Sun In, Dreads & Henna...


General Talk

Plus the lemon juice is bad for hair in general. Heather might know if it's ok when it's really diluted. But as a general rule, lemon juice (citric acid) is really bad for hair. I seeps into the hair shaft and breaks it down from the inside. That's why it lightens your hair. Lightening is how you can visualize the damage

A.C.V wash? help?


Dread Maintenance

It's not necessary to. You really could use bars from the start. But washing with a bar is a little more aggressive than liquid. I'd say switch to a bar when you wash and the don't untangle much or at all.

As far as the ACV rinse. It's a rinse, not a wash. You should only do it after you wash with BS. The BS should stay in for 10 minutes. the ACV should only be left on for about 5 seconds. It doesn't clean your scalp of hair at all. It just softens it up and resets the pH after the BS wash raises it.

Daydreamer, never use lemon juice, or lime juice, or any citrus fruit juice at all. Citrus fruit has citric acid in it, which is very damaging to your hair. It seeps into the hair shaft and breaks it down from the inside. People use lemon juice to lighten their hair. That lightening is how the damage shows up.

And NEVER mix BS and ACV together. The chemical reaction is not good for your scalp, hair, or health. Check out youtube and watch the videos of people mixing BS and vinegar in water bottles. They explode. You don't want to do that on your head. It won't explode, but it fizzies, which it what happens when the heat created starts to burn. You can really damage your hair and scalp by burning it

Scalp treatment for baby dreads


Dread Maintenance

I don't know how I missed that one. Yeah, you should mix 1/2 cup BS to 5 cups of water. Lt it sit on your head for ~10 minutes. Rinse it off really well. The do the ACV rinse

I don't see why anyone would mind getting a soft water filter. Hard water is what leaves that green grime on shower heads. If you ever see that. If you had soft water, you wouldn't have that. And you wouldn't have to clean the shower head nearly as often.

But if you don't have hard water, it's not an issue

Alternatives to tams?


General Questions

Etsy has some really good priced ones. Same with Ebay. But why don't you just wear a bandanna?

Scalp treatment for baby dreads


Dread Maintenance

NEVER mix BS and ACV. Look at Youtube for videos when people mix it in bottles and it explodes. There's a chemical reaction that is really bad for your scalp and hair. It produces heat and gas. You should never mix the 2. People on youtube say you should, and then claim they can feel it working because they can feel the burning and hear it fizzing. That's dangerous. Always separate the 2.

As for as the sea salt. It does promote locking. But yeah, it should never be left in for more than 2 hours. It will dry out your scalp and make your hair brittle if you leave it in too long.

Even though that is just string, it may still prevent some locking. The ones I can see look pretty tight. You don't want to put anything tight around your roots, at any point. The roots need to be loose and free to tangle with new growth and other loose hairs. When they grow out, that string will probably get tangled under hair and will be really hard to get out

Introduce Yourself

Welcome. But once they have fully locked, with the maintenance that salons do, you may not have mush hair left to take care of. If they used any products, it'll a years before they lock up. If they do at all. Wax prevents locking. It gives the impression that they are mature by being hard. But they aren't.

I didn't see anyone say they used wax. But if they did. That will damage your hair. The wax needs to come out to have actually healthy locks. Wax is the main cause of mold and mildew growing in your locks.

If all they do is palm roll, you're wasting your money. First, that can be done for free at home. Second, it should NEVER be done. It only does 1 of 2 things. Either it does nothing, and it has to be done over and over every day. Or it does create knots which means you are irrevocably destroying your roots. It's a damage that doesn't show up right away. it shows up later as you your hair grows out.

And if they are palm rolling your hair, I'm sure they put products in it. The only reason to palm roll, and see it stay flat for a while, is if there is wax in there.

What other methods did they use? It'll be hard to help you fix anything without knowing what was done over the year

Dirty Dreads


Help! Save My Dreads

The BS/ACV wash will really help clean out the dirt.

I worked at UPS for a few years. It's pretty grimy inside a truck all day. Wearing a tight knitted tam worked wonders for keeping the dust and grit out of my hair

Yet another new journey.


Introduce Yourself

I'm excited for you to. As I bet we all are. Dreadlocks do bring with them a spiritual feeling. That ability to just let go and be who you were meant to be.

I hope to make it out to Burning Man one day. I;m sure I'd love it as much as you do. It just seems like the place for me.

Keep the journey going, and if you get some chances, post pics. They don't have to be of just your locks. I'd love to see any of Burning man, if you took any

Hello all!


Introduce Yourself

NEVER use suave. There are 2 ingredients that have been directly linked to a few types of cancer just from skin contact: Methylchloroisothiazolinone, and methylisothizolinone. In the factory where they produce it, the FDA requires workers to wear gloves when handling it. Why would you put it on your skin directly?

Also, it's not a residue free shampoo
