DREADLOCK SECTIONING


General Questions

Hi there, they seem to be larger than 1 inch sections, you only have 3 dreads from ear to ear. The ideal size is nothing larger than a quarter coin. (25cents). Also, the bands should come out right away. They will make weak points in the sections. and if made from rubber, will dissolve when washing hair and stick to your sections. Larger dreads do look really cool, but take 1-2 days to dry when mature.....peace

BEAT THE HEAT!?!


General Questions

Hi KnotLady, You can even cut the sleeve off of a large or extra large t shirt to put on your head as a headband. Works wonders for me, it lifts the hair off of the neck without being in a ponytail, keeping the dreads nice and loose still. I get my t-shirts from the Thrift store and pick many different colors, although I have been known to cut my husbands, but don't tell him.

Dang I miss the heat, spring has just sprung here....Peace

A funeral and a brush :(


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Catnip, my condolences to you and your family. It is never an easy time in life when that happens, but I think that brushing them out will help your parents emotions somewhat. You have grown up tremendously by the decision you have made. My respect goes out to you. You probably won't understand how your decision to remove them affected your parents, but it goes deep, they will always remember you doing this for your grandfather.

Give your hair a good conditioning to help tame it down if it looks a little rough right now from taking them out. Nice that your boyfriend helped you out.

Peace to all of you

Wax is evil......what to expect when I de-wax?


General Questions

Best thing for your dreads. Without taking out the wax, down the road you may have gotten mold growing in them, now you won't have to worry about that. I hope you make a post and let others know how the Wax B Gone worked and how many times you needed to use it, it would sure help out others if you did....Glad you had your shrinkage already, I found that the most shocking part.....Peace

General Questions

I have never used wax, but I know that you can expect lightweight dreads. Dreads that will now blow with the wind. You will no longer have a scalp that hurts, no pulling, no heavy weight. I did not look how you first started your dreads. But they will probably start to loosen and loop and maybe even do some shrinkage. Then they will start to tighten up becoming the mature dreads. Your hair and head will be so happy. Always better late than never. They will be saved and they will be beautiful.....Peace

washing hair with dish soap.


General Questions

Hi Gary, If you want to wash your hair only with dish soap, Dawn is the best one to use. I would dilute it with water before using. You know how dish water is very foamy & bubbly, make sure to rinse it out well to get it all out. Your twists will still loosen to make mature dreads. Play with the ratio to find out what works best for you....Peace

Frizzy dreads


Dread Maintenance

Hi Rachel. Since you did the twist & rip method, you will have the frizzies. It may last one to two months, different for everybody. Wearing a tam will hide it, using aloe vera gel from the plant will tame it for a short while. You can even try getting your hair wet every morning to help speed up the length of time for the frizzies. Unfortunately there is no way to avoid them with T&R, I know you will be happy when they are gone, I called those my Troll days.....Peace
