Help! Save My Dreads

Still, washing every day isn't good. And going to bed with wet locks can be detrimental.

If you wash later in the day, and you locks take a while to dry, it's ok to hit them with a blow dryer for just a few minutes at a time. Move it around a lot so your hair doesn't get heat damaged

Help! Save My Dreads

When I don't want to wash my locks, I just tie them up in a bun. Some of the stray hairs get wet around my neckline, but the majority of them don't get wet.

You could wear some type of shower cap if they'd fit under it. But wearing them in a bun is just as good, and much easier

my hair thus far.

They look 100% better. Well, not 100%. But much much healthier. That frizz is coming in nice. I can still see a bit f scalp, but it hasn't been that long. In another week, you shouldn't be able to see any.

Good job

Dreadlocks in the work place


General Talk

If you are growing them for any type of spiritual reasons, you are protected by the first amendment. No employer is allowed to not hire or fire you for them. That said, I don't know everything about Oregon's Laws. If it is am "At will" state, they don't have to give you a reason to not hire or fire you. It's up to you to prove that your locks were the reason. I live in Pa, and we are an At Will state.

You could always tie them back for the interview. When in a ponytail, it's usually hard to see they are locks from the front. Ad they look neat and orderly. If you don't want to tie them back, of if they aren't long enough yet, you can get a plain black tam. Tams are generally professional, at least if they aren't bright and colourful. Black ones look nice and hide everything. Plus women are usually expected to have some sort ofaccessorywith their outfits.

And if they question you about a religious motive, you are legally allowed to refuse answering them. Any questions about religious beliefs are strictly illegal to ask.

Plus, if you are qualified for the job, and have goodreferences, you will be fine.

ITCHY! :(

Completely understood. I didn't know that. I know it's pungent. But I didn't know about it with kids. Thanks for telling me. My wife and I are thinking about having kids in the near future

Yeah. BS is a base. If you use too much, it will make you itch terribly.

How's peppermint dangerous? I know it's strong. Too much can actually burn you. But if you kept it out of reach? or is the smell of it bad for them?

While waiting for wax and shampoo...

You'd need a non residue soap. Ask Heather on this site about what ingredients you should stay away from completely. She'd know best. But you want to stay away from things with coconut oil, and glycerin, and sulfates/sulfites, methylisothoazolinone, Any other thoazolinone's

"A big mixing bowl" doesn't really help much. The best mixture is between 5 Tbls - 1/2 cup of BS to 5 cups of water. Then about 1/2 tbls - 1 tbls ACV to 5 cups of water.
ACV does tend to unravle locks a bit. It's an acid. But it's needed to reset the pH of your scalp.

What oils do you use? Peppermint is great for relieving itchies

This is Vicki's page. She's the one who makes the soaps. contact her directly. If there is a tracking number they gave you, call or go to your post office. I'm not sure how it works in Denmark, but they might have stopped it at customs because there's a gel they can't identify or something.

Your locks should be fuzzy and messy. It's just part of how they form. The 4th month is generally the messiest, so you should be a little past that. They will start to come together nicely soon.

Normal soap is a bad idea. If you can get baking soda and apple cider vinegar, use that for now until your soaps come

How are you washing? What ratios of BS and ACV? are you rinsing the BS out before you do the ACV rinse?
