signs of hard water

  • Scale Build-up. Hard water allows soap to stick to shower doors, shower walls, tubs and faucets; which increases cleaning time and efforts.
  • Dry Skin. Hard water dries out skin and hair.
  • High Cleaning Costs. Excessive hardness levels cause homeowners to use increased amounts of soaps and detergents for cleaning and bathing.
  • Etching and Spotting. Glassware, pots and pans become scratched and have spotting due to hard water.
  • Damaged Appliances. Water heaters, pipes, faucets and dishwashers breakdown or fail when exposed to the daily effects of hard water.

welcome your dreads feel weird for 2 reasons bronners in hard water and crochet (huge mistake the crochet was)

bronners wont work in hard water u need these www.dreadlockshampoo.com

tho u may need a antoi residue like nutragena antoi residue or suave clarifying..only once to remove buildup

crochet was a huge mistake but luckily it looks like u didnt do it too much just throw the hook in the trash

Welcome to the community and to the best site on the web for healthy dreadlocks Jarrett. Have a great journey.....oh yes, you have very hard water, here is a map for you to see, so that really limits your choices. A member on this site created dread shampoos & bars that work fantastic in hard water, I have hard well water and they work great for me...Dreadlockshampoo.com.....peace.

Welcome. Be careful with Dr. Bronners though. While it's become the go-to soap for locks, most people aren't aware that if you have hard water, it doesn't work well. Castile soaps don't rinse out well in hard water, and will leave tons of residue over time.

In Co. you may have harder water because of the mountains out there. It all depends on what watershed you're in and where your water comes from.

As for palm rolling... Don't bother. If you only do it sparingly, it doesn't do anything to create lasting knots. It will make them look neater for a few hours. But once you sleep or wash it all undoes itself. If you do it enough to see progress, you are actually severely damaging your roots. I did it for only 2 weeks in the very beginning. And 7 years later I am still trying to fix the damage

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! My picture is from the day I finished putting them all in, so I'm much messier now!
Barrellady & Baba Fats, yeah I know about the salt. I spray my dreads in the mornings when I know I'm planning on washing them later. In fairness to my hair, I doubt even swimming in the sea and then not washing it after could do more damage to my hair. I have the finest most easily damaged hair I have ever seen on anyone. Which is part of why I wanted dreads, sick of hair that I can't do anything with!

Welcome. What are you washing with? And Barrellady is right about the sea salt spray. it's great. But it can be over used

Welcome to the community Seryph and congratulation on your journey to dreadlocks. I see that you started the same way I did, I've made a post that can help you along the way: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/just-starting-out-what-to-expect?xg_source=activity

When using the sea salt, make sure to wash it out by two hours or it will start to dry out your hair, and that takes months to repair if it happens. Enjoy the ride you will have for the next few months, it really is a blast...peace
