BUT DO NOT USE THE BAKING SODA AND ACV
worse mistake we as a community, and myself personally, ever made, was recommending that!
its wayyyy too harsh
the baking soda eats off your skin
the acv, well put a bone in acv overnight, in the morning its soft enough to tie in a knot, because its been disolved
after a couple years using it i was losing 6-10 inches off dreads pretty much every single day!
if i pinched a dread i got thousands of tiny hairs just come apart between my fingers
after switching from that to www.dredlockshampoo.com my dreads went under the back wheel s of an suv (while drying them out the window...remember with 10 foot dreads..pull them in before slowing down!) and even the slamming my head against the headrest, and going under the wheel, my dreads wernt harmed at all
thats the EXTREME difference in hair strength between the harsh baking soda acv and a high quality all natural gentle shampoo
