Oh well thanks!
Well then I'm not going with backcomb for sure hehe!
And yes I agree that natural are better then any other methods but I really cant so i guess Twist & Rip is the way to go.. And are the noticeable "appearance" differences between T&R / Natural / Backcomb when they're mature??
No matter what you do, dreadlocks will take time to look legit. I understand how you're thinking now with wanting them to look a certain way without so much of the wait, but if you are serious about wanting dreads you must be serious about taking time for them to mature. This could take a very long time, or only weeks.
I started with TnR. It was a complete waste of time (in my opinion) because they all ended up falling out anyway. I went neglect and I absolutely love them, they are still maturing and I'm going on 2 1/2 years now, I still have some loose hairs but you can more or less tell what kind of hair i'm sporting.
All methods will end up getting loopy, frizzy, loose, clumpy and all-out crazy at some point in their process. I've seen backcomb dreads that look crazier in the maturing process than neglect. Same with TnR. It depends on your hair "temperment" lol
As far as the overall look goes, I'm not a pro but in my opinion the way your dreads end up maturing overall doesn't depend much on the method you choose as long as we are still talking about a product, wax-free situation. If you look up pictures of mature clean dreads (and by "clean" I mean wax and product free) they generally end up looking similar. The only thing you should be concerned about is size, because I've noticed that a lot of the time with TnR or backcomb methods, the end result dreads have a tendancy to be larger than people intended them to be because they don't factor in how much the dreads get fatter as they mature. An example of this: Whenever I started with TnR, I had 24 dreads. After they fell out and I neglected them, I have over 55.
Also, neglect is way cuter. Instead of going through awkward "fuzzy dreads" stage you get adorable bedhead. Just sayin'.
