Need help finding a certain post


Introduce Yourself

im trying to find a timeline a came across awhile ago. It showed a guy (~20 years old more or less) with a shaved head and then shows 2 years of progress. He wore a hat often and he stayed all natural until about a year or more and then went to a salon and then he talked about he regretted it cause he saw how it slowed down the dreading. Can anyone help me find this?

How do wool Tams help form baby dreads?


Introduce Yourself

My mom has knitted me a wool beanie that fits losely on my head. When i wear it it seems that everytime i take it off my hair is less tangley that it previously was. Is it not working because its not exactly a "Tam" that was crocheted? i just dont see how wearing a wool hat speeds up the process. can someone please explain how it is supoosed to speed up the process

Poland Spring 3 Liter for baking soda wash question


Dread Maintenance

shit, ive been using a white nalgene that is NOT BPA free. I have other ones that are BPA free, ive been using it for a couple months. You think my hair would have suffered any damage from that much use? also, can you tell me how much baking soda i would put in 32 Fluid Ounces? that would be much easier for me

Poland Spring 3 Liter for baking soda wash question


Dread Maintenance

So i measured out 5cups of water in a 3Liter poland springs water container because i realized my nalgene 32 ounce bottle wasnt exactly 5 cups. I drilled in some holes in the cap and i drilled a carb in the side so i get a steady flow like a garden water bucket. I wanted to know if it is a health hazard to be re-using a poland spring bottle for my BS/ACV washes cause i have heard rumors that it is unsafe to reuse them. anyone have any thoughts?

My BS/ACV experience, (for those who suffer from dandruff). I also need some advice


Dread Maintenance

i will try 1 teaspoon of ACV, should i be rinsing it out immediately? i remember reading somewhere on here that it should be rinsed out immediately if you dreads aren't mature. And yeah i always follow with a freezing cold rinse. thanks

Hi there. If your scalp wants to be scrubbed with your fingertips, then go for it. Things don't always work the same for everyone. I do recommend that you cut down to 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar for your length hair. Also, when you have essential oils in the ACV, you don't always rinse it out right away. ACV is a conditioner and should only be on for a minute at most. Over conditioned hair can allow any forming knots to slip out. Be patient, let your sections be, dreads usually like to start forming in 6"hair length or more. So try changing that and see how it goes. Finish off your shower with a cold head rinse, as cold as you can do take, that will help with your dandruff & feel real good.

Peace

alright i will try to pinpoint the areas. It feels like its the whole scalp though. When i did massage i gently put all my fingers (except my thumbs) through my hair and tried not to disturb any sections. once i felt my scalp i applied more pressure and made circular motions about quarter sized. i probably should just do this after i dump the BS over my head, then ill wait the 10 minutes. Followed by a no touch rinse and a no touch acv/rinse. What is your opinion on rinsing the hair (no touch) on my off days of washing after a workout? <--- will this speed up or slow down the process? and will wearing a bandana while exercising positioned at my hairline underneath all the hair in order to keep it out of my eyes prevent dreading?

slightly short but ni[ot too shirt u certainly are over masaging if yiu can bnot at all u shiuld but if u must use yur fungers=tipos whike soaking un the bs and scrape at the scalp in itchy areas try not to massage it all pinpoint the areas needing it and gi =o fr it if u scrape at small areas u wont sdisturm the hair

so zero in on the bad parts scraoe at an area no bigger then a quarter just barely enough to scrape off anty chunkines ans move in

i might if it is widespread use all 5 fingers on diferent points and just do a lil scratchy motion then move around

My BS/ACV experience, (for those who suffer from dandruff). I also need some advice


Dread Maintenance

I have been letting my hair go all natural/neglect/freeform since August 2012, at that point and time my hair was very short (much less then 1 inch all around) I started with Dr. Bronners and then used The BS/ACV a couple times and switched to dreadlockshampoo bars for dandruff help (did work well). The past month or so i switched back to BS/ACV by the "no touch" method. I used 1/2 cup of Baking Soda per 5 cups of water with 10 Tea Tree, 10 Rosemary, 5 peppermint essential oil drops. For ACV i used about 2 teaspoons for 5 cups of water with no Essential oils (imo too expensive for me at this stage to just immediately rinse out ACV while using EO's). I kept watch on my scalp pretty much every time before i went to go wash (every 3 days). I noticed that my scalp felt dry and still had dandruff while i was undergoing the no touch method. My hair seems to be sectioning itself out well but i cant seem to understand if my hair type just doesnt want to dread, or if perhaps it is just too short to dread yet. I have very thick hair thats more straight than curly (but not super straight). Yesterday i did my typical BS/ACV wash but this time i massaged my scalp with a decent ammount of pressure "through my hair" aiming at just touching my scalp. I massaged my scalp: #1 while getting my hair wet prior to dumping the BS on, #2 right after i dumped the BS on, #3 while rinsing the BS. #4 after i dumped the ACV on while imediately rinsing out the ACV under the shower head. After all that my scalp has never felt better. All the dandruff was stripped away and i had 0 itchyness even after going for a run (exercising seems to always make my scalp so damned itchy its unbelievable). My hair hasnt really made any progress besides gaining length and forming some sections and some hairs get barely clumped together (super fragile sections that easily come undone). Here is my concern, after that wash all my "fragile sections" for the most part became undone. I want to continue the BS/ACV touch method because it helped my scalp so much, but im worried that its not going to dread because of how easily the sections come undone. But then i think "If i keep washing every 3 days and scrub my scalp and just let my hair keep growing, it'll get to a point where just scrubbing my scalp wont interfere with the progress that has been made further down my hair away from the scalp" <-- is that the case? I get minor minor stress over it and i just need peoples opinons on what i should/shouldnt do. Will just massaging the scalp after i dump the BS on be enough? Am i over massaging? am i not over massaging? i need to be at ease haha. Thank you, i will post a pic on how long my hair is currently. I also feel as though my hair (after becoming undone from massaging/washing) will get back to as much progress as it can get in just a few days because it didnt get that far. Is this just part of the process? I would be 100% at peace to keep scrubbing my scalp even if it "slows" down the dreading process, as long as it would dread eventually in like a year or 2 i would be fine. Photo is down below
