Back from Florida and missing it horribly. My hair seems to agree as well. The ocean water felt amazing on my scalp and my dreads seem to be much happier after.
I've been washing my hair more often with the bs mix and started using the acv rinse as well. My hair has never been this happy. The dreads are getting frizzier with each wash and are clumping up well. The also seem to be much softer. I have noticed that some are trying to split in two again so I've been assisting them.
Other than that, everything seems to be working out well.
And for those who are curious, this is what I used for my bs mixture:
- 3/4 cup of baking soda
- 15-20 drops of tea tree oil
- a small cap full of lavender oil (it didn't have a dropper end)
- a couple squirts of lemon juice
I put this all in my blender, filled it the rest of the way up with water, blended, and then dumped it on my head and let it sit for 20 minutes. Followed that up with a acv and water mixture. Rinse rinse rinse with super cold water (miserable but worth it) and instant happy dreads. :D
