Treatment for hard spots
Ok, yes sadly I have confirmed it, I have some oil built up in at least part of one of my dreads....is ACV the only means to get it out, or could I use hot water?
I ended up using coconut oil, and sadly also ended up using more than 6 drops (maybe about 12, or maybe a little more, it's kinda hard to tell since the eye dropper I was using had the oil come out quick). Since I had to fill up nearly the whole of the bucket I was using....but oddly enough after washing it throughout my
So, an ACV rinse maybe worth a try then? ( I am sort of already feeling like my hair needs moisture anyway....with the way my loose hair has been I am feeling like getting my hair at least wet feels like a good idea....but I'm going to think on that and decide tomorrow, at the very least I'll probably get it wet)
I'm not entirely sure it was interlocked, as I haven't interlocked my dreads since they were like 6-7 months old - which was now almost like 3 years and 8 months ago, as my hair will be 4 years old in May (although there was one dread that was partially interlocked maybe about when they were still young, but it wasn't done fully nor was that ever repeated after that, so I kind doubt that was the case....and I don't even remember which one it was). So if it is reisdue, ACV, although not a great solution to my problem, is literally the easiest thing for me to use, because I already have it, and can just do a soak....
That spot may also be the spot that I thought was a weak spot that I found on my dreads when they were being maintained....if it is from the interlocking in the past is there any way to fix that spot?
So really I'm wondering should I do an ACV soak or is there some way to fix the spot if it was caused by past interlocking?
I have only ever really sprayed it on the roots of my dreads, so I'm not entirely sure if it is the sea salt, as the spot has been on that dread for a long time, it was actually the same spot I had posted a picture of a while back, asking what the cause of it could be. The hard spot (I think it may only be one, I'm not completely sure, though), is on the body of the dread, not near the roots, so avoiding the roots isn't really a problem.
I use sea salt about once a week, I am wondering if it is residue build up from the bar soap I used that was a little overly conditioning, that is pretty much the only residue I can think of being in my hair. I have been leaning more toward thinking it is from residue from that soap, so is it more likely build up or is it possibly from my weekly sea salt sprays? Would ACV be a good remedy for this problem or is there a better way to solve it?
I have a few
I have been having this urge for a long time now, I have been kicking around the idea off and on, about just letting my dreads literally do their own thing, what I mean is congo up as they want to...ya know, releasing myself from all attachment of the physical, that sort of thing (well even more so than my dreads have done so already)....but I'm still unsure, cause if they get REALLY big, they will be harder to manage...and once they combine, I'm stuck with the size they've become....so anyone have any thoughts, advice or ideas on this situation?
