dread empire


Dread Products

It's more that because they push wax, they are willing to push other damaging products. Hence how damaging their shampoo is. I didn't look at all of their products. But I'd venture to bet none of them are good for locks, or hair in general

lol. OK. Have you tried just making a spray bottle with jojoba, teatree, and rosemary oils in it? Obviously water too.

It's a tough call. Do you have hard water? I may be worth looking into getting a soft water filter for your shower head. Hard water has minerals in it like limestone.

I have never had a flake problem, so I don't know the best course to take when none of the regular remedies don't work. Eagle or Heather may be the ones the ask.

Shampoo


General Talk

It should be ok. There are a few ingredients that have no need to be in it. But I don't see much of an issue with health hazards,

Check with Heather though

dread roots?


Dread Maintenance

In due time.

I know that that's not an exact measurement of time, but it'll have to do. Baby locks have between 1-3 inches of straight hair at the roots. They will lock up, though. When they are mature, it shrinks to about 1/4 - 1 inch of straight hair.

Locks go through 3 main stages. First they shrink a ton. This when much of the actually knotting is taking place. Then they go through a stage where they seem to no grow at all, but they don't shrink either. This is the stage you are looking for. That when the roots really start matting and knotting up. Then they grow like crazy.

I'd say around the 6th month (average), is when you see your roots really start to tighten

Frizzies/fuzz from freeform


General Questions

You could use a salt water solution and spray your hair with it or soak your hair in it for a few minutes to promote locking. 3.5% salt to water. Never leave it on for more than 2 hours, though. If you're going to do this, it's best to do it the day you are going to wash anyway. Just soak it for a little while before you wash

Why are my dreads so curly?


General Questions

They will probably straighten out in time. Some may keep a wavy look to them, which would be awesome. Check out Rachel Natty Dee's locks. Her hair is amazingly curly and some of her locks are curly like yours. http://www.dreadlockssite.com/profile/RachelSmith

General Questions

Leave them. They need to be there for locks to grab hold of and tangle with. Some will form their ow locks, so will get sucked into existing ones.

It does happen with everyone. It's the natural progression of locks

List of all dreadhead jobs!


dreads jobs employment issues

I worked as a cook for Whole Foods for 5 years. Note to anyone looking to get a job there: be careful. It's a horrible company to work for. They tend to not care about their employees at all.

Now I am a full time student again. I'll be working for my co-op's 6 months a year. I'll let you know where they are

Don't use it. First, they say that they use grapefruit and lime oils in it. Both have citric acid. That is horrible for your hair. It dries it out and makes it extremely brittle. Second, their website promotes wax. Which means they promote ignorance about locks. I doubt they have any idea how to grow healthy locks and just mix and match what they think would work.

Just stay away from their products in general

Scalp problems


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Oily hair means it's too acidic. Using ACV will only make it more acidic. Therefore more oily.

Get some Baking soda and wash with that. 1/2 cup of BS to every 5 cups of water. Normally you would have to use ACV to reset your scalps pH to a healthy level. But because it's already too acidic, wash a few times with just the BS until it stops being oily. Then, very gradually reintroduce the ACV.

In the BS wash, add some Teatree and Rosemary essential oils. They should help take care of the dandruff
