Maturing Dreads?


Dread Maintenance

hmm i tried posting this twice ijn edge browser but didnt post so here goes again

your page says "natural shampoo"  what natural shampoo would that be?

if its not residue and conditioner free thats why they arent maturing, i recomend www.dreadlockshampoo.com liquid which has sea salt for faster dreading

and ofcourse wax prevents dreading so if any wax was used even once when starting, you need wax b gone to get it out

also what tribe we have a native american dreaders group but id love a na gallery maybe then organized into albums by tribe

all throughout history too i think its the muskogee that had such amazing dreads?

can't remember

Natural Soaps and Body Wash ??


General Talk

bronners is great, if diluted and you dont have hard water

www.buckscountrysoapfactory.com and www.dreadlockshampoo.com are amazing (and hand made)

the shampoos are made for hard water

many with salon dreads  yes they refrain from washing up to a year then wash every 2-3 months  and they still call natural dreads dirty and nasty even if they were just washed  that day

its weird how they get programmed to think that way

but hey we had 1 guy who hadnt washed his in 8 years, they were 1/4 the length of mine but more then twice the weight ..he was cutting them cause of the weight

we had another who hadnt washed in 4 or 5 and he said "my hairs still red it can't be that dirty"  as if  he wouldn't wash it till it turned black

i remember when i lived in the city if i went 3 days without a shower  i could scrape this black grunge off my skin that would cake under my nails..all airborn..  (i was told its mostly motor oil and tire rubber thats just in the air from al the cars) i couldnt imagine letting that all build up in my hair

nah  see most of us here did nothing but wash and let it knot, washing is what makes it dread

yes if you manualy start them they will loosen a bit when you wash but thats fine

you didnt have to start them you could have just washed and not brushed and it would dread

every wash causes it to knot then when you sl,eep they compress

some people /especialy if they go to a salon might not wash for the entire 1st year! just afraid of them loosening.. but then they have to force them to dread because they arent being washed

i think most people here who use twist and rip or something to start typicaly want to wash by day 3 or 4

when you feel you should wash then wash

if your itchy and feeling dirty theres no reason to wait to wash

especially if you got gel in there you want to get out

you might need a clarifying shampoo but a vinager rinse might do the trick too

like 1/4 cup acv to 10 cups water ..lil stronger then id recomend for young dreads but will hopefully help get the gel out and avoid having to get a clarifying shampoo
