wash and seperate thats all they need
why would you
palm rolling does nothing if you dp ]o it gently (ok it seems to help for a few hours maybe a day) but after that its back to the way it was
i=f you do it enough to do anything permenant it does permenant harm
palm rolling is only temporary at best & best when done with products (which most are crap) & can be harmful & damaging. if you watch babas video on palmrolling he shows how it breaks the hairs at the roots & the damage isn't noticeable until they grow out more. they will round out & tighten on their own given time, you don't have to mess with them.
welcome but gotta warn u crochets extremely bad for dreads it just does extreme damage and delays progress by like 6 months or longer
whats really a shame is u had such amazing hair for natural dreads!
i would throw that hook away right away
Welcome. But crocheting is the most damaging thing you can do to dreadlocks. It breaks hairs all over the place and weakens your locks. One session takes up to 6 months to recovery. It makes more frizziness which makes you need more crocheting to fix it.
If you leave them alone, they will fix themselves. But the more you crochet, the more damage is done. Eventually they can snap off in places and even at the root making a bald spot.
The most important thing ot know about locks is to NEVER do maintenance on the roots.
welcome but wow u did everything wrong and u got to remove that ewvil wax
your dreads wont last if you did all that if u dont undo all the harm u did
every single thing dreadheadhq recomends ids destructive and wrong
Welcome. But everything that DDHQ sells is damaging to locks and toxic to your health.
Their lock peppa is a scam. Al you need is some seal salt and water and you have your own lock peppa, and it only cost you a few cents, instead of a few bucks.
DHHQ shampoo is extremely toxic, and is actually not a dreadlock shampoo. It is a hunting shampoo repackaged with a neat colourful label.
Wax completely prevents locks from forming, It creates an illusion of locks because it glues your hair together into long candles that look like locks. But if you wash the wax out, you'd see that they were neveractuallytangled. Wax is a hydrocarbon and NEEDS a detergent to wash it out. That's why their soaps contain SDS, or SLS which is extremely toxic to your health.
Crocheting is the most damaging thing that can be done to locks. All it doe sit breaks hairs into smaller and saller pieces which weakens them to the point of breaking off at point. They can even break off at the root, which will leave your with a bald spot. It also delays locking by 6 months for each session with a needle.
Their butta is also a bad call because it builds up in your locks making them heavy and filled with residue.
The only thing you need for healthy locks is to wash them 2-3 times a weak with a non residue shampoo. African textured hair needs a little more conditioning, but caucasian and Asian hair shouldn't be conditioned at all, unless it's brittle or dry. And then, only a some essential oils are really needed. Aloe works well, but will slow down the process
