So my dreads are about 3 months old now and seem to be extremely dried out towards the ends. Is there anything i could use on them to help the dryness?

right now Im washing my dreads with unscented natural shampoo and adding a few drops of eucalyptus oil and orange peel oil. could that be drying them out? Also I did the baking soda wash the other day for the first time. My hair before i dreaded it was kinda curly and wavy, but it was pretty thin.
my dreads are 2 months old now and i have been washing them with baking soda,tea tree oil,lavender and rosemary. they are getting pretty dry now as i had bleached my hair before dreading. ive bought acv but not sure what i do with it as of yet. i heard mixing it with coconut butter is good ill have to look it up.
ACV will definitely make them softer without making them too soft. In the dreaducation page there are instructions for mixxing ACV but I found that if I take a gallon pitcher of water, put about 3 TBSP of ACV and 20 drops each of essential oils it works well for me.
ACV should always follow BS washes because the BS dries you out.
Also, dreadlocks shampoo from http://shop.dreadlockshampoo.com/ leaves the hair pretty soft and smelling fabulous.
