did my first baking soda wash this afternoon, i dont think ive ever felt that clean, absolutely amazing. not going to lie i did it twice, first time just trying to get my hair and scalp, but when i did it again i had a gallon of bs water. i can see what your saying SE about not using soap anymore lol

question, im not even a week in, but i got some teatree oil, and lavander to start my oil collection off today. now am i ok to use these ocasionaly, or frequently? i think i read that you should wait till your locks mature before you can start using oils, but im not sure. im stoked to have my hair smell like lavander all the time, so i want to make sure it wont be bad for the progression of my locks though.

I think lemongrass helps keep the bugs away too.

And you can use essential oils as soon as you like. Just no conditioning oils like jojoba, coconut, shea butter, cocoa butter, etc.

Frank, you definitely should. ;) My hair dries so much faster now, without all that crap built up preventing water and air from flowing through.

I did this again yesterday, and the water was just as cloudy. I'm thinking maybe the cloudiness is just dead skin and scalp oils? I left the water in the bowl as I went to rinse it out and do an acv treatment, and it didn't settle out. Any thoughts?

By method do you mean the mixing it in a bowl and soaking everything in it, or the baking soda and vinegar wash in general? Because BS/ACV is the best method to wash all dreads!
