Separating baby dreads


Dread Maintenance

I have been freeforming for about 9 months. I started from a low cut and towel rubbed it until I got some length. My hair is still very short but its starting to Congo all over. On the side I still have some skinny dreads cause my hair is thinner there but the rest of my head seems to want to become 1 huge dread. I know this is the stage where it goes through alot of changes but I had some really big clumps that I felt just needed to separate. My question is should I be separating this early while its so short? I don't want to interfere too much but I don't want to end up with 1 huge dread either. Is this something I should nip in the bud or just keep going until I have more length? Also I was sleeping with a tam for a while but won't be anymore. My hair is so thick that it very well could end up being 1 giant monster lock

Washing too often due to itchy oily scalp


Help! Save My Dreads

I got my shampoo bar yesterday and washed with it today. I ordered peppermint and got a sample of cedar so I used the sample first. I love the smell of both and when it came I smelled it through the mailbox. My scalp feels clean. Will definitely recommend these bars. Thanks

Thanks for the advice. Yea its the tea tree tingle shampoo I use. If I scratch my scalp (which I avoid doing) I get a little buildup under my nails so I will just continue washing like I do. I heard alot of people say acv would help my scalp but its really not doing that for me. I like the way my hair looks after rinsing with acv though. If u say washing every 2 days is ok then ill stick with that. I think I'm on the right track its just that alot of people say they go a week or 2 without washing but I can't do that. Just gotta do what works for me

Washing too often due to itchy oily scalp


Help! Save My Dreads

Hey I'm new to the forums and have been locking for 6 to 7 months now. My hair seems to be coming along fine except that my scalp has been giving me problems the whole time. I started towel rubbing for the first 2 weeks when my hair was really short and it sectioned off nicely right away. Once it grew into a mini fro I had to wash every other day to keep from scratching it out. I feel like my hair would grow and lock faster if I could go longer without washing but I can't go more than 2 days before the itching gets out of control. I use acv once a week and I shampoo with a tea tree and peppermint shampoo I got from trader joes. Every time I wash I try to be as thorough as possible but when I come out the shower I still feel oily spots on my head. Has anyone else dealt with this and found a solution? I'm trying not to lose my patience cause I really want my locs to grow long and mature. I took pics of my hair coming out of the shower
