Weird feeling


Dread Maintenance

Neutrogena shampoo should only be used 3 times a year if needed to remove residue from dreads, rinsing it out very very well.

If you like to use shampoo, order from dreadlockshampoo.com for residue free, natural dread products. Your baking soda ratio is 1/2 cup BS to 5 cups water. leave on for 10-20 minutes to exfoliate the scalp & rinse out well before doing the ACV rinse. Your head will love it if you finish off with a cold rinse too. Peace

Beautiful and inspiring scenery in NZ. I can almost see the Hobbit peeking over that hill way way in the back. Good luck working on that mass, you'll get there and then Soaring Eagle and the rest of us will keep your dreads happy. Peace

After doing the baking soda wash & rinsing it out well, then you do the ACV rinse. Mix 1-2 capfuls of ACV in 5 cups of water and pour on head, leave for one minute & rinse well. This will balance the PH & condition your dreads :) Peace

new to dreading,and got a question!


General Questions

Hi there. The twist & rip sections are not dreads, they are only sections made which will become dreads. T&R must loosen in order to do their journey into becoming mature dreads. They will also shrink, loop, zig & zag, frizz and slowly becoming the width of where the section meets the scalp. Some peoples T&R completely fall out, and that is okay. Never do them tight or it will slow down the process. Neglect hair dreads faster than t&r because they have to loosen first & neglect dreads start from loose hair.

As Soaring Eagle said, the tips need a drip line for the water, so you want them loose. You can put beads on the ends if you want, but it is not necessary.

So don't worry when they start to look nothing like they do now, that is their journey! Peace

It was a very nice response and I will still purchase some products from them because of it.

Backcombed & now neglecting


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Gramma may be old fashioned, but she WAS young once and remembers what it is like. All you have to do is be yourself, be kind and a good human being and Gramma will no longer notice the tattoos/dreads/piercings. Why? Because she won't care if you have a beautiful heart and a warm smile.:) Peace
