Okay, I don't have dreadlocks yet- my hair IS a bit longer than in my pic, though. It's time to definitely start making sure I'm doing the right stuff so my hair will lock up as it grows out. Anyway, I want to use Dr. Bronners. I've tried it a couple times here and there but every time I use it my hair comes out all... greasy. Not, like, at the scalp like I'm producing the grease, but the entire length of my hair has a crazy sticky greasy film on it. It feels like it has a whole lot of hair product in it or something- it will stay where I put it, it's so sticky, like it has pomade in it... It's hard to describe. Anyway, I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if there's something I can do differently. Perhaps an apple cider vinegar rinse would help, get the residue off? Or am I just stuck using baking soda forever? I've tried dilluting the Dr. Bronners in a cup of water, but it does the same thing. Anyone have this happen to them, or know what I can do?
Any advice anyone has is appreciated! Much love.
