Hair Hurts?


General Questions

did you both start them manually?

could be cause of the starting method they are pulling unevenly  that should sort itself out after a few to several months

for instance if you backcombed or tnr (i would guess more likely from backcomb)  and  as your pushing the knots towards the scalp a few hairs are being held from being pushed down so are holding a disproportionate amount of weight (like the circus people that hang from their hair need to be certain that every  hairs  taking the same amount of force the whole head then can support  the weight of 3 elephants  but if 1 sections slightly looser or tighter, disaster can strike and a chunk of scalp get ripped out)

as they grow and knot  they should even out as those weight bearing hairs will have other hairs knot around them till the pressure evens and they can start to knot around others

i can't see this being much of a long term issue  but likely will take months possibly till they have  grown a lil  after the roots dread and mature

Hair Hurts?


General Questions

i guess i move mine around a lot so never experienced that

that maybe all you need is just toss them to 1 side or the other awhile?

Question on Sea Salt?: Sprays vs Soaks


Dread Maintenance

how would i know that without knowing the volume of water to be used

you need 3.5% f the water volume, 3% is fine 4% probably won't even dissolve

3.5% is the salinity of the ocean

so take your water volume  figure out what 3.5% of that is  you might want to then google  how many tablespoons is x ounces or whatever

or whats the volume of salt per tablespoon

you will have to do a lil math to figure it out based on the volume of the bronners mixture

Question on Sea Salt?: Sprays vs Soaks


Dread Maintenance

well i know washing with it in the shampoo works amazing  i don't think i  did sprays often if anything i  mixed up a pitcher poured it on  but i really only left it on like 10 min

you could try both see which gives better results and report back

big (free) server upgrade coming soon


site updates and help requests

I know some f you just donated a few months ago to purchase a new server & I really appreciate it, however had to skimp on the cpu to cut costs and it is a it underpowered for our needs

last week someone offered the use of a server he just bought that is more then 3 times faster, and has nearly unlimited space for uploads

besides we have had issues lately with videos not converting when uploaded and other issues that will be fixed

now since a couple of you donated generously to the server we have nowI want to fill you in on the plan

we will keep it in reserve for a minumum of several months ..just in case

after several months if its no longer needed I would like your permission to sell or auction it and use the money to support www.freedomswings.org

note that I used the last of my inheritance (as little as it was) to pay for 1/2 the server, vicki from dreadlockshampoo lent me 1/2 and about 2 members maybe 3 donated the other 1/4

if you donated and would rather have that refunded I will understand and be happy to honor your request.

otherwise freedoms wings has some big goals this year and would love your support

Congoing two dreads


Dreading Methods

eh well the interlocked part will need extra care to undo

why would it matter if its 1 solid dread? when its longer it will be 1 solid dread except 2 short lil ends

to take them out  use loads o conditioner or olive oil andcarefully brush or comb from the tip up some find just picking at it with a pin or fork worksbest some just undo it with fingers..it takes time though
