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


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

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.

Washing dread tams


Dread Products

assuming your hat is wool than just fill a sink with cold water and add a tiny bit of soap (laundry soap, baby shampoo or even dr. bronners). swish around and squeeze gently then rinse well with clean cold water. gently squeeze out excess water. lay the hat on a towel and roll it up and press down on it to help the towel absorb the water in the hat. remove it from the towel and lay the hat somewhere to dry. hth:)

sleeping in a tam / frizzies / big hair


Dread Accessories

poor girl with all that thick, beautiful hair:) i wish i had your problem. lol:) i wouldn't put your tam on wet hair but if you want to sea spray it, let it dry and then put the tam on you should be fine. i would hate to see mold growing in that beautiful hair:)

Dr Bronners.


General Questions

dr. bronners doesn't work for me because of our hard water but i know a lot of people like it. i know se says to dilute it because it says something like that on the bottle but i've heard quite a few people say that it works better undiluted and its easier to rinse out. maybe try it both ways. even still if you want to dilute it in the 2oz bottle i would just add about a tsp and the rest water. find the way that works for you and go for it:)
