Oops forgot to tell you where my beads are from! The small ones are from Michael's craft store and the big beads, which are actual dread beads are from Etsy, from Robin at Luving Your Locks. There are so many awesome beads on Etsy!
I'll join you for a coffee, here you go
Hi light faerie, I am intrigued on how you are dreading, can you post a pic of the back of your hair one day for me to see. Always like to learn something new about dreads...thanks...peace
Welcome to the community Light Faerie. The baking soda wash (BS) works fantastic, but it must be follwed by an apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse or your hair will slowly dry out in time and take months to restore. After you wash with 1/2 cup of BS to 5 cups water (leave on for 10 minutes and rinse out), then you will mix 1 capful of ACV to 5 cups of water & pour over head, rinse out right away or within 1 minute. This balances the hairs PH and is a healthy conditioner....Enjoy the rest of your journey...Peace
Welcome. But don't bother reback combing them or TnRing them over and over again. It only resets your progress back to square 1. They need to come untangled before they start to lock up and mature.
Do you have naturally oily hair? If not, you need to wash out the BS first, then do an apple cider vinegar rinse to lower you hair and scalp's pH level. Otherwise you will fry your hair and cause dandruff and itchies
