I've forgotten, how much BS should I be using? My first no-touch wash i used 1 cup bs / 5 cups water. Too much baking soda/too strong?

No one?

Well, looking around the site, it seems like I should be using 1 cup BS/1 gallon water . . . is that right? My shortest hair is down to my jaw, appearing a few inches longer in the back (as is natural), and I have tons of it. I imagine I should be using a strongish wash. Because I am disabled and showering is difficult, I have been showering only once or twice a week, three at the most, because it is quite a job for me just to shower using a shower chair.

Hopefully my Medicare will kick in in a few months and I can get one of those walk-in baths; I think that would help a lot.

Anyway, back to the question.

just to add, my showering schedule (2-3 times a week before starting dreads on August 1) has been that way for over six months, and my scalp is considerably less oily that it used to be.

thanks SE. i'll probably just do 1/2 to 5 then. i know i'll need more later on. i used to hate my hair because i have so damn much of it, but the longer it has grown, the more i realized how awesome my hair actually is.

going the organic, freeform, neglect method . . . i know i feel more connected with it as it locks up.

i'll have earned my locs legitimately, and that feels good, even three days in and no knots. some good sectioning and tangling already happening though

thanks, Barrellady. Last attempt at this I put it into a 32 oz spray bottle for ease of use. I think I used 1 or 1.5 tbsp sea salt . . . does that sound right for the sea salt spray?

you all are awesome :)

3 1/2 tablespoon to 5 cups water.... 5 cups = 40 ounces...so for a 32 oz spray bottle, just use 3 tablespoons of sea salt....peace (the ratio is also on the link I gave you.
