Doing the natural method
Desirae and soaring eagle,
Here's what I currently do with my hair:
Daily: wash hair with just water during my shower --> shake out water after I'm done --> air dry for 10-30 minutes --> scrunch out any leftover water --> oil scalp in four sections with olive oil --> section hair from front to back --> shake head
Weekly: do baking soda/ vinegar method to clean my hair, then pretty much do the same stuff as daily
I would use ACV but it causes me to break-out so I use white vinegar instead and it seems to work practically the same.
I also spray my hair with water and sea salt (2 tsp because I don't want to dry out my hair) every 2-3 days. I do it at night and then rise it out in the morning.
I can't buy jojoba oil right now (not in my budget), but I do have the following oils available:
lavender/tea tree (combined)
I also have pure aloe vera juice.
Which of these would be the best to add while washing my hair?

Looking forward to seeing how your locs progress. ^_^
How often do you plan to oil your hair for now?
Just gotta add a bit of a correction, though. Afro-textured hair (well, the scalp, really) DOES produce oil the same as everyone else, but due to the way the hair is, the oil doesn't reach the full length of the hair (well, that, and also many people with that type of hair don't properly take care of their hair and scalps, so a lot of mistreatment also leads to brittleness and dryness). ^_^
