Sleeping with Locs

Thanx, Brandi! I moreorless use a scrunchy loosely. As I said, when wearing it loose I sweat on my hair so much & it's all in my face. Also, can wearing it in a ponytail & attaching fake dreads do harm?

I live in Las Vegas and am very hot blooded. I had always been in the habit of putting my hair up in a pony tail when I slept too, a lot cooler and my hair wasn't in my face. I read on here a couple months into my journey that your hair should be kept down while sleeping so that it tangles more and helps the process. I started wearing my hair down at night and have noticed a big difference. The ponytail bands have a tendency to get stuck in the hair and rubbers will melt into your hair. If I pull it back like to cook or do dishes I use a scrunchy. It's a lot easier to take out, and in my opinion a lot less damaging...I keep it real loose though. I hope this helped some. Good Luck!

I, also, am wondering, if with wearing elastic bands for ponytail dreads, about attaching fake dreads to this without harm, while natural locks are growing?...

Baking Soda / Acv rinse frequency


Dread Maintenance

Hey! I'm 3 mos into my journey, too! I use this baking soda soak with ACV rinse, instead of shampoo (per advice this site). My hair is fine & thin & knots easily & I don't have to do any scrubbing with this method, as to disturb development...plus, my hair & scalp feel better than with using shampoo. By the way, I'm white & 59 YRS OLD!!!! Always a real cool chic!!

Sleeping with Locs


Dread Maintenance

Started my locs 3 mos ago. Sometimes sleep with cap, but I live in a hot, humid area & sweat so much - will this harm my locs? Sometimes sleep with nothing on head, but my hair is long & gets sweaty, so pull it loosely back with elastic ponytail - will this harm my locks? Or should I just sweat on them - sorry to be gross, but just curious...
