Hello there all. I went through the memories to look for the answer to my question but I only found one relevant entry & it didn't really answer what I was wanting to ask. If you guys want me to delete this after you've read it feel free to let me know & I'll throw it out the window.
So, I have super thin hair, lucky for me it's also super curly so it looks thick. I've read that dreading thin hair isn't a problem as long as you're taking into account that you're hair might not be able to handle it & you may end up having to shave it off. I was just wondering if sectioning your hair for dreads goes the same for thin hair as well as thick? I guess that didn't necessarily come out right, but if I wanted my hair to look fuller I should do medium/small dreads, correct? Like I said, if this is a dumb question or it's been answered just let me know & I'll delete it.

Also, I was wondering if any of you have ever used JASON products during a dreading process. I've been using it for a while & I've noticed that if I don't use the conditioner after washing my hair it feels drier than what a normal shampoo would do for it. Just wondering if any of you have used it with dreads & what you've thought of it.

This is the type I'm using now. No Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates or Paraben Preservatives. Nourishes hair with Vitamins A, B5, C, E and F. JASON 70% Organic Lavender Shampoo is formulated to thoroughly cleanse, nourish and strengthen hair. Enriched with Lavender Extract, Evening Primrose and Vitamins A, B5, E & F, this shampoo imparts vitality and shine while protecting hair from the harsh environment. The intensive moisturizing formula reduces split ends and leaves hair healthy and shiny. Even though it says it leaves hair healthy & shiny it doesn't really seem that way if I don't use the conditioner. I'd like to keep using it with the dreads so I was just wondering if any of you have experience with it or anything. If you don't, would you recommend I just give it a try & see how it goes?

My two dreads seem to be coming along fine, but they're only a few days old. My coworker has told me I should just do my whole head & I really think I might. I think I'm going to add a few more in May sometime after the first two have matured. I want to do it gradually so I have time to be told no by my manager at work.

Anyways, thanks for any help you can give me.
