A bit late, but welcome shame you didn't find the site sooner, but at least you've started over and can see your dreads progress naturally. Keep us updated and if you have any questions or need any advice, this is the best place for it.
WELCOME TO DREADLOCKSSITE may peace be with u along ur journey
Welcome to the community Bianca and to your new journey with dreadlocks. The best place to start on here is with the dreaducation sections at the top of the site. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask, we will help you. Below is a map so you can see what your water type is. With soft water, just about any dread shampoo or bar can be used, but with hard water, many of those will not work properly and will slowly leave behind a residue build up. We can help you find the best one for you if needed....enjoy the site and your journey...peace
welcome wish you found us b4 making the crochet mistake
Welcome to the community of Dreadlockssite :D! Wishing you much love and peace on your dreadlocking journey as well as your personal journeys.
Welcome. The BS wash is great, but if you don't have naturally oily hair, it raises your scalp and hairs pH level too high. This fries your hair, making it brittle and overly dry. It also causes your scalp to become itchy and flaky over time.
In order to stop this, get some Apple Cider Vinegar. mix about 1 tsp:5 cups of water. Pour it on, and rinse it off right away. It doesn't make your hair smell bad at all. But if you're worried, you can mix in some oils.
The DHHQ soaps are actually really bad for locks, and for your health. they contain many ingredients that are 100% known to cause caner in different organs, just from skin exposure. In fact, that shampoo was never designed for dreadlocks, in the first place. It's a hunting shampoo, and was only designed to be used a handful of times a year
