    Day 38

    wait till you get in to your 3rd or 4th month... then you will know what the joint pain thing is all about... its early days....in fact i hope you dont get it because no one deserves that kind of pain but if you do you will understand what othera are going through....i got it and still do but i just bare with it because if it means i will not be spotty any more then bring on the pain...good luck!

I have long medium thickness hair.... I didnt need to wash it but fealt it would have been really dirty if i didnt but my hair wasnt actually dirty... it still looked good!!!!! LOL
