Sounds cool. Check out the forums for tips on how to go about bleaching and dying, though. It's been ages since I've dyed my hair. From what I gathered, some dyes tend to condition your hair a lot. If you only plan to bleach and dye your roots, be aware that that section of hair may take longer to knot up because of this
welcome but u want no products especialy not waxes!
Beeswax is even worse than the wax that KB and DHHQ sell. It's harder to get out, too.
Using it to jump start the process will only make them look like locks right away. It won't help the locking process begin. It'll just prevent it from happening
Welcome and Happy Dreading.
Always, Hippie Love
Welcome. What "products" are you thinking about using? Gels/waxes/creams do nothing to help locks. Many times they actually prevent locks from maturing. And tools that people talk about are only good for destroying locks.
Be careful what you decide to put in your hair. Wax NEVER washes out in normal soap and water. Because it is a hydrocarbon, it NEEDS a detergent and lots of scrubbing to get it out
Welcome to the community. Do not use ANY products. They do nothing good for dreads, even if the companies say they do. Dreads do not need products to form. Just wash regularly, separate when the sections grow to big or join together and that is it. Couldn't be any simpler.
Hey Justin, no worries about loose hairs at 6 months. I still have loose hairs at 15 months, they can take up to 2 years to mature, just depends on the hair, what you wash with etc, some people mature in 1, we are all different, so don't worry about a thing. What are you washing with now?
When you use the baking soda wash, acv rinse, are you scrubbing your hair or letting BS do its thing all on its own?
Welcome. Eagle's right. Aloe will only help prevent your hair from locking. It's great if you need to make your hair look neat for a special occasion, but otherwise it will be too conditioning
Welcome to the community. What shampoo are you using exactly? It must be residue free, firstly. Secondly, aloe is very conditioning, which is not the best for baby dreads.
