Strange 'residue' on my scalp


Dread Maintenance

What you describe sounds very normal to me. I think you are right that it is dead skin from your scalp. If you do a lot of sport, your head gets hot and sweaty and while doing sport the blood flow is pretty hight underneath your scalp. Maybe that causes more dead skin is coming off your scalp or just quicker than without sport? You could try to wash right after sport or do a cold water rinse right after to get the sweat off your head and cool down your scalp. I do sport too and i know what you are talking about. I think it can get itchy because of the remaining sweat on the scalp after a workout.

I do wash my hair once or twice a week, but take a cold rinse inbetween washes when i feel the need for it. It closes the pores of the skin and the hair get less oily than without it. Maybe just give it a try?

Ear washing question.


General Questions

I wash my ears twice a week when i also wash my hair. You could use wet wipes for washing them more often or simply tie your hair back?

Hair un-dreading.


General Questions

That is a very interesting post, i always thought that all hair types are naturally willing to knot and dread, but it seems not. Is there any difference in the surface of the hair? Like mine seem to be rough and it will knot very easy and yours is kind of smooth, that no other hairstrand will hold contact and create a knot? I hope there will be more answers to this topic. Have a nice sunday!

Neglect questions/tips


Dreading Methods

Do you rinse with cold water to get the shampoo out of your hair? I do it and i think it helps with oily hair (it closes the pores) and i feel it helps to tighten the dreads/ baby dreads. try it if you have'nt, its for free :-)

One year + questions


Dread Maintenance

I quit using seasalt spray, too. I don't think it helped my progress a lot, maybe just a little bit. I'm fine with the time it takes longer to lock without using the spray... And i also wash twice a week and i think that is a good washing rhythm.

Hi!

You are totally right, the journey takes quite a while, but at least you feel comfortably with the stage you are at right now!

I don't use Vickies shampoo because of the hight shipping costs to europe, but i think it's not a problem of the shampoo quality.

Do you wash with the bars or do you use the liquid shampoo, and how often do you wash your hair?

The balls you get at the ends are totally normal, i have them too at 20 month right now but they will get less noticeable the longer you're at it.

You can help your hair to lock by spraying seasalt dilluted in water at your head a few hours short before washing, because seasalt seems to

help in your process. And if your hair gets oily pretty quick, you might have to wash more often, because that also slows down the process.

Keep on doing what you are doing, i think you are doing just fine!

Greetings,

Frank

Almost 1 month semi-freeforming


General Questions

Hey! I also live in Europe (Germany) and i buy Dr. Bronner at a Douglas parfume Store in my city. I think they exist in France, too. I have

tried the liquid shampoo first, but it did'nt work too well even in soft/medium hard water. I buy the Dr. Bronners teatree bars for the last 6 or 7 month and they work very fine, no residue left at all.The bars cost around 5 Euro but really last for months (I'm at my secondĀ  at the moment).

I hope you will find a dr. bronners dealer where you live!

Help needed to cover my hair


General Talk

Hey!

I cut a sleeve out of on old t-shirt and use it as a head band. It does'nt cover all my hair but a lot, only the back of my head is uncovered.

It might not be the best solution for your job, but it's a cheap alternative and it's comfortable to wear.
