This is an old but good thread! I recently used essential oil for the first time, and I liked how it looked and felt on my hair, but I am wondering how much it might slow down the dreading process? Is it kind of a no-no while trying to get dreads to begin with? I have lots of baby dreads and lots of loose hair still, so I am wondering if it's better to wait until I have mostly mature dreads? My hair tends to stay nice and dry in general.

Also, I have seen some people adding essential oil to their sea salt lock accelerator.... is this defeating the purpose of using an accelerator, or is it good for preventing itch and over-drying? Thanks in advance for any advice!
