HELP THINNING DREAD!


Help! Save My Dreads

I also have the same problem. I also palmroll a little bit from time to time. Maybe once a month. I'm going to stop palmrolling and see if that helps. Reply to this in a few months to say whether your dreads are back to normal or not.

Let's try this again..


Dread Maintenance

Looks like Psoriasis. The way I deal with mine is add 8 to 10 drops of tea tree oil to the wash and after a few minutes under warm-hot water I can just rub the flaky skin away with fingers. Also moisturiser helps for a few hours. Also mine isn't as bad during the summer because of the strong sun.

Hope this helps

Help my adult dreads! Thin at root.......


Help! Save My Dreads

Oh yeah I have that too...are the dreads right behind your ear? Right behind my ear I have some dreads that are thinning. I think some people's hair must go through a cycle of thinning and thickening. Maybe you're just going through the cycle. Before tampering with the dreads, I'd wait for a few months to see if it gets thicker by itself. If not though, I'm not sure what can be done.

Dangers of sneaky hair tucking?


Dread Maintenance

The only one I can think of is if you tuck the hair into the wrong dread and it grows and interlocks with the dread next to it. Other than that, it's probably not a bad thing.

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline


Dreading Methods

I heard oils unclog the pores, allowing the hair follicles to grow hair again.

Also, my hair is also receding on one side and not so much on the other and I did nothing to pull it or anything.

Are sure the oils are bad?

SE is correct, stop the oils! Please post a picture. SE is also correct in stating that an individual does not usually recede on only one side. It is called "male pattern baldness" for a reason...it follows a distinct pattern! I really would like to see a picture. Do not shave anything off! You could be sufffering from Alopecia or have caused a stress loss from too much tension on your hair or scalp and shaving will not help. If it is loss due to something you did it will continue and you will become uneven again. What have you been doing to your hair? How old are you? Is there baldness in the family (mother's side)? Please do post a photo...I can tell right away if you show me what is going on. Also, are you a Vegan? I need some information but will be more than glad to help you.

Shaving baby dreads off-Receded hairline


Dreading Methods

Try this..

1. Thyme essential oil - 2 drops
2. Atlas cedarwood essential oil - 2 drops
3. Lavender essential oil -3 drops
4. Rosemary essential oil -3 drops
5. Jojoba oil - teaspoon
6. Grapeseed oil - 4 teaspoons

Baring in mind that it might not work at all. I'd reccommend using this every day for a month. After that, you'll know for sure if this worked or not. If you start to notice that it is causing more damage then obviously stop using it. It worked for me but more on one side of the head which is strange. I am also going balder on one side of my head (the right side) and I'm not using any chemicals and stuff like that.

Good luck

Washing tips


Introduce Yourself

I wouldn't recommend washing before going to bed because locks need to dry as fast as possible really otherwise they start to smell and what not. Certainly don't put a tam on while they're drying. I'm not sure about the ACV question, sorry. Lastly, tams might help with the locking process but it's not really guaranteed. Try it and see if it works for you.

Hope that helps.

adding hair from the misses...


Introduce Yourself

I am not sure that number 1 is very true. my sections are quite big but the dreads arent too thick.

soaringeagle said:
1 thinness of haor domnt mean thinness of dreads dread size is determined by section size only
2 youir going natural so the thyickenning stage at 6 months might just be beginning
3 a handfull of hair wont thicken them much at all
4 if they do thicken the new growth will still be thin
5 u can add hair but more for sentimental value then thickening
