is suave naturals daily clarifying some what ok to use?


General Talk

I personally don't like dawn for my hair either, it left my dreads feeling brittle.

Have you tried Dr. Bronners? I bought mine at a local grocery store in the organic/healthfoods section.

Just use baking soda and apple cider vinegar! Its very inexpensive.

Suave shampoo DOES have conditioners in it that will "keep your hair tangle free"

Anyone who never separated?


Dread Maintenance

I have a friend who was taught that in order to dread you had to wear a tam for as long as possible.Then once your hair is one huge clump, you separate rip it apart into sections... that way you can decide how big you want the sections to be. Seems painful to me lol

Oils for bs/acv wash


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I don't use more then 3 drops of each essential oil at a time... those little tiny bottles last me a few months.

Tea Tree Oil, Rosemary Oil and Patchouli Oil would be most beneficial in my opinion.

Concerns About Neglect Dreads


General Questions

My neglect dreads vary in size, some are really thin and others are really thick.

The thickness of your dreads depends on how often you separate them.

How old were you when you started your dreads?


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Personally, my age had nothing to do with my dreads.

I will admit... I'm a control freak. Every aspect of my life I've been able to manipulate and control, and now with my dreads I'm learning to let go and let it be.

Also, I realized that people with long hair will work to keep their hair brushed and tangle free, and my hair would knot up very quickly... it was to the point where I would have to brush my hair every day for more then an hour in order to keep knots away. So I was ready to just give that up.
and I love that dreadlocks are like natural works of art that change every day. They kinda have a mind of their own lol

Pomade in the early days.


Dread Maintenance

I used dawn dish soap yesterday to wash my hair. I took a huge pitcher and filled it about halfway with a dish soap/water mix and I stuck the ends of my hair into the pitcher and let them soak for a few minutes. then I poured the entire thing over my head and let that sit for about 10 minutes and washed it out with hot hot water.
After I got out of the shower I noticed that my hair seemed more brittle and and the ends were wanting to fold up into my dreads.. so I took some scissors and trimmed the ends off all my dreads (not even an inch worth,) just trimmed off the super long frizzy split ends) and now it looks a lot healthier.

The dish soap wash seemed to get some of the lint out but there is still a little bit left in there so I will probably do it again tonight.... although the fact that it made my hair feel more brittle did worry me;

My Timeline - 5 months


Member Journals and Timelines

Thank you for all the positive input!!
Actually my hair has shrunk, I know the pics don't demonstrate that very well but I have a picture (not on the computer) of me a few days before dreading and my hair is down to about the bottom of my rib cage. now the longest hairs are about 2-3 inches shorter. If you look at my month 1 pic... then back down to my month 5 pic, you can see how much has shrunk
