help with dreads


Dread Maintenance

If you let them grow out a bit, your roots get loser and they fall in other directions easy.

getting new dreads with old dreads


Dread Maintenance

what do you mean exactly by "make new"? If your hair on the sides is long enough, it will dread by its own, how did you do your old ones? Natural locks need no special treatment, just washing and separation, that's all.

General Talk

yes, this must be an issue on this site. I guess she talks to a member on his/her page and it is shown somehow in this thread?!

want neat uniform dread...read on...


General Talk

there is nothing wrong separation regularly even thin dreads, but what do you mean exactly with "cursed bands" ? You can wrap your roots

or even whole dreads with wool or hemp to keep em separated, but never use rubber bands or something like that. It weekens the hair a lot and will

get sucked into the dread over time!

Treatment for hard spots


Dread Maintenance

Ok, very good! Then there should be nothing to worry about. If it would be any sort of residue buildup, it would be smelly when wet.

The picture you have posted seems very similar to some of my dread tips. The hard spots might get softer over time.

Treatment for hard spots


Dread Maintenance

I have blunted ends myself and i try to rinse very well after every wash , maybe like almost 10 minutes ? With lose ends everything rinses out way easier , thats why i am very focused on the rinses to get everything out completely. Do you rinse long as well ? Make sure to get all shampoo out again.

Using oil


Dread Maintenance

Yes , don't ever go back to a salon again to get them maintained. Just leave em they will recover from the treatment and get thicker over time. The most locks start small and get thicker over tine.

Does only dry hair form dreadlocks?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Dreadlocks form even without washing at all. The saddhus in India practice that for a spiritual reason. On here we promote to wash at least once a week with a shampoo. Rinses with only water inbetween washes are totally ok and helpful to tame the frizz. Washing weekly with massaging the scalp , what before even the comb did , will help to remove dead skin from the scalp. Not washing means everything will stay on your head and even in your dreads , which i think is gross. There are people on here only washing with water , but some had problems with buildup in their dreads. Shampoo is a little better for removing dirt. The drealocksshamppo has clay inside which does the trick.

Oh because its really thin at the roots of the new growth
What kind of maintainance did you do the last years ? Did you crochet the new growth ? If it is very thin , could you let it combine with a thicker lock near by ?

Totally normal for freeform , some lock at the roots first , some start at the tips. It does'nt really matter where the knots start. It will be fine !
