Can you pass the salt?


General Questions

i do 4 1/2 tbs. of sea salt to a 64oz. container of water which is roughly the salinity of the ocean. i pour it over dry hair. don't rinse. sometimes i'll sit in the sun to dry. seems to help add a bit of rough texture to my soft hair. i do this about once a week usually a day before i wash my hair. i've never had any problems with scalp irritation as some people have but that could be because of my mixture. i used to spray it on but the over spray would get my walls and everything else wet and salty. now i just hang my head over the bath tub and pour it on.

i don't bother adding sea salt to my wash because i've never had it do me any good but that could be because of our hard water.

here's something that might work for you. http://dreadsock.com/ it looks like they show the bandanna one on a guy playing football.

you might want to wear a dread sleeve over your locks before putting on the helmet. it will help protect your "babies".

Partings


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

i had a pretty defined off center part when i started my journey. nothing i could really do about it because of a cowlick. nine months later its still there but definitely not as perfect. some of the hair on one side of the part decided it wanted to be on the other side. i'm sure that once your locks are developed then you'll be able to flip them to whichever side you want them to lay.

natural/neglect progress


Dreading Methods

that was me! i LOVE that shampoo. it has done wonders for my hair. i recommend it to everyone.

Austin Sobotka said:

yeah i really dont touch it much other than getting it out of my eyes if i dont have it back. i have very fine straight hair. but i just started using a new shampoo and my hair is already knotting up way more than before, i went ahead and ordered a tam so hopefully that'll help speed it up aswell. and to anybody having problems with hard water try desert essence lemon tea tree oil shampoo, the difference of cleanliness was INSANE compared to bs/acv. i think it was heather that suggested it somewhere else on here actually

Preventing residue, still using regular shampoo


Dread Products

neutrogena would be fine. i personally don't like the smell of it but others on the forum have had great results in knotting. why would you condition?

Dread Maintenance

yeah, that and they kind of suck the lumps that were pushed out back in and they get more compact. at least thats what a couple of mine have done so far.

look for an open weave crocheted one. cotton would be good. or you could just crochet one yourself. there are a lot of tutorials on youtube. tams are good even in hot weather because it gets your hair out of your face and off your neck which keeps you cooler.

Hi Erinleigh,

I love your locks! They are beautiful! I hope when mine grow up they will look that good. I have been looking for some tams but haven't really found anything I like yet and it is hard for me to fathom wearing one in this heat! I'm still looking though.

Erinleigh said:

Welcome Butterfly! :-)

You should check out some tams to wear. i like to browse on etsy.com, you can find all kinds of great bargains on there. if you get a nice crochet tam, it'll give your head some ventilation in the hot florida temps.

Wish you well on your dread journey, and hope to see some updates!
