The best advice... Wash wash and wash. 2-3 days a weeks. Washing helps knots form. Sleeping helps tighten them.

There's no real need to brush your finger through your hair. It can slow down the process a bit. Let the rats nest form. I have a video tutorial of how to separate the sections when they begin to grow together: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/video/separating-tutorial?xg_source=activity

You can give that a look. but you probably don't need to separate much yet.

If you want to help keep your sections separate, you can put beads on them. Decorating your locks is fun anyway, and beads serve a few purposes. They look cool, separate your hair, and act like little imitation knots that help encourage more knotting.

I'm glad you found your way here. Any questions you've got, feel free to ask

They look good for 4 months. What have you been doing to help them knot so fast?

Is anything suppose to be happening?


Dread Maintenance

Everything Eagle already said. It's a common misconception that natural soaps are good for natural hair. But locks need a soap that doesn't leave residue and don't condition your hair.

Why knot? (pictures at bottom)


Dread Maintenance

1: I have that exact same drug rug. My mom brought it back from Jamaica.

2: You look great. Leave them to do their own thing, and embrace how beautiful you are with locks in the back and that gorgeous hair framing your face. When it locks up, let it, but don't rush it at all.

General Questions

Hit up thrift stores. You can find some really cool clothes there without having to dress like themanikinsin department stores.

I buy everything of mine from thrift shops. One of my favorite jackets only cost me 5 bucks.

Plus you may be able to find some really cool, oldschool clothes there.

Not all clothes from them are all tattered and raggedy too. Look around, some rich areas have thrift stores where you can find designer clothes with the tags still on them for super cheap.

Locks go good with everything, but I know what you mean. I'm comfortable in random tee-shirts and jeans, but I do love silk. It's probably my favorite material. Just go shopping around and pick some things out that you like. Then assemble them at home

Just a question about this soap I bought.


Dread Products

do you know the ingredients? It should be fine to use regularly if it really is residue free. That murkiness is probably dirt and grime that was left in your hair getting washed out. No idea why the BS wouldn't have cleaned it out, but if this soap if doing it, then stick with it

Sorry to hear about that. You've got to do what you've got to do . But in the future, if you grow them again, remember on thing: Locks are the only hairstyle that you don't have to think about at all. Just wash and separate. No thought involved.

Please take a quick look at this!!!! :/ Need quick advice on a little problem.


Help! Save My Dreads

Egubman said it. It's been there all along. If you didn't notice it then, just forget about it again. In time, that hair will lock up on its own, or get sucked into another lock. Then it will get replaces by different loose hairs. Hair constantly grows, and any hair that get's ripped out or falls out on its own will be replaced by new growth. It happens to everyone with locks. Mine are 6 years old and I have loose hair everywhere. Just push it flat with your hands, and you won't notice it anymore.

Early Dreads


Introduce Yourself

Locks can form with normal shampoo. But remember, most normal shampoos leave some sort of residue. That won't be good for them down the line. The BS wash will do you much better. But remember to rinse with ACV afterwards.

And caps tend to squeeze your head a little too tightly, even if it doesn't feel like that do. They can force locks to form flat, or prevent locking, like Eagle mentioned about the other guy on here

A.C.V wash? help?


Dread Maintenance

If your hair gets oily really quick and easily, skip the ACV wash until it isn't anymore, thenreintroduceit slowly. But if your hair doesn't get oily, always use it. BS is a base. It raises the pH of your hair and scalp and will dry it out and make it brittle and probably itch like mad. The ACV is an acid and resets your pH back to normal levels.

It's not used specifically to condition your hair. It does soften it up a bit. But if you don't use a lot, it won't untangle your hair more than normal washing would do
