awesome, I just hit 8 months all natural no back comb or tnr, and mine barley look like your 2 month olds. good stuff though, they're coming along great!
Thank you Eddy St. King, I will mos def. pass this info on to her for her to try. I think she's basically willing to try anything at this point!
She is of African American decent, and I'd really like to help her to get her skin clearer. What I'm wondering is if anybody here could point me in the direction to some faces washes (essential oil wise or soap bars) that I can order offline or get in stores. Maybe some people on here who are African American have some special mixture of oils or anything that has helped you in the past in a more natural way? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Thank you Barrellady!
Haha I feel you! Everyone needs to let off a little steam now and then. But its because they're mis informed and know no better. Lol, and yeah my hairs pretty damn straight, I think they just like fuckin with me.
it comes with territory my man. I'm not even black, I'm mexican and japanese, but my babies mother is half black, so her mom is full black... I get the same shit from them, although they respect my choice (because I went into great detail about how I care the dreads) ... I still hear it from them everytime I go to their house, something along the lines of, "are you ready to twist em up?!?!"...or...."Lets twist 'em!!!" lmao... I just laugh it off now, can't let it get to you.
lol I've never waited for the sea salt to dissolve before I poured over, even when i did the sea salt pour over without the BS. hmm, I guess its works for this long, i suppose its not that bad to NOT let it dissolve? What's the draw back?
Lol yes sorry I did mean Sea Salt... What if I just did my wash, and rinse routine... I added the coarse sea salt to my bs wash, but didn't wait for the sea salt to dissolve? I could sea grains still on the bottom, I know it wasn't the BS... what happens if I did it and poured over and over without the sea salt dissolved?
I accidentally picked up coarse seal salt, instead of the fine which I have been using... Does it matter?
