lopsided knotting


Dread Maintenance

so my hair is starting to knot (finally) and i've got a bunch of beads holding sections together to encourage knotting. the problem i'm having is that the right side of my head is knotting faster than my left or back. i sleep on my right side so i'm assuming that why but how will it even out or am i in for a weird look for quite a while? sleeping on my left side is not possible do to a health problem so thats out of the question. any suggestions would be great:)

Bangs with dreadlocks...what to do


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

i was thinking about cutting bangs because i hate my forehead and i look better in bangs. i just don't want all the extra work that i would have to do to make them look nice everyday. i'm sure after time your hair will stop eating them though. good luck:)

new soap like dr. bronners?


Dread Maintenance

bummer. oh well. i think i'm going to try the whenever shampoo by them. thundersquall has had good results and i've read good reviews online, too. thanks!

I would think so too. I LOVE Kiss My Face and have a bathroom full of their products...they're only medium natural but the scents are so nice. But I can't use Dr. Bronners here, our well water in incredibly hard and Bronners leaves a nasty film on everything, including my skin and hair. Any castille soap would do the same thing because there isn't much variation in the ingredients.

I've been thinking about adding essential oils to the unscented residue free shampoo I do use...create my own!

okay, then i'm definitely going to give it a try. unfortunately they don't have it at my target or walmart. i've heard that vitamin shoppe carries it so i'm going to try there next before i order it online. thanks!

I found mine at my local walmart heather. I hear they also sell it at target. If you are considering ordering it like i said i reccomend it; as an experiment i washed 5 days a week with the lime shampoo for two weeks and at the end i actually had three-four new baby congos forming. Plus i had no dandruff and hair felt just "right", instead of that dry, straw feeling when you overwash with a bad shampoo. No issues with hard water or anything either it lathers up sweet just be sure n rinse well.

Tips For Optimum Dreading?


Dread Maintenance

the knots that i have get tighter and loopier with every wash so i would say definitely washing more often would help a lot.

Questions


Introduce Yourself

well since i'm still in the beginning of my journey right now it doesn't even look like i have dreads. it looks more like a big mess. so far no one but my immediate family knows of my journey. i usually have them covered up with a hat or scarf. i can't wait until i can where them as is. i'm a little too self conscious right now.

funny because i actually went in there to find that shampoo. they didn't have it. nobody does in my area. i think i'm going to have to order it online. it sounds like it would be worth it though.

I havent tried that soap, but never thought to i guess since they have the shampoo line that is a tad cheaper. Their whenver green tea and lime shampoo though is excellent i reccomend it.
