Loose hairs- ALSO got my tam in the mail :D much love to SE


General Questions

I've been separating some for now, just because I think some of the small ones that formed will eventually "eat" the loose hair around it, but wasn't sure what I should do completely lol thank you for your input :)

Loose hairs- ALSO got my tam in the mail :D much love to SE


General Questions

So, as most of you know I love my dreads. I love my loose hairs, i love my loops, my curls, my crazy. But a lot of my loose hairs formed their own small babies. (I'll post pictures as soon as I get the chance today) I probably have around 10 (just a guesstimate) They're wicked cute, but I'm afraid because they're so thin they'll break off, will more loose hair form into these, to thicken them? Or should I not separate them, and see if they congo? I just don't want them to break off over time, so I'm trying to figure out the best way to "handle" these now, before I end up losing them, or if I'm afraid over nothing. I'll probably allow the ones with no loose hair around them form into dread close by, but what about the ones that have plenty of loose hair around them? I kind of figured it would swallow the loose hair around it eventually, to thicken them up, but then again so could the dreads around that area too lol. I think I'm just being paranoid. I never have questions about my dreads, but I love them too much to lose any LOL!

On a side note, my tam came in! So exited (thank you SE) I'll be posting pictures of that along with my little mini babies :)

Do not use Goo Gone for wax removel


dread wax and dread kits recovery

:o sorry to hear about all of that, I used wax with my first set (against my first instinct a few years ago), and combed them out 6 months later, the inside of my dreadlocks were disgusting, i ended up cutting my hair just above my chin, I was so grossed out just picking my dreads apart. Goodluck on saving your dreads! I wish I had advice to give you, but I ended up so unhappy with mine I just got rid of them, until a few months ago. Hope you find a better way! :)

Can you seperate or split a dread?


crochet and dread tools recovery

If it's just because of how big it is, and don't like fatty's don't worry, i didn't want fat dreads when i started, but i have quiet a few. I haven't checked how long you've been dreading, but over time you produce more loose hair/grow more hair, which will result in new dreads, and will disguise the big ones after a while. Plus it will be easier, because you won't have a bunch of "regular" sized dreads to seperate, and eventually it will get so thick, you'll probably end up letting a few congo anyway :) Love your dreads for what they are doing, or have done, why turn back on the fat ones, just because they're less appealing? "dread discrimination" lol :p just kidding, but yeah, happy locking and much love <3 :D

Help! Save My Dreads

I'll deff try that recipe, thank you, i really need to go out and get tea tree, I'm gonna dye my hair, follow up with that, then blow dry, and start adding tea tree along with the oils i already use to my BS wash, (which i should have done months ago anyway lol) I'll let everyone know how it goes with a follow up tomorrow, if anyone has anymore advice, it will be greatly appreciated.. It's impossible to find anything on here, or google, that has to do with pregnant dreaded lice infested women haha.

Help! Save My Dreads

If i can use a dye, i might try that, but I've heard of regular mouthwash (brown), mayo (which i don't want anywhere near my dreads) and vinegar, anyone have an opinion on which to try for a follow up, for how long, and how many days after? If i can't get rid of them, I'm sadly going to have to brush them out and start over, to do a mild treatment, that's safe for the baby, and to be sure i get rid of all of them, but I want this to be a must do, last resort thing. I literally cried just thinking about putting a hair brush through my hair :(

Do you think if i throw a safe dye on my head for the min. amount of time, wash, throw vinegar in my hair, wrap it, then blow dry with a reg blow dryer on high heat, it would work? I really don't want to put vasaline in my dreads (ick). Will the vinegar for 10 mins condition my 3 month dreads too much? I could imagine if it would be hard for me to breathe under rubbing alcohol, it wouldn't be good on the baby either =\. and i just washed my dreads last night, i've never tried washing two nights in a row, should they be okay? I know I have a ton of pain in the ass questions, but this is a pain in the ass problem haha.

I don't think covering my head with rubbing alcohol is safe while pregnant because of the fumes, using a small amount for something is one thing, but completely surrounding my head? :(, man this blows so hard. Thank you for the link though =\

Help! Save My Dreads

Oh and I'm pregnant, so I'm looking for a safe way to get rid of them, which means if it means i have to comb out, and start over, just so i don't have to use strong chemicals to get them out, and can do a lighter treatment to be sure to get rid of them, sacrificing 3 months of my locking process, to keep harsh fumes away from my unborn son, is more important than using dangerous chemicals to get them out of my dreads. I know of Mayo in my hair, but i don't think it would be good enough because my hair is so thick, and matted, at my lovely, frizzy awkward stage <3 :(
