Combing out dreads
Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling
ha ha... now that I've got that section combed out, I don't know what to do with it!!
I love the beach and go about 5 times a week.... I had the same questions last week. I judged it on how my hair felt, some days I left it alone that day and washed with baking soda the next morning, other days I just rinsed it out with water when I got home from the beach.
Thank God I didn't use wax! It's funny too how so many people (friends of mine) that have never had dreads are such "experts" and they all said to use wax!! ha ha ah I am so grateful I found this site!
Deezie, my son has dreads, about 2 months older than mine. He had big, almost giant flake looking things at first. He used the baking soda & ACV about every 2 days and it cleared up pretty quikly! If I remember right, he put some tea tree oil in with the BS wash.
Good to know, thank you both! I've been doing it after every wash. I'm only 2 weeks into this so I didn't really know if that was right. It scared me the first time I heard the "popping" sound!! ha ha ha Thankfully I had read somewhere on this site that that was normal or I would have freaked out!!
Mine are getting really dry from swimming in the ocean. I go 4 or 5 days a week. Today I mixed rosemary oil & lavender oil in a spray bottle of water and misted my hair with it. It did seem to help a little with the dryness. I think tomorrow I'll try adding the oils to the ACV rinse.
