can I also mix them together? I can put two oils in one bottle and use that and it still has the sane effect? I just wanna make sure

yes absolutely you can mix many different essential oils together in your mix. if anything i stick with a few drops of tea tree, rosemary, and maybe lavandar, just shake vigerously to mix completely and break down the oils as much as possible baking soda help this happen too.

Here is a link to help you in the future with dreads and lice, Soaring Eagles is the first reply to the post: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/how-to-get-rid-of-lice-in

Adding Tree Tea Oil regularly to your washing/shampooing will help keep them away from your dreads.

For your brittle hair, Mix 2 capfuls of apple cider vinegar mixed with 5 cups of water and pour on head after you've rinsed out your shampoo or whatever you use, leave it on for a few minutes for a deep conditioning. This will help balance the hairs PH. Normally the ACV would only stay on for no more than a minute because it is a conditioner and if over conditioned, your knots may slip out. I did not look how old your dreads are, but if mature, then they won't slip out.

Sorry to hear you got them, they are such a pain in the ass, everything about them. ...Peace
