Welcome. Every time you rack combed, you weren't helping it along, you were slowing the process down. And do you mean to say you didn't wash for the first month before you got an organic shampoo? That didn't help. You need to wash 1-3 times a week with a non residue shampoo. Just because it's organic doesn't mean it is good for locks. Most natural shampoos contain too many conditioners and leave a lot of residue.
As or the sea salt. Only use it if you plan to wash withing 2 hours. If you leave it on longer, it will only dry out your scalp and hair making it brittle ad you itch. That's where the Aloe comes in. Aloe is a conditioner. It will help unlock our hair. You should only ever use it if you need to clean yourself up for a wedding or something
welcome backcombing for months was counter productive every time u did u reset progress to day 1
u git to let them dreasd themselves..do nothing
let nature take its coiurse
in reply to you message.......yes pretty much 100% natural and neglect. I did do about 7 TnR's just to see what it would look like. They looked really good in the beginning but not so good now. The rest is natural and my family has calmed down a bit My hair feels so much thicker and healthier than ever. Im washing in 2 Tablespoons of BS mixed with 2 cups of distilled water with a couple drops of tea tree oil which has done wonders for my dry scalp. Also Im using a sea salt and water mixture just to "tame" down frizzies! Ill keep you posted and Ill post another pic at my 4 weeks mark! Cant wait to see more pics of yours!
Thank you so much! And no, I didn't use elastics, just twist and rip in the beginning and sea salt spray on my wash days!
Funny how many people have no vision on how a dread is formed, yet they have an opinion. No one says anything about my mess, (8 months now) they look and that's it, but it must be my age. Yours do look fantastic. Enjoy the journey.

it was impossible to not feature that pic amazing
I washed with the BS/ACV wash every 2 days for a few months with no problems. Some people like to use it as a deep clean once in a while. But if you only wash with it, you shouldn't have any issues
Sounds good. But you may want to start using a soap. Water doesn't actually clean your hair and scalp. And clean hair will lock better. You want to strip away oils and dirt that build up
post a timeline soon
