Member Journals and Timelines

I’m no expert at only barely 4 months in but it’s my 3rd time giving dreads a shot and I’ve read and watched tons of videos lol.. I think it’s just because your hair is thicker and there’s a lot of it is why you feel you’re not making “progress”. Thicker hair takes longer to dread. I’m sure you chose natural method for a reason, so as far as being satisfied just remind yourself of WHY you chose to do it this way and relax and let it be.. aside from that I could say if you wanted to separate and do some palm rolling it may be satisfying for a moment you could see and feel better where it’s actually “dreading”. But that’s just a temporary “solution”. Everyone here will say Lea or it be... which is cool.. everyone else can see it making “progress” but you.. kinda like kids or pets growing when you see them everyday you don’t realize how big they’re getting until years have passed and their grown, but say a family member visits once or twice a year and says oh you’ve grown sooo much. I think dreads are the same if that makes sense lol..

LOOPS


General Questions

Yes I know it’s small.. I have those big ones as well and ladders and snake sticks and all kinds of “mess”. These ones just popped out of no where and is not the same is why I was curious about it. Already more of the hair has come out and made a bigger loop the morning.. must be the way I sleep 🤷‍♀️ The dread it’s self is a bit looser around that area then it was before too.. almost like it was undoing itself?

LOOPS


General Questions

Ok.. so I know loops bumps and knots and what not are all part of the process. But I have these ones that are a bit concerning.. it seems that the hair like wants to bust loose out the dread 😂. Will that happen? Am I worried over nothing.. I think this one in particular did it cuz it’s one of my favorites so it just wanted to rebel 😂😂 any who I already know everyone will say do nothing and leave it be...and I’m mostly fine with that. I guess I just want to know that it won’t “jump out” per say and it will eventually go back into the dread.

Aloe Vera


Dread Maintenance

Ehhh... that worked so, so.. can see where it’d be great on mature dreads but not so good on babies as you mentioned since it is conditioning... I’m glad I went light with it and won’t be doing it again anytime soon no major issues just could tell it wanted to loosen some of my babies... thanks for the advice..

Aloe Vera


Dread Maintenance

I got some Aloe Vera to use on my hair, yes it’s 100%. I’m planning on using it for the first time today as I have a semi formal event to go to this eve.. my question is should I wash it out or will it be fine for a few days to leave in? Do I just use sparingly on the extra frizzy spots? I thought about mixing with water and just spraying it in before styling?

Gotcha... I may use just a bit not often at all, it does seem to be a little bit dry and brittle but not very, so if I do I will use sparingly. Thanks!

Yes I did notice that, that’s why I quit washing every day to stop with the greasy hair. washing every 3rd day seems to have helped already with the grease so yea I guess I’d just be right back where I started as far as my scalp producing grease, forgot about that part 😒. What about coconut oil (pure, raw) is that safe occasionally for moisture?

any harm in washing hair daily if your using the right soap? Right now I stick with washing every 3rd day.. but I shower daily and I hate keeping my hair up in the shower, I know it’s ok for it to get wet but i feel like it stinks if I get it wet and don’t wash it, plus it’s still a million degrees here and a work outside most days
