Is it ok to use baking soda and acv once a month to wash my hair? My towel rub dreads are 7 months old and I have been washing them once a month with baking soda and acv. My wash method wetting my hair w cold water then on a pouring a pitcher with 5 cups water to 1/2 cup baking soda, letting that sit for 5-10 minutes then rinsing it out and pouring a pitcher of 5 cups water to 2 caps ACV on and rinsing it off immediately. My hair stays very clean through this but I m wondering if once a month is too often.

From my experience with washing my hair with a baking soda and water mixture (at most a "level" tablespoon per 8 ounces of water plus chosen essential oils and maybe a carrier oil). It is better to rinse your hair out with plain water before using the optional apple cider vinegar mixture. The apple cider vinegar mixture is closer to being a conditioner than a water rinse.

WIth dreadlocks, washing your hair gradually less often is helpful because your body gradually produce less "Sebum." In between washes the sebum produced becomes a natural scalp and hair follicle conditioner.

IF USED... the baking soda mixture is better for your scalp if you pour on upto half of the 8 ounces on you head, massage your scalp some, and let it set for a few minutes before rinsing it out with plain water.

The dreadlock shampoo "SoaringEagle" mentioned is a variation of "Hair beer" shampoo and take your pick on aroma. I currently use the unscented one maybe once a week.

I am planning on getting that shampoo soon. So your saying if you use the baking soda to not use the apple cider as a follow up and just rinse with water instead?

Unless you wish to use a conditioner after using a "shampoo." Yes, the ACV mixture is like a conditioner and conditioners are optional.  

If I recall correctly, conditioners were originally developed to counter harsh traditional shampoos that removed too much sebum from the scalp.  For the fun of it, I have not used a conditioner in at least five years.

I noticed I've got some white, sticky kind of also greyish buildup in a lot of my dreads. Its on the inside of them. What is this and what can I do to get it out? I ripped two open and tried scraping it out but id have to tear open the whole dreads to really remove it. thanks
