It's been 2 weeks since I began this phase of my life's journey. My hair went crazy after the 4th washing, got real puffy on top and curly. I spent hours trying to separate the sections as the bottom half of my head was trying to become one big mat. Afterward, I crocheted short chains of wool and put 1" wraps on each strand at the roots, I put them in just snug enough to not fall out, but able to be moved easily and took them out after 24 hours. Not wanting to slow anything down, but it seemed a bit more chaotic then necessary.
I am expecting my first bottle of shampoo and salt spray from dreadlockshampoo.com any day, can't wait to try them out.
