Wow! In some of your pictures your hair looks so much like mine. But it seems to be going so much quicker! I wonder why that is.. hm. I guess that extra straightness really makes a difference.
I've been growing mine since December, but I was still brushing the top part..then I ended up combing out the tnr sections I had to start over for a full head of natural, so it's more like the middle of January.. Definitely need to get some more recent updated pictures. But yours seem to be loving their new style and getting right down to business!
Congratulations on such a beautiful start.
Here we go! *natural *
Thank you both for your responses!! Yeah it's definitely new for me, they seem to be really taking off, but what a ratnest I've been using the avalon organics lemon clarifying shampoo twice a week and it tightens up like CRAZY after a wash. Even the little baby hairs at the base of my neck are matting up, and all of the underneath sections are now loops and zigzags. I worry sometimes it's going too fast.... but I also think because it was so damaged and dry from constant chemical processing, that helped it really knot up. I will have to grab a few new pics, I can't believe it's been over 5 weeks already.. I don't miss brushing at all everyone on here has such amazing dreads, I'm trying to go through pics and inspire myself, especially for when I have a rough day.
clarifying shampoos are very harsh and highly toxic only meant to be used 4 times a year to strip heavy buildup, if you dont have buildup dont use a buildup stripper. it will only damage your hair more
