We have been living in our current house for about a year now and have a well. When we first moved in my hair started coming out in handfuls and the hair that was left starting to turn into a serious case of dreadlocks. Don’t get me wrong, dreadlocks are cool, but I don’t happen to be in the Rastafarian mood at this moment.
After many hours, days and months of internet research, I started trying every conditioner known to man and was just shy of sleeping with a bucket of Crisco on my head. As a last resort, we called a water filtration company who came out and gave us an estimate for $5000.00 and that “MIGHT” fix our problem. Needless to say, we did not go that route.
The next time I went to the store, I picked up a couple of jugs of distilled water and put them in my shower. With my next shower, I washed my hair and then did a final rinse with the shockingly cold ass distilled water. I got out of the shower and OMGosh…. could this be true….brushed my wet hair! It couldn’t be this easy could it, after 6 months of conditioning experiments and woe. Well, it turns out that it was just that simple.
I now give my hair a little rinse with the distilled water after each wash and I am happy to be dreadlock free.
Now I don’t have to go out and buy a Rasta hat to keep my locks in and now you don’t have to either!
(although you would look smashin’ in one of those mon…lol)
