thank you all for the comments and sorry for my delayed anwser - I haven't been online much lately. Rachel yes, that's exactly my problem too.. clean from the outside but grotty inside.. unfortunately I live central Europe and I can't really afford anything at the moment and the shipping is too expensive from the US. But I have found Tea Tree Oil which I'm thinking of trying. I might try vinegar too. And I've got some natural argan oil shampoo too, SE, do you think that would be ok? I've never tried these before, how long should I leave the tea tree+vinegar mix on for, or shuold i rinse it out immediately?
I'll let you all know how it went x
rachel nattydee don't give up. your curly hair timeline was such an inspiration for me! I have found that using water that has been filtered and not using sink water. I have only been with dreads for 5 months. So what do I know. But would like to bump the thread and ask more experienced ppl. I also have heard lavender helps the smell if it starts smelling. I currently use the acv method and I think I didn't rinse well and had whitesh gray build u the first time I washed my hair. btw congrats on the 4 year mark!
there are all kinda gross stuff existing used in dreadlocks!
my second set:
I've went to a African hair salon and that way to dread up?
she took a hairstring, twisted it and smeared GLUE into the loc!!!
it was so ugly and it stayed ugly. My head was burning in the chemicals! I shaved off.
