What do you wash with?
I was using Dr Bronner's and the water in my location is soft, my hair straight and anyways it left me residues. I don't know why.
Then I started bs/acv and on the first wash, the bs ended up super soapy (I guess were all the Dr Bronner's residues). I used acv and buuum, after month and a half of not brushing, it seems it super conditioned my hair to the point that one week later I passed a brush through and I had any knot.
I decided to next wash put less acv on my mixture, and anyways... My hair feels soft and "oily" at certain point, and it's kinda funny because back then before I tried to freeform, my hair tendency was to be dry.
So I just read a message you posted to someone to use acv just once a week. I'm gonna try that. If doesn't work, I'm gonna try twice per month. If it doesn't work, maybe by that time I would be able to buy some bottles of that dreadlocks shampoo to be sent overseas.
