I love my frizzies too. I never used aloe before, but I might need to just to clean them up for the occasion.

You could, but remember that because it's a conditioner, you'll want to wash it out asap, and that it'll slow down the locking process a little bit. But just using it for the one day shouldn't hurt them

Good to hear.

All I'm going to do for my wedding is maybe rub some aloe onto them to keep the frizzies down. It works, but Aloe is a conditioner, so I won't put it on my new babies that are growing in

Purchasing shampoo, any advice?


Dread Maintenance

I'm inbetween. I started with Dr. B's and loved it. For years it was the only soap I ever used. Once I found this site, and heard of Dreadlockshampoo.com, and that they were my neighbors, I felt like I should try them out. I use bars, cause my locks are mature. I have to say that I loved it. For me it was a little harder to rinse out than Dr. B's but not like it left a residue.

That being said, If you found a soap that you like and can easily get hold of, why switch? There's nothing wrong with Bronners. If it works for you, then there's no reason to stop.

But if you are bent on looking around, try out Dreadlockshampoo.com. liquid soaps are much better for baby locks, like Eagle said. Once they mature, you can keep using liquid, but bars wont hurt them

Friendly neighborhood site stalker needs a bit of help :)


Help! Save My Dreads

I couldn't watch the whole thing cause my internet is being slow today, but from the first 2 minutes, I can't help but say wow. Your locks look great. yeah, if they are already knotting up that well, don't worry about that hairs that aren't. They will knot up on their own, or get sucked into locks nearby.

It's a problem that almost everyone here has had. From personal experience, the hair on the underside is usually softer and can take longer to knot up. I have had my locks for 5 years and the hair by the nape of my neck are still forming.

Just take it easy and keep being lazy about caring for your hair. That's part of the reason I got them too. If you don't care about what others think of how you look, then don't worry about the few sections that are being slow and stubborn.

Is the bride ok with your locks? If so, ask her to go all bridezilla and insist you keep them. I'm getting married in July, and as much as I want to do some things at my wedding, like be barefoot and such, I accept that weddings really are for the bride. If she wants you to look presentable, comb them out and start over after the wedding. If she is cool with them, and won't care if you have locks in her wedding pics, then keep them. Her family is probably paying the bulk of the cost anyway. So his family should have no say at all in what goes down.

Boring my friends with my hair


General Talk

People compliment mine, but I don't talk about them to anyone. Even when I see other people with locks, I try to stay away from that conversation. I don't want the connection I have with someone be based on something superficial like hair

how often should i wash my hair?


Dread Maintenance

If you are oily by nature, you're head will get accustomed to washing less often. As your locks mature, they will retain water for longer. Like a sponge. If they do not ever have the chance to dry between washing, you get mildew and will eventually turn into mold. It's not harmful in the beginning to wash every day, but after a few months you'll be washing less often anyway, so it's better to start off like that now

is this supposed to happen?


Dread Maintenance

That sucks Mindy. I guess I lucked out with soft water. It depends on where you live. The North east of America tends to have softer water. and the south west has harder water.

I've never had problems with Dr. B's but I do have problems with dreadlockshampoo.com. I can get it all out, but it takes twice as long to rinse it all out

Still wouldn't worry. And from the first pic, your hair looks just like mine. Not just the locks, but how it lays.
