My sisters teacher (also has dreads) gave me vaseline to put in my dreads. Firstly, what do I do with it? and is it the same as wax? or can i use it to help my dreads without them going mouldy/disgusting?

wthf ok is she african american?

 its very dumb to use but could be used to prevent over drying of the scalp in african amerivcans but o no way in hell id put it in dreads she shouldnt either

give her a aloe pant and tell her thats much better and the vasolines not gonna be easy to get out not as bad as wax but ..yuck

 

 

Yeah, he is Nigerian :) his dreads are actuallly really nice, so I don't know if he uses the vaseline. Anyway I will NOT use it lol, goin all natural and don't want to mess it up :) Thanks for replying btw :)

that absolutely woulda been a mistake  its pertroleum based and slippery slimy

surprised hed recomendf it

except that he may have excessive dry scalp so uses it but u should recomend theres way beter options then petroleum  based stuff shae or aloew is better ideeas

 

Yes I agree with eagle.  Vaseline is way too greasy and heavy.  It's gunk up your head.

 

My favorite product is Urielpure Best Dreds .  It is all natural, stops any itch, and nourishes your scalp in a great way.

 

I also prefer an oil mix over vaseline if you are looking to make your own thing.

 

Fight the good fight!

Thanks for the reply :)

I don't know why he recommended it, he obviously thinks I have the same problem as him :)

I wouldn't suggest using vaseline on any kind of hair.  It leaves a build up, it is really thick and unfortunately a lot of hair care products geared towards African American are petroleum based.  You would be better off going the  natural route when it comes to the health of your dreads.

petroleum goes in your car,   never ever on your skin or your hair!  Why do people still buy petroleum jelly?
