Yeah I'm looking for Dr.Bonners, but I haven't found it anywhere :/

I gotta check target next.

But....I think the Baking Soda is giving me dandruff as well....sometimes I wash with other things and I don't get any for like a day or two. I rinse my hair well too.

this might sound gross, but not washing your hair for a bit is a great moisturizer. I'm not saying don't shower, just instead of washing ever other day wash once, rinse the next time, then wash the time after that. I sometimes blend some pure shea butter into a cup of water and put that on my scalp.

I also don't use baking soda/ACV because it gives me crazy dandruff. You might want to consider a natural oil based handmade shampoo.

How and Why? SHRINKING


General Talk

i think shrinkage depends on the hair type not the starter method.

is it normal for 1 month old backcombed dreads to not look like dreads?


Dread Maintenance

they don't look like dreads yet because they aren't. backcombing was just a jump start for your hair. it will take months for them to tighten and shrink and start to look like dreads.

I Caved.....


Dreading Methods

i think people with really curly or unruly hair that would normally knot on its own really fast choose a starter method to avoid the months of separating and looking like a mess. a starter method definitely makes it a bit easier to keep things in order from the start. either way after the starter method is put in we are all on the same journey to ultimately obtain nice beautiful dreadlocks in the end.

Where to get dread beads?


Dread Accessories

you can get packages of wood beads in a variety of sizes at craft stores like michaels or joanns. i think they're around $3 a bag.

Baking soda wash not working?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

unfortunately our water is the worst here in so cal. we have calcium build up, rust, and chlorine. i wouldn't doubt that all that crap can definitely build up in our hair. i also think that that is why the bs wash doesn't work. i'm looking into getting a water softener for my shower head. one thing you might try is a salt water rinse after you wash with bs. i figure you add salt to a whole house water softeners so maybe it would help with residue from the water left behind. for now i'm sticking to shampoo and washing less.
