Hello! I'm new to this forum and also to dreading. I'm actually in the process of "training" my scalp by spacing out the days in between washing my hair and not using conditioner. I've been researching dreading methods like mad and as of right now I think we're going to use the crocheting method for the dreads as I read that it works really well. But then it seems like most the information I find on other sites has to deal with backcombing which I am also considering using. Could anyone lend me some advice or personal experience with what may work the best. I have super curly hair that is about 11-12 inches long or so, sorry for no pic yet but will come.. Also I am still on the fence over whether or not to use wax... any advice in that area also? I'm still trying to figure this forum thing out so if there is somewhere on this site that talks about those things it would be great to find it! I'm still looking Peace.
