Amount of times you should wash your dreads and the amount I want to wash them.


Dread Maintenance

Hey marc, my hair is probably fairly similar to yours so ill tell u what mine is doing... first you will notice just a few hairs hanging together in a small group, then this will move up to a section of hair that looks kind of like spagetti. The reason for this is that your hairs have little shingles going down them that (when not flattened into submission with a comb) will hook onto surrounding hairs. This will be all that you notice for several months. This is the stage i am on, and i just split my first congos the other day. They were SUPER young, so they came out after sleeping on them and washing them the next day, but its a cycle man, the hair straightens out into those little spaghetties when you wash, then they dry for a couple days and funk back into those crazy shapes and you just hope for some loops and stuff to catch. My first baby dreads were almost like cotton balls in the back, but instead of being plush like cotton they were kinda krinkly - - hope this helps.Marc Fisher said:
Right so the last time I used shampoo to wash my hair was five to six days ago.

Ive been spraying my hair with salt water whenever I can get hold of my mothers little spray gun thing (is there an actual name for these?)
so like once every other day.

No baking soda yet but that will change within the next week now that ive got some money again (Y)

Couldnt find any thyme sadly :/

and to dry my hair Ive been using a hair dryer. however this I think is the problem which im about to bring up now.

My dreads arent forming, Theres no evidence that im aware of that they are even starting to form.
What should I bee looking out for with my natural dreads?
what evidence appears and when that they are begining to grow at any level?

Is it due to the use of the hair dryer?

Just getting starting


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Hey matt, I too stopped combing and cutting in Jan this year. The one thing to keep in mind is that everyone's scalp is slightly different - and starting early is a great way to find out what works best for you. Heres how i wash my hair:first before i get in the shower, i wash my hands, dry them and then scrub my whole scalp with my fingers. I rinse with hot (but not scalding!) water.then I lather and scrub my scalp with dr. b's peppermint soap, rinse very well.I then pour 2/3 acv + 1/3 water on my head ( i have a sprayh bottle 4 this), and scrub it into my scalp. i usually let it sit for a couple minutes to free up the oils that are in the dr. bronners. then to free it out i use hottish water, then finally rinse w cold water ( as cold as you can stand it. { I rinse my hair with water every two days and wash about every 3 or 4 day, btw}... to dry, i either shake my head, squeeze the water out by wringing my hair gently, sit outside in the sun, or do all 3. I use a hairdryer when its nasty out.An extra word of advice: your conditioned reaction when you hair starts to get messy is going to be to 'fix it' or obsess over it. This is honestly the most difficult aspect of dreading, next to people judging you of course. Just try to let your hair to itself. As it grows and you don't comb it, you will notice that it isn't as straight as you once thought it was. Curves, bends, maybe even some curls will showup. Good luck, and if u have any questions don't hesitate to ask one of us!Matt said:
So I plan on starting to let my hair dread naturally and washing it with baking soda and the acv rinse but is there a technique when you're starting with straight hair? I don't want to wash it wrong or dry it wrong to slow the dreading process down. Any advice is grately appreciated, hopefully ill get a picture up soon to show everyone what I'm working with

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I've noticed over the last couple weeks fleas hopping off me... is this something that I need to be extremely concerned about? will fleas actually damage scalp health? Also, I use a hairdryer maybe once every month - month and a half, will occassionally using a hairdryer harm the hair? p.s. I only use it if i have to shower at night, or when it's overcast and crappy outside.
