Hey everybody!


Introduce Yourself

dude i kinda have the opposite of your hair... mine is thick and a little wavy.but i think your dreads look great man. just let dreads be dreads. the tips will start to pull together in a few weeks/months. i tried to blunt mine, but they just fell right back out and look all whispy. so im just leaving mine like that too. as for the frizz on the top of your head, it will get better on its own and tangle up with the rest of the dread. but you will always have frizz. it wont be nearly as much but it will be there. just have patients and let nature's mysterious ways suprise you.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap: Oily residue?


Dread Products

so i went out and bought some peppermint (liquid) Dr. Bronner's and tried it for the first time. I diluted it pretty well and washed my hair (no dreads yet). it was weird because my hair didnt feel clean until i dried it. after it was dry it felt extremely clean and smelled really good too. its the second week of washing with Dr. Bronner's liquid soap and still no problems with oily or nasty oils in my hair. i live in Tennessee so the water here is different from California. and i dnt know if it matters but maybe its the thickness of your loose hair mixed with the water type & or the dilution of the soap. my hair is really, really thick so I could go like a week or so before it gets nasty.... idk if that means anything to you but i hope i helped a little.

General Questions

those are some really cool ideas! thank youKnottysleeves said:
Do you have a bead shop where you live? You can get some amazing stuff at bead shops and usually at decent prices. If you can't find a bead large enough to fit your dreads, you could always buy some little charms (they're usually less than $1 each) and just sew them on with thread, or put them onto a wire wrapped around your dread.

I found some wooden so-called "hair beads" at Michaels a few years ago, but they were cheaply made and the insides were all rough and splintery. Easy to fix with a piece of sandpaper and some lacquer, if you have it.

If you have a large drill bit or a Dremel tool, you could also scour the park for some chunks of wood and make your own bead.

Another way to make your own beads (if you can afford it) is to buy some Fimo or Sculpey clay at Michaels. Just form it with your hands however you want, make a hole in the middle with a pencil or something, and bake it in the oven. They're really easy to make. You can also make a spiral that you just twist onto your dread.

"Washing da dreads"?


Dread Products

i know right... i would love to live near the ocean but sadly im landlocked in tennessee. but i have bought some sea salt with no iodide in it and that will be just fine. i wish plant stores sold ackee but oh well.bob_marlo said:
Wow this seems pretty cool, I would love to try this out. You can't get no more natural than that, he straight up made his own paste/goo/or shampoo. What ever it is I would love to try it with some sea water. It would be awesome if you could get this stuff in a bottle so that you could wash your dreads at home for those of us who don't live near the ocean.

"Washing da dreads"?


Dread Products

so i was watching dreadlock videos on youtube trying to learn as much as possibe before i dread my hair (im more of a visual learner) and i stumbled across this video... its a man washing his dreads in the ocean and kinda meditating a little. but he breaks up these leaves and washes his dreads with him.. im guessing they are alloe leaves but i really dnt know. ive heard of people beating leaves to wash dreads but i never understood what it does, whats in it thats good for you, or if its just something people do idk. thanks so much for any feedback. im just open minded and learning. so here's the link to the video so you can see what im talking about...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHCy4HmKhco
