YAY!!! i did my first wash with baking soda rinse provided by SE and it worked great, tea tree oil in it as well. followed with the asv and to by surprise they didnt come out..a little loose but hey..its whatever im along for the ride and we will see where they take me..no wax no soap..as natural as possible minus the back combing lol... i guess i will just wrap them while i sleep right? or does that matter? i dont want them to loosen since they are still a little damp but dont want them to mold..ahhh whatever...ill wrap them peace and love, God above

Leave them loose. The ones you sleep on will actually dread first.

yeah I agree. I'm not advocating actually using Irish spring junk for your hair or body, I was just trying to explain that a "no residue" type soap has always worked best for me. I use black soap which also has a feeling of no moisturizers left behind. It may just be a personal preference, but hey whatever works for each individual is best.

When I first started my dreads I didn't wash them for two weeks or so and wore a tam every day for that period. I'm not going to lie, I also used a small amount of bees wax, which I've come to realize is pretty taboo on this site, but hey it worked for me. I didn't do any sort of aggressive rolling or twisting - just let it do it's thing. After that first two week period I started washing my hair 3-4 times a week with black soap, which obviously helps them lock up by getting rid of lubricating oils and that dreaded wax (pun intended). I haven't added any more wax for over seven years, and they seem to be happy and healthy. I'm just recommending what worked for me personally, not advocating any sort of "best" method. Maybe I would have been better off without the wax, but I suppose I'll never know.
