I have had my dreads now for like at least 7 years. I'm honestly really bad about washing them because it sucks to because they are soo big and heavy and take like days to dry even blow drying them. I hadn't washed them in a long ass time and went to do a bs with essential oils followed by the acv rinse. I washed them for quite a while. I went to dry them for a while with a hair dryer and noticed they were all sticky and when i squeezed them there was still tons of water and my hands got covered in white sticky stuff. Possibly baking soda??? Further squeezing them all this nasty brown water came out. A few of them definitely have a funky smell to them. I'm honestly thinking about cutting them leaving a few of them and letting the rest dread up again and not get soo big cause its a pain it the ass. Any suggestions??
