hey! i want to get dreadlocks but am unsure of which method i should use - natural or twist and rip. i want to get them before schools starts again and they should look acceptable for shcool. i dont want to damage my hair and but im not sure about how to start using the natural method. any advice?

also, a question. when u r only starting out with dreadlocks, how do u washed them so they dont fall apart and how often? do u just use the baking soda like usual?

thank you :)

you can use the baking soda thopugh it might vbe too drying for your hair dreadlockshampoo.com might be better choice but u can tery and see

a wool tams helful but not nesacary

step 1 through your comb and all products in the trash

step 2..wait..(if going natural) or tnr or twist or comb coil (all unesacary only stopping combing is needed)

step 3 as hair sections itself and begins to dread seperate any that are too thick or any that try to join together

thats it

its super simple
