  • roach care

    Hey, can some of you guys give me some ideas about roach care.
    I don't want to use the ACE BANDAGE anymore due to the fact that it is starting to cut the hair.
    I thought about using my little girls tights( If she don't get mad) but I don't think it will hold and it might do the same thing.
    Any help would be nice.
    Thanks DOKSHA

    Hi Paul
    Do you have any old socks? I seen people use old socks to store their roaches. Did you run your fingers thru the hair to straghten them out. I seen some people use a whats called a roach stick to store them.

      roach care

      every couple of months you need to put some lubriderm moisturizer on your hands, go on either side of the hair, press your hands together lightly, and slowly pull up on your roach to keep it from drying out and cracking. if you do that you should'nt have any problem w/ it being on a roach stick wrapped in an ace bandage. my roach is a little shy of 50 years old and ever since i started lubricateing it has done it a world of good.

      hope it helps

        roach care

        Thanks guys,I'll try using the moisturizer.
        My old roach has a ceder stick that has been shaped to help keep things tight.
        The new roach I just got didn't come with one
        so I'll have to make it.
        How well does the sock work?
        Does it stay tight?
        Again thanks for your input.

          Hi Paul
          I would talk to the other dancers about taking care of a roach too.

            I use both a sock and an ace bandage. I cut the toe off the sock so I can pull it off without going against the way the hairs lay. The sock does a nice job of keeping all the hairs flat and straight, but I wrap an ace bandage around the entire thing to keep it tight. So far, this has kept my roach in good condition. Every few months or so I also put some lanolin on my fingers and rub them through the roach hair before I put it away. This was a tip for conditioning the roach that I picked up fromt he lady who tied my roach. Hope this helps.

              Has anyone tried one of those stay-in conditioners?

                reshaping
                by txchoctaw
                My roach has some hairs that are laying kinda weird, and I was wondering if reshaping it would fix that. However, a friend of mine said that if you do that, then you run the risk of losing some of the color. So my question is whether or not that is true.

                by orangepridendns1
                When I was given my roach several years ago it was mentioned that I should condition it with something. I haven't felt the need to until now and I am not sure what to use. I have heard lotion and then brush/ comb with a baby comb. I have heard mink oil. I have heard hair conditioner..so what do you...

                roach problem
                by mexicadancer1
                I have a small problem, I think I wrapped my roach around my roach stick wrong, because now all the hair on my roach is bent and messed up. Does anybody here know what I should do? Sombody told me that I should soak my roach then shape the hair before it dries. Do you think this would work?...
