best way to join two skinny sections?


Dread Maintenance

my whole head has pretty much separated into small sections but i have one in particular thats super small and i'm trying to join it to the lock next to it. i've had them held together with a bead for a couple of months now but if i remove the bead they are still two separate locks. is there anything else that i could do that would encourage them to join?

Dreads length, how long do your dreads take to grow?

i personally don't like cooked veggies. i even eat corn on the cob raw. i think its a hereditary thing for me. my mom has long hair to her butt but it took her 10 years to get it that long.

i eat a good healthy vegetarian diet and unfortunately as i'm getting older my hair is slowing in growth. it has always been strong, shiny, and healthy though.

se is incredibly lucky. average hair growth is 1/2" a month or 6 inches a year.

Baking Soda makes my hair dirty :(


Dread Maintenance

i agree with ron. its probably your water. try adding a little shampoo to your bs mix. it will help remove the residue but you'll still get the benefit of deep cleansing from the bs.

Painful scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

yours sound exactly like what mine are doing. they're rotating 360 degrees as they knot closer to my scalp and one side is always tighter which causes a lot of pulling and pain. i'm hoping they'll work themselves out soon.

I have had that same issue on the top of my head. on one of my dreads the root knotted up weird for a little while. It tightened up on one side before the other. Which caused the weight of the dread to pull on the knotted part and not be distributed equally. It became pretty sore. I kept my hair pulled up for a few days to keep any weight off of it. I slept with it flipped over on the other side. It quickly fixed itself.

I have a couple of dreads on top that twist around 360 degrees as the roots lock up. I do not twist them, they do it on their own. I had tried keeping them untwisted when this happened. So now i just let them twist all they want. It has never happened since.

It could also be a little pimple on your scalp. Those can be painful. If this is the case, put a little tea tree on the sore part.
