attempt to create residue


Dread Products

As much as I like their shampoos, I had the same problem as Heather. And I live about 30 minutes from you Eagle, I don't know why, but when I used it, I had a muddy residue left over. It didn't leave a residue on my skin when I used it as a body wash. But in my hair, I had to rinse twice, for about 10 minutes each time to get it all out, and I had to squeeze and rub my locks hard to get it all out

So im looking to buy a wool beanie and im wondering if this is too tight?


General Questions

That one looks a bit slouchier. But beanies are too tight in general. Tighter hats hug your head and slow down knotting. They can also force locks to grow it flatter.

If you want a hat, get a tam. Etsy has plenty of them

Question about a shampoo


Dread Maintenance

not at all. Any shampoo with SLS is horrendous for your hair and for your health. It's listed in the top 5 most toxic ingredients.

Everything in there is man made. When looking for shampoo, you should look for something more natural. Almost all of those ingredients will harm your hair and health.

Well, you should definitely wash you hair. You should be washing between 1-3 times a week. Dr. Bronners is good. But it doesn't work well in hard water. The BS/ACV wash is my favorite, but again you need distilled or soft water. The best soap for locks are from dreadlockshampoo.com. They work in hard or soft water. They leave your hair and scalp feeling amazing and smelling awesome.

You should be doing nothing. Locks don't form over night. Not even in a week. In fact, they will keep unraveling and reknotting for the next few months. On average it takes about a year for mature locks to form.

Don't rubber band them, ever. And there's no need to tie them yet. Wrapping locks is more for decoration than for helping them knot. Bands tend to squeeze your locks too tightly and get sucked into the lock where they can rot.

All in all. Your locks are days old. That's nothing in terms of how long they will take to mature. Just be patient. TnR and back combing are methods used to blueprint where the sections will be. They don't form locks. They will unravel. That's natural. Check out the timeline forums

On the right track for dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

About. They'll always seem a bit thinner at the roots, but the body of the lock will be roughly 1 inch thick

1 inch is fine. Bigger and you run into having to spend an extra 10-20 minutes in the bathroom every time you wash them. The hold more soap and more water. So they take more time to rinse, and more time to dry. If you notice yours taking a while to dry, let me know. I can give you some pointers

Sorry. if you did your whole head, would you only have 2-3 locks on the back of your head? Or would more fit?

1 inch sections are about as big as you would want to go unless you want super thick locks. When they mature, and grow out, locks take on the width of the section. So you'll end up having locks that are an inch or bigger wide. If you want thinner locks in the end, you'll want to make the sections smaller.

If you do want bigger locks, let me know. They take special care for in washing and drying
