Old dog, new tricks

For the first 55 years of my life I have had short hair. About 18 months ago I decided to grow it long.
My wife and I will be moving to a small fishing town on the northern NSW coast sometime next year to live a quieter and more natural lifestyle. She suggested ( jokingly ) that I grow dreads to fit our new life. She should know by now that I am always up for a challenge. I did my research and came upon this forum and decided that freeform dregs are the way to go for me.
This morning I went for a swim in the ocean and washed my hair with bi carb and cider vinegar, air dried and this is the result. Day 1

Before anyone says anything that should read "dreads" not "dregs". Haha, the problem with posting from a phone

Oh is it still OK as a monthly deep cleanse soak? Or would dish soap be more gentle?

its really harsh it exfoliates by actually burning off the top layer of skin making a dead skin paste

dreadlockshampoo has a awesome charcoal based deep cleanse called detox (u have to request  it its not on the site yet)

after using it you can suck the water out of your dreads and it tastes filtered and clean (i don't usually drink the water here)

dish soaps..ok if theres no other option but you shouldn't need a deep cleanse unles you get real dirty

Acv diluted with water about half and half is good for a monthly rinse, but just don't go crazy and mix with baking soda and wash with it every day as it can make the hair brittle. Looking great!!(:

Its been 2 weeks since I stopped brushing my hair and there has been a noticeable change. I used to brush my hair straight back, but it has now naturally parted down the middle. I can also see where it is starting to section and the hair is grouping together. I am not real impressed with the part or the big fuzzy bush growing out the back of my head but at least it will give the guys at work something to talk about. I bought a couple of wide headbands from Etsy to keep out of my eyes when I am working. Will update in a couple of weeks. Cheers
