Am I balding?? Need help please


Dread Maintenance

Hi Dez. Sorry to hear about your hair loss, but it is an unfortunate outcome of retwisting dreads. Every time your locks are twisted, hairs are pulled out by the roots, or broken elsewhere in the dread. This causes thinning of the dread and even dreads falling off. Palmrolling only causes breakage and very temporary tidyness, very temporary, so don't do this anymore either. Your hair will recover with time, new hairs will need to grow and thicken up your dreads at the scalp, but only if you stop going to a salon, twisting & palmrolling.. No hooks either, just let them be and they will become happy for you.

When will my pretties grow again?


General Questions

Hi Taylor. It sucks that we loose length for hair to dread. Know it needs to, but it still sucks. It takes about two years to notice growth. Our hair grows all through the journey, but because it is shrinking, we don't notice it. But by year two, most of us will have somewhat mature locks, so no more shrinking, just growth.

Anyone who never separated?


Dread Maintenance

I've seen a few on Google images where the hair is one, two or three dreads only. It must be sooo heavy

Fringe help needed


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Hi there. If you usually have bangs, keep them for awhile. Dreads look lovely with or without them. One day you may want to let 'em dread, you'll know when the time comes. Enjoy your journey and welcome to this great site: I find all the information I need here. Happy dreading.

Washing question


Help! Save My Dreads

Hi Kirsty, not sure if you know, but I have read that Dr. Bronners does not work properly with hard water. It may leave a type of residue.

Kirsty said:

Thanks so much. I was thinking that about the loctition too! I am glad she did not do a great job though lol. I will keep up the washing. I just received some dr bronners lavender and pepeprmint soap. so am excited to give it a whirl. I just feel like i am getting off so easy not being all itchy and greasy. I used to be a once a day hair washer.

Do I re-do my dreads


Introduce Yourself

Hi Devan. I would remove the wax for many reasons. Wax holds moisture inside the dread and causes mold, odors and dirt to stick inside of it. Dirt can't totally wash from the dread because it is stuck to wax. There is a photo on this site from a gal who took a pic of her boyfriends pillowcase...eww...he used was and the pillow case was all stained. Wax can also stain the shoulders and back of your shirts by slightly melting on a very hot day. Dreads with no wax, gels etc will free form clean, healthy locks which require washing. Newly forming dreads should be washed 2-3 times a week, bet they don't recommend that with wax. Glad you found this site to help you get the healthiest locks possible. Should you choose to remove the wax. use the dreaducation tab at the top of this page to help you along the way. All the best
