super tight zig zags


Dread Maintenance

yeah, i tried that. it's too tight. they aren't budging. i just hope i don't end up with a bald spot down the road from the constant pulling.

so my hair seems to like to zig zag up from the bottom and make a huge hanging mass on the ends. i have one that's pretty big and it has some hairs that are pulling on my scalp. i tried to loosen it today using conditioner and olive oil but its not budging. does anyone else have weird dreadlocks like me? how do i go about relieving the tension on my scalp without cutting the dang thing off? it seems to get tighter everyday. oh and the section is kind of triangle shaped, could that be the reason?

i think they look great! it looks like you have fine hair so i bet they'll lock up fast. make sure you start a timeline so we can all see your progress:)

Dreads seem sticky after washing


Dread Maintenance

i got the stickiness too from dr. bronners. i stopped using it. i read online that most people that wash their hair with bs/acv or "no poo" usually pour the bs mixture on dry hair. the bs will bind to the oils on the hair and scalp. leave it on for about 5 minutes and then rinse. then do the acv rinse. i'm going to try this out myself sometime.

how bad will a beenie slowdown or hurt my natural dread process


Dread Maintenance

just be careful. there's a guy on youtube that wore a beanie all the time and it resulted in one massive beanie shaped dreadlocks. make sure you move your hair around in the hat and also take it off when you don't absolutely have to wear it.

2 months photo, neglect


Dread Maintenance

i personally hate how i look in hats and thats why i only wear them around the house and to bed. they sure do help with the knotting though. you could try the beanie too and see if that helps.

should i increase my washing?


Dread Maintenance

i've been wearing my wool tam to bed every night and it been helping with the knotting. i found two new knots this morning. also doing sea salt sprays on my hair on the days in between washings is helping roughen up my hair a bit so its more prone to knotting and not so soft.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap: Oily residue?


Dread Products

a lot of people just wet their hair then put about a dime size amount of bronners in your hands, rub your hands together to get a lather going and then scrub your scalp. rinse really good.
