dreading methods

there are many ways to make dreadlocks and one way to grow dreads. natural dreads form on over time without much effort. there are newer methods to create dreads, these all have advantages and disadvantages.


dreading methods include:

natural/neglect - just stop combing

twist and rip-twist hair separate pull repeat

backcomb-comb the hair backwards towards the scalp

twist and neglect-great for african hair just twist then let it do its thing

crochet-use a crochet hook to weave hairs together

dread perm-use harsh chemicals to change the hair texture

salon dreads-pay someone else to mess up your head

johnny clean methodinstant dreads premature dread death

felting dreads complete and utter destruction of every hair in order to create instant dreads this method is being recommended by dreadheadhq to "fix dreads" using the "dread docta" which is just a felting needle.

Hi. I've wanted dreads for years but kept dying my hair and cutting it off. Now I finally have about 6in - 8in of growth and I want to start but I want them done without harsh chemicals and waxes. I was wondering if anyone had any tips and pointers and also which method would be best for my hair. I'm mixed so I have thin/fine, soft, curly hair.

Someone told me that a wool pillowcase may help baby dreads. My pillowcase now is really soft, would it possibly slow down my progress?

Just joined, I've got mostly backcombed and a couple of t n r after the dread fell out. They are very new and massively fuzzy atm, wondering best method of neatening them up and getting them to lock nicely without ruining them

I just started dreading. I'm doing the twist a rip method. I heard that crocheting them almost everyday for about 3 months will help them form.. Should I twist and rip and do nothing and let them form on their own or crochet as well?

I tried backcombing and wax reluctantly, then I tried t'n'r, but I crocheted them because they looked way too wild for me. After realizing none of that works for me, I'm now trying natural. I'm about 2 months in (I haven't really kept count) My hair is really curly and thick so I figure my dreads would rock if they ever come together. I have a question though: does it look like it's at least beginning to dread?
