What do you wash with?


Dread Maintenance

I was using Dr Bronner's and the water in my location is soft, my hair straight and anyways it left me residues. I don't know why.

Then I started bs/acv and on the first wash, the bs ended up super soapy (I guess were all the Dr Bronner's residues). I used acv and buuum, after month and a half of not brushing, it seems it super conditioned my hair to the point that one week later I passed a brush through and I had any knot.

I decided to next wash put less acv on my mixture, and anyways... My hair feels soft and "oily" at certain point, and it's kinda funny because back then before I tried to freeform, my hair tendency was to be dry.

So I just read a message you posted to someone to use acv just once a week. I'm gonna try that. If doesn't work, I'm gonna try twice per month. If it doesn't work, maybe by that time I would be able to buy some bottles of that dreadlocks shampoo to be sent overseas.

Messy Stage?


Dread Maintenance

Just embrace it.

You should see my pictures, hehehe. Mine are extremely messy and more since I started with crochet method (I'm going for my 5th month dreadiversary in 2 weeks approximately).

Most part of the time I let my locs to fly free and just when I go outside and I have to look "nice" I just use a piece of fabric I use as a hairband and nothing else. You can try with that :)

We just have to be patient with them, in the end they are gonna look pretty, each one with their own personalities, they are gonna be unique.

Pros and cons on dyed dreads?


Introduce Yourself

Yep, it's a hard decision.

I would like also coloured tips by when mine mature. But I do think it seriously because bleaching might cause a considerable damage on my dreads. In that case, maybe I would choose to add some dread wraps to add colour to them.

I've seen some videos of people who bleached their tips and they had no problem. But as Soaring Eagle says, it's tricky. Not all hairs are the same... and mine is one of those hard to bleach.

When I started my journey, I had bleached tips, but as soon as my dreads started to change, the body of the dread ate all the bleached part.

You might try before getting dreads, because in that way you would be able to wash the bleach well and put other stuff in your hair to make it recover a bit. But after you start your dreads it also might happen your dreads eat all the coloured part, as they might not :P you can try.

And try vegan dyes... also as say SE, if you do baking soda and ACV, it would take super easy the dye. So you might get in that case an anti-residue shampoo.

Natural Hair Dyes


General Questions

I think grey colour looks amazingly breathtaking. But talking about vegan colours, I used Manic Panic on my bleached tips. It kinda fades easily in me, since I wash my hair 3 times per week. The thing I like about those is the wide selection of cool colours they have.

I am waiting for my dreads to mature, so I maybe would bleach again the tips and dye them... but this time I would give a shot to one called Directions. I would love to have different tones of purple.

Those brands are vegan and don't damage the hair.

A up, how we doin?


Introduce Yourself

Hello. Welcome!.

I also have super straight hair that I think is really hard to dread naturally. I started with backombed and crochet 4 months ago and I haven't done anything, just separate them once in a while (that I also hope doing it correctly). And I know I'm hard to dread since I left some side bangs and they are straight as hell, haha.

Anyways, will be good to see pictures of your dreads!. Have a nice day.

My timelineee!


Member Journals and Timelines

Wow!. Loved your timeline!.

Mine also have gotten shrunk really crazy :s and the top layer look super messy. I had bleached tips and the dreads ate almost all of them, blunting the tips naturally. Take ages to dry, but I also wanted my hair do their thing.

Also love the colour!. I so hope for mine to mature and grow, I want to dye the tips again :)
