Can I use the ACV rinse alone without baking soda?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thanks for the link, I might purchase a bottle of the shampoo when I can afford to. I like baking soda method because it does not mess up the roots of my dreads and create more loose hair, which can happen when I massage my scalp with shampoo. Would there be a method in which I can place shampoo in a pitcher of water and pour it on my scalp?

Can I use the ACV rinse alone without baking soda?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have recently started using a baking soda rinse followed by a ACV rinse to cleanse my scalp and remove dandruff. However I am concerned that the baking soda will fade my dreads. The hair dye and henna in my hair seems to have lightened. Could I skip the initial baking soda rinse and just apply an ACV rinse? Will the ACV alone rinse clean my scalp adequately? Alternatively could I use only a small amount of baking soda in the first rinse?

Dyeing Dreads with Hibiscus Tea


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I recently dyed part of my dreads with henna and indigo. The colour turned out a very warm brown.I would prefer some burgundy tones. I read online that strained hibiscus tea can be repeatively sprayed on hair tocreatea burgundy shade. Would hibiscus tea be safe to spray on mydreadlocks or could this cause buildup?

Dreads dry after baking soda and ACV deep cleanse


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have had my dreads for two years now. I had been regularly washing and using no wax on my dreads. However my dreads had began to acquire a wet dog smell but only when wet. I tried my first baking soda with ACV deep cleanse. My hair feels cleaner but the deep cleanse has left my dreads dry. I used 3/4 cup of ACV and one quarter of a cup of baking soda. I added peppermint, lavender and tea oil for their anti-bacterial properties. Did I use the right proportion of ingredients? I soaked for 15 minutes then I rinsed the baking/ACV out in the shower.

I have now sprayed my hair with aloe vera and lavender oil. However my dreads are still feeling dry. Would there be any other ingredients I could add to the aloe spray to help moisterise. How often can I deep cleanse?

Cheers

Fluff embedded in dreadlocks


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I have been wearing lately a favourite red jumper only to discover bits of red fluff that have become deeply embedded in my dreadlocks. I have to pull the fluff out with tweezers which unknots my dreads. Would a BS dep cleanse or something similar be a better option to remove the fluff or should I just stick to tweezers?

Cheers

Nature Natural Olive Oil Hair Oil for dry, scratchy dreads


Dread Products

My dreads are becoming scratchy and dry. I was recommended Natures Natural Olive Hair Oil. I tried the product and it did soften my dreads. However looking at the ingredients I am concerned it could lead to build up?

The ingredients are: Mineral Jelly, Shea Butter, Soybean Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Oil,
Vitamin E, Herbal Essence.

I am also a little concerned if it could loosen my dreads although they are mature, over 20 months old now.

Root Separating


Dread Maintenance

I have currently stopped crocheting and root rubbing.I am just washing and separating. I have a question about separating dreads. Should I separate the dreads right down to the scalp or should I just separate the body of the dreads and leave the roots slightly connected?

Cheers
