Rosemary tea lover


Dread Maintenance

Last night i made a large pot of rosemary tea, I pulled about 10 long sprigs and added it to my boiled water and let it steep overnight. This morning i added 8tbsp of acv, with the mother, i had just under a gallon of tea so i added water to make it the full gain. After scrubbing my scalp in the shower i washed the tea through my hair and let it ddy, no rinse. 

Wow! I'm a rosemary tea groupie now! My scalp felt/ feels so fresh! I LOVE the smell of rosemary so naturally I'm enjoying the smell of my locks, ie's not over powering especially as it dried outta very mild. Next time i may try adding lavender, or sage... best of all, all of this grows here at home so it's easy access yay! 

Anywho, if you're looking for an alternative I highly suggest rosemary! I've been reading up on out, it'll darken hairs when used frequently, is very conditioning (so maybe I'll only use every other week or so so I'm not overly conditioning my locks). Just wanted to share my excitement! I know another poster on her uses rosemary, I'd enjoy more feedback and other tea suggestions!

What would happen if I combed my hair?


Dread Maintenance

I put about 2cups of acv in our baths every time... i believe this is what kept us bug free. I knew they were good but I couldn't shake the paranoia. Lol. Acv isn't all bad

What would happen if I combed my hair?


Dread Maintenance

I use a 1:3 or 1:4 ratio of acv and water every 3 or more weeks. Yes I've been warned, this has been my hair care routine for 5 years now. Definitely if i was soaking in pure acv or doing it all the time, however I've seen/ experienced no ill effect on my hair, and it cured my dandruff issues all those years ago. I swapped my coconut oil for fresh aloe Vera

My current set, 4ish months in

Dread Maintenance

Because i found my kids friend infested with lice 😣 and i freaked out. With that being said i found none in mine or my kids' hairs however I'm glad that i did brush them out. In the beginning of that set i used coconut oil for my scalp and the amout of dirt that had built up was rather icky. Brushing them out gave me the chance to really clean my hairs off, I've only used acv and aloe since. I'm very careful with where my hair goes now... lol.

What would happen if I combed my hair?


Dread Maintenance

I know this post is old but i want to add in my experience. I brushed out my 18mo freeform dreads, 5 dreads i had crocheted and quickly stopped because of how stiff and pokey they were, those dreads lost LOTS of hairs, all the other dreads did not, as they were all natural. Only hairs that came out are hairs i would have lost not dreaded. It took 4 months, hours each day, slowly combing from the bottoms up. First picture is the day i began combing. 2nd is my undreaded hairs. Biggest downside after coming was all the split ends it left. That and no matter how much i conditioned my hairs were quick to lock back up.... conveniently now that I'm redreading lol.

Added a better picture of the brushed out hairs

Newbie to dreads and site


General Questions

I wouldn't bother with palm rolling, the locks will form themselves. My last set i started with that as well, this set I've done nothing but separate and they've formed quicker and more comfortably without. Just my two cents. Welcome! Aloe is great on the scalp, washes out clean, if you notice itching or dandruff. :)

Day 3 of dread journey!


Introduce Yourself

Yes it helps with dandruff, why i made the switch 5 years ago. I find fresh aloe to be great at soothing the scalp as well between acv washes, washes out easy as well

Day 3 of dread journey!


Introduce Yourself

Less is more, too much acv will soften the fibers of the hair and cause breakage, same as to not use too often. I eye ball that ratio, pour over my head in the shower, massaging my scalp before with water and while pouring acv mixture, being sure to pour onto my scalp, let sit for a few minutes while i shave then rinse well! Squeezing the hairs as i rinse. You may noticed a little acv smell while wet but once dry you won't be able to smell anything! It feels so good on the scalp, I'll be doing a wash soon as well

How much time do you spend separating your dreads?


Dread Maintenance

Oooh. I suppose i did misunderstand! Goodness, 2 hours after brushing i had dreads forming in the back! You're blessed with fine and silky hair!

Im sure at this point it's not feeling like a blessing, but your hair is it's own, love it, it's all yours! <3

Yes that was for you duskwood. I can't help but think maybe you'd be seeing locks if you were to separate sections, not forcing, but allowing pieces to form instead of 1 mass.

Either way, enjoy your journey and who cares what anyone thinks if you're happy!!
