yes i checked the f.a.q.'s lol


Introduce Yourself

lol:) a tam is a loose fitting knit hat like this.... http://www.etsy.com/search/handmade?q=tam

i do sea salt sprays in my hair whenever i feel i need it. just wash your hair every couple of days or so and on the in between days just put your hair up when you shower. some people use a shower cap. don't go to bed with your hair wet because you'll regret it in the morning. lots of separating will be needed. just basically forget you have hair. don't try to over think it and you'll be fine.

so i basiclly started over question


Dread Maintenance

i think palm rolling was invented by wax sellers. they would tell you to palm roll to compress the wax into the hair. doesn't do much if you don't have a bunch of gunk in your hair.

Ok so I guess just let it be and it will start to do its own thing. Now when its starts to finally dread should I do alittle bit of palm rolling to get that nice rounded look?

DRYING!


Dread Maintenance

a tam is loose so your hair will move within it when you move around on the pillow which encourages knotting. its a good alternative for those of us who can't do a wool sweater on the pillow because of skin irritation. stay away from tight beanies though because those are too restrictive and you'll get one big mondo dread.

i thought wearing a tam and stuff to bed was bad a screws up the knotting process?

dreads in hats and other things


Dread Accessories

for me a hat doesn't seem to do anything but that could just be my hair type. i still wear it off and on though. glad it's working for you.

Is there a such thing as the "wrong" Dr. Bronners soap??


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

one of the girls on the board adds a little dr. bronners to her baking soda mix. you might try that. i can't use bronners either because of hard water. leaves my hair feeling like slime. yuck.

So I've Been Thinking


Dread Maintenance

i've heard using distilled water would work but i'm too cheap to buy a bunch of bottle water just so i can use dr. bronners. i like the organic shampoo i'm using and it rinses just fine with our hard water.

Loose hair!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

unfortunately it sounds pretty normal to me. use beads to hold sections together with the loose hair. they'll tighten back up as they mature.

Help!


Dreading Methods

you could always sew the loose hairs into the dread using a large tapestry needle.

I agree, ^. Mine haven't yet gotten to the 'come undone' stage.

But I will confess, I guiltily crocheted a few loose hairs in, but only because I did them myself and missed a bunch of long hairs :P
Other than that, no maintenance here.
