i have a question??? i di something silly the other day i saw this video on utube about how to blunt the ends of your locks with a crochet hook. well i did this to about three of them and it shortened thm like crazy and made them look silly. anyway i hate it and im never touching a crochet hook again unless im gonna make a hat or something but i need to undo what iv just done. can anybody tell me how i can fix the recent damage iv done to those poor three little stumpy locks that iv created??
is it true you use 1/2 a cup of baking soda to every gallon of water?
no no thats nowhere near right haha ok in 1 cup water add 1-2 tablespoons baking sioda (u probly need more then 1 cup water) with hair already wet and after stiring to break up clunmps pour it over your head and let soak 10 min (no scrubbing) then rinse then if your dreads are mature use 1-2 tablespoons per cup water of ascv if young use way way less now pour that over your head if dreads are young rinse imediately otherwise wait 3 min then rinse
am I washing with baking soda properly? I wet dreads, then sprinkle some powder in hands making a bit of paste and spreading it around. like shampoo.
I also tried the acv rinse, idk about that either, i rinsed out the soda then poured about 20 oz over my head slowly then rinsed with water. wow, super conditioned my hair w/out jacking up dreads.
Is this the right way?
if u can aitr dry u should if iu must blkow dry do it gently in short quick bursts ..like dont just blow till dry do a lil wait a few do a lil wait a few etc and keep it on low
while starting the process of natural dreads, is it safe to blow dry hair after a no-poo shower? or recommended to let your hair air dry?
yea aloes a conditioner use it when they are too dry ..when mature after u wash them go play in the sunshine
@lenoreosorio, i have only had mine a year and a half but i dont put anything in mine. Aftern i wash my dreads i let them air dry a few hours then blowdry them the rest of the way dry so they dont mold. ive never done the aloe thing but i think its for more mature dreads not too sure. what are you washing them with?
@ kyle nutter, i think you can go to a vitamin shop and get the all natural 100% aloe. good luck with your findings=)
hey my dreads are 4 months old an i would like to know after i wash my dreads do you use aloe on them after every wash or just leave them be wat should i do with themafter washing??
I don't have an aloe plant :( nor could i raise one.
I have soft , fine , caucasian hair that doesn't tangle all too easy . My ends are all whispy, not blunt . Backcombing , palm rolling, twist 'n ripping , and some crocheting ( never again .. letting my locks recover now ) were all used . As well as a teeny bit of Knotty Boy tightening gel to help it all cooperate :3 I started my dreadlock journey 8 days ago , and I was just looking for tips on washing , soaking , future root tightening , ect . :) Love&Light <3
Kyle : try an aloe plant ! (:
I read somewhere on this website that 100% aloe (not the stuff that is used on sunburnt skin) is good for dreads. Where can you find such aloe?
what is the difference between dr bronners mayleees gardens and knotty boy shampoo bars?
how does one ACTUALLY "separate"? is it just a matter of pulling the hair apart every day? or is there a method to keeping them apart (besides beads and such)
well therers no reason to wait to wash cause u were using wax u should comb them out imediately use extremely hor=]t water and dawn dish soap and remove all traces of wax then start over wax frreee then wash with dr bronners mayleees gardens or baking soda ab]=nd acv id recomend going natural or twist n rip but no matter what u do no wax whatsoever there is nio ammount of waxx thats ok to use none u want clean hair wax free entirely
