Authentic Coconut oil-Good or bad for dreads?
Hello Everyone-- I was wondering if someone could tell me if coconut oil (the real stuff--in the Dr. Bronner's jar) is good for dreadlocks? I have mature locks (3+ years) and read somewhere that coconut oil is good if locks are mature. My regular routine consists of washing with diluted Dr. Bronners and air dryonce a week--nothing more.
<On a side note...I surf and love the way my hair feels when I come out of water. I rinse with freshwater but generally don't wash everytime I surf because I surf 2x or 3x/week. So I wash on weekends>.
Ok, so getting back to coconut oil-- is it good/bad? If it is good, how and when do you apply? My dreads are dry and I need to put some kind of moisture into them.....but don't want to harm them or put something in them that will result in "gunk." Thanks!!!!
