I've been reading a lot of peoples posts about washing your dreads with a baking soda mixture? How exactly do you do that like what parts what do you mix together? The other day I rinsed my hair with vinegar because I read it helps coat your hair color and helps it stay in longer, will the baking soda take out the color? And can I mix in like plus and stuff to make it smell good? Thanks =]

I meant to say oils and stuff to make it smell good
The wash I normally use which was recommended by SE is in a gallon of water add about 1/3 cup of baking soda, 10 drops teatree, 20 rosemary and 20 lavender. leave it in for about 20 mins and rinse, and I love it, and lots of ppl on this site use and love it too! And then you can do an apple cider vinegar rinse for conditioning. I find the wash smells awesome, I love the way it makes my hair smell.
It is really gentle, but I'm not sure if it would fade color, specially bright colors.
Jo, how do you mix your apple cider vinegar rinse, and do you use it everytime you wash?

I've only tried it once, my hair is pretty oily and doesnt really need too much conditioning but I used just a quick splash to a gallon of water. Prolly like a capful or two

the baking soda wash is a work of genius, even though i'm still forming my dreads..it washes it better than shampoo/conditioner ever did :D..for a stupidly small fraction of the price as well :P
back at cha :o)!

and works better on dandruff then anything
peppermint worked awesome for the dandruff I had. I just put some in a spray bottle and spritzed it on my hair and left it on, for as long as it took me to clean up in the shower and then rinsed and it fixed the dandruff in one wash. But I didnt heed your warning about it burning your eyes. Does it ever burn your eyes LoL

Like the idea of doing it your way and just mixing it as I need it . Thanks Hon

I use about two spoons of baking soda in about 2 cups of water. ACV rinse: two splashes of ACV in 2 cups of water.

I use big old Dr Bronners bottles for these mixes and just keep them in the shower. I usually add a few drops of peppermint oil to the baking soda mix, I love the way it makes my scalp tingle!

In the shower I just squirt Bottle #1 (baking soda) over my scalp, gently work it around with my fingers, rinse it out, then squirt Bottle #2 (ACV) over and leave it in for a few minutes before doing a final plain water rinse.

BTW, the baking soda / peppermint oil mix makes an awesome (and cheap and effective) mouthwash too. :-)
i use a gallon at a time u can use less
and it definately should be mixed right b4 u use it
