Not sure if this is right...


Dread Maintenance

As for our resident chemist, 1/2 a cup BS for 5 cups of water is average. For some water types, it may be too much or too little. But usually just right. And 5 Tbls is only a little under 1/2 a cup.

Seperation frustration


General Talk

Is it possible to sleep on your side? I know it can be hard. I can only sleep on my left side or back. Never felt comfortable on my right side. But if you can sleep on a different side, you may see the mess easier to untanlge

General Talk

I hear you. Let me guess... You sleep on your back? Most people find that they see more knotting and congoing on the side they sleep on.

Check out my separating tutorial. Part 2 will be coming around at some point (When I actually have locks that need separating. Mature locks don't need it as often)

Natural no comb method.


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Shampoo: dreadlockshampoo.com They have multiple scents to pick from. I love the teatree bar. Plus they work in both hard and soft water.

Dr. Bornners is good, but only washes out in soft water.

But the BS/ACV wasg is my favorite. But again, it only works in soft or distilled water

White stuff that isn't mold?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Wonderful. That's great to hear. I've always thought about dunking my head in a bowl of the stuff. Haven't done it yet. It works well for you?

Do you ever rinse your hair instead of washing


Dread Maintenance

If they are really babies, and dry out super fast, it won't hurt it. But when they start forming knots and maturing a bit, you won't be washing every day. So it's better to start acclimating your scalp to washing less often now

ok i need help!! calling all veteran dreadies!!!


Help! Save My Dreads

Ok, I didn't see anyone mention it.

So, when you do the BS/ACV wash, pour on the BS mixture. wait about 10 minutes, then rinse it off with water first, before doing the ACV rinse. When BS and vinegar mix they create gas and heat. did you feel any fizzing on your scalp when you poured on the ACV? That's not what's supposed to happen. once won't hurt your hair. a few times probably wouldn't. But the chemical reaction is not good to expose yourself to without good ventilation and gloves on.

So just remember to rinse the BS off before using ACV
