I forgot to mention, make sure they are 100% essential oils
Hi there. You can find essential oils at health food stores. Here in Canada they are also sold at bulk food stores, which is also a fantastic place to stock up on Baking Soda. Peace
Welcome and Happy Dreading.

Welcome! Good choice on going natural. Just remember to wash regularly and separate when the sections become too large (over 1 square inch at the scalp).

Welcome. Washing every 2 weeks is better than some people, who think you should only wash once a month. But it's still not enough. Baby locks need to be washed a few times a week. That keeps them extra clean, which is great for the process. I'd recommend washing 2-3 times a week for a while. Then you can go down to once a week. But never less than that if you can help it.
Also, retwisting is terrible for locks. It puts too much torque on your locks and scalp. If done over and over, you can actually weaken your roots enough that locks can be twisted right off.
