Dreads aren't natural


Dreads in the Family

lol! *blush* thanks guys:) my second child is graduating from high school next week so it definitely makes me feel old. my best anti aging advice for anyone is eat clean and COCONUT OIL! i swear by that stuff. slather it all over your body and add it to your food. the best stuff ever.

i wouldn't worry too much. with your hair texture and all the swimming you'll be doing your hair will probably dread right up. just leave it alone.

What do you wear...to bed? ;)~


Dread Maintenance

i wore my wool tam to bed for the first 5-6 months but now i don't put anything over them. it helped in the beginning but when i started locking up more i was getting weird bumps and twists in my hair from the tam rubbing in one place too much. you could do a wool sweater over your pillow too but i have sensitive skin and woke up to a rash on my face when i did it.

i use coconut oil on my face too! probably why the hair around my face isn't knotting. oh well.

Wild, yes! I love how everyone moves at their own pace, like the way everyone walks and dances and loves differently. Since those pics a couple days ago, I have two new dreads starting, so now 12 in all, and some cool changes going on. I wash my hair, hmm, 2-3 times a week. I'm a massage therapist, so I have to stay clean and presentable. Usually, my bangs get oily before the rest of my hair (bc I generally have oily skin and I also put coconut oil on my face before sleep) (and I'm leaving my bangs/top right of my head undreaded), I'll rub some cornstarch in to take that little oily-ness away. Some weeks, that third wash in the week may be just my bangs and I'll leave the dreading part alone. Some people don't wash as much, but it all depends on the preference. I mentioned earlier in the time line that last year I developed dandruff for the first time eeveerrr in my life from using baking soda and vinegar, which works really well for some, but not for me. So for me, I learned to know what is healthy for me and when I need to wash, and its 2-3 times a week. My hair also just KNOTS like CRAZY regardless, so...

Yeah it is really hard to find large hole beads when the locs get so thick. Some macrame beads work. I have some bone beads with larger holes, not as large as fingers though. pm me if you want some pics.

here's the shampoo...

it say "conditioning shampoo" so i would think it wouldn't be good when your just starting out. eyeheartchrist has had locks for almost 4 years so his hair wouldn't be as affected by the conditioning.

pasty feeling hair


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

ditto on the hard water. i had the same problem. try mixing a squirt of natural shampoo with your bs mix. i would cut down on the amount oils your using too.
