naturally blunted tips


General Questions

Hi all. I have about 10 naturally blunted tips out of about 60-70 dreads. Was hoping that they would loosen on their own, but they are tight balls that I think formed mostly from tams or head bands I wore during the early messy stages. The others are beautiful wispy ends.

Since they are not loosening on their own, should I work on them with my fingers with the aid of essential oils to un-blunt them? If so, how many strands should I work out of each dread to give them a drip line?

Normally I let my dreads do their own thing, in their own time and would never change how THEY want to look & form, but in this cause I want to avoid any future problems due to blunted ends as my dreads ARE for life.

They are 1 year & 1 day old done by twist & rip after natural sectioning. The blunted sections started their journey from almost down to my waist and to now above my shoulders.

Thanks and Peace

For the baking soda, mix 1/2 cups BS with 5 Cups water, pour on head, don't scrub & leave on for 10-20 minutes, then rinse rinse rinse. Then for the Apple Cider Vinegar, mix 1-2 capfulls into 5 cups of water, pour on head and rinse right away. Finish off with a cold water rinse.

The ratio is important for the baking soda to do it's job. Try with the measurements above. Peace

just under half a cup of baking soda and a full basin of hot water (plus some essential oils and sea salt), 3 table spoons of ACV and another full basin of water.

General Questions

What about using the web and looking up wig makers in Hollywood CA. I would think you could latch on to one that makes wigs for the movies. Have you tried this route already? (let them know it is not for costume)

try googling Erwin Kupitz, Wigmaker he does hollywood movies

FIRST POSITIVE COMMENT ON MY HAIR!!!


General Talk

A random comment does mean so much to us. The first year we may have days of discouragement when we see a reflection of ourselves in the mirror, window, etc and see what a mess our hair must look to others. They can't see what we envision 3 or 5 years from today. So Ojas, that means you are on your way to dreads, they were NOTICED !!... It only takes one positive vibe to turn it all around.... Congratulations on the happy feeling and on your journey.

1 month old dreads


General Questions

Your profile only said you used Jamaican Mango & Lime gel, that wax needs to come out. Please read the forums on wax in dreads.

I swear by Water.


Dread Maintenance

Are you washing 5 or 6 times a week? That is too much, I think that your sections will start to mold being damp that often. For washing: 2 or 3 times a week in the beginning, and now you are at your 4th month so probably 2 times a week.

Happy you like this set better. Peace
