Peace & love,
You can turn the herbal hair rinse into a spray adding a bit of tea tree oil to it as well. Some like to do this and put the spray bottle in the fridge if they have a itchy scalp and need something cool and refreshing.
There is a whole bunch of recipes here too. I would just keep it simple.
Yeah, mine a lot more seperated than hummingbird's!
I think that the main thing I would look out for is them joining together to where they are way big like a big tree branch. In the beginning I just seperated them as the grew in. Now I don't really seperate because they keep themselves seperate.
Maybe in the beginning when they are wet seperate them maybe once a week check them.
I use jojoba oil right after I do my cleanse. You can find jojoba oil at health food stores or on ebay. I got a big bottle on ebay from a seller who also sells other essential oils. I also use tea tree oil in my baking soda and water rinse and my acv rinse. I only use a few drops though because it can be very strong and burn a bit on my scalp.
I also like to make a rosemary/peppermint rinse once a week. I grow my own peppermint and rosemary so I use the fresh herb. I boil a big pot of it until the water turn really dark, let cool and then pour on my dreads.I don't rinse it out. It has been dyeing my dreads naturally too.
If you have any more questions please do feel free to ask.
