been trying this out for a bit, tnr to start with on oct30. very wiry, very defined.
the dreads from tnr stayed in for less than a week, and only one or two have stayed. it is now the straightest it has ever been since starting can i wash my hair more than once every two/three days?. i washed my hair today, and all of them but one finally came undone. the hair itself is still sectioned/sectioning, i've some tangles, and one "dread" or clump of hair that feels a bit solid. could this be because of warm water and not using shampoo?
even though i'm only 19 days in, i worry that my hair won't dread within the span of months. it's thick, straight, and refuses to tangle much even when it was much longer.
i've never combed my hair to begin with and have not used shampoo/products for months. i've been avoiding washing the hair itself for a while, but perhaps a buildup of oil prevents the process from progressing? how should i wash my hair anyway? it's hard to remove oil while also not moving the hair/roots around much. right now i just soak it and flip around different layers under warm water to get it clean.
i want results that will stay and definitely progress, otherwise it may just not be for me. picture is from a few days before two showers. i leave one spraying of saltwater in for a day or two between showers. i'm thinking that maybe washing before sleeping might give better results though. thoughts, answers?
oh, and hi. i'm new
