What do you do if hair dreads too fast?


Dread Maintenance

I started out completely natural and had problems keeping my dreaded hair from gobbling up my loose hair. I had to separate 2 -3 times a day. It was a pain in the ass! So I tnr'd the loose hair, which helped immensely in the battle against the unidread. Maybe you could tnr her hair just near the roots if you didn't want to tnr completely?

Dr Bronners leaving residue, maybe?


Dread Products

I actually had a similar problem and asked the same question! My hair was sticky when wet, and looked kind of greasy when it was dry, even though it didn't feel greasy. My hair was soooo sticky when it was wet, it would stick to my skin. It was almost as though it had an adhesive on it. At the time, I was using baking soda and white distilled vinegar. I stopped using the vinegar, and my hair gradually lost the stickiness. I occasionally still use the vinegar, and after I rinse, my hair will feel slightly tacky. So at the moment, I'm attributing ithe stickiness to the white vinegar. I'm now using Dr. Bronner's and have no stickiness.

Sticky Hair! Help!

Sorry for the multiple replies. My messages all appeared to freeze in the send phase, so I re-sent them, and ended up with multiples. Argh!

I occasionally throw a couple drops of tea tree oil in the baking soda wash. My scalp is healthy - no sores. I never used wax. Ugh. I can only imagine how much worse that would be. I have no idea how people can stand wax!

Sticky Hair! Help!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I've been washing my hair with baking soda and white distilled vinegar. This usually leaves my hair soft and squeaky clean. About 3 weeks ago my hair felt sticky after washing. Since that time I have tried washing with diluted Bronner's, Pears, and even dish detergent, all to no avail. I dye my roots black about every 2 to 2 1/2 months, and briefly entertained the possibility that my hair is damaged from that. However, I feel that that is unlikely to be the cause for a two reasons: I did not dye my hair just before the issue started and the roots, which have not been dyed at all are also sticky. My fingers actually come away sticky. My undreaded bangs are sticky as well. It's driving me insane, and I don't have any idea how to resolve it. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm at my wit's end.

Dreading fine hair


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

What about dread falls? They're not quite as versatile as braided-in dread extensions, but you can make and install them yourself.

RazorCandi said:

yay, definitely nice to not feel like an outsider here, I have to deal with enough of that in real life ;)

Yeah, I am still debating over it, I wrote to a girl about getting a quote on 35 dreads at 10"-14" to just braid in since I am still nervous about taking the step but she asked for $120!!! ouch!

Dreading fine hair


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I love love love love your style! So glad to have a fellow "darkling" on the site. :)Like you, I like to change my hair all the time, and I've been thinking of ways I can adapt my goth and gothabilly/rockabilly hairstyles to dreaded hair. I think I can make 'em work. Guess I'll find out!

RazorCandi said:

hehe I plan to try and turn my husband into my personal hair dresser, hopefully he will get the hang of it ;)

Yeah I had a deathhawk for years, loved it but I want to do more of aChelseyhawk type thing but dreaded, I know about how the dreads want to eat all the loose hairs, I used to glue in tracks that I dreaded at the back and I'd have toliterallyrip them out because the lose hairs in the back would tangle after just a couple days :-S If it gets to be too big of a pain I will probably just shave the lose sides into little side burns and let the bangs dread too ;)

Baldness in time?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Aw. I like the make-up in synth dread pics. I like synth dreads for that matter. All part of the goth scene I so love.

dreaded delusion said:
Haha. How ironic it is that it always goes down that way ya know? It'd be like salt lady walkin around trying to make everyone scalpy. The makeup like drew carry lady made me giggle. Esp cos I always see make-up like that on synth dread advertisments. haha. It doesn't surprise me that the only people that got em was a young lady. That's just like when my fiance and I were in Jamica and saw little kids' parents spend all kinds of money to get their hair braided. :) Silly tourists. :)

soaringeagle said:

i was at the odunde fest 1 year and its like wall to wall dreads like 5 whole blocks standing room only all dreads (mostly jamaican rastas and africans ) but this 1 year this locticians there handing out flyers with all multicolored odviosly synthetic dreads offering to "fix" all these amazing dreads

it was just comical

especialy since like shes covered in glitter with fake eyelshes that were like nearly 2 inches long

and she was the only 1 in the crowd needing fixing (well no not true..there was this strange chick with clownloike makeup just like that chick from the drew cary show or that other brittich chick (or was that a tranny?)

but anyway she kept comming up to all these ppl with amazing locks and saying i can fix those for u and every 1 of em took a look at her laughed and said something like fix what they are just the way they should be.. ..the only ppl who i saw fall for it was ike a suburban conservative familt had theyre like 10 year old daughter get some synthetic dreads..

dreaded delusion said:

Thanks SE. That's what I figured. When I saw that thread it startled me but I don't do any of those things so I guess I'll be ok. :) I agree about the manicured look. That's why it always made me laugh when people who know nothing of locks (don't even have em) suggest I "fix them". I like my loose hairs. :)

twisting interlocking over maintaining

specificlky twistimg and interlockimg

i tel;l ppl that all the time it can cause permenant harm to the scalp

i know ppl with 40 year old dreads ..natural never had these problems

but salon dreads see it alot

hell my hair has never been thicker or fuller amd it gets yanked on alot its def not weight or pulling its the twisting and extreme tighteness to the scalp that causes it

the whole manicured look to me looks like theyre trying to look like theyre going bacld with aqll the exposed scalp

too tight braiding cayuses the same thin tho
