R☮ZE:- Welcome to the Adventure, Shannon! You don't have to do much to your locks, just let them be themselves! A wool hat, or a tam, or slouch-beanie are great ways to hide them during their "messy phase".. but as my husband has found out, his tam restricted movement.. and you want movement because that is how hair tangles naturally. For example, someone brushes their long hair, but then gets on a motorcycle for a ride. You can imagine what long hair would look like after that! Movement, clean & dry, and natural is the only way to go! Good luck, honey, and yell if you need anything! ♥
I'm very excited about my hair. I'm very much embracing the messy period. I'm also really happy that I don't have to brush my hair any more. Haha I washed them for the first time today with some dollylocks then dried them throughout. I'm going to keep up the movement. Thank you very much!!!
remember washing is a good thing don't hesitate to wash as often a s you feel you should as long as it isn't every single day (unless you really must then that too is ok)
my guess is most members are washing between every 2 and every 4 days and 95% no longer then every 5-7
very few wash less then that
and i wouldn't recomend washing less then thbat
