1: Fill the sink or container with hot water
2: Thoroughly mix in 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup of baking soda
3: Add in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and the essential oils (feel free to pick any additional essential oils of your choice for some nicely scented dreads)
3: Submerge your dreadlocks in the water including your scalp. Squeeze and massage your dreads and your scalp, having a friend help at this part is convenient. Do this for about 5-10 minutes and then allow your hair to soak for 20-30 minutes, the water should be looking quite murky by the end.
4: Squeeze out all the excess water from your dreadlocks and then rinse them off in the shower, shampooing is optional as they should already be squeaky clean. Dry them off with a micro fibre towel and if possible spend some time out in the sun and voila, clean and healthy dreadlocks!
