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.

This stage is the hardest ain't it?! I don't have much build up other than some flakes here and there, but at the same time, I am scared to put anything on my hair. I alreay lost 2 locs so I need to figure out what to do. Keep us posted on what you come up with.
