General Questions

crochet makes then super tight so 1/3 the size of a healthy dread they will fatten up..too much

20 dreads is the absolute minimum youd want they will be really fat when they recover

Question about washing method


General Questions

take a bone, submerge it in acv for 24 hours, and it becomes rubberized

why rubberized? because it has been partially dissolved, broken down at the molecular level (this is also why i do not drink soda most sodas will completely dissolve a mouse or a severed finger that got into the batch between the time its bottled and reaches the shelf)

acv is an acid..not as strong as some but strong enough to over time dissolve bone

its used to balance the ph after using the alkaline baking soda   since hair should be slightly acidic..

but if you wash with just acv your going to make it way too acidic, too soft too conditioned and slightly dissolved

diluting an acid does not change the acidity, instead the nutral water takes on the acidity of the acv..its less concentrated ofcourse but still just as acidic

acidic hair tends to over produce ooils  and that is when its in the acidic side of hairs normal range, acv would make it outside the normal range on the acidic side

it is a good degreaser because of its acidity, so works good for cleaning greasy ovens  but not something i would want to wash hair with..

if you knew your hair was way too far on the alkaline side (outside the normal range) then maybe you could use a weak rinse just to restore pph..but a better option is to just use a shampoo with a ph in the healthy range

Unraveling roots


Dread Maintenance

all i ever saw was people letting it dread by doing nothing..but i started decades ago

\now something that happens all on iits own has become a huge megabucks industry 

i have seen people (including so called professionalsd) use anything from wax liquid latex (yes rubber) glue (elmers to supergluye) toothpaste peanutbutter mud dirt ash and well even semen and cow dung

it seems the more professionals there are the less people understand how hair dreads

Unraveling roots


Dread Maintenance

well 1st off perfect cylinders are way over rated..  however let me explain how dreads form naturally

when you wash your hair and don't comb it it forms sections then tangle these sections get loopie as hell (budding in African hair) this is essention

then when you sleep they compress from the weight of your head, when loose and not firm they tend to get flat, however take some silly putty or playdoe  and flatten it 1 way then anothjer and another over and over and the tendency is to become round

so when the loopy stage is over  most dreads will be cylinders  with a couple that might retain bumps or flatness 

the thing is..those are the ones that will be your favorites cause they aren't round and boring

dreads shouldn't all be the same..size or shape  its the variation that makes them unique...and yours

Unraveling roots


Dread Maintenance

well your 1st mist6ake is trusting a loctician! worse mistake you can make

next having tnem up all day will prevent them from locking or at least drasticly slow things

the reason the loctiician added hair is because the plan ahead for the balding they will cause.. prople who never let a loctician touch them never have to add hair

now the roots are supposed to be loose ..way looser then locticians force them to be (that's why 95% or higher that go to locticians get traction alopecia (well those stats apply specificly to African Americans who retwist or interlock)

but all dreads have loose roots if healthy, especially in the 1st 9 months! the roots tighten themselves and should never be tightened by force

over tight roots cause tension, another word for that is traction, traction that causes a specific type of balding traction alopecia the tension destroys the capillaries that feed the follicles 

this is why moist who go to locticians eventually have more scalp then hair

the roots should have (in Caucasian ish hair) 1-3 inches loose in the 1st 9 months and tighten  to no tighter then 1/2 iinch from the scalp (if you can fit a finger under the roots to scratch the scalp then your ok) 

African hair might have 1 inch or so in 1st 9 months then tighten to 1/4 inch

at n0 time should the hairs ever be being pulled perpendicular to the scalp like locticians do..and you should nnever use tight styles to "hold twists in" that only triples the tension on the scalp..and the treat odf traction alopecia

the best thing you can do is let them hang loose..they need to move to dread

also you have to accept the messy stage needs to be messy! they have to tangle and knot... this shouldn't be done by force but rather aalowed to happen gentlt..which means letting them get messy

you say they were started with braids well to stop being braids and become dreads..they have to unbraid..braids to dreads is actually slower then just letting it dread from nothing because they 1st have to loosen and fall apart to dread

Argggggggggggggggh mates


Introduce Yourself

rinse with water

and yea just leave the hairs alone..heres a lil trivia, every cell in your body is replaced every 7 years, every hair on  your head is shed every 7 years as well..so your hair (undreaded) can only grow to the lenghth it grows in 7 years

dreaded however since none of those shed hairs are lost they remain in your dread your dreads can grow much longer

every hair in my dreads has been shed 4 times yet remain in the dread

Question about washing method


General Questions

well the baking soda is harsh..it eats away at the skin.. it exfoliates by burning off the top layer of skin..that is most likely what you have is fried skin..yes it removes it by turning it into a paste but your burning off your skin

teatree rosemary essential oils treat dandruff, but each bottle is as  much as the teatree rosemary dreadlockshamopoo

if you cant afford them cause of shipping the teatree bronners (diluted) ids next best option

Help! My 7 year old dreads are falling off the roots!


Help! Save My Dreads

well i talked to my expert

shes got more experience in hair care then anyone i know..  she thinks you had them way over processed way under washed and likely  only the new growth can recover

your going to have to have a crash course in caring for your own hair..properly  that means no more paying anyone and being committed to doing whats healthiest

what you have is pretty fried and damaged and you might lose some more

how often were you washing them 1st off?  only when you had an appointment?
