Its not nothing i see something just not as much as id expect with the length
have u tried sea salt sprays? a tam?
i think a week of wearing a ta, 1/2 the day will help u alot
is it oily do you run fingers thru at all?
so I'm not an expert but I pay alot of attention to what people say in the forums.. that and I have some recommendations for ya too
okay I think it's worth a try to wash with somethin else.. maybe baking soda/acv or dr. bronnars. I prefer dr. bronnars and then baking soda/acv occasionally. dr. bronnar's has helped the most tho.
as for the pillow cases, I just meant washing em so there's no oil buildup. you could also try washing your face before you sleep if it gets greasy. if your pillow case is slick, change it to something rougher
you can put a wool sweater over your pillow, or wear a tam. I haven't done it personally but a lot of people here have recommended it.
i've also heard a while in the woods will help it dread it up.. from wind and stuff.
i'm still seeing progress.. it's not bad for 1 month, despite the length of your hair.. even tho your hairs longer, and "should" be dreading quicker, how long is 1 month really!?
Jdwood said:I wash my hair every 2-3 days depends on the oiliness with neutrogena anti-residue. I sleep standing up..no just kidding I sleep on a normal bed with a normal pillow I guess..I don't understand what you mean by change my pillow case I wash it but I don't change it.
awesome! good luck and I'm sure there's nothin to worry about, give it a little time and you'll see! the first month is the hardest cause 1 hair becomes 2... 2 become 3... 3 become 4... you'll only notice when there's lots more hairs clumping together.
oh yea and make sure the wool tam/sweater you get is 100% real wool
lookin forward to your journey!
Hi Jdwood : ) Your hair is so beautiful. I do see it thinking about locking, and I am delighted for you that you're not obsessing over your hair. If you wanna speed the process some, I would definitely go with Br. Bronner's liquid soap alternated (every week or twice a week) with the baking soda/acv wash. My experience after 2 yrs of dreading is, the more I wash or wet my hair, the more it knots and locks. That said, I wouldn't suggest washing more often than you're doing.
