getting frustrated - losing hope
it sounds like we share the same soft silky hair type. i've tried so many things in the last 6 months to aid in knotting. first off i would say if your going to do a bs wash then skip the acv because it will make your hair even softer. i don't know what kind of water you have in your area but with hard water like mine it makes it impossible to rinse castile soaps (dr. bronners) out completely. they always left my hair with a greasy feeling when dry. kind of like i hadn't washed in a week. right now i'm using a clarifying shampoo and it has really bumped up the knotting going on. just scrub the scalp. i would definitely do sea salt sprays on your hair. just mix water and sea salt in a spray bottle and spray your hair on the days you don't wash. i do a stronger mix than others on here because my hair is in such good condition and a little sea salt doesn't do anything. drying it in the sun helps too. definitely get a wool tam. a tam is a larger sized hat that allows your hair to move a bit inside to create friction and ultimately knot. i wear mine to bed too because i can't do the wool pillowcase. it helps alot.
