    I have dreads and really advocate the crochet hook method - avoid alldreaders who use wax or just back comb! I can ask my 'lockdresser' if she knows anyone in the area if you'd like?

    Hair dye is on! Way too excited lol, even though it's just a light brown semi! Already looks really dark though and it hasn't been on 5 minutes.
    Current: Double nostrils, philtrum, nipple. Various cartilage, 9/16'' lobes.
    Retired: Nipple, navel x4, wrist, nape, MD, tongue web x2, lower lip piercings x4, nostril, helix, lobe piercings, septum, cheek piercings.
    4 tattoos.

    What is my life for and what am I going to do with it? I don't know and I'm afraid. I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want.

    Anyone here conditioner-only washing? What do you use?


    I've been using Naked SLS free shampoo but not having fun with it, especially offshore. I want to simplify matters while still being SLS and silicone free.

    ... and I've just found two huge unopened 900ml bottles of tressemme conditioner that have -cones in :/ dammit. They can go to the charity shop if none of my relatives want them.



    (edit) I want hair THIS LONG

    ^ I often skip shampooing my hair (only because i'm lazy though :p) and I actually use the Naked shea butter and olive intensive conditioner, it works miracles for my hair.

    hey, stay young, and invincible, because we know just who we are

    See if you can swap them for Tressemme Naturals, the conditioners in that range are cone free. I use both the Nourishing Moisture and the Vibrantly Smooth, and have found them surprisingly good. I don't use the shampoo though, (when I use shampoo!) as they are only lower in SLS, not SLS free.
    Current piercings:
    Left ear: 7 x lobes, right ear: 2 x lobes, auricle, inner conch. Central labret, left nostril, right nostril x 2

    Past piercings:
    Navel, right tragus, 2 x right helix

    Future piercings:
    Right ear: Tragus, triple forward helix

    Considering:
    VCH, tongue frenulum
