I have washed and retwisted three times since starting my journey. I know I'm not washing nearly enough. Buty dreads are all ended up after I do a full wash. So I use BBs shampo spray regularly/ twice a week
Yeah the dreads in the back of a bald head is not a good look : ) I'll invest in that vegan goodness for my hair too. Can I just ask, should I be doing anything in terms of maintenance? I mean, not going to the salon, I don't care for the scalp to be showing, I just want 'tidy' dreads I can wear to work or school, and I say tidy in the loosest form of the word.
nothing stays free...look at water, t ofind good clean uncontaminated water today is getting harder and harder, while a bottle of treated and shipped water is a dollar....we have to legislate and fight to keep our basic rights...even free speech is becoming less free than it used to be before I was born and when I was young....but the good things in life should be free.
Thanks for the welcome! Unfortunately some wax...but that's why I'm here now, to re-educate myself and learn better ways of doing things, I'll scour the forums in the next couple of weeks to get broad ideas...what do you recommend for washing and retwisting? I also love the little question about whether I'm a spammer and dumb enough to admit it, that made me lol.
Not totally. I really liked like the analogy you presented with drads and tree roots. They grow naturally, progressing how and where they want to. Sometimes I wonder if the plant itself wouldn't be a better analogy though.
Our hair has roots yeah, but like a plant, they are not visible to the naked eye. Whereas the hair itself is not only visible, but it too can be coaxed into your particular desired outcome.
Look at the Garden. If you let a garden grow naturally, different variables may come into to play that could possibly be detrimental to the desired outcome. Weeds could grow up and choke out other plants or a more aggressive plant could invade and takeover others that are just as important.
A good Gardner will dress and keep the garden so that it produces as efficiently and effectively as possible according to the desired outcomes.
Ultimately, I understand that there are many ways to get where we are going. And I am glad for people like you who have been that resolute voice in my life when I am thinking dumb. I too desire to be a help in your journey which is why I share these thoughts.
Please let me know what you think?
