Newbie here..

Not really sure where to post this question, so here it is.

Currently, my hair is pretty fried--bleached a few times and dyed Lord knows how many. I've always had pretty oily hair, having to wash everyday. I was just wondering what things I could do to help prepare my hair and scalp for dreading.

Thanks so much! <3

Haha I'm probably one of the few people you'll come across that does extensive research on dreads before actually getting them. SUPER glad I did though! That DreadHead crap looked pretty appealing..

Glad you've made the decision to dread, it's an awesome journey, and glad you joined the site beforehand :)

u shouldnt and having it somewhat looser will dread faster then forcing it to be extra tight on day 1

I've been randomly playing with strands of hair and I think after I get my scalp use to not being washed everyday I'm going to use the twist and rip method. From my experiments, I don't have to tear or rip too much to get something that looks like an insta-dread.

washing daily makes u more oily when yiu strip oils constantly the scalp freaks out and pumps out oils to compensate (like if you starve to lose weight your body turns everything you eat into fat going into starvation survival mode) so wash 1 day less often..then 1 more.. maybe even 1 more till u can get to every 3-4 days without oiliness u can do the baking soda without acv to tip the hair slightly towards the alkaline side since oily hairs generaly too acidic (tip it too far and u get dry itchy scalp)

then just let it dread

unfortunately the bleaching and dying probly damaged it alot so u want to go natural or very light tnr nothing aggressive like backcomb! but at the same time the brittleness might help it dread faster too
