The awesome power of baking soda


Dread Products

Frank, you definitely should. ;) My hair dries so much faster now, without all that crap built up preventing water and air from flowing through.

I did this again yesterday, and the water was just as cloudy. I'm thinking maybe the cloudiness is just dead skin and scalp oils? I left the water in the bowl as I went to rinse it out and do an acv treatment, and it didn't settle out. Any thoughts?

I think lemongrass helps keep the bugs away too.

And you can use essential oils as soon as you like. Just no conditioning oils like jojoba, coconut, shea butter, cocoa butter, etc.

That's awesome SE. It would work... I have a friend with very sensitive skin who occasionally takes baths in a weak baking soda mix. She says she loves it.

And Rudy, the times I do use the bs/acv wash, I add a few drops of teatree, rosemary, and sometimes a bit of eucalyptus to the mix.

That's what I was doing, but it didn't seem to really get into all of my hair. It acted more like a scalp treatment than a hair treatment. I need to get myself a shower cap of some sort, so it will soak into my hair better.

And yes FoxPaw, I do notice that some runs down my face, and my forehead feels nice and clean. :D

Yes! It's just a matter of getting all of the hair saturated with the bs solution.

The awesome power of baking soda


Dread Products

I was noticing some residue buildup in the tips of my young dreads from continual use of suave daily clarifying shampoo. I washed with some peppermint bronners to try to remove it, and I rinsed for several minutes with cold water. After my hair started to dry, the buildup was so much worse.

I got a couple recommendations to remove the buildup with baking soda, so here's what I did: I mixed 4 tablespoons of baking soda and 4 cups of water in a large plastic bowl. I want to make it clear that all of the baking soda was dissolved, and the water was completely transparent. I sat upside down on the couch and soaked my hair in it for a few minutes, as long as I could stand to have my head hanging upside down, lol. This is what the water looked like afterwards.So I hopped in the shower, with some more bs and acv, and washed again. My hair was no longer sticky! BS/ACV for life!

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I've had a bottle of this Garnier clear control shampoo sitting in my closet for so long now, I was afraid to use it. All the while my scalp has been in an uproar. I was planning to use an shampoo today, and I think I'll just use that one. Thanks for letting me know it's ok Panterra!

Restart fresh, or hold tight with a year?


Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support

Just keep them bro. Like SE said, they look like they're naturalizing to me, so, let me be your third opinion, just let them be. That's what being natural is all about, you know? Just letting things be as they are without making any modifications, no matter what you've done in the past. Beads are a great idea. I think you've already made the decision to keep them, but I'm reinforcing it. God/Jah/Allah be with you bro.

I have done everything 'wrong' and my dreads are awesome!


Dread Maintenance

You know what, it's your hair, and you can do what you want with it. If you're on here, I'm sure you've seen all the bad things that can happen when you wax, crochet, etc. But if it works for you, do it. It may catch up to you, it may not. It really doesn't matter. Real dreadlocks are all about individuality (and I've NEVER heard of using surfboard wax, that sounds pretty unique to me). Just have fun, and take care, however you choose.
