lol man, I time and time again keep having problems with my dreads, I thought this was going to be easy lol! Well anyways, I went ahead and washed my hair tonight. I used a 1/3 baking soda, 10 drops of tea tree oil, 10 drops of island oil and a gallon of water. I mixed that bad boy up until the there were no more baking soda to be seen and I took a shower, ran the mixture throughout my whole hair/head and cleaned my scalp while letting the water run. I started ringing out my dreads (like you ring out a towel) and noticed how much brown stuff (which I can only assume was dirt) came off my dreads. Anyways so far so good and everything and once I get out of the shower I look in the mirror and my dreads look kinda grey. I go back into the shower (cold water mind you) and try to get this stuff out but nothing! Is this suppose to happen? How do I get it out?
