I feel like my natural dreads are at such a blah stage. A few questions.


General Questions

i felt like this... i haven't separated on the first 5 months.

Then i felt the need to separate and i got a lot of loosen hair from this. Now i'm on the 8.5 months mark, and i still have lots of loosen hair, and most of my sections on the sides are not dreaded at all, i still have some sections that are just normal hair

forget about it... the time will solve your problems...

Anyone who never separated?


Dread Maintenance

i tried that... and i got fat sections that were driving me crazy... i had to rip a lot of dreads, and i broke lots of hair too, after 5 months without separating.

And i just had undone lots of progress because i didn't separated before... now i'm separating EVERYDAY [as my hair tangles fast] but things are going good... I plant to combine dreads in the near future after they are all formed [but now i prefer THIN dreads]

A Good Baking Soda/ ACV Recipe?


Introduce Yourself

i think that you should discover for yourself. None of the recipes here worked for me.

To clean my head i have to use an great quantity of baking soda. 80 grams of baking soda to 1 liter of water.

Less than this will leave dandruff and dead skin on my hair.

Is it okay to use vegan shampoo?


General Questions

I have to use BIG QUANTITIES of baking soda, and i have hard water... Well i use 80g of baking soda in every wash [if i use less the dandruff will still be on my hair]... yeah i have to buy everytime to wash... but i can look into other options... In dollars the price i pay of an 80 gram packet is something like $2,00...

but if i buy an 25 KILOGRAMS of baking soda it will be cheap, something like $13 and it will last forever... maybe i'll buy it!

Thanks SE, i'll try buying the giant pack of bs!

Is it okay to use vegan shampoo?


General Questions

Well i can't afford to buy BS every time i wash my hair, nor can i afford to pay more than 10 times the price of the dreadlockshampoo.com bars [yeah, if i try to import them to my country the final price will be something like $80 dollars, on our local currency, R$160 for just one bar]

I recently found a brand of vegan poo here, that says that they are completely natural, free of SLS, RESIDUE FREE [yeah, residue free and not anti-residue] and i want to know if the ingredients are ok, and if i should dilute the poo in water in a container, like i do with bs/acv?

Jojoba 100% Vegetal Shampoo ingredients:

jojoba oil, Sweet Almond Oil, organic palm kernel oil, rice oil, ylan ylan oil

Jaborandi and Olive 100% Vegetal Shampoo ingredients:
Pilocarpus microphyllus oil, organic palm kernel oil, olive, castor beans, Natural Glycolic Extract of Jaborandi (Pilocarpus microphyllus), salvia essential oil, rosemary essential oil, cedar essential oil

It is okay to buy them? The site say they are free of SLS, and aromatizants, and conservants, they are 100% natural.

Thank you!

Thanks! Just hitted the six month mark on day 2 of this month... I updated the pictures of the sixth month...

Actually i have lots of loops that resembles sea horses, pig tails, and crazy S shapes, most on the back of my head... First i planned to have big congos, but now i'm separating and letting my hair with a crazy and natural pattern of sizes...

I'm having trouble with a LOT of loosen hair, and most of them are hair that i had pulled to separate some dreads that were congoing.

Now i'm using essential oils on my hair washes [i'm using rosemary essential oil, and "spike lavender" essential oil], hoping that i will treat my scalp psoriasis... I felt some relief and i feel that my hair is making less dandruff flakes]...

I'm washing with Neutrogena anti-residue every 10 days and with bs/acv every 3 days [bs makes residue, in some weeks, i think that is because of hard water], and i plan to import some dreadlockshampoo bars [it will be very expensive because it will be taxed here in Brazil but i think it worth it]
