Water rinses between washing?


Dread Maintenance

Hello.I have naturally curly hair, before I decided to start my dread journey I would rinse my hair on days in between washing, by doing so it would define my ringlets and natural curls.So being fresh to the journey I was wondering if rinsing with water inbetween washes would help tighten baby dreads, since it seemed to make it curl on itself when I wasnt trying to lock up.Do you think this will help? or hurt? or make no difference on the locking process?THank you for your time and wisdom.

Acne due to dreads?


General Questions

Hey Meg,
I too noticed my forehead breaking out, I'm pretty sure it was the acv. I don't know if that's possible, but I was using a bit more than I was supposed to and my forehead broke out pretty soon after I started using it. I've since scaled back the amount I use and I make sure to scrub my forehead with a cleanser and it seems to help. I haven't done any research on if acv can cause break outs or not. I do have sensitive skin, so it could have something to do with that.

Just my 2 cents.

What do I do with long strays?


Dread Maintenance

thanks for the feedback :) My thinner stray in the picture is now gone, he left almost as quickly as he came..but the bigger longer stray, he's very sturdy and I did in fact give it a name! (Andy Warhol) There is a definite matted knot in it, so I think he's here to stay. Thanks again for the feedback. It's appreciated.

What do I do with long strays?


Dread Maintenance

I'm 10 days away from my 6 month mark. (other than sections I've seen no real progress) I'm starting to see and feel these long, thin, very straight stray hairs popping out. They are significantly longer than the rest of my hair, which leads me to believe that they are thin strands trying to escape my head, but are hanging on by a thread? they were originally done with T&R but all of that came undone soon after it was done.

They look ridiculous, I feel like they are too fragile to last the process of getting sucked up into a dread, so do I leave them alone? or just help them escape?

One of them is secured, but still looks ridiculous because it's so much longer than the rest of my hair.

Hey guys, I'm sorry if there is already a discussion for this, but I've been trying to subscribe to all the members on this site who do dreadlock journeys and update videos on youtube. I find everyone's journey is so unique and I think we have a lot to learn from each other. If it's not too much of a bother can you reply with your youtube link and I'd be happy to subscribe.

my link is http://www.youtube.com/brianpremo
it's half my dread journey and half my music.

I hope you are all doing well!

Dreads look like they are filled with dirt...


Help! Save My Dreads

Since you have your dictionary out, you should check out the definition of 'asshole'

THAT IS SO STRANGE! I WONDER WHY THE CLAY IS MAKING YOUR DREADS LOOK LIKE DIRT!?

let us go back to fifth grade earth science and rememeber what clay is..

clay
/kl/
Noun

1) A stiff, sticky fine-grained earth, typically yellow, red, or bluish-gray in color and often forming an IMPERMEABLE layer in the soil....

2) Sediment with particles smaller than silt, typically less than 0.00016 inch (0.004 mm).

Synonyms
mud - loam - earth - argil

my advice would be next time do a little research before you start any project that you intend to find success and satisfaction in... This is obviously a terrible idea from the start. Wish you the best of luck though!

Question about BS wash using distilled/boiled water


Dread Maintenance

Hey gang.

As a person who has to deal with hard water I keep an eye out for any washing tips. A couple times I've seen people say to use distilled, boiled, filtered water to soften hard water for washing your dreads. In those discussions it seems like people are saying just to use that water to mix with the backing soda. My question is - even if you mix your backing soda in now-soft-water, you still rinse it out with hard water coming out of the shower head. It seems like the rinse out is where the major issue is stemming from in the first place. I'm wondering if it really makes a difference trying to to soften the mix water, when the rinse water will still be hard.

Natural Shampoo


Dread Maintenance

Have you tried baking soda/ apple cider vinegar wash? That makes my baby dreads feel the cleanest, I do also use dreadlocksshampoo.com shampoo, it's second best, but sometimes I feel it doesn't wash out all the way, I think thats due to our hard water here.

In natural dreads,where in a section of hair does the knot tend to form first?


General Questions

Thanks for the replies! I'm a week shy of my 5 month mark, I started with T&R but 95% of those came completely undone, I got pretty discouraged so I just stopped paying attention, except for monthly videos. Last night I was looking really close and I swear I see a new, natural, legit knot, I was instantly excited, but I wasn't sure if it was just a glorified curl so I tried not to get too excited. It's actually in the lower/mid section of my section. So I was just curious if this is a spot that would knot first. Again, thank you again for the replies. It is much appreciated.

General Questions

Hey gang,
I was wondering, when taking the natural method, where in your section do you usually see the first sign of a real dread knot forming? Would it tend to start near the scalp? the middle? the end/tip of the section? Or is it different for everyone?

Thanks!
