Burt's Bees Conditioners
5 months in my friend had me use this special organic conditioner, he has dreads and swears by the stuff. 5 of my tighter dreads unraveled! Save your dreads! Don't condition!
You don't wash your hair with aloe vera, you can use it to tame frizzes. Don't wash with it. Use a baking soda/water mixture, then rinse with ACV. Here's a recipe: http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/super-clean-dreads-safe-for
You can use rubber bands to section, as long as you take them out after. Just twist & rip OR backcomb... people usually do one or the other. No idea what you mean by "stuff with a nit comb". I'd suggest skipping all of that and letting you hair go natural for a few weeks... it'll form more natural sections so you're not forcing hair into sections. This may result in dreads splitting down the line.
As I said, only use aloe vera if you need to tame your hair down a bit, but use sparingly. By doing the BS/ACV wash you can mix in essential oils which help with dandruff. Read the thread that I linked to. Also, your hair may be greasy now but as you progress it will become less and less. Just remember to wash whenever you feel you need to -- clean hair dreads, dirty hair doesn't. Best of luck.
I had the liquid castile soap the citron one, but now I have the tea tree castille soap bar. Is there any benefit from using one rather than the other if you have any experience with liquid and bar. I've been hesitant to use the bar as I wasn't sure if it would leave build up/get rid of build up as well as the liquid soap. I cycle 7 miles minimum each day so heavy sweat is a daily occurrence for me.
thank you for the tips
