This dag on build up is really working my nerves. I have tried everything and it just seems to be increasing, I'm at my wits end with it. I'm really about to take down a whole bunch of my lock and colmb them out before I go for my retightening in two weeks. I am sooo blown!!!! I have washed it, I havnt used anything in my hair in forever and the buildup has increased. I just don't get it, I don't know what is causing it. I tried listerine and yeah that did nothing. Yesterday I tried nail poilish remover and that did nothing. Grrrrrrrrrrr...... I hate my hair looking like its dirty and like I've been rolling around in dust and glue. This really ticks me off.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest. My hair otherwise is doing well. It has gotten very thick and my consultants says is has expanded to just about its full thickness in my lock pattern. I have had a tremendous growth spurt which is probably due to the change of the season, who knows. Anywhoo I hope someone can help me with suggestion on how to get rid of this build up because I can't take it.

In other news, I can't believe Michael Jackson is dead, I mean its so sad. Music has never been the same since he left the game and now it will never be the same again. Michael Jackson had such an impact on the world through his music and his action. His music was not about the booty poppin and senseless garbage that most of today's music is about, it had substance and meaning. He will truly be missed. Now in death I hope he finds peace and that the media will finally leave him alone.

Consultant to the rescue YAY!!

So I just spoke to my consultant and she told me a few possible reasons for my build up. First no more EO spritz at least not until she can see my locks for herself to see exactly what kind of build up is in my hair, which isn't really a big deal for me anyway because Once the build up started getting out of control I stopped EO spritzing anyway only water every now and again.

Next I was using Fantasia's Aloe shampoo and she said this could be a possible reason because some shampoos even though water based can cause a protein build up in the locks, one in particular to look out for is baby shampoo, humph who knew. You would think Baby shampoo as gentle as it is would be a safe bet but nope, nope, nope. Also my shampoo even though I follow with SL starter shampoo may not be washing out of my hair completely, even though I dilute it, it may still be too concentrated for my locks at this stage.

Finally because its mainly around my hairline, my face creams, lotions, or make-up which I rarely wear may be the culprit. Needless to say I have a lot of detective work to do, until I see my consultant in 4 weeks. She said the slight slippage I have is normal and not due to the spritzing or the washing but that my hair is just really soft in that area and is prone to do it no matter what. NOw I have to eliminate things one by one after I Wash my hair next week and the following two weeks to see if there is any change. That's all for now, Thanks you to all those who offered their advice on my previous post.

Just popping in to say hey. Nothing new is really going on with my hair. I have left it alone for the past couple of days and probably will for the next two weeks or so. I did a lot of manipulation for the past month so I'm going to take it easy. I washed my hair two days ago and even though I banded I still have some slight slippage in the back and on the side near my ear. Not a lot really its more like 5 locks total but it leads me to believe that whether I band or not my hair will slip in those areas because of how soft my hair is.

I used the Listerine thing as a second rinse for my hair because there was some type of build up on my locks near my hairline and along my nape. I'm not sure what it is or what is causing it but it seems to be coming from my scalp maybe? You know when you sweat in your hair and you get that film, that could be what it is and its just sliding up my locks. I don't know it just looks nasty. When I look in the mirror it looks like lint but when you get close you can see that it not lint and that its really in the lock. I have had to really scrape it to get it off and sometimes that wont even do it. It doesn't wash out and I don't like it. Trying to get it out makes me feel like I'm damaging my locks because i really have to dig and pull at it and when I'm done my lock is all fuzzy with spilt ends from me scraping and pulling at it. Needless to say the Listerine did nothing but make my hair smell minty. I'm really anal when it comes to my hair and it being clean and healthy so needless to say this is really driving me crazy.

Anyway the back is starting to fill in and now I'm trying to start wearing my hair without headbands more often so I can train my hair to lay forward in a manner that I like.

How long did it take for your locks to start relaxing and laying down?

Any thoughts on what my buildup may be?
