ok so here we are 1 year in so far.
started with backcomb then crochet to maintain religously for two weeks then got sick of it and found this site and have done nothing but clean since.
since xmas started to use jojoba and essential oil rinses after each wash to help soften
oh and over the last three days i've split three that i figured were eventually going to be too thick and although tough they spilt fine the entire length and wow were they soft dreads.
thanx to Soaring Eagle and all else for your input,
where/how my dreads would be now if not for this site....... not worth thinking over.
