Location: Bellefonte, PA
In the beginning, I was 'scrunching' the roots of my hair. That wasn't necessary though. But it made them start to get a little bit loopy. They would have locked no matter whether I scrunched them or not, because the grease became like chewing gum, as I had stopped all types of shampoo and was using only plain water. I was just crushing and wadding the roots up with my hands.
