How many times did you use it? Suave leaves residue behind. Even the anti residue stuff leave some behind. If you used it once or twice, multiple BS washes should get rid of it. But if you used it continuously, you might want to look into a residue removal session. Dawn Dish soap or the wax remover from dreadlockshampoo.com is great for it. But a lot of residue wont just wash out in your normal washes

i've used it enough. I have dawn dish soap downstairs though so tomorrow i'll wash my hair with that and hope to get the residue out and then from there continue with baking soda washes.

Ok, cool. But you don't wash with it like you normally would wash your hair. Get yourself a big bowl, preferably a pot. Fill it with the warmest water you can keep your hands in for long periods. Squirt in a generous amount of the soap. Then 1 by 1, dip your locks into it and work the soap into them. Try to do it for about a minute each.

Then go ahead and do your normal wash. I'd do this each time before your normal wash for a couple of weeks to be sure it's all gone. it's a bit time consuming. But it's worth it to be sure residue is out.

My locks haven't formed yet, i took out my twist and rip locks and started over. it's only been about 4 days without combing but its never to early to get advice and learn.

Right right. So you could probably get away with washing well with a strong BS wash, and forget the dawn. If you have nothing for the residue to get trapped in, then the BS should strip away any that is clinging to your hair follicles

Quick question, when i take a shower i get my hair wet to remove oils but after i usually throw my hair in a headband to keep it out of my face. Could this cause an issue or delay sectioning and dreading? i noticed my hair is starting to section but its just starting so its minimal. I still dont want to take any steps back. Thanks in advance.

Wrapping it up when it's wet can cause mold and mildew to grow. That's the bigger worry you should have. Wrapping locks up or tying them back will always delay the progress by a bit.

Gotcha. If it is still free to move around, and is not constricted at all, then you should be ok with that
