Very nice to meet you Heather!
I think i'll leave the Q's to more experienced members . I will say that natural method was my choice of action (or lack of) and i'm very satisfied with the results thus far. i soak my hair with baking soda and warm water for 10-15 minutes twice a week.
Looking forward to seeing you around!
Well... I hadcontemplateddreads for 4 years, up until 3 months ago when istartedmy own
Growing up in a very large family,eachone of us rely on individuality through music,vocabularyand self-image to set us apart from each other (yeah, I know). Unlike other siblings (I assume), I never felt I had to try to be different, because that was who I was. I sometimes feel my sibling are slightlyembarrassedaboutme,consideringhow they try to coax me to do things differently in a way they find right.
Even though myparentswill support any reasonable decision i make; I've always been nervous about getting dread. I guess i've been nervous about change in general and I usually dwell too long on things that ishouldactupon without being scared or nervous of the outcome, or ofsomeone'scriticism.
My dreads are a sign of freedom andareintwined to my very soul. reflecting who i am through my hair is ablessingin itself and allows me to be comfortable with myself.
I'm happy to say I have no intentions of ever ridding myself of my dreads, only ever to see them flourish more.
What do i use to clean my forming hair? Should my wash in the earlier period of my locs be different from when they mature?
I've heard BS and ACV with essential oils is good. I'm really trying to narrow it down to a shopping list so i can buy everything i need to keep my head healthy and clean. I'd be stoked with a list of ingredients, recipes, etc.
If my wash wouldn't need to change from now till then, Anything and everything you guys find to work amazingly for your hair would be great! Really looking to have clean, great smelling dreads!Also, if you could include averaging prices for the ingredients, just so i could know what to expect $$$ wise that would be great!
Peace and Love.
