I'm still struggling quite bad with hair breakage...every day lots of little pieces of hair break off. In the shower, even more little pieces break off. If I touch anywhere and VERY gently pull, I get a several little broken hairs between my fingers! I don't know what to do! I don't want to over-condition them and prevent the dreading process.
All I do is wash my hair. I don't mess with it; I've never crocheted, palm rolled, or done any other damaging things since starting my dreads. I've been washing with 'Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle shampoo' as it was what was in my budget. I read it was good with dreads and didn't really leave residues. The damage is from being dyed too often prior to starting my dreadlocks journey, I'm assuming.
I don't know if the condition my hair is in requires me to cut it and start from scratch due to irreversible damage, or if there is chance of rescue! Do I need to comb the few baby dreads I have out and repair my hair if there is a chance of rescue, or can I leave it alone and hope it can repair without risking combing out the progress I've already achieved?!
I am considering switching my washing to BS/ACV. Maybe the ACV will help repair my hair? I'm on a realllllly tight budget, so I can't afford much, but I know at least BS/ACV is very affordable. I plan to get more Vicky's dreadlock shampoo bars when I can afford it, but it is not something I can consider right now.
