Hey SE awesome site so much good information, i just wanted to ask you a couple things. firstly i know you should only wash your dreads every three to four days but when people say wash are they referring to shampooing or just getting their hair wet? also i have really straight hair and i know it is possible for it to dread but what would you say is an average timeline i know everyones hair is different but I'm just dealing with a lot of impatience and curiosity as to when i should start seeing results. anyways let me know :)
Hi! Thanks for your comment. I have only tried the non residue shampoos sold in sotres. I been researching teatree oils and such.. heard that was good. My concern, is with my job I am around alot of grease. I need to wash my hair more then one would say to with dreads. I am worried that there will be odors in my locks. I have never used a wax in my life so i know nothing about them. PLEASE AND THANK YOU!! =) <3
I am planning to let them form naturally; All I'm going to do is wash them and separate them. And right now I would say my hair is about 2 or 2.5 inches long? I don't have a ruler or anything handy at the moment
Oh, definitely. At this point, I'm taking your advice before anyone else's. I picked up a 100% vegan clarifying shampoo that is supposed to remove grease, dirt and grime from hair. Would that be okay to use in addition to BS/ACV soaks and Wax-B-Gone?
Bless up brethren.. Like evey vessel on earth we are called chosen to walk on a path for a purpose greater than oneself. but like every jourrney, there are moments of hardships to test the traveller. I believe the universe wants me to be here 2 ask you for help with my dreadlock journey.. My dreads are thinning at the roots.. I used wax to lock them cz my hair texture is too soft, now they have grown slighly thick but, now they are 'breaking' wher th wax ends.. Also have some thread crotched in some of them.. I fear they may fall off.. Please help..?
Unfortunately, yes, a ton of products were used. : [ I've used wax, not knowing the harm it does to my hair, since I first got my dreads nearly a year ago. There is sooo much waxy residue in my poor hair, it's awful. But lucky for me, you guys are here with your vast knowledge and awesome products. I purchased Wax-B-Gone, and I'm typing with it on my head as we speak. It's my second application of it and already helping. You guys may have saved my hair. I can't thank you enough.
Hi, I just wanted to say I love this site. It's where I found the confidence to let my hair be natural. Today is the first day in many years that I have not used any product in my hair. I love it, it feels great. Oh and I have soft water, I'm assuming that is a good combination with bronners. And thanks again!
Hello and thank you for the welcome. Well, to answer your question, I am half black. I only recently few months back started using JML. Before that, I used Dr. B. The first time I used JML, i noticed a great difference and been using it since! And thank you, he's a mastiff!
