new dreadlocks shampoo shop to be added works great in hard water

Hmm, do you think these would be OK for young dreads?

Partial Dreadlocks


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I know of a girl with one dread on the side of her head, just above her ear, I assume she sleeps on that side. She says she is just very careful not to brush that part of her head.

The awesome power of baking soda

Tell us how much better you and your scalp feel now!

Im going to start making the mix ASAP. Just got home from getting ACV lol. As stated earlier Ive been scared that my hair would friz up and unravel. However my scalp has been super furious at me lately and Im just sick of the flakes lol. Hoping this works, and hoping my hair still looks presentable, because I assume any gel that was baked in my hair will be removed after this wash. PS Thanks for the advice and guidance man. It's much appreciated.

By method do you mean the mixing it in a bowl and soaking everything in it, or the baking soda and vinegar wash in general? Because BS/ACV is the best method to wash all dreads!

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

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!
