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.

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...

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


General Questions

I'm about nine months into the natural process and I feel like I have stopped having progress for the past 2 months

My scalp is greasy so my loose hair is greasy too. It doesn't want to dread.

My dreads are dry. I have tried ACV a couple times and it doesn't seem to work. I use about 1/4th of a cup to 2 cups of water. I don't know if I am using enough, but I don't know if more will help me anyway. Also, it smells horrible and I don't know what to do about the smell.

When my dreads would start, it would be because tiny little white fibers from random things would get stuck in my hair and help the dreading process. Now these fibers are really obvious and I've had a lot of people say "Oh wow, you have a lot of lint..." it's in there forever now and I want to cut my dreads down so people will stop saying that.

I also damaged my hair from brushing it a lot over the past several years. Because of this, a lot of the hair stopped growing back and it thinned out. Now that hair is returning but it isn't dreading up with the rest of my dreads because it is so greasy.

It's 9 months in and while all of my hair has basically dreaded, I don't feel like it looks like dreads. I think it just looks like a mess somewhat resembling dreads. Because of all the loose hair both undreaded and the loose hair that is just hanging off some of my dreads, I don't look like I have dreads. Just really gross hair.

I am feeling extremely self-conscious about my hair and basically want to comb it out or cut it all off right now. It's short and gross and AHHHH. I wish I could just fix it.

Here you can see (me on the left, obviously). It doesn't look like dreads. but it's definitely really messy. This is from a couple months ago but it really hasn't changed that much since then.

Someone please help me or something ugh.

Wrapping all of my dreads??


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Hi everyone,

So, my dreads are about 7 months old now (all natural, baby! woo!), and as one might expect, I still have some loose hairs. I have pulled some of these clumps into existing, tiny dreads to eventually create one bigger dread. My hair is pretty much completely separated, and my dreads have locked from the bottom up, so while it is all separated, I still have about 3-6 inches of loose hair starting at my scalp.

From that point, I have some hairs that haven't attached to any dread and are just kind of flying off into nowhere. It is not even frizzyness, just hair that hasn't really dreaded and it is beginning to annoy me. I kind of want to wrap my dreads to give them shape and get all the hairs doing their thing. The problem with that is I might have to wrap all of them.

Would that be a bad idea? Should I use beads? I don't even know how to wrap my dreads, really?


I guess I am worried that I might screw them up--and I know I can just wait, but I have been wanting to wrap them for awhile anyway.


Okay, that's all. HALP
