Dollylocks shampoo bar
are you ordering bar or liquid are you washing with hot or cold water
hmm good call i hadn't seen that he was vegan. i have been vegetarian like 38 years or something but not full on vegan (leaning more that way though)
thats something we all missed and i'm happy that even after all these years theres still more to learn
i think your shocking your scalp.. i think its in survival rebellion mode.
lets not worry about looseness right now
what shamppos do u have from dls only liquid do u have the charcoal/ or any bars
i have a hunch and i think its worth 3-4 weeks .. i think the charcoal every so many washes maybe 4 at 1st then 6.. ..i wish there was a thyme bar.. hmm i got an idea..ok.. temporarily.. find an herb shop online or otherwise (online i use mountain something rose.. if you find the post on essential oils in featured its in there 1st 1)
so brew a strong thyme tea wet hair well with water but then as your washing pour the thyme tea over (hotish) slowly to get a good lather. you dont have to use a whole lot of soap just work it into your scalp and roots rinse.. repeat.. ive never repeated but often wanted to haha i know most shampoos tell you to, but who ever has?)
but for you 1st few washes i would..just to be good and clean
rinse really cold well you should start out whatever's comfortable to get the oils out but get progressively colder
next.. lil and i mean very lil jojoba oil in cold cold water pour over scalp even maybe massage it in wait a few min and a lil more cold rinsing
if you gotta do it every other day for 1st week or 2 thats ok
i tghink by 2-3 weeks you'll be ok for 4 days..
you might not need to continue that way beyond a month .. lets not worry about progress lost or gained lets figure the scalp out 1st and the rest will work itself out as a result..
maybe the herbal bars worth trying not sure what the blend is
but charcoal every 4 or so then every 6 or so washes then ..whenever u feels right
i think the jojoba on the scalp that i think maybe in shock might settle it down thyme should also help regulate the oil production.
i know some of the worlds top horologists we can consult as well.
i would steer away from the baking soda if thats what you did..
yes, and, well somewhat no. by that i mean they might never look truly natural. but after about 3 years the obvious crocheted look might fade. 3 being typo9cal, if they loosen enough that can be a lot less
after several months loosening they will dread normally however. just still have some visual signs of crochet much longer
you will lose handfuls of hairs already broken by the crochet.. plus some extra damage from the combing out, but if your slow gentle and patient, use lots of conditioners and dont go at it aggressively thats pretty minimal by comparison
You've decided to comb yours out? I thought that would cause more breakage to the hair more than anything.. I guess not though?
I think I'm just going to let mine do their own thing and not mess around with them too much, besides washing/drying/conditioning.. I'd like to see your progress though, if you can manage to keep updating.
Mine get more fuzzy and loose every time I wash them.
