attempt to create residue
Well, I just ordered a nag champa scented bar (and I have crazy hard, well water) so after I use it, I'll add my two cents if you are interested:)
PS Soooo glad I found this site!
Thanks, no rubber bands... I'll hang in there and proceed forward!
I haven't washed my hair since putting them in and don't intend to for awhile... I've heard I should use Bonner's once a month... haven't even thought about buying it yet... I have an ALBA organic shampoo I used before that isn't tested on animals etc, but leaves my hair so silky feeling even without adding conditioner I know that won't be a good plan
This dread attempt is like a last ditch effort, I went five months without brushing, hoping they would lock naturally, only care being washing and drying every other week, but all I got was a stringy look that never considered locking up:(
I started my dreads night before last and did a few twist and rip and only one backcombed, because I want to keep as much length as I can,,,I'm sticking to the twist and rip ...also because my hair is super fine and the backcombing seemed to be causing a lot of breakage...
My question is this: After sleeping the "test subjects" for two nights, two of the twist and rip completely unraveled and are gone, the other four are hanging in the top half (6" of length, but the lower six inches unraveled) should I be rubber-banding the ends, or tying with thread or something? I have a friend to help me dread my whole head this weekend, but I need to know what I am doing wrong!
Also, can they be twisted and ripped too tightly? Because the parts that are holding together great are a little "kinked" with bends etc and will that affect their overall journey
