yea common issues for many people

wear a crystal, or even a lil piece of cloth on a cord around your neck.. and twiddle with that all day instead

some find any necklace will do but some find the texture of the cloth or cord  is more like hair so an easier transition

Hello, Im trisha. I'm New to dreads


Introduce Yourself

well you came to the right place

just sit back..relax..and let the dreading process take over

you don't have to do anything to encourage dreads.. just stop preventing them

you don't need to palm roll or twist and rip ..or do anything but wash (and separate if desired which is recommended  especially in the early stages

Maturing locs


Dread Products

sea salts best

aloes conditioning.. while it dries it shrinks sucking in frizz making them look smoother less frizzy and possibly appear more mature for the day, but at the same time its really conditioning so will loosen and soften them

let me put it like this

i use aloe as a conditioner sometimes..and all over my head im covered with extremely soft well conditioned hair that just will not dread

then i use the dreadlockshampoo.com lockin up liquid that contains sea salt..once and only once  and i get a dozen baby dreads just like that

in African American hair that absolutely craves moisture ..aloe is worth using ..even before maturity

but other types you want to avoid conditioning, in fact drying it out (within reason don't go overboard!) using sea salt will show quick results in both tangling and tightening

Flax gel vs aloe vera


Dread Products

well aloe is very conditioning

it also shrinks as it dries so can suck in hairs for formal events

flax seed well..depends on how its prepared.. linoleum floors are basicly made from  flax seed oil but i think the stuff the karma gel from dls uses a special method so it soaks in ..flax slightly stiffens the hair..allowing it to move and knot but also stay grouped up in sections

flax isn't as conditioning

either can be used when you need to tame frizz for a formal event

flax that's not prepared properly may harden and buil up

aloes great as a conditioner for mature dreads

From Interlocking to Natural: My Dreadlock Journey


Introduce Yourself

the all purpose soap is for those who chopped off waxed dreads ..its not for dreads.. its for people who used their products and no longer have dreads but for some reason still want to use their soaps

isn't dls like 10 oz or so they seem pretty hefty and large

From Interlocking to Natural: My Dreadlock Journey


Introduce Yourself

that's enough and if you still feel like you have it a week later id switch shampoos and if it persists try a clarifying or anti residue just to get it out then stick with known good dread shampoos

i know your not in the ideal opposition to be picky ..so although ethically i9d never support knottyboy its probably the least harmful option that's easily obtainable

in all these years that's the 1 and only time i suggested them, but thats only cause of your personal situation... not an endorsement or encouragement to purchase them by anyone else who might read this
