Hi AJ, a belated welcome to the community. You can do the sea salt spray, a sea salt soak, with both of these just rinse out by the 2 hour mark. You can also add it to your baking soda wash, just let it sit in for the 10-20 minutes. So whatever is best for your time frame will work for you....Peace
thanks for checkin out me dreads pics and yea r locking pretty well id say peace bro
Welcome. The gel wasn't a great call, but if you can get it out, you should be ok. the problem with gels is that they leave huge amount of residue.
Welcome. But Eagles right about crocheting. The only thing worse for locks is felting. Even wax is better, because it can be scrubbed out. But the damage done by crocheting is completely permanent. You can't magically reattach broken hairs. Your locks can heal a bi after just a few sessions, but they will still always be weak. Prolonged crocheting can cause them to get so weak they snap under their own weight.
Also, crochet hooks cause your locks to get stiff and hard. The most mature locks should always be soft and spongy. As they get hard, they trap water longer. This increases the probability of mold and mildew growth.
crochets extremely damaging delays progressby 6 months makes them stigff scratchy weak and ..ruined
