I've had back combed and twist n ripped locks a few times each. Honestly, going from smooth hair straight to dreads wasn't my cup of tea because I was suddenly uncomfortable when I slept and I wasn't used to the feeling of them. I am a mom of 2 and I am too lazy to spend 30 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at night combing the knots out of my hair.
So, I threw away my comb 2 days ago and I bought Dr. Bronner's Lavender soap because a friend of mine started her natural journey a month or two ago and she has the same hair type that I do, she already has a few beautiful baby locks.
Just a few common questions, I'm sure they have been asked a million times before...:
- What are the dos and donts of going for natural dreads?
- How much should I dilute my Dr. Bronner's?
- Can I still tie my hair up with hair ties during the process?
Any tips and advice in general??
I live 10 minutes away from USA's #1 beach, so I will be in the salt water A LOT this summer, which I hear is fantastic for dreads
