An idea I'd like to try with the baking soda wash


Dread Maintenance

I tried again today. Had a much better experience. i needed to bend forward more and keep my head down as much as possible while wiping my eyes in-between wipes. When I did that I didn't get any of the BS into my eyes. Does anyone cover their hair after putting the BS stuff in your hair?

I tried wiping my eyes with a towel but it's like every time I wiped, more of the BS water would drip from my hair.

I've been doing that, but it's kind of hard to keep your eyes closed when you need to pour the water from teh big bowl back into the small one.

Okay, so I tried the bowl method. It worked well, but I had one major problem. I kept getting the BS mixture into my eyes. You know a way to keep that from happening because I'm thinking of wearing my lab goggles while washing my hair.

yea that guy in the video is a chef. but you can find some cheap big plastic bowls at walmart, kmart or some place like that. I use 2 plastic bowls, some times a glass jar for pouring and large plastic bowl for catching.

I like that guys videos. His dreads are so beautiful. I might try your method Mowriyah in the future (his bowls look like cooking bowls and I don't have easy access to those right now) but for now I'm going to just limit how much comes out with my thumb like how Baba Fats recommended. Thanks everyone; now I don't know have to go searching for a used spray bottle. :D

what i do is mix BS up in a small bowl and put a large bowl in the sink and pour the BS mixture over my dreads and let it catch in the large bowl then pour the BS mixture from the large bowl back in the small bowl and pour over my dreads again. here is a video of what im talking about.

Hope this helps peace....

Having some trouble dreading


General Questions

I have been going natural since about June-July of last year. I am an African-American woman with coarse and fairly thick hair. I think I hindered my progress by separating my hair every day (I didn't want my dreads to be too big). So I stopped separating in November. What I'm worried about is I see a few dreads forming in the back, but the rest of hair seems to only have buds or no dreaded hair at all. I even have a few dread balls hanging in the back. Yet when I occasionally look in the mirror, I see something that resembles baby dreads.

My current routine is to wash weekly with BS, up to 10 drops of Lavender/Tea Tree oil, and 3/8 tsp of rosemary oil combined with warm water ( I find it makes the BS dissolve much better). I wash out the BS mixture and then I do a white vinegar rinse (9 parts water and 1 part vinegar; no more than 250 ml) and rinse it out after 3 minutes. Is there something I'm doing wrong or am I just impatient? If you need any pictures, I can try and have some added to this post today.

Yeah. I always rinse out between 10-20 minutes because I wash weekly. I would do it more often but because of my hair type I fear that washing more than once a week would mess up my hair.

i'm wondering if it would cause build up. are you planning on rinsing it out after letting it set?

I love the baking soda /ACV rinse method. It cleans my scalp so well. The only thing I worry about is that when I pour it over my head from my bottle it's not distributing evenly over my scalp. Would it be possible to mix up the baking soda wash, put it in a spray bottle, and just spray it onto my hair? Will it still be as effective?

letting go- how my loopy dreads point out neurosis


Dread Maintenance

My hair is pretty "nappy", so I don't get loops. I've been letting my hair dread for about 7 months, but I think I hurt my progress by constantly separating my hair. So I've decided to just stop doing it except maybe every other time I shampoo. I get these tiny hair balls on the ends of my developing locs. Sometimes I find it cute and other times I worry that I'm doing it wrong. It takes a lot of guts and confidence to go organic I've realized. The only people who have supported me are my cousin and my younger brother and sister. Haven't gotten any bullshit comments from strangers though, so that's nice.
