head-washing = )))

You might even try to dilute the burdock oil in water.....well ya know mix the two in a spray bottle with sea salt like two pinches and then shake it up and mist daily to every other day for some light scalp repair.

Oh okay I c what you are saying. You should definentley try an apple cider vinegar soak then. Take a pitcher of water and add your 1/4 cup of bs and then add 4 cap fulls of the acv. I've done this and it helps alot! Saturate your head with the solution and then allow it to sit on your scalp for at least 10 minutes. I only do that once a week. Rinse it out good with cold water and it should help alot! Your hair won't smell either lol!

Oh man that sux about the oils. I would think just a good residue free shampoo would be fine. The powdered soap I'm sure tears your scalp up...ouch. Baby shampoo would be fine too.

under "white paste" I mean not the mixture itself - some ppl say that when u pour it out on your head, it bonds with fat and creates soap. smth like that =))) the oils are not very easy to find where I live, and they are expensive - so I'd like some more simple ways to wash my head)))) I made the burdock oil myself, it grows everywhere in here = )))

I don't know a whole lot but I'm pretty sure the bs mixture shouldn't be pasty. Mix the bs and water together in a pitcher making sure your head is saturated. Let it sit while you wash your bod maybe 10 min or so and rinse with cold water.Gotta let it sit though. I use tea tree oil like 10 drops with 1/4 cup of bs in a 2qt pitcher. The tea tree oil soothes the scalp and then I use a lavender and sea salt mist in between washes.

MY DREADS JUST WON'T DREAD!


General Questions

Maybe backcombing them will work. They all say time is the best answer though. If they are natural then it could take longer than 6 mos to a year. I really like the twist and rip method and I use it to help with locking my ends. Good Luck!

Dread tips keep coming loose


Dread Maintenance

I have baby dreads too and I have found that banding the ends of my dreads has been working. They all say it does take some time. I'm keeping that in mind during this process. It's hard but they will form in time. Don't give up so quickly. The outcome will be well worth the frustration.
