Ahem, an introduction

Well Hello all,

I started dreading about a year and a half ago. I used the backcombing method to do my dreads. Because I got really impatient with my dreads not maturing, I combed them out. Now, I have decided to re-dread. I backcombed in my dreads about 3 weeks ago. I've been using Dr. Bronner's bar soap as shampoo. Although I am very curious about this baking soda+AVC that I have seen mentioned...? If anyone has info on that, I would be interested. Also, I would love to use essential oils if anyone could suggest a good method of using those. My mom and I are very much into essential oils and natural remedies, etc. I have read online that rinsing your dreads with a saltwater solution will help them dread...is there any truth to this? There are so many more questions I could ask, but I will stop here for now. Any information would be much appreciated :)

patience, if you dont know it you will learn :)

your hair wants to lock, and it will given enough time to do its thing. sea salt does wonders, make a solution somewhat close to the ocean and spray your hair not your scalp.

the three oil i use and i think are most essential, no pun intended, are tea tree, lavander, and rosemary (if you have severe dandruff). drop ammounts vary, but you want to use less tea tree, i usually do no more than 5 drops to a gallon of water. then you can do like 20 of lavander and maybe more of rosemary if its that bad.

you can find uses for many oils:
