Is using rubberbands in the early stage of dreadlocks really that harmfull?


General Talk

i've actually used embroidery thread on a few of mine before and it helped keep them together. i would just knot a small piece about an inch away from the root. it slid up and down with ease like a bead but didn't get stuck there like a bead would. when i wanted to remove it i just cut it. super simple.

my 17 month dreads and I really enjoy having them


General Talk

wow! they look so beautiful! i've been known to ask someone with locks if i could touch them. it's a rarity around here to see someone with them. i was vending in an art show and the woman was asking me about my work and she was really nice. i asked her about her locks and then got up the nerve to ask her if i could touch them. i had never felt dreadlocks before and i was really curious of what the texture of mature locks would feel like. they had the feel of felted wool. i loved them. this was about 6 years ago. i don't know why i waited so long to start my own. i guess i just needed to be more secure with myself first:)

Patience gone...


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

you don't HAVE to wait. it's your hair. lots of people on this board started with backcombing or t&r and have a ton of loops and kinks. i would skip the wax though.

weleda rosemary shampoo, hindering process?


Dread Maintenance

the ingredients don't look too bad but what might be causing your problems is the fact thatDisodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate is a very mild cleansing agent. it probably isn't helping get all theessentialoils in the shampoo out so thats why your hair has more slip to it. you might want to try something else.

Dreading my ladies hair


Dreading Methods

i love aubreys skin care products but their shampoos always left me with an oily residue. i would try desert essence lemon tea tree or trader joes tea tree tingle. both work wonderfully in all types of water and get your hair really clean.

Mother Earth Herbal Soap, Safe to Use?

the organic part is most likely the essential oils. the palm oils, salt and td arenecessaryto create the bar of soap.

Mother Earth Herbal Soap, Safe to Use?


Dread Maintenance

well, the first two ingredients are palm oils. sodium chloride is regular table salt. glycerin is a humectant but can also be a bit drying. the next two ingredients areessentialoils and the titanium dioxide is a sunscreen but is often used in bars of soap for stability.

i would say if you have hard water then i wouldn't even bother trying it. glycerin and palm oil are a pain to rinse out completely when you have excess minerals and such in your water. an acv rinse after washing might help though. but if you have soft water then go for it:)

I'm becoming discouraged ):


General Questions

make sure you aren't separating too much. i did that in the beginning and was basically undoing progress. your not going to get a congo over night. get some beads and add them to the sections that fell apart or ones that your worried about and then just leave them be. go about your life and forget that you have hair. {{hugs to you}}
