Did you add the shea butter while your hair was still wet? I tried using shea once, but it left them looking ashy for some reason.

No, I let my hair get completely dry, then I added just a teensy bit to each lock. Not too much. For the next few days my locks looked super healthy and shiny. They've tightened some too. My hair is not completely locked, but getting there.

Good to know. I've been using olive oil scented with lemon grass oil, but I'm tired of it and I've had the shea butter for a while now.

Used to have them! I still like them, just not for me I guess.
This is from about 2004.

Just wanted to report that my dreads have finally locked. YEA! And now they are growing alarmingly fast. I will post a pick after I twist my roots tomorrow.

(first photo by my friend Kelly, second from like a month ago?)
My hair has grown so much faster since havin em, guess cause I'm not processing them and such.
I just use dr. bronner's once a week and occasionally some rosemary hair oil but I was afraid it might build up in them..

I'm still looking on that one. What have you been using? I was using diluted Dr. Bronner's but that shiitake still clings to my hair no matter how much I wash. It's a hard question because I find it nearly impossible to find stuff specifically suited for African American hair that's also vegan and residue free.

@Mo: I've been using Knatty Dread Shampoo. It's all natural and apparently vegan, but they do not list the ingredients on the bottle, and that bugs me. Otherwise, it's great. Scent and residue free, and designed for afro dreads.

@pistachiorose: Thanks!!

@❀madam dahlia❀: Pics coming up!

ImageThis is from last month. I realize that you can really see my dreads, so I am going to post another pic later. As soon as I find my camera and take one.

Soo in January 2010 I decided I really wanted dreads, but couldn't decide if I wanted them permanently. I made my friends sit with me for eight hours one Friday evening and dread my hair up just by teasing and rolling and putting a bit of gel in it? (I think that's what we used at least). I kept them in for 11 days and then spent a forking painful six hours combing them out. Those 11 days were awesome. I sometimes yearn to have them back. Maybe one day. Anyway these are pictures from that short-lived period.
Image
RIght after my friends finished. Back view.
Image
Another back view a few days in.
Image
A stupid picture of me... But alas the only picture of me from the front with dreads.. which you can't even really tell I have.

Now I miss them again.

You all look fantastic!
I'm getting dreads tomorrow; I've accepted the fact that I can't backcomb the back of my head with anything resembling accuracy, so I'm going to get them done/finished.
