Hair loss from root threading and extensions - does it grow back?


salon and loctician dreads recovery

DreadyKat, please don't do anything else to your hair right now in regards to coloring, even henna. At the moment you have extreme scalp damage and need to let that heal first. :)

I think I'm just going to neglect it.


Dreading Methods

You made a great decision to start with the neglect method. I went neglect only long enough to let my hair naturally section, then I did T&R and even though I was careful not to go tight, some of the skinnier were, so that is why I think I have some knobby looking ends on them. The ones that were done very loosely are coming along beautifully and are forming all the way up the section. If I could do it all over again, like if time turned back, then I would go all the way neglect. So good choice & happy dreading.

Glad you have dread shampoo too.

I wonder how these ones at the sides hang on with all the weight of the bun. That would hurt like hell, look at the pulling.

Salon Damage


salon and loctician dreads recovery

Found this picture on Google Images and wanted to share it with members going to, or thinking of going to a salon. It has been posted here before, but I wanted the newer members to see this.

Look at the hair loss.... Look how tight they are at the roots.... her twists are so tight that the hair has been pulled out by the roots. Roots should NEVER be tight to the scalp, every time the locks move it pulls on the hairs & roots. When you notice your roots are loose, don't worry, they need to be. When the gentle wind blows your dreads, you'll enjoy the dance your locks do as they won't be pulling at your scalp, you may even dance with them.

Do not get your dreads worked on, do not re-twist, let them grow and become a part of you.

The only maintenance required for healthy locks is to keep em clean and separate any joining locks. That's it, that's all you have to do. Guaranteed this photo will never happen to you.

Peace all

Dez, the Island Oil is no good for your dreads. Use essential oils only if you are Caucasian.

After dreadlocks????


General Talk

That's funny, you asked "Have any of you guys though about, what would you do if I woke up one morning and didn't want dreads anymore?" Well Nynne, I am a straight married woman, so I don't think I would wake up beside you and hear you say you don't want dreads anymore, but if somehow I was there, I'd konk you on top of the head to put you back asleep and the next time you wake you would forget about it and embrace your locks.

Well water, hot water tanks


Dread Maintenance

Update. so the service man forgot to bring a certain kind of bleach to clean out the water tank first, he could not finish the job & will be back Monday. The tank was drained & the photo shows what was in the bottom of it, came out of the taps and was created by well water & magnesium rod. Yuck. So traces of this crap slowly comes out with the hot water when showering, not noticeable to the eye. I am sure that my dreads will feel completely different when the job is finished. Curious if soap will react differently too.
