finding the sweet spot!
My "dreads" are two weeks old, and I have been trying to find out when I need to wash, I have a lot of long, super fine, super straight hair that is very prone to oiliness and so far the dreading process has been sloooooow...( or maybe I am impatient?)I have a few dreads that I have tnr'd but mostly I am just beading and neglecting the rest. my hair doesn't knot easily it has a few clumps here and there but most of it remains knot free, you can see my pic below is day after washing.
I wash with the water/bronners/baking soda/tea tree oil/sea salt combo with a very diluted ACV rinse about every three days
My problem is that if I don't wash at least every three days I get super oily hair and it undreads but my hair also seems to really soften up after I wash it too!
Should I wait longer to wash? should I wash more often? I have been pouring over these forums trying to find the answer and can't seem to figure out what I should do.
I know two weeks is super young but just wanting to make sure I am doing it right for the healthiest and most bad ass of dreads
thanks, this is my first post here on the dreadlockssite
