No more maintenance.
My dreads are 2 months old now and up until this point I have used crochet hooks, I've palm rolled, and I've used a loose hair tool. I am stopping all of it. The crochet hooks kept breaking, palm rolling does nothing for the long run, just for the 20 minutes until you need to do it again. And the loose hair tool just undoes everything i tried to fix by crocheting. I never spent this much time on my hair before. It's starting to get ridiculous. All I'm doing from now on is washing them. Which I actually don't know if I should even do anymore. I keep hearing that it's okay to not wash it but then I hear clean hair dreads faster. If your curious, I just rinse with the baking soda and oils. Once that's rinsed out I do the ACV that I add a few drops of lavender and rosemary to.
I started my dreads using the T&R method. Since I've had my dreads, I'm noticing how I am starting to love the look of natural dreads more and more. The way mine are growing in are awesome so I would hate to take them out and start over with neglect. BUT I am thinking about taking a few out and letting them do their own thing. I have thick curly hair so it couldn't be any easier.
When it comes to sleeping, I don't know what to wrap my hair in. Or if I should even put it up at all. I've tried tams, bandanas, t-shirts and they are never on when I wake up. Should I even bother?
