Hey everybody! Im Ben. I just did my dreads yesterday. I decided on dreads almost 5 years ago. Did a little research, bought a kit from DreadHeadHQ, and thank goodness just left it sit and never used it. Here I am almost 5 years later and i'm tired of my boring straight hair, considering cutting it all off. Regain my interest in dreads and decide to go for it. Thankfully I did more research and did not use the old kit. I did use the DreadHeadHQ shampoo but thats all. After that I did twist and rip with no products. I was very concerned because my hair is super thinning and my hairline is receding and I just didn't know if it was gonna work out. I think it turned out good and i'm very happy with them. Now, my loose hairs are pretty crazy. I'm just concerned that with the amount of loose hairs I have, they are bound to grow into the dreads that aren't in that section. How bad is that really going to end up being for me? Also, is there any shampoo that I can buy from certain stores that is recommended? I just don't really want to have to order my shampoo online. That is last resort. I know there is a store in my area that used to sell to salons only but now its open to the public and they have tons of stuff. If there is any brand or store where its located that you can point me to I would be very greatful. Thanks!
