Dreadlocks and Dandruff!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

The ratio for regular washing is .24 liters of baking soda to 1.18 liters water. Mix well in a jug and pour all over scalp. Now grab a book & sit in the tub to read. That's gonna sit on your head for 20 minutes. You can add drops of rosemary, peppermint, and tea tree essential oils to help, just add to the baking soda wash. After the 20 minutes, rinse out really, really well. Then pour on a mixture of apple cider vinegar & water, the ratio is 1-2 capfulls of ACV to 1.18 liter water. Leave this on for only 1-2 minutes & rinse well. The ACV balances the PH in the hair and conditions it. Finish your shower with a cold rinse :)

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Are you washing with baking soda at all, or what are you using? At the end of your shower are you rinsing your head with as cold water as you can take?, that will help if you do this each time.

At the top of the site is the dreaducation tab, click that & then click the dread maintenance. There is a section on how to clean dreads. At the bottom is how to cleanse cleanse, click that one for your info.

new dreads and dry scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

You're only using 1-2 capfuls of ACV with 5 cups water. If you hate vinegar, then don't drink it.

new dreads and dry scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

You can scent your apple cider vinegar with rosemary, tea tree and peppermint essential oils. For newly forming dreads, just use a few drops of each. These oils are great for itchy scalps. The ACV balances the PH in the hair & conditions it, you need this when using baking soda, unless you have very oily hair.

Use the search bar at the top of the site & type in itchy scalp. You'll get lots to read. Good Luck

Going to a water park tomorrow, rut roh.


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Have fun. Just before you go in the water, shower and get your hair nice and soaked. At the end of your fun time shower all that chlorine out really well. Here's a tip for you: always use a towel the same colour as your hair, that way any towel lint that goes in your hair will not be noticed. :)

roots too small?


General Questions

Yep, what ever the size of the section where it meets the scalp will be the size of the dread. A girl does want to look a certain way for herself, good luck with everything. Peace

Don't use LUSH products on Dreads


Dread Products

Yesterday I sent an email to LUSH to ask about their products, as I can drive to a store. The following reply was sent back to me today:

"Unfortunately none of our products are specifically meant for use on dreadlocks. We do carry a number of gentle solid shampoos that dont lather a huge amount, such as Gentle Lentil and Trichomania, however, I wouldn't be able to guarantee that they would do the trick as they could still leave a residue which may be difficult to remove completely, also, as they are soft products, they may not be optimal as they don't work incredibly well with soft water. This being said, I think that you may be best to use a dreadlock specific shampoo."

Hope anyone considering using these will change their minds. Tomorrow I WILL be ordering from dreadlock shampoo for the first time to use Vickie's wonderful products.

Namaste' my friends
