natural dreads and work


Introduce Yourself

You could use aloe to help keep it looking neat and tidy when you're at work.

If your hair is longer you can use an elastic band or something to put it up. That's just a thought.

Preparing


Introduce Yourself

I was my hair 3 times a weeek. Monday Wednesday and Friday (days vary depending on my schedule.)

I do salt water spray once a week. It doesn't seem to make a huge difference, it just kind of dries and frizzes up the hair a little. SE suggest doing it before washing. Don't leave it in too long (like all day) or your scalp with be very upset with you.

That's my newbie advice. I'm still at the beginning stages myself, I hope that helps until someone who is more in the know pops in. :)

Some Assembly Required


Dreading Methods

I had to read this a few times. It's a great reminder, the dreading is a process but not a chore. :)

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

Here's a more recent update.

The back and front are coming along nicely but the sides (left and right) are both still kind of loose. But, I can't complain, at least it's progress. :)

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

Yea. I took em with my cellphoen camera. when I do my next upddate (The 6 month mark) I'll touch em up in Photoshop first or use a better camera. I actually had someone recognize them as dreads last week, which was pretty exciting giving their undready state. I was at the hospital for a checkup and this guy with his two young daughters looks over and says "DREADS?!" ANd I said "I'm working on em." And he started talking about different people he knew with dreads, it was pretty cool.

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

Thanks. Yea, my hair is naturally pretty curly and wavy, so it's been going pretty crazy. I had to separate one massive mat yesterday because few of then just kinda flattened up and started eating eachother.

Saved Dreads Success Stories

Yea, the same crap and worse are in the shampoo, so I'm not even bothering. I have some Doctor Bronner's(SP?) ordered and on the way, but I've been doing the BS & ACV rinse and loving it. Time to keep it all natural all the way. :)
