Ok so ive gotten to the point where i feel the need to rinse my locks every morning when i wake up...i only wash them with shampoo once, sometimes twice a week...but i was wanting to know if anyone knew if it would be harming my locks rinsing them everyday by simply dipping my head into a bath of warm water? my locks are 5 months old. please get back to me if you have an answer. Thanks guys

it jus seems to make my scalp feel much better doing this...my locks aren't too thick so they dry fairly quick...it prolly takes about two hours for them to completely dry and i rinse them about 9 in the morning....i use a good natural shampoo and do a apple cider vinegar rinse every now and then to make sure no mold to starts to form...i was jus wondering if it would interfere with the locking process?soaringeagle said:

spritzing is beneficial, the weight of the water helps the lock drop down in length and brings lint to the surface. It also promotes the natural curling of hair. Like SE said if you have thick hair which it looks like you do, drying may be a problem with totally submerging your hair. maybe try spritzing. It's up to you though you know your hair better than any of us if your hair dries quick then I don't see anything wrong with it.

sorry this is my first post in this forum... so me gonna say "hiyya dreaders!"for the question of washing the locks...to tell the truth i wash and shampooed 'em every single day... sometimes twice a day (yes twice a day!) since im living in a asian country (malaysia) down near the equator where it is wet and hot all year long...the shampoo that i use is some sort of cheap green tea shampoo sold here....and after bath, i would dry it with a blower...the only thing that i realize is, the locks wont look the same... so i got almost different shape after every bath...i dunno if its a good idea... but here in my country, where im quite hairy too... to not bath in a day will make u smell like shitters especially im a person whose kinda easy to sweat...oh yea... my dread is kinda young still... a month over... method: not combing anything, just but pinching the thin dreads to combine some of 'em(i like 'em phat)...
