When/how to moisturize dreads?


Dread Maintenance

out of all the locticians in the world the loctologist is 1 with ethics worthy of respect

and you know i only say that bout like 1% or 0.1%

i usually use any of the following

pure aloe vera must have absolutely nothing but aloe.. from the plant or with 1 single ingredient

jojoba oil chemically nearly identicle to your natural skin oils

argon oil been using this cause i got it

ive used coconut more as a sprits  and watered it down

the grandmothers might be worth tryimg go light on it till you know  though

Cause of thinning dreadlocks?


Dread Maintenance

do not tie a knot to fix, if anything push the 2 dreaded areas up till they meet so the thinned areas just mashed up between them then wrap from at least an inch or 3 above and below for a month to 3 and they should heal..

like  putting on a cast and letting them mend

Just got my hair dreaded! OMFG!!!


Help! Save My Dreads

1 inch is the largest you want! no larger, if 12 1 inch dreads accidently congo that's a dread the size of your wrist,  3 your bicep  4 your shoulder

dreads start off thin and weak but thicken up as they mature, to the size of the sections. a 1 inch dread takes all day to dry, and maybe even slightly damp in its core the next day..or even 2  this is a mildew or mold risk.  every 1/4 inch thicker just increases the risk, people with dreads over 2 inches generally only wash very couple months and don't swim.

i would recommend keeping most at 1/2 inch or smaller and only have 1-3 that are 1 inch

thicker dreads are more likely to have issues if damp a lot and come in contact with the spores..that are airborn

be aware that some molds are toxic, some cause symptoms a lot like schitsophrania . hallucinations.. pink mold i don't know much about though i think its common and  safer then some (i think)

dreadlockshampoo.com makes rot knot that kills mold.

ofcourse its meant to be used on dreads, but it was tested on that hard to kill black mold that's common in most showers.

i would not leave any mold unchecked out of laziness because so many have health complications.

what to avoid

residues that build up and lead to mold

not drying properly, wearing the dreads up ied back, or under a hat while even slightly damp

avoid towel drying as that can wipe out progress

dirt you cant avoid so just wash as often as you need to to be clean

but lint..you can't avoid it completely but might want to  decrease the exposure to causes of lint

microfiber pillowcases  and sheets are 1 example

don't play with your hair too much

and avoid caring aabout what other people think or say

is the rest of the dread somewhat dreaded

you will likely alwayshave a mesh of sorts near the scalp

if its traveling up the dread daily that means its dreading very st and may need separating daily or 3-5 times a day even

beads however are awesome for keeping that under control more

dude do you know how many hard core hippie stoners never owned a tie die or  lavalamp and how many who never touched a thing own both and beeded doors  etc

besides it was just something to sit the soap on to photograph it shes not so great at those things  so her husband or daughter took them

theres nothing associated with drugs about the soaps or tie dies  and i think you worry too much about perceptions  to the point of avoiding products  not on other peoples perceptions (which you admitted to worry about) but your own

now it might surprise you that 1/2 the  painted up 'hippie' busses on the road belong to church groups or mobile food kitchens

someone wearing crystals or peace signs might be just kind people not  chronic potheads

id say at least 80% of music, art, creativity and culture has associations with "drugs'  you could miss out on the greatest things in the world just cause there maybe some perception of association with drugs.

maybe you had bad experiences with drugs i did too .. drugs in a general sense are bad news (herb in a medical sense is a life saver though andif taken full advantage of industrially medically, for food and fuel, would change the future) maybe it ..any association acts as a trigger for ya

maybe you were in too deep or  just got out

but sometimes innocent things rigger  bad memories but avoiding all those things only gives them power

if instead, se had a native American artifact like a medicine shield behind it would that give you the urge to  do a sundance and pierce your flesh with a boars rib?

if there was a car in the background ..a ford and your a chevy man, is that reason enough to avoid a product?

i'm sorry i understand if you had a bad history with drugs  but don't see why it should influence you on such a micro level when its just a corner of fabric behind i think only 1 maybe 2 products

they will be all shaps and sizes and until they are knotting up really  they maybe just redefining the sections by how they want to tangle

only worry about it if they are forming real big if they aren't really forming yet just  tangling already real thin sections
