Here is a photo of my hair at 2.5 months of neglect. The underside (mainly loose hairs, not such defined curls) are beginning to knot, but the top still hasn't (I understand I am early on in the journey). I have been separating the natural curls, for example: 2 will start curling together (this happens with many) & then I carefully separate them to an individual curl. Do you think this is hindering progress? Should I let them curl together? My concern has always been that they will end up too big. Thanks to anyone and everyone for their input..

I'm finding that Boulder County is most likely hard water. I have washed my hair 3x with Dr Bronner's (although once was in Moab, Utah), & have not had issues with filmy hair or residue (but I am only on 1.5 weeks). My sister (who is NOT dreading her hair) uses it & has no problem.
I have heard a lot about BS/ACV. What is the ratio, how do ppl like this? I have also been seeing links to Dreadlock Shampoo.com? Any ideas out there??

Okay, well I am embarking on my dready journey. I was debating doing the twist & rip method, but after a lot of research (& reading on this site especially), I have decided to go natural/neglect. My hair is course & wavy/curly. Just at my chest now... wondering how much I should expect it to shrink up with dreads.
