Dread Products

why would you use a cleansing conditioner on hair that you want to knot?

kinda wool beenie


Dreading Methods

i wear both wool and acrylic hats and find they both do about the same when it comes to knotting. i did find that when i wear a more fitted hat that i get better results than a baggy tam. if you look at eyeheartchrist on youtube he wears beanies and has awesome dreads. i wouldn't wear them all the time but a few hours in a beanie would probably be good for locking. you just want to make sure you separate your locks after to avoid one mondo dread.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i just bought this yesterday in the pomegranate and acai scent. i can't use dr.bronners because it leaves a yucky greasy feel on my scalp and hair. if it worked for you and your hard water than i hope it works for me too:)

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.

Wool pillow case for my impatient head


Introduce Yourself

co-sleeping = happy baby! i so miss my kids being little. i loved watching them sleep. anyway, i would just use an old sweater and cut off the sleeves. i tried this but my skin is so sensitive that i woke up with a rash on my face. now i just wear a wool hat to bed whenever i feel i need it.

We need a "My hair won't naturally dread" support group!


Dreading Methods

i must be missing something here. i didn't see anyone on here telling her to give up including knottysleeves. i just saw people offering up their own experiences which sometimes helps people not feel alone in their hair troubles.

Concerning the use of rubberbands.


Dread Maintenance

wow! your hair is really pretty! looks like the rubber bands didn't do any harm to them.

Never attached pics before so sorry if it's huge! I'm a bit nervous about the bleach damaging them too but I make sure they're rinsed very thoroughly. On the downside it does make them quite dry for a week or so after, can you recommend anything to soften them up a bit? If you fancy lighter dreads you could try lemon juice? I know it works for "normal" hair so I don't see why it wouldn't for dreads!

when will this phase end?


Dread Maintenance

a pic would help but i think we have the same concerns. i'm not as far along as you in my journey (6mo.)but i have some sections that are zig zaging up from the bottom. looks like a big heavy mass hanging from the ends. i was hoping for wispy ends but i guess thats not going to happen now. maybe it has to do with hair texture? i have fine hair. i was actually considering combing them out the other day because i definitely don't like how its looking.

how much separating should you be doing in the beginning?


Dreading Methods

when i started with my natural journey i was separating almost daily because i was always worried about congos. fast forward six months and i've learned that i was basically undoing any progress i was having. i separate now about twice a month. with my soft, slow knotting hair at this point a congo would be a welcome site. i wouldn't worry too much. it takes a while to really get some knots so tight they're going to be almost impossible to separate. someone on the boards told me not to separate in a mirror because it causes you to over think it and do too much. now i just separate by feel while watching t.v. a whole lot easier and i don't have to look in the mirror at my dreaded mess:)
