Mature dread length


General Questions

I was worried about shrinkage in the first few months. I had cut it to my shoulders, because I couldn't keep up with the tangles in my waist length hair. I didn't know that it would just dread if I quit. I think it was only a few weeks after that that I learned how hair dreads. I miss the length, and going even shorter was scary at the time. It's been about 9 months now, and it's mostly the same length as I started at. A couple of them have shrunk up to just 2 inches long. At some point I started welcoming shrinkage because I know that it is progress and someday it will grow long again. My hair is just past my shoulders, so similar to yours, but of course your shrinkage may vary. ;-)

Seriously thinking of shaving my hair off.


Dreading Methods

Awww! *hugs* I'm so sorry that you are unhappy with your dreads! Please don't shave your head! You will be so sad. If you do anything, carefully comb them out and do what you want with them. Even though it's been a year, they look like they have a long way to go still. I can't tell you what they would look like if you let them be. Again, please don't shave your head.Much love,Jeanna

Shampoo help!


Dread Products

Oh I went ahead and looked up infaderm baby shampoo and read the ingredients.Definitelydon't use it on your dreads. I also wouldn't let it touch my baby. The third ingredient is not only bad for your dreads, but its alsopoisonhttp://www.natural-health-information-centre.com/sodium-laureth-sulfate.html. I didn't see anything in there that is health or good for you. Hope that helps.

Shampoo help!


Dread Products

Like SE said, use baking soda! It works great and is super cheap! I buy a great big bag at costco for just a few dollars. Lasts six months or more, and I use it for cooking and household cleaning as well! Better for you too. Dr bronners is also great and inexpensive. When I use it I just use 4 or 5 drops (it is very concentrated)leaves my hair squeaky clean. I don't know if you have costco or dr bronners in the UK, but I am sure you have baking soda. Just add a little tea tree oil and some lavender and you will love a good baking soda wash. :-)

Just dreaded my hair


Introduce Yourself

I don't think that walmart would have any good residue free shampoo, but you can just use baking soda and apple cider vinegar to rinse. Super cheap and works really well. The acv will most likely help get some of the soap scum from the dove out too. There are instructions on the soda / acv wash around here somewhere...

JASON :Natural Products?


General Questions

I wouldn't use Jason. The products don't work well, and even though they are labelled natural or organic they have been independently tested and contain 1,4-dioxane which causes nasal, liver and gall bladder cancers in lab animals. I would stick with Dr. Bronner's, or baking soda.Here's an article in the LA times about it.http://articles.latimes.com/2008/mar/14/business/fi-natural14

Best alternative to wool is..?


Dread Maintenance

I met a couple girls that spinGORGEOUSyarn, and only use wool from well treated animals. I chatted with them personally and got to touch the yarn, which is amazing. If you can knit or crochet I would highly recommend it.

"Dunnose Head Farm operates without the use of herbicides, pesticides, dips, footbaths or regular injections. Their sheep produce a fine, soft wool that is so white it doesnt need any bleaches during processing, and the electricity for the farm itself is wind-generated."

Here is there FAQ page where they talk about how they source the wool.
