suppper itchhy head


Dread Maintenance

Hi! yes having dreads may cause your scalp some extra itchies. Read around the site a bit and you will find many wonderful and different remedies for this. I would recommend using a residue free shampoo with tea tree oil in it or even better just washing with a couple spoonfuls of baking soda mixed into a cup of water and a few drops of tea tree oil. Pour it over your head and let it sit for 15-20 mins. But read around different remedies work best for different people you won't know until you try! Good Luck!

just how little does johnny clean of dreadheadhq know about dreads?


Dread Maintenance

I felt EXACTLY the same was SE!! And that "Truth" video I believe was made by someone on K Locks and is a very well done informative vid. So of course JC HAD to demean it somehow and make it a joke so he wouldn't have to answer the real questions/TRUTH it brought up.soaringeagle said:
it boggles my mind how many people sdee those vids and get all excited and comment like finaly i can fix these nasty lumps i cant wait to buy more tools etc
i literaly watched through my fingers cringing like it was a slasher flick
at least in a movie when u see a axe murderer chopping off heads u know its faked but i think he mat actualy have done those tortures to his own dreads

who thinks hes just an emo who faints at the sight of blood so tortures his dreads instead

ok i just watched the johnny vid and I'm a bit traumatized! He is Mangling his shit! For what?? Loops and bumps are beautifully unique! They will mostly smooth over time anyway. I don't understand how anyone could watch that and think it was a good idea??It looks so violent! If dreads were that complicated, I wouldn't have them!!

I've a MAJOR dilemma resolved!!


General Talk

WOAH 6-700$ for DREADS!? that's insane! IMO i would try and use your position to teach people about healthy dreading methods and not wax/crochet or otherwise. there are plenty of professional hairstylists that refuse to use certain methods on hair because it's too damaging etc... If you use a method you KNOW to be bad then no matter what you say to the customer they WILL blame you when it goes wrong. Plus you probably don't want to be part of the problem, so be part of the solution!! Many Blessings (((oops just realized i replied kinda late to this so how'd it go??)))Alden said:
So, I just spoke with the owner of the salon and found out exactly what they're looking for.
They need someone to come in once a week to teach the stylists how to dread hair properly, and they need someone daily to dread customers as well.The owner told me that the last girl was charging $100 an hour, flat. Sometimes more, depending on hair length and thickness. And of course it can take in excess of 6 or 7 hours for one head. I thinks that's absolutely ridiculous. Scamming people out of $600-$700 on average for something they could do at home.I can't even entertain the idea of charging that amount of money for the work involved.So I'm going to the salon tomorrow to really talk shop with the owner and get this ball rolling.

Ah! crazy unraveled root. please tell me what you think


General Questions

actually in a way i think u should be glad! That just means u didn't T&R it too tight. If it's done too tightly it seems to end up looking braid like and i can't imagine it's too good for the hairs? (no offense to anyone, i know cavewoman likes the natural look) So they will unravel a bit and lock up in just the way they are meant to!!

General Questions

yea i hear ya it's good to try different things to figure out what works best for ya, nothin wrong with that! I'm just not that motivated!HA! So i'm thinkin the one you're pointing to is like that because of the ponytail?? My last set i had for a couple years and i wore it in a high ponytail all the time and they kinda formed weird. Maybe it was a freak thing but i couldn't wear them down comfortably. But a lot of people have to wear em up for work so just make sure u wear em down or in a tam when you're home. Also did u T&R? that could be it too. Maybe the roots unraveled a lil?? Either way don't worry they look great on ya! They are going to turn out beautiful!! Much Love
