Hey welcome, yay another dreaded Mama! My husband and I have 4 kids. One of our daughters has dreads. It is always nice to meet other Moms here.

Welcome. I guess you've already heard the bit about crocheting. Unfortunately it's true. There is no safe way to crochet, since crochet hooks were designed for specific types of thread that are stronger and thicker that hair. Hair breaks pretty easily. And with each pass of the hook, hair gets ripped into smaller and smaller pieces. This process weakens locks and makes then stiff and overly tight. If you only did it once to start, that's great. But if you use it, even once in a while, it does significant damage. In fact, the loose hairs that people complain about and try to crochet back in are cause by the previous sessions

I hear you. And I don't disagree 100% The only thing is that oily hair is a symptom of your scalp and hair being too acidic. While Dawn will be great for getting the oil out, it won't help balance the pH of your scalp. To do that, you'd need a soap that is more alkaline. Baking Soda would be best for this. Because of the condition, you don't even need to rinse with the ACV. At least not for a while. Just the BS mix will help balance your head and help prevent it from getting oily again and again.

That's my recommendation. I can't, nor would I force you to do anything you didn't want. But as hair care goes, Dawn will only keep the oiliness going on forever. By stripping the oils away, your scalp tries to compensate by producing more. But if you made your scalp more basic, it wouldn't need to produce those extra oils

Welcome. Dawn is a detergent. It will strip the oils away, but it also tends to undo knots. You need something that will help promote knotting, and leaves healthy oils that are naturally produced stay balanced. Stripping them away too often will dry out your scalp and cause dandruff
