Sea salt solution


Dread Products

In that hour it dries your hair out just enough. Salt draws water and moisture out of your hair. But if you leave it in too long it'll draw moisture out of your scalp as well. and if you leave it in continuously, it'll just keep drying out your scalp until it starts to itchuncontrollably. Salt doesn'tdissolve in oil. So the oil that your scalp produces wont dissolve the salt. it'll just stay there until you wash it next. This will make your hair brittle and your scalp raw.

That hour or 2 draws enough moisture out of your hair to dry it out enough to make it more ready to tangle without damaging it.

Wool helps a little, but does tend to create tons of frizzies. They'll form with or without a wool pillow case

Dying and stripping colours


General Questions

Cool. That makes sense. Now for the big question. I know nothing about henna. What kind and where to find it. I have medium to dark brown hair. I don't want to go any darker if I can stand it.

Dying and stripping colours


General Questions

Who here has dyed their locks with either Henna or Black tea?

I am getting married soon, and am considering dying my locks a little just to cover up some of the fuzzies from my bright blue hoodie. They're not supernoticeable, but you know, just in case. I want to look a bit cleaner for it.

That being said, I just started washing with BS and ACV. I know that BS strips colours. That why I'm asking people who have dyed before. How much does it strip and how quickly. Should I dye my hair the day before the wedding, or can I dye it a while before and be safe knowing the colour will stick long enough

locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

I'm getting married at them end of June. My locks are over 5 years old, and will probably be closer to 6 by the time of the wedding....

But... I do still have some new babies forming on top of my head. Normally I don't even think about them, but with the wedding coming up, I'll be in a nice tux and it'll be rather formal for my normal day to day life, so I wanted to try out the gel and see if I could help coax those new locks along. I just finished the first jar of the gel it lasted 2 months or so. And I just ordered another.

It's kind of strange stuff. I don't know how old you are, but if you remember gack or slime from back in the day, it feels like that. It's slimy, but obviously water based. It washes out of your hair after every wash. But it dries kind of hard. Not like a rock, but but does make your hair a little prickly.

I liked it, though. Obviously, I'm buying more. In the 2 months that I have been using it, the locks I was trying it on really started knotting up and staying in place. It won't help them grow longer faster, but it is helping keep them looking more managed

Yeah, they'll either form their own, or get sucked into one close by. There will always be some loose hairs, but never the same ones all the time

Should be about that the concentration, plus you shouldn't be spraying it after you wash. You should be doing it before. Salt will dry out your scalp and make you super itchy.

I spray it on about an hour before I wash, and then rinse it before I use any soap or whatever you use to wash. You won't notice locking right away. But in a few month you'll start seeing more progress than you would if you didn't use it.

Salt's not a quick fix to make locks grow faster. It just helps egg them on

Beanie's are too tight no matter what. They restrict all movement. The only hat you should be worried about is sleeping with or without a tam. And 99% of the time it will fall off over night, so why bother. Locks do not have to be baby'd It's messy hair. Just let it be messy until it starts to locks up

congos! :S need some advice


Dread Maintenance

If you rip them apart those frizzies will eventually get sucked back into the lock. It'll take time, but no more time than any normal frizzies take to get pulled in. It depend on how big the congo would be too. If you don't want locks that big, then separate. If you don't mind the size of the congo, let it be

Where to get essential oils in Mass

At least around here, wherever there is a trader joes, there's a Whole foods somewhere nearby. I don't know if it's like that up there. But here both are usually acrss the street from one and other. That goes for 3 of the 5 Whole foods by me
