Twist & rip dreads day 2 ( need some help )


Dread Maintenance

Hi Teisha. I used the baking soda/acv for the entire first years of my T&R dreads, did not order the dreadlock shampoo until my 1st anniversary. The BS worked fantastic, in fact, the rest of my family uses it once a month on their straight hair. Just make sure you always use the ACV after BS, unless you have naturally very oily hair. I did not always use the ACV, and my hair was loosing its softness. The ACV is important, it balances the PH of the hair after using BS & is a safe conditioner.

As Baba Fats said, do not re-twist, let them do their thing now....just wash and separate any sections trying to join together.

A tip for you, dreads love lint, it is inevitable, so use a towel the same color as your hair so the towel lint is not noticable. White towels=White lint.

Enjoy your journey, Peace

Baby Dread Maintenance?


Dread Maintenance

Yep, don't re-twist, or re anything. Sections need to loosen in order to dread, with some people they completely come out. They are on their journey. Wash & separate, thats it. Peace

Scared..


General Talk

Keagan, my first answer was to the original member who posted this, Ashley, who is scared and has a feeling of dread. It was not geared to your post above mine.

Hope my other post to you with the info on AAA will be useful :)

It's all good, and thankyou:) any info is help at this moment

sorry Keagan, misunderstood. Do you have anyone in your family who is a member of AAA, the automobile association? They can get you free maps and the AAA will plan out your route for you. That way you just have to follow their highlighted directions. Take a cooler with you, the new lightweight folding kind, and stop at a store on your route, that way you will have your food and drinks, a much cheaper solution than restaurants. You will have a blast at the gathering, lucky you.

How do I fix this dread?


Dread Maintenance

Hair is stronger and thicker when wet with water, so it can take more "punishment" or stress while trying to separate.

Call Tucker said:

Barrellady is right about getting it wet. Hair rips MUCH easier when it is wet. That's why most people do their separating when they are in the shower.

BEESWAX ON HAIR


dread wax and dread kits recovery

First off, get your money back if you told them not to use wax. Do not iron your hair, yikes! Do not use olive oil. Get a bucket and soak your sections in the water/Dawn dish soap and squeeze out the wax. Order Wax B Gone to make sure it is all out. Chuck it up to a learning experience and start over. Good Luck

Perhaps you are not old enough to feel comfortable with all the planning etc that it takes. Why don't you wait a year to mature a little more emotionally so that you can joyfully experience your entire trip and the gathering. You will have a better time this way.
