new soap recommendation


Dread Maintenance

i do sea salt sprays once in a while and i've also done a sea salt soak after washing. acv makes my hair silky soft which is what i'm trying to stay far away from right now. i really hate our water:(

Out of Baking Soda!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

you can basically use any shampoo that isn't conditioning. i've heard that liquid dish soap is also an option.

Losing it!!!


Help! Save My Dreads

i'm in the same position, too. i'm almost 5 months natural. lots of lumps and bumps and crazy zig zags but also a ton of hair that hasn't started to do anything. don't worry. there's a ton of us on here in the same boat and i guess we're all in the crazy rebellious stage. don't comb out. you got through 3 months already and i'm sure it will get even better in the next 3. i'm thinking you had the vision of perfect ropes of hair like you saw on the DHHQ website. that's just not going to happen unless you crochet a ton or use yucky wax. embrace the craziness now. it's bound to get better. {{{H*U*G*S}}}

they'll lay down after the first or second wash.

Dread Maintenance

these sound yummy! unfortunately, our water is so hard that any natural soaps i've tried in my hair just doesn't rinse out. i might order a bar for my body though. thanks for the suggestion:)

DAY 262!!!


Dreading Methods

i think they look amazing! i like the longer front but it's your hair. do what you want. i'm actually knotting in the front faster than the back. i'm going to be rocking a mullet soon:)

EEG concerns


General Questions

been there done that. yuck. no, you shouldn't have to remove your dreads. the electrodes are glued in place or stuck on using sticky pads but your hair shouldn't make a difference. i just went through all this last summer. the glue washes out or you can remove it easier with alcohol wipes.

good luck. hope everything turns out okay:)

new member n dreads :)


Introduce Yourself

i'm with SE on this one. some of those are huge! you don't look like you have very thick hair so i would just comb it out and get that yucky wax out of there. then do smaller sections and backcomb or t&r to your hearts content.

almost brushed it all out :(


Dread Maintenance

i know, right? loving all the dreading energy. it gives me hope that it will all work out in its own way in the months ahead. not saying that there won't be anymore break downs but i'll have this thread to come back to for a little boost in spirit which will help me get through the rough patches.

thanks, gabe! i just did a sea salt spray today. unfortunately my favorite wool hat got thrown in the dryer my mistake yesterday and can now fit a 4 yr old. lol. oh, well. i guess i'll be making a new one soon.

Wow I think they're looking great! by the description you gave I figured you had made much less progress. You might wanna try washing a little less frequently and the wool hat and a sea salt spray.
