almost ready to give up and shave my head. 2mos in and nothing...


Help! Save My Dreads

your hair sounds a lot like mine. it took forever to start seeing some kind of knotting happening because of my silky soft hair. i'm a couple of weeks away from 6 months and just in the last month or so my hair has started to section off and knot on the ends. i tried a few t&r in the beginning but they just unraveled within a matter of hours. i do have 7 backcombed sections that are going crazy. the rest is natural/neglect. i don't even separate very much because i was doing it a bunch in the beginning and basically undoing any progress. your only a couple months in and i think you have a few more to go before you start seeing things happen. one thing thats helping me is finding a washing routine that dries out my hair a bit so i don't lose what progress i'm making.

i do 1/3 cup of baking soda in a 64oz. empty juice bottle. i add really hot water, put the lid on and shake. then i add a squirt or two of whatever shampoo i'm using at the moment into the bottle and shake again. i add the shampoo because i have an oily scalp and the baking soda alone doesn't help any. i do like the baking soda though because it dries out my hair a bit which is really helping keeping the sections together. we have really hard water so i can't use acv, bronners, etc because they leave me greasy.

i think if your already 2 months in then why not give it another 2 months or more. start playing around with different washing techniques and find one that works for you and your hair. don't do any separating for a while. i really think that if my hair can knot than anybodies can. before dreadlocks i didn't even own a brush! lol:)

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i really like that one but i found that the more i used it the softer my hair became. i think it might have to do with the main ingredient being aloe. i'm going to hold off using it until i have a full head of mature dreads.

I believe that it is working for you. All shampoo strips hair of natural oils, which i think is great for straight/fine hair. Oils are one of the things that can prevent it from tangling/locking. I too use the Kissmyface and i think it is a good thing that it leaves the hair soft, but tightened (I wash three-four times a week)

i love that one too but its a bit too drying on my scalp. i'm going to save it for use in the summer.

I stumbled across her videos awhile ago. She's pretty but her hair is gross - I mean c'mon not washing your hair? ew :( -and in my short time on here I've already seen waaaaay prettier people (yourself included!) and prettier dreads! Everyone says it takes time so don't worry. Soon you'll be the girl posting videos that everyone talks about lol

i know but you can't deny that people are drawn to beautiful people regardless if they're men or women. who knows what type of person she is. i just have dread envy. she just makes it seem so effortless. plus what girl doesn't want to be beautiful and have a gorgeous head of hair to boot.

Maxe said:

I thought beauty was skin deep? ;) ..she's definitely attractive to the eye, but come on...in essence personality is more important and dreads seem to bring out personlaity in everyone =)

Anyway...if you add up the time maybe hers are several months behind in progress because of the rubberbands etc?..her first video is kiiinda old as far as I remember...at least from last summer...and she is now at the loopy stage?

Also she has a LOT of undreaded hair length..not sure if that is because of her method or from not wearing tams/wool pillow cases or hairtype or what...but I really don't like when the dreads don't start until like a foot down...totally looses the lions mane look I love.

yeah, i just watched that one. i would look like a complete idiot with my hair up like that. looking through her pictures on deviant art her hair hasn't done much shrinking. strange. it's like the dreadlocks have thickened but not shortened.

Charlotte said:

Haha! I know what you mean... Not feeling particularly attractive atm so it's especially demoralising.

Found a video of her tying her dreads up. I'm not being funny, but if I did it the way she does (once I have dreads ;) ) I would feel totally ridiculous but she just looked awesome.

I also love the beads she's put in and am really looking forward to being able to do it! I have another reason why I want dreads :)
