aw thank you so much for that info. and i totally agree with you, after all these years, i'm still learning things
about some of the products i use. therefore, i'm only washing and conditioning ever so often and i notice a huge difference of them locking at the roots much better. that's great info and much appreciated
Ive taken them out . I dont want to cause any issues and im a complete NEWB to dreading so i dont want to do anything bad. the only thing is i wash my hair twice a week and right now im using regular shampoo that is a Low Poo brand.. but its not Dreading Shampoo... i wont be able to get any of that until July or so... using regular shampoo while my dreads are still fresh.. is that going to cause alot of troubles? or you think ill be alright?
Awesome thank you so much! =) I had the Bands in because i only have about 6 dreads in my hair just on the side to show a little something different.. when these are done im going to decide if i want to continue and do my whole head or just have a few.... still take them out? even when all my other hair isnt dreaded? and thank you for the shampoo recommendation! i appreciate that.
Hello and thank you for the Welcome :) So right now ... my dreads were started with the Twist and Rip Method and i have them seperated with little rubberbands.... What should i do then? Just leave them be? Im currently trying to find a good residue free shampoo that is also natural/organic or as close to that as possible.... Thank you for your help !
Hi. Thanks for the welcome. I don't have dreads. For a long time now dread lovers have worn my beads but I've never reached out to complete the outstretched hand until recently. I was glad to see that you have a place for shop links. I submitted my url this morning. Wow, this site is a feast!
Yes... in fact, after reading your entire site here (thank you!), I showed my hubby the part about over-twisting and leading to baldness! He got creeped out and said only I touch his hair now, LOLs... I sent him an invite to join as well, so you'll see him soon! I think the gel worked for the beginning, and it seems to wash out nicely (no residue). We've stopped twisting for the most part because the roots are locking up for him nicely :D His hair is really fine and silky from Cuban/Jamaican ethnicity... I was worried when we first twisted, but he's doing great now... and natural! :D Much love!
True, the Jamaican Mango & Lime gel is for African-textured hair (my hubby's), however I use a very small amount to tame my front locks, the rest are natrualish TnR! I'm very excited to share my journey with all of you. Your ropes are truly amazing! Be blessed!
