Fabulous on the clean. Thank you much
Get your hair nice and soaked, then get the bar wet. Scrub your scalp with it till you are nice and lathered up. Don't scrub your locks themselves, just your scalp. Let it sit for a few minutes, and rinse it off well. If you don't use much, it may leave some residue. If your hair is really lathered up, you'l be just fine. As you rinse, it'll run through your locks, cleaning them
Anybody inform me how to use the dread bar for shampooing?
We actually have a whole shops page on here where people sell their wares. Tons of people make tams
Thanks guys. Are there any websites you guys recommend beside etsy to find wool tams? Are tams a positive or negative thing for dreads
The reason you hear a lot of whatnot to do and yet still see round locks is because locks round themselves out over time. There's no secret we're hiding and keeping to ourselves.
Palm rolling gently, will only make them look clean for a few hours. It doesn't do anything lasting. So it's really not worth it.
rolling does nothing at all unless u do it enough to cause harm flat dreads tend to get round over time when u flatten it 1 way then another it gets round
just leave em alone
dreads shouldnt cause a receding hairline unless tuied back too tightly or heavy with wax buildup
theysd also need to be tied back almost all the time
I have seen a lot of what nots to do yet i still a lot of people with round dreads. I was wondering is any maintenance such as palm rolling dangerous if you do it carefully? the dreads on the back of my head are flattened from sleeping on em and some times i roll them when i am bored. Even if i don't feel tension on my scalp am i still damaging my dreads? I love em and never want to have my hair just fall out. also do dreads increase receding hairlines? from weight i mean
Thank you for the info, what a relief!
if it didnt you should be worried all hairs somewhat elastic..way more so when wet.. a good reputible stylisht would testthe elasticity before doing real harmful things cause once its not elastic it will break with a light p]pull elasticity acts like shock absorbsion
and without shocks on your car the pu]otholes could damageyour internal organs and maye even brake bones
practices like interlocking remove all elasticity at those points thats why they are so much more likely to break
Hello, question here, my locks are about a month and a half old, Im worrid gets elasticey and stretchy when its wet, is this bad? what can i do to help my hair? please & ty
Thank you Soaring eagle. I tried Shampoo some 2 weeks ago, it was nice but my hair hardens and dries out fast. I have a thick African hair and the B.Soda softens it but shampoo hardens it. This brown colour puts me off so then i will try shampoo again. I think you are right about the sun, cos we have plenty of it here in the Northern Nigeria. Thanks.
baking soda does strip away dyes and color treated air coloring but shouldnt change natural colors sun however can certainly lighten dreads but maybe u can try a dread shampoo?
Hi guys, question: is it normal for dreads to change colour? I've been using the Baking Soda wash almost a year now, my dread is one and half years old, i wash my hair 3 times a week with the B.Soda. My dread is changing colour from complete black to now, brown. Is this normal or am doing the B.Soda thing too much? I also spray me hair everday with a mixture of water, carrier oils and essential oils. Am i doing somthing wrong?
Don't worry when the tips come undone. It's all part of the process. Every time you redo them, it set your progress back
Need dread advice! i did the hole twist and rip thing being to impatient for them to occur naturally and now that they are all done they are all starting to slowly come undone at the tips i just keep twisting and ripping them to keep them in
okeh okeh, no need to jump on ma trunk lol
rolling your dreads so much as in palm rolling, time and time again, day after day, will result in hair getting pulled out, hair that may never grow back. please, do not palm roll because clean n tidy dreads make no sense. dreadlocks are a beautiful mess, much like a genius's office is an organized mess.
doesnt really matter palm rolling does nothing permenant 9except harm) the effects of palm rolling last hours to a day or so no longer and its completely pointless but if u do it lot can cause permenant harm
