hair problem. Here's hoping. If that doesn't work I'm holding out for that gel they have... I plan on slapping it all over my head. That'll show that loose hair!!

Hope everyone likes my hair... I love it, despite my issues with it. Would not go back--just hope that when I graduate I can get a job. I'm planning on just wrapping up every day, worse comes to worse.

I have the same issue as Heather. DO WANT!!

P.S. I got my shampoo from them in the mail (Dragon's Blood) and they sent me a free sample of the Nag Champa--why didn't I get that to begin with, it smells SO GOOD argh.

Greasy scalp, dry, scratchy dreads, lint... feeling self-conscious and anxious HELP PLEASE!!!!


General Questions

Thanks for the tips. I honestly would never take them out and start all over. I would only take them out to be done with it forever. Plus I do love them the way they are, I just kind of wish they looked more like dreads and less like... random hair.

No, I have always had greasiness issues. Way less now, but my hair would be greasy by the end of the day before I dreaded--and I washed it every day. Now, my scalp is probably greasy by the 3rd or 4th day.

General Questions

Heather--I never thought about that!! You're right! I'm such a fool! Lol. I'm going to switch over to the dreadlockshampoo liquid shampoo and then try the bars. Ah! Can't believe I never thought about it.

How do you make your sea salt rinse and how do you do it? I need to start this because I definitely need to get the residues out of my hair!!

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Your hair looks freaking gorgeous by the way.

Greasy scalp, dry, scratchy dreads, lint... feeling self-conscious and anxious HELP PLEASE!!!!


General Questions

Sorry, I should have specified. I have done the BS/ACV wash a couple times. It didn't make me feel any cleaner, really and maybe a little greasier? I usually use this soap :http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=nubian+heritage+african+black+soap&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=4976907679113305633&sa=X&ei=Oc0FT4mPHIaJtwfb_eHSBg&ved=0CIYBEPMCMAE

I just rub the bar into my scalp and rinse it ever 4 days or so.

Also the ACV doesn't go away when I rinse, I can still smell it in my hair after I'm done. Am I not rinsing enough? I have no idea how to rinse these things. I just want my dreads to be soft. :( I might try the dreadlock shampoo bars...
