My mother's mindset makes me sad :(
Life Issues Facing Dreads
dont worry, its a normal mother thing. I have the exact same issues with mine you're not alone! <3
go for it whenever I bleached mine in the first 3 months, and right now I have pink and purple hair that stuff has conditioner in it so I suggest if you want crazy colors wait until your dreads are around 9 months and a bit locked up I love dying my dreads, they feel so soft afterwards! but make sure to get all of the dye out, having that stuff sit inside is really bad
I was using bars from my 3rd month, then became lazy in my 10th so used liquid again, and then realized its actually kinda bad xD well not bad, I just dont want super tiny hard locks... plus they were getting super heavy. After once with the bar again my hair kinda opened if that makes sense and they unraveled a little and became a little longer and less hard so I would say around 3/4 months use the bars, unless you want your hair to keep shrinking!
With Vicki's shampoo, I love it and still use it, but don't use the locking up shampoo after your locks have locked up... as silly as that sounds I'm now in my 11th month and used the liquid for 1 month (I was too lazy to use the bars) they now just shrink and get actually hard (they are locking too much if that's even possible I think...) so stick with the bars after the initial process is over
I dont have any real questions, just havent been on the site for a while so wanted to spark a random discussion
The question is; how long does it take for your dreads to dry? :D also what method so it can be compared later The day would be hot and sunny, perfect condition for dreads to air dry
Mine are 10 months free forming, and it takes around 3-4 hours!!
yeap I get that a lot too, mainly from hairdressers though which I always find funny. The other day an african woman in the subway came, looked at my hair, and wouldnt stop touching it! she was fascinated with all the twists and bumps since hers were dead straight xD was interesting
