From Interlocking to Natural: My Dreadlock Journey
I did a sea salt spray and washed with drbronners this morning. It seems that this combination helped my hair out...I can't seem to really find any of the problem areas that I had posted recently, as I looked through them just now they seemed to be back to more normal...so it leads me to wonder if maybe the shampoo I am using it what had caused the roots to loosen as they did, because now when I am looking through my hair after this last wash, now with drbrnners I don't really see the problem areas. So would it just be wise now to maybe change soaps I am using and stop using the beer soap on my dreads, or could I still actually continue to use it or should I find a new shampoo? - ie move to drbronners and or the new bar soap I have...although I kinda have been hoping to be able to use up that beer soap before opening my other bar soap. But if it isn't the beer soaps doing is it really the interlocking? (As my last maintenance of interlocking was at about the 6 or 7-month mark of my dreads first year - which was now about 3 years ago. My last maintenance overall was maybe 2 years into dreads...I stupidly once tried to take in loose hair, - with a sewing needle, but I have never done that again and never will, and that didn't seem to do much damage - or said damage, which has probably healed by now, thankfully).
So over all my question really is what is the best course of action as far as my soap situation goes, and was my root issue short lived or will it continue for a while (if so how long of a timeline am I looking at for the roots being loose)?
Edit: I may have spoken too soon, I do think some of the roots that have seemed to come loose are still in a loose state, but I kind of expected that....I just hope it doesn't regress more.
