So, I'm at 2 months, dreads look good (to me). This week, I played around with my washing regime. I noticed that my hair looks best a few days after washing, not right after (too fluffy). So, I haven't washed for a week (far cry from my pre-dread once-a-day habit). Instead, when I'm feeling greasy, I put my hair up in 2 loose pigtails, and rinse my roots (pour water over 'em with a cup). Even after my totally extreme runs, I feel and smell clean. Then I spray my hands with my diluted aloe, lavendar, and lemon concoction and roll. I probably roll 'em once a day, or every other day. Does anyone see a problem with this? I've gotten compliments on how good they look and smell from several people!
