Drying your Dreads...


Dread Maintenance

loli got a box of shamwow last year for christmas. I sewed a few together to make it big enough to fit around my hair. When i wash my hair i squeeze out some excess water and then wrap it up in my shamwow for about 10 minutes. I know alot of people who occationally dry their dreads with a blow dryer and it doesn't seem to hurt. I just don't use one because i don't own one lol

Begining in a few days. Have some questions.


Introduce Yourself

Dreads will look amazing on you!! Choose the method that is right for you. The neglect method is obviously the healthiest. but not everyone has that much patience. I personally have a hodge podge of different methods on my head. Read about them here on this site and choose which method is best for you. It takes a long time for dreads to form no matter what method you choose. Also look at the pictures and get an idea of how thick you would like yours to be. Some people like thick other people like thin.Dreads don't have to be washed as often as loose hair but the knotting happens better on clean hair. oil hinders the knot. The BS works really well for me...but it doesn't work for everyone. If you decide to use shampoo make sure it is residue free...and that it washes out completely. And has no conditioners. Conditioner is not a baby dreads friend. Also make sure your hair is dry after wash it before you pull it up or cover it with a scarf or hat. Putting damp dreads up encourages mildew. Mildew and mold is more of a concern in mature dreads but it is good to start out using good habits.I am glad you decided to start them !!! You will love them.

Roots?


Dread Maintenance

anything manually that tightens locks at the scalp also pulls out some hair and breaks some too leaving even more loose hair to grow in. Sleeping on your dreads and letting them move around is all you need to do to dread those roots.

Sleep time dread wrapping


Dread Maintenance

I do not have the glorious 20 yr old dreads that Soaring Eagle has. I just know from my own personal experiences that dreading happens without nite caps. I can't sleep with clothes on....there is no way I'm gonna sleep with something on my head. Why do you feel the need to have something on your head? Is it very cold where you live ?

last year i hung out in Pitsburgh for a while. I met this wonderful woman named Sam. She looked at my head and said omg i wanna play with your hair. It was wonderful....hanging out with some of my really beautiful friends and sitting in the floor having my head played with...can't ask for more than that.People who don't know better are afraid to touch a dreadies head. I had no idea what root flipping was...but she did that to my whole head...and it was painful in some spots...but i really didn't think that much about it...just loved having someone mess with my hair. Now a year later...i can show you every place she flipped . There is an indention on every dread. Now i worry that one day it will become a weak spot and break off at that point.
