Ba Marley said:

thank you for the reply.

do you make a slurry with baking soda/salt combo or sprinkle on straight?

I don't understand the bead situation ... section the hair & somehow attach beads at the base of the section (scalp) or along the length of the section. I'm not african (except at heart) & hair is a little over 12" long when stretched out.

I sure appreciate the help.

switch soaps try the baking soda add sea salt

the milk soap is most likely conditioning

the baking soda is a no touch wash so no untangling

sea salt helps em knot

beads beads are a better idea rthen wraps

but imbetting if u switch soaps it will dread fast

wool absolutely will help

put a wool sweatter over your pillow

Wow this has been a great help. I'm sitting here, twist 'n' rippin' away, not knowing how much I'm damaging my hair!

One day, I'll do the neglect method but I have to not be a minor first, my mother is a Southern-Baptist-Republican who believes all music is noise >.<

SE, you're an inspiration and I say that from my soul.

twist and rips not very damaging if u arent too agressive so if you got to use a method you chose the right one
