Need help with 2 month old dreads please


Help! Save My Dreads

mix the baking soda in boiling water but you need to let it cool down before you use it. After it is dissolved you can even put it in the fridge to cool it down more.

For the first year or so I had the white scalp mud. It had nothing to do whatsoever with baking soda. It was a combination of dead skin cells and naturally occurring oil when water and soap mix with it. It turns into a creamy gross nasty gunk. My solution was to gently scratch my scalp with my nails before I washed. And again while washing and rinsing. Just enough to loosen the dead skin off of the scalp. After a long period of time your scalp will finally adjust to the fact that it is not being brushed or stimulated on a daily basis anymore. It took my scalp a couple of years.

keeping hair from dreading


Dreading Methods

A couple of my dreads started out as braids.....so you may want to comb them out once a week or so....at least. The bad thing about straight hair is that it WANTS to dread. Dreads do not need maintenance but straight air does. Just thought I would give you a heads up :)

Second thoughts


Introduce Yourself

My hair was to my lower back. It shrank for 2 years. It took 4 years to grow back to the original length. I have a lot of people that come up to me and ask about my hair. I tell every single one of them that the first year is hard. My hair looked awful. Scarves were my best friend. I just did not look at myself in the mirror.

The point is most people who start dreads don't make it past 6 months. They give up. They do not have a vision of what is to come. Their vanity keeps them from continuing the journey. That is why long dreads are not seen often but short dreads are everywhere. I see a lot more synthetic long dreads (extensions)than I do natural ones.

People are always going to stare. Dreads are different. Dreads are misunderstood. People look at me all the time. I could care less. Their opinions are not our business. Their opinion belongs to them and can not effect us unless we let it. You started your journey for your own reasons...not for them. You know the old saying....you can't please everyone...but you can please yourself :) This is what my hair looked like at around 6 months. It was a mess but I promise it gets better :)

How long is your hair? It could take longer than a year if it is short. Show her pictures from this site.

Headband Giveaway Feb 2014


Dread Craft Show and Trade

Over the years I have collected, been gifted and made many hair bands, scarves and head wraps. I have an overflowing drawer full. So I would rather someone without any or someone with only a few of them receive your beautiful band. There are so many people starting out that have nothing to pull their knots back with. I remember a time when I didn't.

It is lovely!! I would be proud to wear it. I think your give away is a GREAT idea!!
