white dots on dreads


Dread Maintenance

if you backcombed and its on the ends then it most likely split ends. just leave them. i would think it would be too time consuming to cut them and they'll probably get sucked into the dread over time so it won't benoticeable.

Kirt's Castile... hmm, sounds interesting! I've use Dr. B's and while I like the soap, I still get the feeling that it's leaving something behind. Where can you buy Kirt's?

When I do use a bar soap I use Kirt's Castile. It seems to rinse clean and doesn't leave my hair like Dr. Bronners does... I can feel a difference, maybe it's just me. SE, you're right about being cutesy! lol! I love that word!

sticky/ mushy dread roots please help!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

tea tree tingle is a great shampoo but its essential oils base might be causing a build up with the minerals in your water. you might want to try something a bit more clarifying like desert essence tea tree lemon shampoo for oily hair or neutrogena anti residue shampoo. they both work pretty well with the water here in orange county. the one i'm using at the moment is rainforest balance shampoo from the body shop.

Fuzzy looks so unprofessional! How do I fix this?

that aloe has a lot of other ingredients in it. i would use it on my skin but not my hair. you want to get pure aloe. the kind that needs to berefrigerated. you can get it in gel or liquid form at most health food or vitamin stores. i think the brand name is lily of the desert.

Mary said:

This is probably going to sound like a bad idea but have you considered headbands? Aloe gel would be of a great assistance, you can buy some at vitaminshoppe or a health store. Or Walmart if there is one in your area:

3.97 Aloe Gel 100%

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i haven't tried their shampoos but i've read reviews on them and most people say it makes their hair soft. probably not a good one for dreadlocks.

Mao said:

hey.. does anyone tried Avalon Organics? Does it make your hair soft or conditioned? Though I'm using bs/acv since day 1, I just wanted to try diff. stuff. but I don't want to ruin my babies eh.TIA.

will a bead round out a dread?


Dread Maintenance

Beksta said:
The question has already been answered, but I wanted to share a funny story on the topic of "flat, paddle-like" dreading...I had one of them on one of my back locks for a while and I had someone comment that it looked like a 'dag' (one of those flat mats that sheep get on their butts), only she added, that at least mine didn't have poop in it like sheep have...I replied, with a straight face, 'well actually, it does, poop really makes great dreads, and it's all-natural. I believe in natural locks.' The look of horror on her face was priceless and so worth making myself sound like a filthy poop-headed pig hahahah
