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