moroccan argan oil?


Dread Products

Hi, added comment on your page, but I think I deleted it. So I'll try again. I have never used that oil, but would not recommend using any directly on the scalp. Being only 1 month in, it would slip out any knots trying to form. I notice you are using the baking soda ACV wash, good for you. Are your measurements correct: 1/2 cup baking soda to 5 cups water: this must be rinsed out extremely well (after leaving on for 20 minutes) before you use the ACV: 1 capful to 5 cups water (leave on for 1 minute), rinse well also

For a couple of washes to help get rid of the dandruff make the baking soda bit stronger add rosemary oil maybe peppermint too. Rosemary oil is great for helping solve dandruff issues and keeping it away.

Another good tip is to rinse the scalp with as cold water as you can take at the very end of your shower, this also helps to keep dandruff away. Good luck, and hey, what does the Morocccan Argan oil smell like?

My dread story so far.


Introduce Yourself

Welcome Lindi,, they look great, that's why you get the compliments in your hometown. Glad you have been reading up on the site. I hope you never crochet or palm roll again. In the long run it affects the strength of the dread, with crocheting it breaks the hairs inside the dread, eventually causing them to break off in your hand. But you have stopped which is fantastic.

Roberto, I just googled it for you, the recommended max is 5000 mcg a day. Soaring Eagle and the site recommend 1500mcg daily. He has computer problems this eve I believe, so he may not answer tonight. .....Just checked some more for you 5000-6000mcg is good, there is no damage done for a stronger strength. So your fine with those. Hope this helps

So sick of people bashing the natural method. I have begun to voice my opinion.


Dreading Methods

If EVERYONE would realize we are human beings, regardless of colour, then the world would be a much better place.... Well... except we still have politicians.

Lint Attack


Introduce Yourself

Hi Sarah, lint forms very easily. We can get it from yarn tams and scarves, those little balls just attach and stick in there. You can even get if off a favorite knitted sweater if you where it often. Another way lint gets in 'em is from our towels. I've purchased a couple of large towels the same colour as my hair, that way when the lint balls are left behind, they are not as noticeable.

Lock splitting in 2


General Questions

Hi Anna, wow, you are still in the infant stage, don't worry about how loose the root area is. With the twit & rip method, you may have made one section tighter than the other, so they are having a bit of difficulty joining together, but they will, no worries there. Not sure with the photo, but are the two joined dreads more than an inch at the area where it meets the scalp? If it is, perhaps you should divide them again, only being 3 months into your journey, it should be easy to do.

When you try to separate them, start at the bottom and work your way up. Eventually you will get to an area that will divide the two how they want to be. Better to do it now, they won't be that far behind the others then.

Happy Dreading & Cheers
