Hai Hank so wierd i found you on here love you bud, see ya tomorrow, good luck on your journey!!!
Natural locks can start around 5 inches. They may not start to form locks at that length, but they will definitely section themselves. You may start to see some knotting and looping.
No reason to wait. If you are going natural, you can really start at any length
No reason to wear anything to bed. Just them rubbing on your pillow creates enough friction. They will tangle just fine. Plus most of the time, whatever your war when you go to bed falls of in the middle of the night, anyway
Welcome. But beanies are too tight and will prevent locking and may even force them to grow flat. If you want to wear a hat, get a tam. They are roomy and let your hair move around freely inside. But hats aren't necessary at all. The make you have to separate your locks more often
First, I'd recommend you wash more often. 2-3 times a week is best.
I haven't had lice or any bugs so far. Eagle just recently had a case of lice. He'd be better to talk to about it. I know how to treat them. But if you haven't seen any in a while and treated for them for so long, you're probably fine.
i wash 2-3 ties a week i use the shampoos from www.dreadlockshampoo.com they are the best b4 that used baking soda and acv
try neem seed oil
or dimotacouse earth
but if u havent found any in 6 weks your probly fine
welcome but essentialoils arent enough to get your dreads clean
Welcome. How did you start, too? And what do you wash with?
