Newbie here. help please :)


Dreading Methods

Braids will lock up, but not braids that tight. If you wanted to do it that way, take those braids out and do them again really loosely. But then agin, if you take those out, your hair will probably be kinky and tangely enough that it will be ready to start twisting and locking on it's own.

Hi I'm Nasya! (kinda long intro!)


Introduce Yourself

Sounds and looks good. The aloe is not verynecessary, because it is a conditioner. It will just make your locks slick and harder to knot. I'd recommend only using it if you have to for pictures or a special occasion. It's good for your hair, but does oil them up.

I need ideas/help!


Introduce Yourself

I'm the same as Eagle. I started my locks when my hair was 3-4 inches long. And they are now over a foot each.

Yours will be fine. They'll shrink a little, but they will really quickly explode and grow super fast. And with your hair shorter in the back, you'll avoid a mullet look

Hair separation


Introduce Yourself

scrubbing at your locks might make them separate, but you should never wash your hair itself. Just your scalp. We need more info about your locks before we can help

Fighting the "good" fight!


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Thanks, she's at a school now that has one teacher with a mohawk. She keeps it down, but you can definitely tell what it is. Another science teacher there has a full sleeve tattoo.

My girlfriends past the time in her life where she wants locks, but If she did, this might be an ok setting for her to go for it, but then again, it's a charter school, so she doesn't have the security a union would give her. But she's got the credentials. She taught for Kaplin for 4 years. So, because the only thing schools in Pa care about are standardized testing, She's the best teacher they have. I don't think she'll even be out of a job, but growing locks might not sit well with the administrators, so she's not willing to take the chance.

Using all natural cleaners, and household items. HELP PLEASE :)


Introduce Yourself

If there's a whole foods, the 365 brand is not bad at all. At least it was the last time I got it. I haven't been to the Fresh Market yet, so I can't say

The wax truth,


Saved Dreads Success Stories

You can wash with wax in your hair. But if you don't use degreaser and hot water, the wax won't come out. What will happen is that water will make it into the lock by whatever tiny gap there is between the wax and your scalp, or any small area that wax isn't covering. Once the water is inside, it can't get out, because the lock is not only water proof from the outside, but also the inside. When water sits around one area doesn't move, it's called a swap/marsh/wetland/bog...etc. Whatever you want to call it, material rots there. The same goes for what happens to your hair if it sits in water for extended periods of time.

sorry if the first post wasn't clear. I read it again, and it didn't make much sense. I;d tried to clear up what I meant.

It's ok. I'd rather have had to start over than try to get all the wax out and find out years later than I missed some and have to cut them after all that work and time. But thanks for the sympathies

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

Great. It's looking just like mine did. Not quite locks, but really nice distinct curls. Keep it up

7th generation is a good brand. Pretty big and well known too. They make all sorts of cleaners, paper products, soaps and detergents. Their laundry detergent is actually really good

it is french. Not sure how well they work though. They sound nice, but I'd still trust toilet paper. You can get some that is recycled so you're no using virgin wood. That's always better. And they've gotten much better with making it softer. It's not like the old stuff that was like wiping with sand paper
