Will my hair dread?


General Talk

My hair isn't really greasy at all now, it's much better and only after about 3 days does it start to become greasy. Or is that still not enough? I don't mind, just don't want to damage my hair as i've heard just using baking soda can dry out your hair and make it brittle which i haven't had happen to me yet. :)

I'd keep waiting until it's not greasy at all. Still greasy means still a bit too acidic

Anyone? I'm using 2 tablespoons of baking soda to a 500ml water bottle. It's cleaning my hair really well and it's looking much better. So now my hair has adjusted should i start using the vinegar or can i get away without it? I'm a bit concerned about damaging my hair.

Just an update - my hair has adjusted to the baking soda, it's no longer as greasy and i only need to wash it every 3 days! can i just use the baking soda or do i need to balance it out with the vinegar?

HI again.. I tried 1 litre this time and it's still the same, i also tried using more baking soda and it didn't make a difference at all

Baba Fats said:

That's a perfect amount of BS to that much water. But I'd recommend using a larger quantity of the mixture. .5L is not much at all. I wouldn't use any less than 1 liter. When I wash mine with BS, I make 2x1L batches. .5L isn't enough to thoroughly clean your scalp and hair.

Also, how many times have you do it so far?

I have done it around 2 - 3 times so far, with a day in between otherwise my hair will be really oily. I'm also towel drying the way you recommended.

jack said:

Thanks again Baba. I have another question about the baking soda wash. I'm using a 500ml bottle and filling it up with around 2 - 3 tablespoons of baking soda and the rest with warm tap water. I'll pour it over my hair and leave it while im in the shower then rinse it off after. However this isn't washing my hair properly and it is still leaving it dirty and.. well oily. My hair is normally light blonde/dark brown like in the pictures but if i don't wash my hair like everyday it turns darker i guess, and that's what it is looking like now.

any suggestions? should i be using more baking soda? :)

Hi again - Do you think i would benefit from spraying my hair with a sea salt texturing spray? i have read that sea salt helps the dreading process.

Thanks sirick, you're right i bought 200g of bicarbonate of soda from asdas think it cost me about 1.29, they didnt have anything bigger than that. I couldn't find the apple cider vinegar in there so will have a look on amazon.

Sirick said:

Hey Jack, I live in the UK like you.
You might find bicarbonate of soda kind of expensive in stores and only in small amounts, I know I did.
I would recommend looking on Amazon for some cheaper buys, buying in bulk is definitely the way to go to save a lot of money.
