Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

After looking up what sebum buildup was about, I'm think that's EXACTLY what it is! Thanks for pointing that out :) Wonder how long it'll take to self regulate. I've waited  this long in my journey, whats another month or two right? haha 

 I wash mine every 4-6 days. I don't rinse at all between either (I cover them bad boys up). So I'm definitely gonna try the product in my next wash. Also I've been air drying mine since the beginning, I don't use a towel or blow dryer to quicken up the drying process. I do squeeze the life of them though. Air drying is good right? As long as they have enough time to dry of course.

 thanks for the advice soaring eagle.

Mildew and Rot Knot questions


Dread Maintenance

Found some mildew (mold?) in some of my dreadlocks. Here's one pic (I tried to get more but got extremely frustrated due to my
 inability to take pictures of the back of my head).
Been told by my younger sister that my hair smelled like a 'closet' and a friend once sneaked a quick sniff of them once after a
 scheduled wash, he said they smelled like a wet dog. I knew right then that something was up cause I've read that that's a huge
 red flag of mold/gunk and such. Up until now I would brush it off cause, well c'mon who wants to admit that they have gunk in
 their hair!? Plus as much as I hate to admit this is that I think I got used to the smell and I didn't check the actual
 dreadlocks cause I thought I was doing everything correctly. But NOW I'm noticing the smell even more now.
So the buildup I have is towards the root of the dreads. If I were to grab the part of the dread that has the gunk between two
 fingers and put pressure or move my fingers in a circular motion, it feels sticky and mushy.
I've been using the shampoo bars from dreadlockshampoo (tea tree and peppermint bar) these past 3-4 months. Could it be the
 bars?
Any who I recently bought the Rot Knot (mold killer) off dreadlockshampoo website and I want to ask any instructions on how to
 properly use it? I've also read about a 'Deep Cleanse' and the ol' 'BS/ACV' wash. Which of these three would actually remove
 the problem I have?

P.S. I'm 25 months in the natural/free form method (my profile pic was taken the 2 months after my last hair cut lol). I've only done the bs/acv until  recently switching to the shampoo bars.
 Only maintenance I do is wash and separate

Awesome with the progress, allI can say is keep on going for it. As for my "progress", well for some it might not be good news, but I cut all my hair back in April. Forgot to mention that.

nah it's cool, I find it funny, made me laugh a bit, but yea some people love my hair (moslty girls because of the curls/baby dreads) but others just think I look ridiculous w/ long hair, and they say I look 100x better w/ short hair. And about beads, I think they'll just slip off at this stage, so maybe in the future? once dreads are mature enough ( i don't know anything about using beads so that's my guess). but I'll let you know though, thanks

As of saturday of last week, it has been a year since i got my hair cut, PLUS that same day I hit my 5th month mark of my journey, here's a pic of the 1st day i got my hair cut, and the following pictures shows my 5th month going all natural, and also shows you how much my hair has grew over a 1 year period.

this may look like a congo, it's not, during school i fell asleep, and woke up to a friend who was trying to braid my hair, I was going to unravel it, but then promised her I wouldn't, so lets see if they join together or unravel over the upcoming months

BS/ACV wash is not working for me


Dread Maintenance

I do let my hair dry, before sleep, (I always wash at night, idk if that makes any difference), or it could be that my scalp is trying to produce more oils, then again I wash 2-3 times a week. BUT, when I did begin using the bs/acv wash I searched around for any oils I can include in the wash, and found this small bottle of apple cinnamon oil, so I droped a couple of drops in the acv w/ water mixter, I did that for a couple of weeks. Then closely looking at the bottle, it was a "concentrated fragrance oil", yea, my bad. so I stopped that couple of weeks ago. Other than that, haven't used any oils at all. And I have done what you've said before soaring eagle, use 1 tbsp of bs for each cup of water, same goes for acv. I switch from 3-6 cups of water, to find which one works best for me.

says in the ingredients it's "sodium bicarbonate 100%"

BS/ACV wash is not working for me


Dread Maintenance

I'm at 2 1/2 months right now, the 30th will be my 3rd month mark. I'm letting my hair do its own thang (no t&r,backcombing,wax,crochete), I only wash 2-3 times a week. And I've used the bs/acv wash for about a month but with no good results. The biggest incident happened today. Yesterday night I washed my hair with bs/acv, let it air dry completely, just like any other day. But after each wash, I still have an itchy scalp after the wash, and even the next day. Okay, then this morning, during 1st period at school, I felt something on the crown of my head, so I reach for it, and literally, it was like a volcano had erupted on my scalp, and some type of oil was oozing out. It was gross, and there was alot. Each time I would touch it then look at my fingers, there would be so much oil on my fingertips. I'm guessing it was oil, I really don't know what it was. Prior to this I've always had a nasty scalp since starting out with the bs/acv wash. Sometimes there's like a white muddy like substance on me scalp, other times I find scabs. I rinse w/ cold water, leave the bs soak in my hair for 10mins, rinse w/ water again, pour acv, leave for about 3-4mins, then rinse again w/ cold water. I know for sure that I rinse thoroughly between using the bs and acv, and after. Any advice?thanks.....if you read all of thisalso check out my pics, I kinda created a timeline
