Unfortunately I was burdoned with extremely fine hair that, by all means, does not want to dread, but I'm trying to beat the odds and at this point it seeming rather successful. I've started out with two dreads and hope to add a couple every day [I'm not allowed to have dreads as long as I'm living at home, but I decided that was a stupid rule and am doing them anyway.] This is my problem: I'm using the back combing technique on my hair and am trying to avoid adding all unnatural substances possible, but both of my dreads have tails that I can't get rid of. Thin whisps of hair that won't dread and stick out from the end as long as an inch. I cut it off on the first dread figuring that it would form a nice looking end, but sure enough it was back within a day or two. Is there any way to get rid of these? or should I just be patient and see if it dreads? Thanks for your help! I'll post pictures when they're done.

Tea Tree Oil ?

i know you have talked about tee tree oil before but i can't find anything on how to apply it to your dreads/scalp. i bought some and it says "do not apply directly on skin without first mixing it with the base" because i guess you have to mix the oil with either a massage oil base or a lotion base. what do i do? should i just apply it without mixing it or will it be too strong and potent? and how in the hell do i apply this stuff anyways? does it go on just the scalp or on the scalp AND the dreads or what? please help!!
