I don't know nothing about dreads..........
well good advice except we no longer recommend the baking soda acv deep clean it weakens hair badly
yes they do, but its flat rate shipping..so best to fit as many in a box before shipping rate goes up so its most reasonable
werd sistas don't deserve your money!
they are appropriately named
id stop using that ..
well most of that is totally normal, though i would recommend the liquid shampoos till mature then bars
the dread caps goofy a waste of money
beenies will slow or prevent progress so ditch that too
when you wash just lather the scalp i scrape at it with my nails then rinse through your probly rubbing the hair around too much
plus putting that silly cap on to wash could be unknotting them too
other then that everything you said is perfectly normal at this stage..you might be loosening them up more then normal..but loosening is part of the early process
its really harsh it exfoliates by actually burning off the top layer of skin making a dead skin paste
dreadlockshampoo has a awesome charcoal based deep cleanse called detox (u have to request it its not on the site yet)
after using it you can suck the water out of your dreads and it tastes filtered and clean (i don't usually drink the water here)
dish soaps..ok if theres no other option but you shouldn't need a deep cleanse unles you get real dirty
