Thinning dreads even after combining roots.


Help! Save My Dreads

Hey i have had dreads for about 4 years now and they are fully locked except for the tips.

anyway i had about 130 dreads when i first started and recently they started thinning out so i combined them.

after combining them the roots were just as thin as both the dreads separate if not thinner witch didnt make sense to me.

so ive cut off the extra dreads witch was about 20 of them and my dreads are still thinning.

is there any way to stop it? or is this just part of dreads getting longer?

i use tea tree oil apple cider vinegar and baking soda mix. i wash about once a week i used to every three days but it got tedious.

i noticed i rip my dreads apart more often now to keep em separate cause the longer they go together it seems the more hair that rips out of them.

Jobs or professions?


General Questions

Yea dreadheads my iPod autocorrected that :) I'm realizing now that it will be more of a challenge getting a job. Everyones telling me to cut my hair but ive put to much time and effort to just give up now. So what would be a good high schooler minimum wage job?

Don't you mean "dreadheads"? ;)

We all know that dreads don't make a person unqualified for a position, but unfortunately not all employers see it that way. I don't see how you could get turned down to be an automotive tech... unless you have no experience?

As far as college goes... with this economy it may be in your best interest to go for a degree. You can at least start taking some basic courses to get yourself started. I just recently graduated with a Bachelors in Communications. I work in an office setting, host events, interact with people all day long... my hair has never been a problem. But you have to have an impressive resume, and present yourself confidently. The honest truth is you may have to fight just a little bit harder because of your hair.

General Questions

Hey I just recently turned 18 and I've been out applying at jobs but it seems like no one takes me serious because of my dreads. What's a job you deadheads have? Also what is a college profession that would be good for deadheads. I wanted to be a automotive technician but lately I've been discouraged by my hair and don't know what job will accept me in the future.

How do you remove mold completely?


General Questions

Ok I got tea tree oil instead beacuse I couldent find lavender oil locally. Can I substitute with tea tree oil? Also do I soak my hair in it or let my hair be damp with the mixture for a while?

soaringeagle said:

several options

3/4 cup white vinager 1/4 water 30-60 drops lavgender oil pour on leave on soaking a daty or 3 (the smell goes way fast)

sun dry sun dry sun dry as much as u can sun dry

other options take a good handful of thyme toss in boiling water lower heat to simmer simmer for 20 min till good and strong strain and cool

spray on and leacve on

bleach or chlorine probly will do it too

but sun drying is the best thing u can do

never wrap in a towel when wet never tie up wet never out on a hat when wet

let alotta airflow get all arund em till dry

(not recomending chlorine or bleach exvcept as a last resort)

Hey ive had dreads now for a year no wax nada. Just backcombed to start them. I used to be worried about my hair being loose but now there locked up mostly but now I have a problem with mold. I rinsed my hair with just water at first so I think that's why there moldy. Now I use apple cider vinegar baking soda sea salt and hot water. But it still don't remove the mold in my hair. It's not visable but still is nasty. What's the best thing to use?
