Help! Save My Dreads

Fight with traction alopecia. I need a help.


Help! Save My Dreads

FemalePheromones: Looks good. The fact that they are just hanging in place rather than being pulled back will definitely slow down the traction alopecia. If you had tied them u0 like that from the start I'm sure it wouldn't have got as severe as it has. As for washing. I do every 2 or 3 days which ends up being 3 times a week. I haven't washed with shampoo for a few weeks now I just rinse with water in the shower. The main thing is making sure they have time to dry before you go to bed. When I turn off the shower I tip my head forward and make sure all my hair hands down in front of me and then shake my head from side to side to "spin" the water out and along to the tips. Then I get out the shower and lay a towel over my head and gently press it against my hair for about 10 seconds just to get rid of the surface water (I don't move the towel at all just hold it in place) then leave it damp to dry of its own accord. I usually shower at about 6pm which is plenty of time to dry before I go to bed. If I'm busy and have to shower any later I will tie my hair up in the shower to keep it dry. Just make sure you don't tie it up while it's wet. Leave it down to dry by itself and then keep it down when you go to bed. Your sreads will feel great when you wake up after having the freedom to move around in the night.

6 pm? i can't wash mine after 2 pm and have them dry by sunrise even with a blow dryer

2.5 months in and LOVING the journey - also, hat question!


General Questions

well those hooks and pulling in loose hairs create more loose hairs (by breaking them) 

yours look good  compared to most started in a salon  with a hook  but yea looks like you have  lil extra frizz from it but nothing to worry about

and heres the thing they never told ya.. the looser they are to start the faster they dread..

they gotta move around loop in on themselves and yes get a lil wild

if you looked closely at mine they have a soft fuzz covering every inch of them. but from just a foot away you only see dreads no frizzy fuzz (except on my scalp as i get older seems the greying parts around the hairline don't dread as easy) that you can see but its just part of a mane

i find the cleaner and softer they are te more fuzzy the actual lengths of them are but thats what gives them softness  often crocheted dreads are described as scratchy like steel wool (ll the hairs are pulled in but broken rough edges everywhere) and when squeezed have a squeaky feel 9(broken hairs grinding on eachother) instead of just firm sponginess

so really frizzy dreads are just cleaner dreads 

i d use the dreadlockshampoo.com liquid like 1 wash every few months and gets a dozen new baby dreads form (and have to separate all the rest so i don't congo any more then i have)  thats really the only time i ever have to separate anymore

yikes see they don't know what they are talking about was the hook used to pull the whole dread through the roots? 

your hair needs to be washed a minimum of weekly, every 3-4 days is even better 

the more you wash the faster they lock.

what are you washing with? did she use any products (especially wax)

 crochet was a mistake but they don't look as bad as most crocheted dreads you might have lucked out there! just never crochet them again its extremely damaging.  typically 1 use delays dreading by 6 months nd takes 3 years to recover..but yours don't look excessively tight and stiff so don't think you'll have that issue

Does getting your hair wet everyday slow down neglect dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

trust us.. there is read up on wax on here there a whole hell of a lot of evidence including 1  of the biggest wax pushers facing hundreds of his victims. then coming back to us asking us how o solve the problem he caused for a decade. wax is really evil stuff it is dread death only 1% of waxed dreads lasted beyond 3-4 years 95% were chopped in the 1st year  about 5 years ago literally 1/2 the people that joined lost 1-6 sets of dreads due to wax.. now its getting closer to 1 in 200 or 300 that made the wax mistake

read up on it here i would guess 5 years back more then 1/2 the posts involved problems with wax

in fact all the problems caused by crochet  ae epidemic simply because  everyone knows to avoid wax but they for some reason think crochets a better alternative (prior to wax b one that might have been true but now that wax can be removed without cutting the dreads crochets far worse)

our 1st post when we were just figuring out how to remove wax  (ineffectively at 1st) had millions of hits that 1st year

it was so bad at 1st we had people volunteering to go around the country collecting chopped off waxed dreads  for the purpose of dumping them in front of dreadheadhq and knottyboy .. enough to bury the buildings

people were so pissed about their dreads being ruined they wanted to make a huge protest

the debate we held on here .. was watched and discussed in real time on 5 or 6 of the other mostly honest sites 

it was such a big problem that people were organizing to defeat it

thankfully wax has been nearly stomped out of existence. even the most unethical locticians warn not to use it

in fact

1 girl, a locticians inuk warned her to never use wax.. and proceeded to pour liquid latex..black liquid latex (yes rubber) over her blond hair twist it into sticky clumps and call that deads

the people on this site will never steer you wrong  cause we have  the most experience as we dreaded together as a community. learning from eachother whats best...and..especially whats worse.

we have seen horrrors from wax like babafats who his hair kinda melted  came out in hadfuls like he had cancer..just from wax.. another woman (salns did everything wrong you can do wrong including burning and cutting off loops) she had 10,000 dollars in medical bills.. all due to infections caused by wax

whats worse a kid on fb.. had maggots eating a pussy scalp cause of wax..  people have needed surgeries because of it 

granted a ll on 1 wont cause you to need surgery but that dread wont dread it will harden trapping dirt and water and it will start to rot from the inside

be glad you only made the mistake on 1 or 2.. but save those 2 and get the wax out

i don't think you will find any active members today that used it so you'll have to dig back into the past and see for yourself
