Bredren Rasta Youth,
Here is some links for the I to check out, to help with keeping the locks clean: Healing Hair Oil and Taking care of dreads
I have not tried the ACV wash, it does seem to work good to remove dirt, mold, residue. The brotha in the video has to wash, rinse, repeat a few times to get the locks deep cleaned. This may work well for the congo lock.
The Healing Hair Oil has herbs in it that will keep out any badness, mold, lice, etc. Try the AVC wash, afterwards apply the oil to your scalp and locks.
Now this RastafarI elder, is probably the happiest man I have ever seen. This is a good video, the elder recalls his experience seeing His Majesty on Groundation Day. Maybe the I has seen it already? This elder has one giant lock, and he wears it like a sash when he removes his tam (near the end of the video:
King, the I can Itinue to let the lock grow, if you want to trod that level of strictness. Or you can separate your locks when they start to all lock up into one. That is your choice, your trod.
Bless Up Iyah
JAH Love and Guidance
