Another exciting and big step in my journey. Today I washed my hair and for the 1st time none of my young babies unraveled. They are loopy and bendy and wonderful. It’s a huge step and I wanted to share.
Update, since I began my journey I’ve learned alot most from this site. Actually probably all from this site. Since I started here it has been 5 weeks into my journey and I found some loopies today which is very very exciting. Much like planting seeds and seeing those 1st tiny little saplings bud which was also very exciting when I did gardening. Anyway I’ve been using the liquid locking shampoo from the site here and the sea salt spray both if which are amazing and wonderful. I highly reccomend it. This was just an update because It was so exciting to see the loops today.
Oh wow thank you. Every bit of advice is helpful.
I have learned so much reading from this site and wish I found it sooner. I started my research about 2 years ago when I decided to dread my hair. From here I learned and decided not only to do all natural, no wax or rubberbands etc. I also learned and decided not to go to a loctician. I remember saying I really didn’t like that tight bald look and thought it could be harsh. Then I found the post here all about it. So thank you again, this is the most informative site and I’m looking forward to a head full of long healthy dreads. I would like to try the liquid soap since it helps the process.
be careful with bronners, in hard water it leaves very bad residues
the bars some say are safer then the liquid but www.dreadlockshampoo.com is as pure natural and even more ethical and made for hard water...plus the liquid helps the dread faster
