Residue in 1 3/4 month old dreads :(


Help! Save My Dreads

also, i think flaking on our scalps is going to happen no matter what because we aren't brushing our hair and lifting the dead skin from our scalps. so a little flaking shouldn't be a reason to give up just yet.

i find that with the water here in orange county you really need to use more bs for it to really work. get a container with a lid and add 1/3 cup bs to 32 - 64 oz. of hot water. put the lid on and shake until its dissolved. i usually add a squirt of shampoo to the mix too for a really good cleaning plus it helps with the bs residue. was the stuff in your dreads flaky like dandruff or powdery like bs? did you have a dandruff problem before dreading? if so than you might consider getting a dandruff shampoo. i've heard neutrogena t-sal is a good one.

Twist dreads in black hair


Dreading Methods

theres a white girl on youtube that started her locks just by twisting her sections. she has super curly, coarse hair. i think it looks pretty amazing and if i had hair like hers i would've done it that way, too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3HWEtXIZX0&feature=related

Thin tops, thick bottoms


Help! Save My Dreads

mine are kind of like that too but mine are more like big paddles on the ends and then more rope like farther up. i think you just need to wait it out. it will slowly knot and climb up the dread. the looping your seeing is good because that means its tightening. i wouldn't do too much palm rolling because it could contribute to thinning roots later.

i don't get it.....


Dreading Methods

yeah, in her latest video she said she doesn't wash it. i would think her scalp would be a bit grimy.

separating confusion


Dread Maintenance

well, i know that the webbing at the scalp should definitely be separated. you don't want to be able to move one dread and have all of them move along with it.

when i separate i go from root to tip and rip anything thats attaching to other dreads around it. i don't do it too often though because it tends to set my progress back but with your t&r dreadies i would do it after every wash just to keep everything in order while they mature.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i can't use it in my hair either. i use it as a body soap though and its wonderful. no noticeable residue on my skin. totally addicted to the nag champa scented one.

so i was so excited to get my dread soap, and it smells soooo good. unfortunately it left my skin and hair very greasy like lanolin and I had to scrub it out.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

well, it didn't go so well for me. i ended up with sticky, disgusting hair. i had to get back in the shower and wash my hair again. oh well, i guess i'll use it for something else.

I have tried the new Kiss My Face Peace soap and love it. it has similar ingredients to Dr. B's and lathers less than other shampoos, but smells good and cleans, doesn't leave a 'coating' on hair.
