Wha does salt water do for your dreads and how long should you have them before wetting them if you used the twist method for African American hair ?

If you changed the material of your earring, that could explain any breakout. I had problems with wood when I didn't give the new stretch time to settle. That's why I 'm asking what material, and how long it's been that size.

If you had issues with Jojoba, though, it's better to not use it. You could try sweet almond. That is also a great applicator oil for other essential oils. Never apply essential oils directly to your skin without an applicator or diluted in water.

I used it to stretch up sizes until I noticed the brake out and I stopped using it then had no issues ever again

Are you sure it was from the oil? I've never heard of a reaction to it. Maybe Eagle or Heather have.
What kind of material was the earring? How long did you have it stretched that size?

My ear broke out from it though so could I have the same reaction on my scalp ?

Yeah, definitely. I use jojoba on my wooden tunnels. But I started out using it for my hair. It's good for earrings because it creates alubricatedfilm between your skin and the plug that is very close to what your skin would prodice

Get jojoba oil. It's the closest thing you can get to the natural oils your scalp produces. It'll last longer then carrot oil and feel better on your scalp, too.

Like Eagle said, for African textured hair, don't bother with sea salt unless you are willing to weigh your hair down with oils to compensate for how dry salt makes you.

I haven't used anything so far besides my carrot oil and that was yesterday but I'm feeling dry so can I oil again or will that be too often

for caucasian haor it dries it out makes ot less oily more knotty and they tighten

for african hair it does the same however african hairs more dry bupy nature so its less helpful and should be used way less if at all since then youd just be adding extra oils to compensate if over dried

use it ovcsionaly noyt often and sparingly
