Today is day #4-5 of starting dreads using the neglect/natural method. Let it be understood that for four days now, I have washed every day without conditioning and haven't brushed or combed at all. Last night, I discovered a lumpy mat at the nape of my neck. So today I pulled it into two sections and did some twisting to help shape them. To help them stay separated, I then put a small plastic bead on each one, only pushing the bead up until it wouldn't go any farther--I didn't force it!
The rest of my hair has gradually been forming into pencil- and marker-sized sections on its own... No major dreading action yet, but it's closer and closer each day! But I'm very proud of my two little baby dreadlets!! HERE THEY ARE!
