Hi y'all!

It is summer in CO, so of course my bi-annual itch to shave my head is occurring. I generally relieve this urge by shaving my mohawk sides. But, this set of dreads is the longest hair I've ever had; just past my shoulders, and it is driving me absolutely freaking bonkers. It's getting trapped under myself while I sleep and causing me to freak, if I've forgotten to flip it up on my pillow and off the bed. How do you sleep with your hair?
I have lots of loose guys. My fibromyalgia prevents me from palmrolling as often as I'd like to. That and the weather has me contemplating an entire shave, but I think it's got more to do with a general displeasure overall with life at the moment, if we're being quite honest. So, instead, I've googled a soak recipe and have decided that it is time for my 1.5+ year old dreads to be cleansed... Maybe that will help get rid of some icky weight, and force me to take a half hour to do nothing but pamper myself and cleanse my head. In so googling for this recipe, I found a New England (where I am from) salon that maintains dreads. I have never visited them, do not know them, but was quite impressed when I saw the FAQs, the education page, etc. why? Because it reminded me of the comprehensive Memories LishD maintained back when I was in high school! When I made the commitment to myself that dreads were going to be a part of my future. So! I would like to pass along this website I stumbled upon.
