root size - separating


Dread Maintenance

Hi guys,

I have my first baby dread now so I'm wondering about separating. The root itself is about a 2.5" long, maybe 1.5", so it seems pretty big. Should I separate hairs?

Overall with regards to separating, besides preventing two dreads from congo'ing, what do you go by for separating- the root size?

some pics of the baby dread I'm talking about- sry! Im bad at taking photos:

How many drops of tea/rose/pepper?


Dread Maintenance

I think I'm gonna try the spray bottle option out for using the oils. I really liked the bs/acv wash but won't be doing it often since it's a bit more time consuming than using my bucks bars

what would be a good ratio of water to essential oils for a spray bottle mixture? (I have peppermint, tea tree, & rosemary)

How many drops of tea/rose/pepper?


Dread Maintenance

I just received my tea tree, rosemary, & peppermint oils. I saw other threads on bs/acv but not much more than a post or two on the amount of drops and want to get more opinions.

so how many drops would you recommend for bs/acv?do you use the same amount of oils in both the bs and acv wash?

I was gonna go with 1 tablespoon of bs per cup of water. How much acv per cup of water do you recommend? I'm gonna be using a gallon-sized pitcher & I'm only 1 month into dreading. Thanks!

Oils for bs/acv wash


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I'm about to place an order at mountain rose herbs for some oils now that I just bought some baking soda and acv. For dandruff, I was thinking of getting tea tree, rosemary, and peppermint. Any suggestions? Thanks!
