Should I be concerned?


Introduce Yourself

Before you use it type in Shea butter in the search tab near the top left and see what others have said about it. Mine are only 2 weeks shy of a year, so I have not used anything on them. That tab is great, type in any word and tons of comments will pop up for you. A great way to learn about other members pros and cons from their own experience.

Loops and zig zags happen when the hair is doing its journey to maturity. Yours are just starting to do it a little further in time. Maybe due to wax residue?

You can't get rid of most of the wax Jenny, you must get rid of it all. Hair will not dread properly when there is any residue of wax inside the section. Are there any other products or maintenance you are using that is not listed on your profile? We all can help you more if we know everything.

Black Cube block type thing

That's funny. If I bought this product, not only can I manufacture my dreads, but I can clean my sneakers, polish my shoes, groom my pet, massage my pet, clean my suede, polish my silverware, wash my pots, dry my glasses, have a vibrating hair brush AND use as a feather duster.

Your hair and scalp always feels like there is some stuff left in em....The cause of this could be your type of water. Hard water reacts differently to some soaps and shampoos, leaving behind a residue & the feeling that you have.

Good morning Mikhail. For dreads during the first year, I recommend the baking soda, apple cider vinegar rinse. This is a no touch, no scrub method that will get all the natural gunk off the scalp.

Mix 1/2 cup (.24 liters) Baking Soda to 5 cups (1.18 liters)of Water. Mix the two and pour on head, leave it on for 20 minutes, it will clean the scalp and hair. After the 20 minutes, rinse, rinse & rinse well. Next mix 1 capful of Apple Cider Vinegar to 5 cups water & pour over head, leave on for 1 minute only and then rinse well. The ACV conditions the hair and balances the PH

This is all you have to do, no scrubbing at all like you do with shampoos. Scrubbing removes knots trying to form, so this is best for forming dreads.

If you find you need a good deep cleanse for your first wash, add more baking soda-just make sure you rinse it all out. Never mix the BS & ACV together, as you will get a chemical reaction.

Wen shampoo?


Dread Maintenance

I previously asked this question myself. Wren shampoo is made in such a way that it replaces all your hair care products: shampoo, conditioner, etc, you just need the one bottle for all your hair care. That is fantastic if you want the silky straight hair that they advertise. For dreadies, it is a big NO. The products they put in Wren will make your knots slip out and loosen any that are trying to mature.

Great for non dreadied hair only, sorry

what should i do about this loose hair in the front?


Help! Save My Dreads

You can use hand wipes, a wet hand with soap and water, a wet facecloth, anything to wash the forehead and hairline to the ears. I put rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball and wipe there first thing in morning and then at night. My European father handed me down his oily skin.

Help! Save My Dreads

The hair dreads very slowly there for some, and sometimes not at all. The reason for this is oily skin, especially at the hairline/forehead. Make a point to wash the oil off that area a few times a day & in awhile you will notice them starting to dread. Peace
