When can you start to condition?
I have used the BS/ACV and I alternate that with a tea tree and Bronner shampoo, but after a while my hair just starts to feel "brittle" and has NO shine. I realize dreads are not "shiny" per se, but they should look like healthy hair and have a little shine. Mine become dull and dingy - looking and feel like steel wool and a little stiff - almost like I waxed. I am sure it is just my hair type. I dilute the Bronners a ton to not get that sticky feeling now - so I am sure it is not a result of too much soap. I dumped a ton of conditioner on it before I dreaded to keep it silky and shiny looking. I have a small bottle of Jojoba, but when I use that I just feel "greasy". Are dreads usually soft and flowy????? I don't know anyone with dreads to "cop a feel on" ha-ha! In a lot of the pictures I see on here, people's dreads look nice and soft and "fluffy" LOL! The ones I have that are tightening up are really stiff!!! I mean, not sticking up straight stiff, but not "flowy" and soft either, except for at the root where they are not dreaded - then after that is like a hard rope. Normal?????
