My amazing revelation, thank you all dreadlockssite!


dreadlockssite appreciation

Your dreads look great!

I love this site too. After weeks of looking at different videos, products and websites, strangely enough the only one that doesn't tell you to use wax and hooks is this one. But I suppose this is the only one where no one's trying to sell you crap.

Thanks for the info, everyone!

Starting the journey of dreads


Introduce Yourself

You add about 3/4 tablespoons of baking soda to around 1 litre of warm water, pour it on your roots and dreads. Leave it for about 10 minutes. Rinse it, then add 3 capfulls of ACV to warm water and rinse with cold water.

No, it doesn't smell, but you can add a few drops of teatree oil or something to make it actually smell of something.

The discussion on amounts is here:http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/baking-soda-and-sea-salt-ratios

Alright thanks a bunch, what exactly is this baking soda and apple cider vinegar rinse? And does it leave your hair smelling like vinegar?

Starting the journey of dreads


Introduce Yourself

SE used Dr Bronners stuff. If you want a change, then do the Baking Soda and Apple Cider Vinegar wash that everyone seems to love on here (do not get it in your eyes, it stings like a bitch).

Wash it whenever you need to, but if it's more than 3 times a week, then try pushing back the days when you do wash it. Freezing cold rinses help with the ichyness.

Acceptance


General Talk

Easy. My partner wanted to shave her head. She knows I hate it, but I said "You're a grown woman, you're old enough to decide what to do with your body. I respect that like I know you'll respect my decisions".

MWUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Lol, manipulation.

Do what the hell you want. You're a grown woman and your dreads are fabulous. Tell your husband that if he doesn't shut up and accept it, there are lesbians out there who are willing to ;)

dreaducation, comprehensive guide to all things dready


Dreading Methods

I'm thirding the notion of SE writing a book. This site is outnumbered by websites and videos telling people to use wax and hooks on their dreads.

Gotta ask again. Do you do a BS+water wash first, and then a vinegar+water wash after? Or do you just mix it all up and hope for the best?

2 days in


Introduce Yourself

Start from the front and top to get them the same size. And make sure you have someone to do the back for you (I'm two weeks in and STILL not dreadlocked the back. lol)

Oh, and when you get to the end, palmroll then twist & rip the ends to stop them from coming loose.

Good luck :D

Baking Soda and Sea Salt ratios


Dread Maintenance

Thanks guys. I'm not sure it's working though. I wash it, and then it's itchy again 2 days later. :/

I know that, but I'm not sure how much a cup is.

So, is it around 5 tablespoons of BS to 1 litre of water?
