Ok you guys take a look at my pics and give me your honest opinions. View the last days of month 1 before going to month2. I know it may still be a little fuzzy in some places but this was my first try.

I was so concerned about messing my hair up. :cen So I figured, I might as well mess it up while I’m in the beginning stages than later. You have to understand I HATE SALONS. I use to perm my own hair, just to avoid going to one. Yes I’m seeing a loctician but it’s still a salon and I still have to sit under that dryer. I can do all this in the comfort of my own home, at my own time. Naked if I wanted to be. LOL I know T.M.I.

Now, I will go at least once a month or every two months to have my hair pampered and to make sure I’m on the right track but there is SO MUCH MORE freedom in doing it yourself. I learned so much about my hair.

Aloe Gel, I didn’t know that there were 2 types. The type they use at the salon is a more thick jelly type which makes my hair flake. The one I purchased is more of a liquid gel texture and when dry it’s dry and not oily like the jelly. It TOOK FOREVER to do my hair! But I had fun and I learned a lot. :yaisse2 :yaisse3

Will someone explain to me about Dr. Bronners shampoo, why do you have to dilute it?

View my fotki and give me your honest opinions. Thanks.

I think it looks great! Good Job! You did the coils yourself, and parted? I could never part mine, I just grab and twist. So when I decide to start locking I will have to have a professional start them. Keep up the good work!

I have never heard of an aloe vera gel that flakes. I wonder what brand they used. The thing with Dr. Bronner's is that it is extremely concentrated and if you use it without diluting it, your locs may have a dull film on them and they will more than likely feel dry. BTW the fuzzies are a good thing.

I don't know either but I will try to find out. I'm thinking it's eiher my hair texture that just doesn't except it or the brand itself. I'm not the only one that has discovered flakes. I saw another post on here about Aloe Vera and flaking sometime last week.

Hey thanks for the info out the shampoo. How much dilution should I do to the bottle?

Oh and about the frizzies, yes it'a a good thing and it's all apart of the stages but LAWD it gets SO BAD!

But I'm rolling with the (box

My husband uses the Dr. Bronners without diluting it,
and it doesnt bother him.
But he doesnt have locs.
I just started locking and I will dilute it when I use it on my hair, to avoid buildup.
I will be looking for some aloe vera gel now that I hear thats good to use.
Too bad I couldnt view your pics.
