the first time i decided to dread my hair i did a little Twist N Rip and after 2 weeks decided i didnt like it because i felt some sort of guilt for not letting my hair naturally section itself, especially because i wanted to do the dreads as a spiritual journey. i combed them out and decided to go natural process. after one month im finally getting sections of my hair that are beginning to dread and i totally understand why people choose naturally dreading as opposed to any other way. the day to day progress is amazing to watch and everytime i notice a new section dreading or a section tightening up i get so excited! the process is a journey of patience for me due to the fact that i would say patience is one of my biggest weaknesses. its also neat to see how fast its dreading, i have straight hair but its a little on the thicker side and its only 7-8 inches long. these little dreads have some crazy personality and i feel like each one of them is an extension of me and my being. im loving this mane of hair with its craziness also, like i said it just feels right, like this is how it all should be you know. this website has helped a lot especially with advice and the different testimonials of sorts. glad to finally be a part of this community. natural dreads all the way.
