I am not sure where you live, but if in the States, here is a map to show you what water type you have. Many dread shampoos & bars don't work in hard water, like Dr.Bronners, they slowly leave behind a residue. If you have hard water, we can help you out with what to use and how to use the Baking Soda wash (just use bottled water for the 5 cups ratio so the BS dissolves properly). Need help, just let us know....Peace
If you are in Canada, I have a map for that area...
Welcome to the community Ryan. The sections you have will become the thickness of where the hair meets the scalp.
