Is it not meant to be for me?
Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
It's on its way. Let them be for a little longer, and like SE said, beads would definitely do it.
I would say... Let them do their thing. They will become tighter and more compact, and thus smaller.
Based on the pH levels naturally in hair (4.5-5.5), the ACV rinse helps to counteract the pH of the baking soda rinse (baking soda is a pH of 9, ACV is at a 2, much more acidic.) This makes the hair much more 'normalized', that's why they feel so soft and nice afterwards.
Thank you so much for this. I feel that there is a very widespread misunderstanding of dreadlocks, or better: Many people have given locks a bad name by waxing and having dreads that have the rotting smell. I'll be job hunting within the next month, and I plan on keeping this letter in mind.
