Using soap bar shampoo from Lush- not good for dreads


Dread Products

ACK! Really? My friend said it was fine to use it :( Hope I can get all the residue out...

Build up, how do I rid myself of this?


Dread Maintenance

I had this happen within the first couple months also. I think because my hair got so oily so fast that it happened. Do you have oily hair? How often are you washing? I find that if I wash less, I have more build up.

Introduce Yourself

You shouldn't use wax, or interlock. If you can, I'd suggest taking the interlocking out, and rid yourself of the wax.

If I wrap my dreads like this will they permanently become wavy like this?


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Oh okay, well I want to wrap a couple anyways, but I like them being wavy and loopy!! I used to always be obsessed with the "perfect" dreads but they are so nice when they are able to do what they want! :)

Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I want my dreads to become a bit wavy. Not all of them just a few for fun. If I wrap them in hemp like the picture attached, will this happen? Or will they only be wavy while being wrapped? (Yes I know these dreads are fake. )

What am I supposed to do with my dreads?


Dread Maintenance

Thanks so much! I am leaving them alone now :) I hope they can recover well.

First off, I agree agree with everyone on here who commented. 2nd learn to stop doing eveything that's bad for dreads! Dreads don't need any maintenece besides washing and separting. Once you learn to leave them be and recover from the damage they will knot up. Time and paitence are virtues when it comes to dreads!

Okay awesome!! Thanks so much. I'll be sure to do nothing but wash and separate from now on.

u undid the interlocking (feding the dread thru the root) u stopped crochet and root rubbing

well..youll have some internal damage but not too bad to worry about as long as u stopped

as far as traction alopecia it takes a long time to get severe so even if you are in the earlu stages u will recover

D: Have I done any damage yet? Or do you think I'm fine if I stop now?

watch this

thats from years of twisting but any forcing the roots to be too tight will lead to this

soaring eagle said:

hmm for some reason the pu=ics are loading very slow

must nbe my router

but ofcourse the roots lock on theor own burt bnev er should be tight to the scalp if u force em to be tighter then they want to be your causing traction on the scalp wich causes traction alopecia and slow but sure balding

if roots didnt dread

id have 1 inch of dreads at the tip and 5 ..no more like 15 feet of straight hair at the roots

wash and seperate thats all you need to do

youve harmed em enoughh already now u just got to leave m alone to recover

Your roots will never fully lock, due to the fact that they need to be strong enough to bear the weight of the dread. As far as the loose hairs, embrace them, as your dreads mature those loose ones will find a home. I would stop everything you're doing. Your hair has taken a beating. Just wash and separate and hopefully they'll fully recover. Good luck.
