you might try the balancing one they carry. i've heard people complain that it makes their hair extra tangled.

How many dreadies does everyone have?


General Questions

i think it really comes down to hair type (thick, thin, fine, course). one persons 20 dreadlocks can look totally fine but on someone with thicker hair they will look huge. just stick to the 1" average measurement like se said and im sure it'll be fine.

Introduce Yourself

i used to use that shampoo before dreading and it made my hair super soft so i would stay away from it. there's a post on what shampoos people have tried and it might help you find some you like. bs doesn't work for everyone especially if you have really hard water like i do.

Pass the Salt, Please


Dread Maintenance

good idea with the oil! i'll have to try adding some lavender or peppermint oil next time i spray.

Sarah Hagan-Stuff said:
i do the same. i was twice a week and use the spray at least 1-2 times between washes. i also leave my in and try to avoid my scalp. i find it makes my scalp dry if it gets on it. i also add a few drops of my oils to make it smell good too :o)

i spray a mild solution on my hair(avoiding my scalp)on the days in between washing. i leave it in my hair until the next washing. i haven't had any problems with excess drying or scalp irritation. its helping to roughen up my hair a bit so its more prone to knotting.

Dreads aren't natural


Dreads in the Family

i don't get parents that are so concerned with how their children look. maybe they feel that it's a reflection on their parenting or something? i have 3 kids and i support them 100% when they want to express themselves through their hair or piercing, etc. they're all old enough to make choices that aren't going to be harmful to themselves. i actually took my daughter when she was 15 to get her nosed pierced and then at 16 her septum pierced. she didn't do it on a whim. it was something she really thought about for months so i felt like she really knew it was something she wanted. she's 21 now and has since removed the nose ring and is now stretching her ears. i'm kind of jealous;)

just remember, your beautiful and even if your mother doesn't approve she still loves you with all her heart. i'm sure she'll see the beauty in your hair once they're fully developed and lovely:)
