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).

Question on Created Sectioning


Dreading Methods

Interlocking with the starting method of my dreads and they were foolishly maintained that way until about the 6 or 7th-month mark, how it's 4 years and 7 months later as of today. So am I looking at another year of having the section lines on my head or longer? Would there be any way to speed up getting rid of the section lines?

Question on Created Sectioning


Dreading Methods

(Preface: If this is in the wrong section of the forum please let me know where it should be posted and feel free to move it there) I have a question on sectioning dreads. My dreads were originally made by going to a loctician (yes I know that was a mistake and one I do and still reget), is it possible for the defined section lines on my scalp to eventually get covered up without having to combine many of my dreads (as this would lead to them being too thick for my comfort, as I enjoy the thickness they are now.) or am I stuck with these section lines on my head? (Which would be a shame, because I don't wear my hair back unless I have to because it feels weird to me to see the section lines)

Moving Forward With Nature: My Dreadlock Journal


Member Journals and Timelines

So the some of the ends of my dreads had a twisted look to them, because I had twisted the dreads in the past in trying to make them not grow flat....well a few weeks back, I realized that those twisted parts were, in fact, weak spots that were caused probably from interlocking, and they were going to finally fall out my dreads, they did. One fell off when I was out somewhere and I don't know what happened to it, the other one, I was able to painlessly pull off the dread with no apparent damage to the dreads at all, what follows are pictures of the parting I had concerns about. it appears to be finally closing up back to what a normal scalp parting is supposed to be :)
