Conditioner


General Questions

even at a year conditioner can loosen your knots some. If your hair isn't really dry and needing the conditioner don't use it. A lot of residue is left on hair which can attract yucky stuff. I put 2 or 3 drops of oil and a cap full of acv into a (clean) 2 gallon milk jug fill it up with water ....shake it up and then poor it over my hair...i let it set for a couple minutes...then rinse it out with clear water. The vinager smell does not stay ....but the smell of the essential oil does. I have people tell me all the time that my hair smells nice.

I am in the process of getting dreadlocks. Why do I feel like a fake?


General Talk

you are rediscovering you! That is a beautiful thing. The real you is not a fake. You were just a dready mama inside waiting for the moment to shine :) Embrace it and stop worrying about what others think. If you are happier in the new self/true self then i don't see an issue at all :)

mineral oil


General Questions

actually mineral oil is one of the worst things to put on your skin. It bonds with your natural oil and through out the day when it is rubbed off on clothes or chairs or washed off it takes all your natural oil with it. So it is really oily (yuck) but leaves your skin dryer than it was to begin with.. It tricks you into thinking it is moisturized. Which makes you wanna do it again....skin dries out. so you put more on ...vicious cycle.

lice in dreads, help!!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

all it takes to catch head lice is to hug someone that has head lice...or to put your coat on a hook with someone with head lice or to sit in a cloth chair that someone with head lice has sat in. Putting on a hat or sleeping on a pillow that someone with head lice worn or slept on. Children are the most likely to spread it. If you have lived in a house with other people and have head lice for at least a week....chances are everyone in the household has it. If you kill the lice on your head and the house is not treated and the household members are not treated you are just gonna get them back.

lice in dreads, help!!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

you can't just get rid of them that way......you have to check everyone in the household.....they could have lice too and give it right back.....furniture has to be treated....carpets vaccumed( bags thrown outside in the garbage after) sheets clothes blankets .....everything washed and dried in a hot dryer....anything cloth (like stuffed animals)that can't be washed needs to be put into plastic bags ...tightly sealed and put away for 30 days. if you don't you are just gonna catch them again.

Using honey as bad as wax?


Introduce Yourself

i have real straight fine hair....so my personal experience is gonna be different than yours. I highly suggest looking at Dreadlockedlady's pictures. She has beautiful dreads. and her texture is more like yours. It can give you a visual idea of what your dreads can look like over time. Don't put time limits on your dreads. Dreads kinda happen at their own pace.

Introduce Yourself

dreads form by hair rubbing around and knotting with other hair...honey would keep that from happening. honey would wash out but wax doesn't.but still sticky hair doesn't mean dreads. Dreads don't happen over night. There is no way you could have healthy mature dreads in a month and a half. If you mean by "nappy"... that you have african curly kinky hair ...then your hair is gonna dread way faster than straight fine hair!!!!! You said you recently cut it all off...is there enough hair left to dread?

I really have no idea what im doing!


Dreading Methods

backcombing does not require wax...that was started by companies trying to sell products. Wax actually keeps dreads from forming. it is nasty stuff...i am glad that you do not want to use it. look at the top of the page...directly under Dreadlocks forums.... read the dreading methods...that should give you all the information that you need to start your dreads.
