Back after a while of short hair (8-10 years)


Introduce Yourself

actually I might get the 2nd amazon one I listed then see what happens, again it's only a short term thing so I'm hoping it'll end up alright

awesome I'll stay away from those, some people are saying it's bad in the feedback and some say it good, I never know whats good or bad info these days but you always set me straight! hmm I don't have fb and they won't let me create an account without a picture of me next to my drivers license (which I don't have lol), I'll be careful and think just use lush for a few weeks, I mean the locks are only 2-3 weeks old so I think(hope) that if I wash them maybe twice a week(?) with the lush stuff they won't hold much residue right now. Anyway hopefully I can get some of the good stuff within a month, so the lush stuff might have to do until then

You can get pretty much a years supply for the 25. It’s flat rate I’m not sure where the cut off is but I think it’s something like a six of the bottles 10 of the bars something like that before it goes up to the next tire shipping price

okay sounds good, I think I'll leave the amazon stuff it's too complicated. I'll keep trying for the dreadlocksshampoo one, thank you very much!

what about this:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Faith-Nature-Tree-Shampoo-400ml/dp/B000NHKWJO/ref=sr_1_16?dchild=1&keywords=dreadlock%2Bshampoo&qid=1619631150&sr=8-16&th=1

the reviews seem good for dreadheads, no parabens and seems kinda natural

Bronners is MARGINAL if you DO NOT have hard water in hard water it’s almost like wax with buildup from hell


if your in USA the absolute best The best Organic dreadlocks shampoo  the liquid for young dreads licks em up fast


the bars for mature keep em super healthy


the oils if essential oils are ok in small amounts.. drops..


but the shampoos are .,well.. read the ingredients you’ll see



Damn that sucks, I have hard water and I'm in the UK so buying from dreadlockshampoo will cost $25 in shipping alone!


lol thank you I thought that was the best comb, but I'm not doing it anymore


What about distilled water? I actually have a distiller (originally for distill alcohol, but it basically heats up any liquid and removes whatever makes it hard water, so I guess that's an option I can experiment with) or I could just buy a few bottles of distilled from the shop and save them for cleaning, I think I'll leave the oils for now, in a few months I'll maybe add them.


haha I just read the ingredients, beer well that's a surprise! I wish I could get it but 25 for shipping then taxes on top make it unaffordable, hmm, I'll have a look on ebay/amazon and see if they have anything similar, or I could maybe make it myself I'm not sure. if you don't mind I'll reply with anything I think is similar but available in the UK, thank you so much I was just gonna buy some BS from my local shop

Such thing as too small of a section?


Dread Maintenance

those look amazing! I hope mine get like that, my hair is naturally curly/wavy so I've a lot of twisters like yours that start out as one but break into 3-5. I'm trying to go natural this time

heres some pics, again it's only 2-3 weeks so yeah, not much (but I'm so excited to begin the journey again!), I'll have to separate some soon or they'll all congo but otherwise, are they okay? oh and the bandana, it makes them look neater for oing outside but would that prevent or slow the process? thanks

edit: oh dear I just noticed a post saying to not use BS, how do I clean them then? is dr bronners still okay at a 1/12 dilution?

Hi everyone!

I couldn't remember the pass to my old account so just made a new one. When I had dreads over 8 years ago I used all the dreadheadhq products, backcomed and twisted/ripped. Good god I needed that lesson, after several years the wax wouldn't leave despite me trying to remove it and even growing new hair, it never left and picked up all sorts of lint and dust so I just cut them and went with short hair for a while.

Now I'm 2-3 weeks into just letting my hair do what it wants, I did get a little impatient and (against my better judgement) backcombed using a very wide afro type plastic comb (looked like this:

, but only for a half hour at most, I dont like the sideshow bob look haha. Guess I didn't totally learn my lesson.

But I'm determined to use nothing from now on except bicarb of soda, lemon, essential oils etc to clean etc. So I'm back for actual good advice. I do have a lot of loose hair especially at the back and sides, I'm hoping that's normal for the first few weeks since I've never done all natural before. Is there any way to get them to knot up or should I just leave em to it? I'm thinking the latter but I just so want to have my dreads back asap! But yeah I know, that's not how it works, I'll post some pics soon and prgress updates I'm just glad to be back and not use dirt/wax this time.

Thanks,

benzene
