Amazing!!!! i'm so envious of your thick beautiful hair. looks like your starting to lose length, huh?
Thank you Heather! After trying a few different shampoos, I have come to the conclusion that I may have hard water. I am going to test it to find out for sure, but seems like that's my problem, cause I just can't seem to get my hair clean and my scalp feeling and looking ok. Will try the natures gate tea tree kind, I think I just saw that the other day at the store! If anyone else has any recommendations, I would love to hear em!
PS Heather, I think your hair is looking great, I think I'm just a little behind you on the journey!
Heather said:lol! that should DEFINITELY be the question. i go back and forth between different shampoos. i haven't found the perfect one yet. what works pretty well for me at the moment is neutrogena anti-residue. i wish it didn't smell so bad though. i also like natures gate tea tree shampoo. it's really hard finding something that washes completely clean with hard water but these seem to do pretty well and don't leave my hair super soft.

i'm on a very slow natural journey also. i started with very soft healthy hair so it's taken some time todevelop hair with more grip to it. i don't have very many knots yet either and i'm almost 7 months.
maybe the shampoo your using has conditioning ingredients? sea salt sprays in between washing and wearing a wool tam to bed every night are some of the things that i do that seem to help. i'm still trying to find the right washing routine too since we have really hard water. other people on here also recommend drying hair with a blow dryer to damage the hair a bit and increase knotting.
