More hard water issues.
Yep what SE said, I have hard water too and it sucks, luckily I have a water softener to be put in soon yay!
Everyone has good points, they do. Me personally I've been poor and have struggled all my life as a child and now to give my children the necessities they need and food in their bellies. My husband works his butt off and I stay home with the kids because we cannot afford daycare...would I cut my hair for some piece of mind? Absolutely, it's may hair and after everything is scored away I could restart the journey, for being able to accomplish one dream, by sacrificing another (the dreadlocks being the "another) when knowing you can re-accomplish that 2nd dream is well worth it to me, no...money is not everything....no you shouldn't have to change and hide who you are...but money does help and it is powerful sadly, in the end though only you know what's right for you! <3 Namaste.
This is MUCH like what I've learned in this process!
I love the "you used to be so pretty" or "your hair was always so beautiful" OH and the "you're just too lazy to brush your hair"....yes that's it...I take better care of myself and my hair now than I ever did when I was constantly brushing and breaking and tearing it out, and using so much product on it to "tame" what it really wanted to do, only to shove it up in a bun on the back of my head to forget about it lol
