(last re-tight 27 July, current completed 22nd August) Almost 15 month mark! Time seems to pass swiftly after the 1 year milestone.
Although I have all the time in the world now, I was not in the mood to re-tight myself, however, Liz is away and I was not left with much choice. So I decided not to delay the inevitable. Get on and do it, so I washed it on Thursday as usual and decided that I would just use my Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo ...
About 45 minutes into drying time, I noticed that my hair looked funny, not as clean and clear as usual. I rinsed again and examined my hair and realized what it was ...
BUILD UP!!! growl!
Well I never! ( .... had build up before!). My locs appeared grayish with bits of white in places, not a lot, but noticeable to me.
Now I don't have ACV (Gasp! She has EVERYTHING except ACV)
So, head over bath, shower in hand, rinse rinse rinse, GREEN TEA, rinse rinse rinse
It cleared up quite easily, but I need to,
1). Buy some ACV. 2). Recognize that I might need to clarify every 2 weeks. Not sure what I did differently from my normal routine though so will have to be alert.
QUESTION 1. UK loc sisters, do I have to go to a health food store to buy this or simply buy cider vinegar from local supermarket?
QUESTION 2. (anyone ;)) I also hear of bicarbonate of soda being good at removing build up ... which do you prefer? Which is most effective? I hear ACV is smelly ... hmm.
Compare my progress six months exactly (19 feb) and (22 Aug)
I know that MOST of my locks have made it to the teenage stage. I do have 5 new locks around but I am cool with that. I know I am locked because my hair has survived my steam/sauna/swim summer activities, and I have not needed to emergency rescue any of my baby locs.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? your opinions are important to me, (on my hair that is! )
this has been my summer, it is almost over, and back to work next week. Have to give thanks for the job .... Just to give thanks also to two of the most important people in my life. God sends people to love us in various forms, it is good to identify those who we KNOW are on assignment (for good!) in our lives.

Be Blessed ... Nai ... x
