Anyone used these on their dreads. Are they too conditioning? I'm seven months into the ever evolving journey.

No , I rinsed th bs out first and then just rinsed with the acv afterwards. I didnt leave the acv on for long as Im only 6 months in so have baby dreadsThey do feel a teeny bit dry this morning, but I could be me being paranoid.. Should I use some aloe or cocoa butter do you think? or leave them be? The undreaded ends look and feel soft and shiny.
Hi SE, My hair is lighter than its natural colour at the moment. I was thinking of putting a stocking over sections and one over my scalp. Not sure if it would work but I don't know if henna would cause damage if it got trapped in dreads? Would it cause rot?
Not being able to use BS/ACV would be a pain wouldnt it?
Hi, Started my dread journey about 9 weeks ago. I backcombed and then have just separated and washed with BS followed with ACV rinse. My hair has been chemically dyed for years but I dont want to do this anymore and would like to start using henna to darken my hair to get it nearer its natural colour.
Does anyone haveany experience of dying baby dreads with Henna. I thought if i tried dying them through a stocking it would stop the henna getting stuck. Also, would it be too conditioning?
Any advice would be great! xx
Since I've started my dread journey I've had a complete stranger tell me I need to put wax in my hair. I also had a friend of a friend tell me I should crochet.
I just smile and say nothing...I love my messy head and think I will miss it when things get a bit tamer.
You know in your heart that you are doing things the right way and will have beautiful, unique dreads one day!
I wondering if your hubby is maybe feeling a little bit insecure. Did he look after you quite a bit during chemo etc? I don't know but I'm guessing that beating cancer has left you with a whole different outlook and maybe he finds that a bit scarey? You are alive and celebrating life. Enjoy your dreads...you deserve to enjoy them. He will just have to get used to them.:D xx
I've looked at other peoples dreads for about the last 25 yearsand thought they looked wonderful but was never brave enough to let my own hair dread. I was always worried about not being able to get a job or losing my hair if I didnt like them.Things changed for me in May last year when my partner of 15 years was diagnosed with terminal cancer. By the time they had diagnosed it had spread throughout his body. He was so very brave even though he was in terrible pain most of the time. His only concern about dying was about leaving our little boy without his dad. He died in July last year and as you can imagine my world was turned upside down. It made me really look at my own time on this earth and made me realise that living in the moment is truly the only way to cope and try to be happy..so I have started the dread journey and I am loving it. For me it is also part of a healing process and makes me feel connected to ..everything..which in turn makes me feel connected to my lovely man. Sorry, it might all sound corny but its how it is for me.
