theres no methods needed..you don't have to "get dreads" just grow dreadlocks
dreadlocks are your hairs natural state.. all hair wants to be dreadlocks it tries to be every day and theres a billion dollar industry just in preventing hair from dreading
the only method besides natural that's even worth considering for you would be twist and rip
but read the dreaducation page it covers the good and bad of all methods
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 9 feet long
i think soaring eagle answered your other post - try to get some dreadlocks shampoo and wash every 4-5 days without rubbing it all apart. He recommends scrubbing at your scalp and not using a towel. Can you post some pictures? The people I've heard using salt water or ocean swimming seem to get good outcomes. How long is your hair? Mine is only 4-5 inches, maybe 6 in the back.

Your hair is beautiful! I actually kind of love it the way it is. As you can probably tell, the dreads start forming at the ends, and sort of work their way up,as the hair grows into them. You will probably see your hair start to "shrink." Search here for some "baby dreads" photos and you'll see what happens. I like the look of the loose locks anyway, and yours will look great that way. It's hard not to pull or twist at them, but that's part of the process. Could take months/years.
