Washing dreads

Hey everybody tomorrow I will be doing my first wash after a whole week since I sectioned my hair and did some backcombing. I will be using Dr. Bronner's liquid soap and I'm just wondering if there is a particular/different way to wash your hair I mean, do I just grab each (soon-to-be)dread and one-by-one apply the soap? or do I just wash like having regular hair? should I be more gentle when lathering?Also, I'm going to try using aloe vera on my hair to see how it turns out for me, but should I put it on before or after washing my hair?Any help is appreciated, and if you have any tips about washing dreads please feel free to add your thoughts.Thanks!

When I used Dr. Bs I'd just mix like a tablespoon of Dr Bs to about 12 or so parts water in an old Dr B bottle, squirt it all over and just kinda rub it around a bit, didn't really scrub. Then rinse, rinse, rinse, and it worked great for me. But once I tried the baking soda and ACV rinse I was hooked.
