Welcome. You rinse out the BS before doing the ACV rinse, right? Just checking.
With long hair, some people have seen quicker locking. So hopefully you'll see this too. Good luck. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask
Welcome to the community Tanky T. and greetings to Japan. You have begun a wonderful healthy journey for growing your dreadlocks. In the next year you will see so many changes, including the shrinkage of your hair. I too started with hair almost to my waist, and by 11 months it was up to my shoulders! that is the hair shrinking and thickening up to mature. I also did T&R and made a post to let you know what to expect within the next year and has great tips: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/just-starting-out-what-to-expect
Enjoy your journey and the wild ride it will take you on. Oh yeah, on here you will hear that you may have mature dreads in a year, but with your length and doing the T&R, they journey will take longer, much more hair to shrink up, so hang in there, the wait is worth it....peace
Welcome to the community John. You need some good dread soap or liquid? visit www.dreadlockshampoo.com for the best natural shampoos for dreads. Most of us use it I believe.....The liquid form is a locking up shampoo, and there are bars also.
