Hi there,

I would really like dreads but i currently have really short, dyed hair (less than 1 inch at the back, longer at the front).. I was wondering.. while I am growing out my hair can I start the natural process of no conditioning, or brushing? or do I have to wait til it is long (this may take 2 or 3 yrs...!) also, I am not sure what to do about the dye (i'm naturally blonde but have used permanent black dye...) will my hair look OK if i start the process, or will it just look like an awful mess?
Thanks :-)

About your hair being dyed, I had dyed mine about 6 months before and I think it looks fine. Lol about half of my hair is black and half is my natural brown, but it's not that bad. A lot of people have said it looks cool. When it gets longer you can cut the dyed part off and it should stay locked. Even it it doesn't it'll lock back up in time.

 

And I'd definitely agree with Soaring Eagle on the biotin. My hair naturally grows really fast and I started taking biotin and it doubled. It takes a while of daily use before it works, but when it works it works. Good luck on your dread journey, it's a fun one

Beads also help a lot. Once you've got a decent dread started, pop a bead on and after a while you'll notice that it's a bit tighter
