Lint or build up?


General Questions

I just saw today that dreadlockshampoo.com had a new tea tree shampoo. Il probly get that one. I love their other shampoos but they didn't help my dandruff at all. I know you suggested them for me before.

Lint or build up?


General Questions

It's a tea tree shampoo from sprouts, Avalon organics. I forgot I also use the olive oil shampoo from the ethnic section when my scalp feels dry. But mostly I use the tea tree one. I tried the baking soda, rosemary, tea tree and lavender mix, but my dandruff got worse. I sleep with a tam on because my hair gets crazy if I sleep without it. It also keeps my hair out of my face. My dreads are short now that they shrank up. It's more comfortable to have a hat when I sleep.

Lint or build up?


General Questions

I've had my dreads just over a year now. Started with twist and rip and have just left them alone since. I wash every few days with a tea tree shampoo and make sure they dry completely by the end of the day, and separate them. My ends are all starting to dread up and I've decided I want them left out. I started combing a few of them and noticed a lot of white fuzzy stuff. Its what seems to be holding them together. I'm assuming it's just fuzzies but I want to make sure it's normal. I sleep with a wool tam on every night and I'm pretty sure that's why. Any suggestions how to get my ends combed out a little easier? And is this something that I should worry about? I've been meaning to do an ACV soak I just haven't got around to it.

Getting really frustrated with dreading (Dandruff)


Dread Maintenance

I could be wrong, but I was looking stuff up on YouTube yesterday about dandruff. I've only had mine a week now and I noticed dandruff yesterday. So on YouTube I found a video about using listerine for it. It sounds weird but her explanation sounded good. I think that will be a last resort for me. But maybe try it. She did a half and half with water and the original listerine, not the fancy ones, she put it only on her scalp, covered it with a shower cap for an hour and then rinsed it out. It might be a good idea or a bad one. I don't know. Maybe someone will see my reply and offer they'r advice on this listerine thing.

Coconut oil


Dread Maintenance

Ok. That's what I was thinking about the coconut oil. I want them to "dry" out right? I'm starting to enjoy the fizzies to. I guess it gives me my own look. I'm just so use to taming all the fly aways. And I will def take your advice about the knotty boy stuff. What about their bar soap tho? I like the idea of being able to rub it directly onto my scalp. Maybe dr bronners bar soap?

Coconut oil


Dread Maintenance

Ive had my dreads almost a week. They are coming along really nicely but so frizzy. A friend suggested coconut oil, he has natural long dreads. So I got some and used just a tiny amount on each one. I don't notice that it does anything other than make them greasy. I'm also afraid of build up and mold. Can anyone please tell me if I should use it or not? I'm also waiting for knotty boys tightening gel to come in the mail. But again I don't want build up and mold, has anyone else used it?
