1  Re: Dreadlocks in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by shenene on: September 02, 2008 08:14:11 PM
We finished dreading my hair on Friday; it took an entire week.  35 hours.  Ouch.  Here's a picture:



That's after four days; they've already calmed down a lot.  The first two days, these babies were sticking up, down, front, back, you name it.

Now I have some questions.  I'm waiting to wash them, since I've heard that for brand new dreads it's good to wait about a week, but dang, my scalp is itchy!  And I've been sweating a lot, between working out and walking to class in the humid Midwest summer.  Will all the sweat cause nastiness to grow?

Also, how do you guys wash your ears when you're not washing your hair?  I'm super afraid to get any part of my hair or scalp even the tiniest bit wet, since I've read that if it doesn't dry properly, you can get mold/mildew.  That's also part of my concern with all the sweating.  And the skin around my hairline is getting kind of pimply.  Embarrassed
