Sea salt spray


Dread Products

@soaring-eagle is that how you avoid tight roots? If so, that makes a lot of sense. Also it makes sense that the dreads end up the size of the section. There's a grad student in the physics department of my uni that uses wax. His sections are like twice the size of his dreads.

@femalepheromones do you count time starting from when you combed out your crocheted locs? Yours look better than mine in my opinion. I would have kept the old crocheted ones and just gone natural from there, let the knots build up, and then once the natural neglect part grows long enough, cut off the crocheted part. I almost took my brother's offer to pay to have mine crocheted but I want the bragging rights of saying that mine are freeform.

Just those little balls at the ends that will probably fall out. The rest is as  straight as can be without straightening my hair. No tangles knots or anything.

I was even thinking of going down to the beach with a couple of empty gallon jugs and filling them with ocean water.

I don't feel the liquid is enough. I don't feel it's working too well. I haven't really seen any progress at all. I look at my weekly timeline on my gallery and don't see much of a change. Especially in the front and top of my head.

Sea salt spray


Dread Products

I tried it out yesterday, just spraying a bit around my hair, and it made a huge significant difference. My hair was only knotting at the ends. Forming little wrecking ball like things that I assumed were just going to fall out, but after one use, the hair suddenly started kinking up and coiling and knotting much closer to the root. Especially the few dreads that I actually do have, they got a lot tighter. I'm going to try your advice about rinsing my hair every day with warm water as opposed to once a week. My hair usually gets out of control by the second day without a wash. I'll use the spray each day as well after showering and see what happens. If I notice any breakage apart form my separating, I'll reduce the use of it.

Sea salt spray


Dread Products

Anyone have any experience using sea salt spray? I've been reading through forums and people with thinner finer hair find that using a spray helps them lock up really fast. I also ran into a guy at school who

has amazing neglect dreads and told me that his hair started dreading after he went camping and swimming in the ocean for 2 weeks. I've been contemplating buying some spray from dreadlocksshampoo

but for now, I found a bottle of sea salt spray h2ocean that I got for my piercings and thought maybe I'd try using that and see if anything happens. Any advice? Should you put it on while hair is damp? Can it be used while hair is dry if you don't wash every day? Has salt spray helped any of you guys? Especially if you have thinner fine straight hair?

I guess I'll stick to just separating the back of my head for now. Those get pretty congoed. I'm not sure how many individual locs I can have wiht my hair type though. I hope to have as many as possible.

General Questions

I feel like separating at this stage is keeping my hair from dreading in the front,top and sides. The back is doing amazing though. Should I keep away from separating the rest of my hair until some matting happens? It's been 3 months and no matting has happened at all.

General Questions

One of the reasons I decided to let my hair dread was because it'd probably give the appearance of having a thicker head of hair.

I try to keep my hands out of my head. I feel like if I play with them or touch them, loose hair will fall out and not end up dreading in.

For now I have to put up with his constant berating that I need to get them crocheted and that theyre going to look like crap and that it's not worth waiting so long for crappy dreads that probably won't look like dreads etc.  Yea, I grew up with my twin constantly looking down on me.

I split my first section today. It was really together. It was about almost 2x2 in section. It sounded like velcro ripping apart. I have a huge ripped blister on my hand now. I can't imagine what people who have fully formed dreads go through to split them.

I split it from the root. Now sure if that's okay or not.
