You can wash with Baking Soda first. 5 cups water to every 1/2 cup BS let it sit for about 15 to 30 mins and I use a 13oz bottle 1oz ACV with 12oz water with about 5 to 10 drops of coco butter oil I let the ACV sit for about 5 to 15 mins it really depents on how dry my scalp is though. Everyone has their own ways of making their wash and rinse. So yes, you rinse them out really well.

Sure. You can mix whatever oils you want. But when using essential oils, always mix them with either a ton of water, jojoba oil, or sweet almond. Essential oils, straight, are caustic to your skin and can cause irritations.

You can put oils in ACV for a rinse.

She let it go from there. The new growth tangles on it's own. There's nothing you need to do. There will end up being a few inches of straight hair there for a while. But that loose hair pulls itself in and tightens. Once they mature, you'll probably never have more than 1/4 inch of straight new growth at a time

Welcome. I see that Eagle mentioned it, but he's right. Lemon juice makes your locks feel like they'd lock up fast because of how it dries out your hair. But it is really damaging it. Lemon juice is citric acid. It seeps into your hair shaft and breaks it down. That's why people use it to lighten their hair.

My wife used braids to start her first set years ago. It works, but it happens much slower than if you just let them happen on their own. They first have to untangle and then retangle in a different pattern. Braids restrict movement

What did you use to hold your draids together then?

Welcome, take out the rubber bands at the end of your braids. Let them unravel by them self and go from there. I have a friend that did the same thing back in High School. She still has the same set as well. Happy Dreading.
