BS/ACV combining? residue in oils?


Dread Maintenance

I put mine in my bs wash mainly because I only use a acv rinse once a month or so, and i need my oils or my head gets super itchy and bothers my face even for some reason.

Hmmm sounds interesting....the ummm Tea tree oil mixed with lavender is kinda crazy, didn't see that coming lol.

Thanks :)

Rinsing with cold cold water helps with dandruff, and I recently started adding patchouli oil to my BS wash (along with my tea tree, lavender, and rosemary oils) which I read helps with dandruff. Its pretty potent stuff (personally I love the smell of patchouli) and I have noticed a nice decrease in dandruff for myself.

I am in the process of getting dreadlocks. Why do I feel like a fake?


General Talk

Back when I still did mine I did more of a light spray, although I would let it dry a bit and spray it again making sure I hit everything all while not soaking it. Then I would wash like two hours later.

What a nice group of replies for my first post! Thank you so much for your encouragement and kind words.

I made two nice peyote sleeves today to put in my hair and they feel great. New beading technique too. I'd seen this type of beading at the markets etc and have seen it done on a loom but not in this style with the sewing needle. I'm enjoying them also because I made them :-) I enjoy making nice things, such as bags, hair ties, pencil cases and library bags.

My dreads are coming along nicely now with a salt water spray every now and then. Does it matter whether I drench them or will a light spray on the outside do?

Dread Maintenance

I try to do mine every 2-3 days because mine gets super itchy, but for the past month I have been so lazy and busy with work that I have been going pretty much a week at a time without washing. I really would like to get back to washing it more regularly

new to dreads- questions about orphan hairs, ends, and maintenance- and a big thank you!


Introduce Yourself

My hair has plenty of movement when its wet and it is pretty much fry in 20 minutes. What I did notice is that after it gets wet it is a lot more locked up tight feeling. Water is not going to undread your hair in any way and the 20 mins or hour or however long it takes for your hair to dry isn't going to impede your dreading process. Even with that thought process, If my hair was wet for an hour and didn't move in any way, so thats one hour of not dreading. So every 24 times my hair gets wet i lose a day dreading. After the year+ it takes for dreads to mature do you think you would notice a few days of not dreading (worth of wet "unmoving" hair time). 365 days in a year, wet every day for 1 hour. 365 hours divided by 24 is roughly 15 days. After a year if I go "man I really wish I was 15 days more ahead" then I will agree with you. I highly doubt that though. I would agree that mold would be a increased risk if you werent drying properly.I swim, kayak, play in the rain, and get my hair wet pretty much every time I shower. No worries on my end.Chewin Change said:
as for the oils, cool good to hear.
and yes, not washing so often prevents your natural oils from over compensating but ALSO not to get your hair wet. if your hair is wet every day, you're obviously spending hours and hours waiting for your hair to dry. that, and i don't know if you noticed, but if you get your hair wet on a day you didn't wash, it's really good at transferring the oils on your scalp directly onto the hair.... if it was dry, you'd have more movement wouldn't ya.... you don't have to believe me, that's your perogative. oh well

Not washing too often prevents your natural oils from over compensating. The key word is washing, getting your hair wet is not washing it. after I even get my hair we and it dries, my locks are tighter and trying to gobble each other up. The fifteen minutes there are essential oils in my hair before being completely washed out are not preventing or slowing anything down.
