almost brushed it all out :(
awwww. you guys are all so sweet. i feel the love i'm going to hang in there. i should've known it was going to be an uphill battle from the start. i had taken really good care of my hair for years and i never had to brush it because it would hardly knot even without using conditioner. i don't even own a brush! lol.
Amber- i tried the bs wash again last night. i used really hot water this time to dissolve it better and i added 2 drops of tea tree oil and 1 Tbs. of sea salt to the mix. my hair is definitely drier feeling today. so maybe i'll stick to this for a while and see if it helps things knot up. i'll alternate with my shampoo once in a while just to keep my scalp from freaking out.
Shanxon- thanks! i guess i did the whining for the both of us i feel a bit lonely sometimes in this journey because my family and others don't really understand it all. it's nice to know i can come here and get support and critique when i need it. i don't get why people think that all dreadies are dirty? but then again there's a homeless man that i see by the local grocery store and he has somewhat dreads but not the kind anyone on here would want. its almost like all his hair is matted to one side of his head and the layers of dirt and grime are holding it all together. ewwww :P
Magicmeganmama- thanks, mama! i know you've been there because i remember encouraging you i guess i just need to sit back and enjoy the journey no matter how frustrating it may be. i really do look awful in hats. lol i just don't have the face for them. i do however like the new snoods i've been making with a pattern i bought on etsy. (http://www.etsy.com/listing/68133816/basic-renaissance-snood-croche...). they're crocheted with thread which is a bit time consuming but i like how they fit me. i get a lot of compliments on them so that makes me feel good even though you wouldn't know all the craziness going on underneath. your so sweet to off up a headband from your shop. i actually have a couple of crocheted headbands that i made for myself. i look "okay" in them. lol i usually wear them around the house especially when i'm cooking and such so we don't get an extra surprise of hair in our meals. please don't pull anything from your etsy shop. if your like me, we all could use whatever money we can get from our etsy sales. i really do appreciate the offer though and your headbands are really beautiful.
Dolly- your just a ray of sunshine in all your posts thank you for your kind words and support. (((H*U*G*S)))
