Would you recommend rinsing with some sort of vinegar (if so what kind) before wearing to reduce itchiness or rinsing for any other reason? or would this damage this type of dread in anyway?

You can. Personally, I don't think acidic rinses make much of a difference, but other people seem to disagree. Most people use white vinegar - it will not damage the dread at all. :)
