Managing Curly Dreads
the curls add character to dreads...
i would love if my dreads stay curly forever.
All of my formed dreads are so curly that now you can't notice them looking at my hair, but i love all of them
in fact i bought the goddess bar to my girlfriend [i'll give her as a gift, she will love it for hair and body wash].
My fear about messing too much with my hair is that... i'm at 9 months of full neglect, but i have some new 9 baby still sections [i have completelly ripped 3 dreads into 9 thin sections], and lots of stray hairs...
well it will arrive here tomorrow or friday, i'm anxious to wash my hair with these products, because i have hard water here, and baking soda leave some kind of oily residue at my scalp no matter the quantity of bs i put in my mix. And with these products i think i'll save time on the bath.
thanks for the response!
amazing informations here.
I ordered 3 bars [teatreet & rosemary, patchouli and goddess] and the lockin up liquid shampoo [dragons blood].
So, the liquid is best than the bars for baby dreads?
How can i work the liquid shampoo on my hair? [do i need to touch the hair? how can i wash without messing too much with my hair?]
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...
8.5 months now! I've updated the pictures on the first post!
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]
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.
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!
