Question On Congo Separation


Dread Maintenance

So, should I try and condition those dreads and try and separate them back to individual dreads (IF that is even possible at this point) or just leave them?

Question On Congo Separation


Dread Maintenance

My dreads were pre-sectioned because at the time I didn't know any better.

Question On Congo Separation


Dread Maintenance

I have been more relaxed as of late on my separating, as a long term result, these two deads have started to congo. Are the two dreads pictured able to be separated again or would that be too damaging to them?

Ok, good to know. Guess when I have a formal event or an interview I'll buy it then.

Question on Magic Locking Gel


Dread Products

Is the Magic Locking Gel that dreadlockshampoo.com sells worthwhile in the case of mature dreads? I don't really have too much loose hair anymore, so I am unsure how much extra benefit this gel would do for my hair. The description talks about it being good for the health of the hair, as sort of a food for dreads.

I am wondering if anyone with mature dreads has used it and what the results were.

Thanks!

Question on Conditioning Dreads


Dread Products

I am using the bar, I might have overestimated when I said 2 inches. might be closer to an inch. Which I know is needed to dread. I bought the conditioner because I have sections of my dreads that have always seemed to feel very compact to me. I know they get dense with age,  I am also looking to make my dreads feel a little softer and less scratchy to the touch.

So maybe I should spot treat with the conditioner then?

Question on Conditioning Dreads


Dread Products

I made the switch this year to using the products made by dreadlocksshampoo, which this site promotes. ...I will save time by simply saying go out and buy them for yourself, the difference is real.

I bought a bottle of her conditioner (sadly not actually up on her site, the same story with the detox bar - my first purchase from her, it's what got me hooked.). My question is, I have pretty loose roots, maybe about max 2 inches undreaded, so is it better to condition starting where the dreads actually begin rather than putting the conditioner on my scalp and rinsing it through as I do normally with shampoo?

Question on Created Sectioning


Dreading Methods

I separate on an infrequent basis, sometimes it's after my weekly wash, other times it's maybe once in any given month.

Question on Created Sectioning


Dreading Methods

Well, the lines aren't still fully there, it's more like I can still sort of see the sectioning if I move my dreads, like if I am tying them back. While I am sure dls bars are great, I use dr bronners because it's easier for me to get. I use it with a bit of salt added to it, which should do the same as the dls liquid I would think. So I guess I just need to keep going and wash and separate them as needed. slowly but surely the sectioning on the center of my head does seem to be shrinking. I know that because that is also kind of the natural way my hair parts, that particular line may not fully disappear, but hopefully, it does.

So is it possible that it'd be closer to about maybe 6 more months or so before the lines are fully gone rather than about another year? (I know there isn't any real way to know for sure).
