Hello. I am new here, so I apologize if these questions have been addressed already.
I am debating starting (natural) dreads but have a concern with my hair.
My hair/scalp is naturally oily. To the point that if I don't wash it at least every other day it looks terribly greasy. If the natural method is used, can I still wash my hair as often as I would when NOT trying to dread? I've seen sites that say to not wash hair for a week after dreading, but that is with the backcombing method and wax being used (ew...)
As of right now may hair is about 20 inches long, very thick ,and slightly wavy in texture.
Is there anything (like a special shampoo) you guys recommend for combating oily build-up?
Any help/advice is appreciated.
