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*!
