I hadn't washed because initially I had payed 60$ to have my hair twisted. So I was quite paranoid. Was told to go back in a month but really wasn't told if I was able to wash my hair or not. However was told to use an astringent when my scalp itched. I said the heck with that once I obtained information about the Bs AVC wash. My scalp felt like it was on fire and was extremely flaky so I washed it. :) No words really to describe how my scalp feels right now. Hair is holding up well too. Has not started unraveling.

an all natural herbal store. i got lucky, thought to myself i needed to find one, hopped on the bus, was looking, then just decided to get off at one stop, walked for a minute, then bam i found what i needed lol.

i also found oils at apsycicshop.

@SE i noticed i didnt get "essential oil", all are 100% pure though. lavander and teatree are Natures Alchemy, and rosemary is Aura Cacia. i saw that they said "essential oil" on them lol, then the other day i saw the actual brand name "essential oil". is the only difference price, or do you get what you pay for with these oils?

hi!! i just got locs 2 weeks ago and finally washed it today using your suggested method of 2/3 baking soda, 20 drops of tea tree, lavender, rosemary, and thyme oils,2 tablespoons of salt, and some water. poured it on, let it soak for about 10 minutes, and rinsed it. then i poured on a capful of apple cider vinegar with the same oils.... and my scalp still itches and still has all the residue :( what did i do wrong? i just started and tried to wait as long as possible to wash because everyone told me that would help, but now it just looks like i have flakes everywhere, it still itches, and i still have stuff under my nails everytime i ithc :( please help!!

I'm having the exact same issue as Lauren. Although I wash my dreads every 3 days or so. Its my third time working with this whole baking soda wash thing. First it was itchy and white stuff under nail thing. Second time however, after I dump the baking soda mix over my head, I caught up on some reading and let all that baking soda work its magic for a full 30 minutes. Then followed up with some ACV rinse, just 3 caps full not cups..just caps as well as rosemary, lavender and teatree and it was GLORIOUS. A day of victory for my young dreads I would say. This time I didn't have a lot of patience so I didn't wait too long before rinsing it out and from what I read you're not suppose to do acv rinse more than once a week...so I didn't acv. So here we are.. flaky, potentially itchy head. Damn. This feel like a science experiment.

it is a science experiment. the one acv rinse i have done did the trick as far as removing the flakes. but oh well, if i got flaky head for no so be it. i got enough hair to cover it up on the inside for now lol hopefully i can figure it out before its really separated.
