Wow! You have amazing hair. I bet it'll make fantastic dreads too.
I could tell once i looked at the pictures you put up!
you're making some excellent progress. With hair like that it really doesnt matter what you do, its gonna look sweet. lol
i twistNrip mine. now im just neglecting it.
i didnt go natural because i hate the way my hair sticks to my head when i wake up. There is no way i could let it do that all the time.
id hate it and my hair is a lil to short to lock with that method.
mine is coming along slowly but surely. The ones on the top are driving me nuts because they are lagging behind. I jsut try to let them be.
bad ass whats up are you going natural with the locs or what?
dude your hair is awesome. Ive always wondered if my hair would look like that if it was super long.
my lil mini fro looked kinda like it. are you mixed?
welcome could definately see that hair dreding overnight but washing with something like a dread soap will help water dont really get the hair clean
Oh, and ALWAYS dilute it, if you aren't aware that you have to. Dr. B's should be diluted anywhere from 12 parts water:1 part soap - 40 parts water:1 part soap
If you have soft water, Dr. Bronners is great. I never had a problem with it, and I used it for the first 5 years of my locks. But... it is horrendous in hard water. Castile soaps don't wash out in hard water and leave TONS of residue. You can google hard water in the US and see a map to get a good idea if you have it or not. I'm not 100% sure where you are in Md, but it looks like most of the state has softer water, so you should be fine using it
Be careful with the BS wash. Because your hair is naturally drier, ALWAYS rinse out the BS well and then do an ACV rinse. After your normal BS wash, take ~1/4 cup of ACV and mix it with 5 cups of water (You can double the recipe if you want for the amount of hair you have. This is just the ratio),pour that on your head and let it sit for a few seconds, then rinse it off well. BS is a base, which will dry out your hair if used alone. ACV is an acid which will reset your scalp to a healthy pH level. It will help keep your hair from drying out too much. You can use up to 1/2 cup of ACV, but I wouldn't recommend it until your locks are mature
