baby dreads, questions :)


Dread Maintenance

oh and another question, when I did them I guess I grabbed some hair from the base of one section and accidently put it into a different dread...so as they grow longer there will be like a ladder attaching them at one point....I would prefer they not be attached, should I try and take those two out and re tnr or should I cut the hair on one of them close to the dread and hope for the best?

thanks :)...I noticed on www.dreadlocksoap.com they have a salt accelerator, is that a leave in product or should you still wash out?

Dread Maintenance

thank you!! I will wash my hair tonight! I only waited this first week so hopefully that didn't mess it up too much...so when you say that twist n rip isn't actual dreads....how does this work then? will each one come undone and redread sort of? but they kinda stick to the original sectioning?...I guess it is confusing to me to hear that they are not real dreadlocks when it is called the twist n rip dreadlock method LOL...now im confused!

baby dreads, questions :)


Dread Maintenance

Hey, Im new here, just posted in intros and I have a few questions :)

just started my dread journey, babies are a week old today :)blog about them

I have very curly hair and did the twist n rip method because I liked the look of them best from my research. they seem to be ok other than the ends are loosening quite a bit...so without further adieu:

1. should I be retwist n ripping the ends or DONT TOUCH? and why, why not?

2. if I have oily scalp and always had issues with dandruff and itches what should I use to wash them during the baby stage, and how often to start out? I have read "not for the first month" "2-3 times a week", "leave it for a week or two".....so many different ideas and I am not sure what is best for the baby stage

3. I read on a blog that it was okay to do criss cross wraps as they don't restrict the dreads in their process...is that true (my keyboard question,mark is being weird so I will no longer use it for the duration of this post LOL) so I would love the wrap all my little dreads in criss cross embroidery thread to help tame the frizzies since with my curly hair they are starting to look really frizzy

4. also read that it is ok to use aloe on baby dreads for frizzies, but then somewhere else I read that that was a bad idea for baby dreads....so much conflicting info!

5. sea salt sprays...yay or nay again conflicting opinions for baby dreads

thanks to anyone who tackles my questions :)

Introduce Yourself

Hey everyone! I just started my dready journey on July 31st! they are a week old!!!

So anyways a little about me, I have been married for 7 years, have two beautiful babes, and am a mostly stay at home mom other than the birth support work that I do which is always on call ;)

So I am a doula and a natural childbirth educator :)

I started dreads because I love the natural way they look and honestly am incredibly unimaginative and non experimental where my hair comes and I love how low maintenance dreads are! (it really is sad because I am a hairdresser by certification but am really only good with other peoples hair hahaha)

I lurked around here for a bit getting some knowledge before I went for it and decided that twist and rip would work best for how I wanted them to look and with my hair type and everything :)

I started a blog with the journey for fun, you can see it here if you like, only a few pics so far though :)

gonna go start a thread with questions :)
