Not sure where to ask this question...
same took me abit you can click the green dot and it puts you offline if you want the noise to go away.
just a thought,
do a few tnr rip yourself to get the hang of it, then teach a friend ask them to do a couple then ask another friend then another etc that way all your friends would of created a few dreads each till your done... and if you're bored tell them they can name them lol.. maybe do the sections yourself and someone you trust to do the back if your doing sections... if not more random looks more natural but that's up to you.
I got my gf to section my hair then done all the tnr myself took 3 days on and off.
If aloe is a conditioner and not good on baby dreads what is good to use... my scalps been rather dry but always has been, is the jojoba or vitamin e or shae you mentioned ok to use? I know shae more for african hair ...
Mainly interested because ive seen a few mention in extreme natural that the oils that the body naturally produces helps dreadlocks mature, but there like all stringy and oily first, as my scalp is rather dry is their a substitute that will help.... not looking for quick fix for faster maturing mainly just curious.
how long did u leave it on?
when possible avoid gerting it on yoir scalp at all
and dont leave on too long
sea salt is not nesacary it helps but if it hurts its not worth it
definately dont overuse r leacve on too long
Will be different for everyone,
I used the sea salt last night and woke up with white extremely crusty bits on my head, I have had dandruff and already have a psoriasis problems but has been tamed down, I have also used the salt spray before but this time i added bit extra salt than usual so I would say that's what caused it (i did let it dissolve also).
The salt spray is Great but just watch how much is used and tame it back if your having any problems.
Also applying a little aloe made the itchiness go away and dissolved the crusty bits, but i am trying not to use the aloe until my dreads mature.
Im starting with short dreads, but even if you crochet eventually they will untangle and look frizzy again and even more so if you washing often. Crochet may look tidy at first but will eventually be the same as tnr or even backcombing thats why people who crochet have to keep doing it to maintain that look and thats why they weaken the dreads from continuous maintenance. If you still want drfeads do TnR and adjust the ratios of you Bs and acv, you can use more bs and less acv to help with the oiliness. Also with short hair its easier to hide your mess under a hat or tam etc if your worried,but part of the dreadlock process is accepting and letting go including social conventions that say eeeeewwwww dreadlocks (whether their mature messy or not).
If you still crochet you will set back getting mature dreads by 6 or so months and then the normal timeline but its alot, just dont ever do it again, and you can shower every day just keep dreads out of the water wash them every 3 days or somthing, but be prepared for them to loosen and read the forum before going and re crocheting or even worse waxing, dont put bands in yous hair either, whatever method you try to keep them in that first day look will only stop progress.
You wont find many that wont try and talk you out of crochet here, lots of people have had dreads break due to it, but if youre determined theres nothing anyone can say you will notice the difference eventually and have to start over. But it doesn't mean for you to not start dreadlocks with a different process and you will find help with oiliness and even tidying them up when need be.
