Sorry I don't have any pics, but suffice to say that most of may babies are coming along pretty well while others have fallen out completely....
I've continued the baking soda/acv rinse routine - which I love! My hair feels soft and healthy, is very shiny, and has never curled more in my life! Even if I don't stick with dreads forever like I want to, this will probably be a staple for me anyway.
It's just a little frustrating because I feel like things are happening unevenly. I'm a fixer by nature, and seeing some of them stick really well and others go back to simply being curls makes it a bit difficult for me to keep my hands off of them. It's happening particularly right behind my ears. Evereywhere else seems to be doing fine other than some smaller loose strands that I'm trying to encourage back into the more solid dreads. I'm really worried about accidentally running my fingers through the ones that have completely fallen out and pulling them apart even more. Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Or is it just a habit that needs to form?
Also - sometimes after showering, or even at random times during the day, I'll pull my hair off of my shoulders or something similar and somehow pull like 10 or more hairs loose at the same time. Sometimes there are also partially loose hairs that stick out 3 and 4 inches from the bottom of my dreads. In these situations would it be better to cut off the loose hair where the other hair stops? Leave it? Pull them out? I feel like this is probably contributing to some of them coming loose because I must be pulling out some of the structure of the dreads.....
Everything outside of that seems to be moving along alright! I'll take some pictures soon so I can have references to what I'm actually talking about
Love and Peace -
