concerned about dreads..help please
Those are looking incredible!
I've got the legendary Butt Part down the middle. When I wash, I tend to pull one from the other side, like my version of a combover...hoping that it will dry that way and stay that way...and also kind of an effort to "train" them and maybe they'll continue growing that way.
At least they're full on top, so my Butt Part's got a little height to it.
Yeah, I'll play around with it. I wonder if I could wash in the sink and then wander the house for a bit...or tub it. I'll try to do it longer next time and see what happens.
I only let it soak for a couple minutes while I wash the rest of me. Baking soda is strong stuff. Personally, I feel it should only be left on a long time to soak when you're doing a deep-clean... a few minutes is fine for a normal everyday wash, it's not like there's a huge amount of dirt and grime to break down. But everyone reacts differently to baking soda, what works for one person won't necessarily be optimal for another.

I know. But it's cold here. :P Loose, wet hair on a cold trip to town did not appeal to me.
ohh do not tie it back when wet thats what will cause the feet smell tying hair up or back when damp they will mildew fast
whenever theyre damp they gotta hang loose
Nah, I wash about once a week or so.
I did rinse the bs first.

As my hair's drying, the feet smell is going away. I had to run to town soon after I showered today, so I pulled my hair back which means my hair doesn't dry at all. As soon as I let it down and it's started to dry, the feet smell is going away...thankfully. lol!
I did the bs/acv this morning. Mixed vinegar:water ratio of 1:4. Stood under the shower and drained the hot water heater, rinsing (with water) and squeezing each individual dread.
And now I smell like feet.
Ack! Was my ratio wrong?
