hey earth rose! i love looking at your natural dreadies. i'm currently in month 7 of my own natural journey. i'm having the hardest time cultivating knots in my hair though. i was wondering if you had any tips or tricks you could share that might help me. i see that you don't really "wash" very often. i wonder if washing is undoing any progress i make. i see you mention water and tea tree oil. do you do a rinse with these mixed together? thanks so much! heather
