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.

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

Extensions


Dreading Methods

Ok. Well, I'll leave it a year or something and if they've grown enough by then, then I wont bother with extensions.

Thanks so much for the info <3

Extensions


Dreading Methods

I have to ask -and I know I'm probably going to get my head bitten off for this- but how would any of you suggest adding extensions without crocheting or glue? I've lost a lot of length and I cant tie my hair up anymore (with will probably be a problem if I get a job in catering or using machinery, and I doubt any potential employers would let me wear a hat indoors. Plus, I love having long hair, and I want colourful hair without using bleach, hence extensions. :D)

My dreads are new, so would undoing part of them, then somehow dreadlocking the extension in help? I really dont want to use anything damaging.

<<<<<<<<Oh, and do the products on this sidebar actually work?

loose hairs. let them be? or is there something i can do


Introduce Yourself

Thanks guys, mine are messy at the moment, especially since I just washed them for the first time.

I found wearing a hat and wetting them a bit helps tame the frizzies when I'm out. :D

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 ;)

neglect


Dreading Methods

Damn, I wish I would have gone with natural-formed dreads now. But I think I like them properly sectioned though. I think the most important thing is that they're clean, looked after and allowed to grow properly. (That and I dont have patience to let my hair knot on it's own, since it rarely knots anyway.)

I'll leave the hook alone from now on ;)
