Thanks! I got them done professionally. It was worth every penny, in my opinion.

Well I'd be interested in seeing, Jezabel. I do understand the camera being focused on baby. Smiley

Chocodog, your dreads look great. What method did she use to put them in??

She backcombed them, the used a Thai-style crochet method to knot them further. It was more of a jabbing sort of thing with a crochet hook. Either that, or she was just that fast at it!

So I have read most of the 149 pages but I am definitely not going to read them all... and well I started my dreads umm 4 months ago?? maybe less but not by much. and I can't seem to find a good way to clean my scalp because every once in a while my head itches just like everyone else (dreaded or not) and well i get this almost waxy kind of substance in my fingernail after scratching...not entirely sure what this stuff is but can anyone suggest anything to help me out plz. Oh, and also I'm wondering a good way to wash the dreads themselves without the knots slipping out because every time I was my dreads seem to get worse and I wash 1-2 times a week...depending on how dirty I feel... I also use a non-residue shampoo made by nutragena or w/e. but im not sure i trust it. anyone have any shampoo suggestions also?

much thanks to all

The waxy substance could be from the shampoo? or maybe dandruff?
umm the knots are going to slip out no matter what...no matter how much (or how uhh..not-much) you wash your hair.
thats what happens with locks that aren't natural, they will come out then start knotting back up, you just have to be patient and go along with the process.

I use Baby Magic Hair and Body wash on my dreads. I buy the HUGE bottle with the pump. I then wet my dreads thorougly, and then squirt some in my hand and start massaging it in between each dread. Don't be shinzy with the stuff. I usually add a squirt or two between each dread. Then, once you have it all over, add a little water and scrub your scalp good. Then, rinse and repeat. I'm not claiming to be an expert, because my dreads are only babies, but I tried several different shampoos, and baby magic hair and body wash works best to me. I did try another baby shampoo, and my dreads were horrible with it, so I wouldn't recommend any other baby shampoo brand (like Johnsons... that's the one that was horrible on my dreads)... Anyway, another thing I do for my scalp.. If its itchy (Which it isn't much, since I'm using the baby magic hair and body wash a couple times a week). I'll put some LISTERINE mouth wash into a little squeeze bottle. Lean over a sink and squeeze the listerine all over your scalp (Be careful not to get it in your eyes, I did, and it does NOT feel good at all!). Then, wrap your hair in plastic wrap or a towel if you have one that won't leave lint, and leave it a few hours (Maybe sleep in it). Then, wash your hair good with the baby magic, and your scalp shouldn't have problems for a while... Smiley I even did this before I had dreads. Plus, if you use a minty flavored listerine, your dreads smell minty fresh LOL...

Apple cider vinegar works like a charm if you don't have listerine
