oh yes! Maylee's Soap is amazing! I definitley love the smell!!! Haha you sure do have a long way to go!!! well keep posting pictures! I would love to see your progress along the way!!
Hey how is everyone doing now a days?? How is everyone dreads coming along! Best advice just let your dreads be! Don't put too much work into them... the more you maintainence them the more they keep getting off track! Soaring Eagle told me from day 1 to just let them be! So I'm going on 9 months, I wash my hair twice a week, some times once a week. With the baking soda technique, and Maylees Garden's Shampoo Bar(Soaring Eagle told me about the bar, and she does a great job making these bar of soaps from scratch.... http://www.mayleesgarden.com/ ) Definitley check her out! Her bars are super wicked! I uploaded recent photos of my dreads, nothing too crazy yet but they are definitley coming along, and this is all done by washing my once or twice a week, usually every 4 days. Sometimes I just think i dont need to wash it and I wash it here and there every 7 days. I wash usually with the bar soap twice and then baking soda every 3rd time. Other then that i do nothing else. Just let them be. But I would like to hear from everyone, I want to get to know everyone on here. I would like to help if anyone had questions, I'm not a professional but I'll let you know what works for me, or what I would do.
Now for Soaring Eagle..... Beads? Are they really useful at all, I have heard they help lock dreads faster, only thing i see them being useful for is to keep my dreads from getting tangled? What's your opinion on these things? How have you been Soaring Eagle?
WELCOME!!! I LIKE HOW THEY ARE COMING ALONG! DEFINITLEY USE THE BAKING SODA METHOD! IT WORKS! ALSO LOOK INTO MAYLEE'S GARDEN BAR SOAP!! I USE THAT AND IT WORKS WONDERS!!! MY WASH METHOD IS EVERY 4 TO 6 DAYS, I USE THE BAR SOAP TWICE, THEN EVERY THIRD WASH I USE BAKING SODA, THE BAR SOAPS ARE HANDMADE TOO, THE LADY IS FREAKIN AWESOME! AND THE SCENTS ARE AMAZING!! LOOK INTO IT! GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR JOURNEY!
