The back, and top views. You can see how loose they are. Here is a thought/question...I spent a year washing my hair with only baking soda and ACV. I know you want to stay away from conditioners, and though I know that the ACV is *not* a conditioner like from the store, during that year of using the BS and ACV I had a ton of comments about my hair being so shiny and silky. Granted I have straight, straight hair, but wouldn't this hamper the locking process if the ACV makes my hair all silky? Does it help the hair move, without the build up? Just wondering. I'm still using the BS and ACV, put a bit of tea tree oil in it for good measure. I live in the South, and it is *muggy*!
Well, I was trying to put space in between the pictures, but that didn't happen. So this is the start of my dreads. The first 2 pictures are before, the next is of my hubby, lovingly sectioning my hair. This was a labor of love, because when it comes to hair, he has two left hands The next few are half way done. With a bunch of kiddos, and a bunch of animals....well, hair just wasn't the priority. I have about 5 left, so very close. The roots are loose, and the ends, totally loose. They. did. not. want. to. be. TnR! Oh, well, so be it, I will let them do their thing. I counted 64, that's without the last five. I have thick hair, so they are not as thin as I had expected with that count. We shall see how they grow
I tried putting the most current pics in here, would not work, will try another post.
