soap


Introduce Yourself

thanks for the info SE. GOOD THING i used the soap once.. i have been using BAKING SODA and ACV plus seawaterbut the soap thing just came across my mind last friday. I thought buying DR. BRONNERs though but i i just coudln't find 1 in the local stores and pharmacies here. soi ended up buying the jojoba soap, just a waste of my money..and there i said it....i think, from now on, i'll stick to BS slash ACV Method. thanks once again. appreciate it.

First ACV rinse yesterday!


Introduce Yourself

well if u cant get apple cider then go for white vinegar, it's a bit stronger though so u just have to lessen the amount.

on the other hand, m having a hard time scoring baking soda here. m in the UAE now and all I can find in the stores is just baking powder. I wonder if i can use it as an alternative to soda?....got tea tree oil but no luck with baking soda... any advice?..wish u all well with your search for acv natasha..cheers

Comparison: Backcomb/Crochet/Wax vs. T&R/Neglect/No Products


Dreading Methods

I had the same thing too, 3 years back, I had dreadlocks by crocheting and waxingand it'sso uncomfy.. the experience is still fresh in my memory.. my head felts so stickycoz of the wax and i had to grab my crochet hook every week to poke the loose back inside and tighten each of my "fake" dreads. i was doing that drilloverand over for 10 months that ifelt like a crocheting and waxing junkie and on top of that, my new grown hair did not even dread itself. so finallyI grabbed a scissor andcut them off with my own hands, mygrandma and momgot so happy though.....it wasa really really bad experience. I will never ever crochet and wax not for all the tea in china..anyhow, I am on my 3rd week of natural dreading and I am so grateful with this site. just gotta be a liitle more patient for my hair to dread. cheers to all dreadheads and soon to be dreadheads.
