Well essentially, dreadlocks are locks of knotted up hair. Your hair will naturally form its own sections as you will probably start to see within the first couple weeks (these are the sections you will begin to separate so they don't form congos). When the hair forms these sections, it won't matter what length your hairs are. So after awhile all of the hairs will tighten up into dreads. All in all, don't worry bout' a thang! Layers won't effecct anything, the hair will dread all the same.
And as for the an apple cidar vinegar rinse, if your scalp feels fine and isn't getting itchy or flaking, you won't need it. Just do whatever you need to to make yourself comfortable. If your scalp feels fine just doing a baking soda wash, just do that. Just keep it simple (:

Hi there, I saw on your friend request you were interested in my routine. Well basically, I just do whatever feels comfortable. I try to wash as little as often, usually ends up being around every 3 days. Whenever I wash i use a baking soda rince with a few drops of rosemary, lavendar, and just 2 drops of peppermint essential oils. Afterwards that i rince with a apple cider vinegar and water mixture to restore the PH balance on my scalp because I get dandruff and itchy scalp VERY easily. It's been almost2 months and i'm still having bad scalp issues, but the essential oils and ACV help a lot! And i'm sure you've heard, always let your hair dry completely before getting it wet again or else mold and mildew can build up. And for maintenance all i ever do is separate them after my showers (that is if i get them we in the shower, for sometimes i wear a towel over my head) because they will try to congo together like crazzzy, especially in the middle layers of hair. But that's about it. Just keep them clean and let them do their thang!
if u can get a tam to stay on at night it might help..might not too but most ppl cant get it to stay on so dont bother
u dont need to tho
wetting it will help it dread u can do the sea salt sooner but yoir going to want to rinse it out dont leacve it in all day or anything and u dongt have to use it too often once or twice a weeks plenty
u can add the sea salt to your bs soak or spray it on 2 hours b4 u wash
but adding it to the bs is good enough
