tie em up on top of your head while you sleep (like a ponytail, but on the top instead of the back). it helps a bit with the frizz. And remember "love and patience is the best maintenance"
On this website, i have seen many people say that palm rolling is completely useless and is a waste of time. i have even seen people call it damaging/destructive. Although i am just a few months into my dread journey, i have found these statements not to be fully true. i find palm rolling to be useful on two instances. If you palm roll after a sea salt spray, i have noticed that the hairs that have wrapped into the dread during palm rolling, are more likely to stay in the dreads. also, if you wake up and your dreads are flat, which is a common problem that people have. palm rolling helps return dreads to a cylindrical shape. I would like to hear what everyone else has to say about palm rolling. feel free to add another use to the list below. Or if you feel palm rolling to be destructive, please share. thanks!
they are about 4 months old now but are maturing fast and are pretty damn tight because ive been using the sea salt wash to help them lock up. it would be a pain to comb them out and start over. is there an easier way to split them? its really only a couple dreads that have the big sections
my dreads have 1-2 inch sections with dreads about the size of a nickel coming out. will my dreads get thicker as they grow? is there anyway i can split my dreads into more dreads or something like that? i want to fill up all the weird areas of no dread.
My hair was pretty thin and i used this exact video to do mine. they are 3-4 months old and holding up very well. they never fell out and i dont palm roll all day. i recommend this method. if you think it will work, then do it. it worked for me and im happy with my dreads. but do what you want, its your hair.
i have pretty fine hair, but a lot of it.i used tnr. i recommend tnr with no wax. mine looked very fuzzy to start, but after a month or two they knotted up and are very nice. here is a sample dread. they are 3 1/2 months old now
i have 2 and a half month old twist and rip dreads. early on, they were looking very frizzy so i palm rolled them about once every 5-6 days for about 2 weeks with wax (this was before i knew the truth about wax). After learning about how bad dread wax is i stopped immediately. a couple days ago a friend had recommended using Dr. Bronner's soap/shampoo. It contains no conditioners and is made organically. He said using it will help get rid of the wax in my dreads. I have found other sources (friends, forums, blogs, etc) saying that Dr. Bronner's is safe to use on dreads. has anyone else heard anything about the using Dr. Bronner's to get rid wax buildup?
