cherushi13 asked: your dreads are lovely and seem very healthy do you have any advice for a fellow dread head? what you wash with etc :) muchos appreciated
aww, thankyou very much! I don’t do much to my dreads. no wax, ever, horrible stuff. I wash once a week or so using solid shampoo (currently using one from lush, but there are other good ones out there too), and colour them with henna. I do the henna every couple of months, using body art quality henna powder and a bit of lime juice. I don’t bother sewing in loose hair or anything like that, I just keep the roots separated. maintenance won’t damage your hair though as long as it’s done properly. um, that’s about it I think! now I have a fringe I am expecting to have to wash that part more often. I used conditioner on it the other day too (veganese from lush) and liked it.
hope this is of some use!
