How long have you been dreading?
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
I started doing the comb coil method by a loctian who used Knotty Boy Wax. I suffered from a constant itchy head. So I remembered hearing that an apple cider vinegar rinse would help with the itchy head. So I made my rinse, and sprayed my entire head with it several times over. My itchy head was relieved. Later in the day, when it dried off, I noticed a lot of the KB wax also came off. I wanted to schedule another appointment with the loctian. However I saw some YouTube videos & websites that advocated the free form/organic/natural method of doing locs. So now I am semi free forming.
