The Birthing of Excellent Locks


Dreads in the Family

Show them this website. Tell them how often and what method of washing you'll use. Then do what you want. I don't know how old you are, but it's your head, your hair, do with as you please.

Month old dreads


Dreading Methods

What dreadmojo said. Wash wash wash that hair!! Clean hair dreads up faster. Dirty hair is oily hair, knots will not form in oily hair. Get a good dread shampoo, dreadlockshampoo.com has excellent stuff. The bs/acv is awesome too. Up in the left hand corner is the search button, do a search for baking soda and sea salt ratio, that will tell you everything you need to know. Aside from clean hair, you don't ever need to retwist, it won't do any good... But over time it will cause traction alopecia, which is bald spots. They can be permanent. Patience is absolute key in dreading. Basically, if something your hair does makes you freak out, it's doing exactly what it's supposed to be doing!! Let it happen! Wash 2-3 times a week and forget you even have hair for a few months.

Top of my head looks awful!


Help! Save My Dreads

The remedy is stay away from that salon, don't ever crochet again and wash wash wash!! There is not a single thing wrong with getting your hair wet. It's good for it! How else are you going to get your hair and scalp clean? A dry shampoo doesn't do that. Dry shampoos make your hair smell a bit fresh for a little while. They dry out your hair because they are alcohol based. That's about it. Dude, wash your hair. It's as simple as that. No salon, no crochet, no wax, no comb, no fingering. Just wash and let it be.

Fast Progression (Is it good or bad?)


General Questions

I would think, since dreaded hair holds water, they'd feel heavy when wet. Mine always feel heavy when I'm washing and for a while after, because they're wet, water is heavy.

Dreads look grey after washing my hair with baking soda??


Dread Maintenance

I mix it up, depending on my mood.10-15 drops tea tree15-20 drops rosemary (I have a pretty flaky scalp)1-15 drops lavenderTea tree has a really powerful smell so I use that in the bs. Since I'm really flaky, I use rosemary in my acv.

Having a couple tablespoons of acv diluted with 5 cups water really lessens the smell. Add a few drops of an essential oils and you won't smell the vinegar at all.Tea tree oil is good for helping correct dandruff. Helps keep bugs away too.Lavender is antibacterial, good for killing/ preventing mold and mildew.Rosemary is good for helping reduce flakes and itching too.In my opinion, this is the absolute best combination of oils.

HALP!


Dread Maintenance

Either way is fine. To keep the sections separated, towards the tops is best.
