i know all hair dreads eventually, but is there hair that will take years and years and years to dread naturally? is it possible to have hair that just wont dread?because i started with backcomb and twist and rip, its been 4 months and my hair has been getting worse and worse, its gonna be completly straight and unknotted soon.i was assuming that after a few months it gets better, but its not. its really just getting worse every single day.

I'm sure there may be one person in the world that has hair that doesn't dread...But I'm sure yours will if you're doing the right thing.

Well i washg ever 3 to 4 days with baking soda/acvi use sea salt spray after my showers and let it dry on. i sleep with a wool hat on, with the hair tucked unto the hat. i dont play with my hair much but every few days i will go through them and separate each dread and if its really loose or fallen apart i will re tnr the section. maybe its horrible cause i keep tnr every section that falls apart?

yeah it seems like the tnr never stays and it just falls apart again, should i keep the bead on while i sleep? would it pull? and should i just leave the bead on for a week or 2 and see how that goes?soaringeagle said:

try this - only wash with water once a week and then only use baking soda/acv/salt water once a month.. Your hair will get really oily at first, but don't worry. Your hair should start to dread up and some days it will look like it all comes undone. It is part of the process. Once you hit the 5-6 month mark, you should notice a big difference. Stay away from the hat thing - in my experience it made things worse. I found being outside in the wind really helped things out too.Hopefully this might help... it helped in my situation. I think every person is bit different and they just have to find their groove of things.don't t&r over and over again - you will really damage your hair.

I found that Kirk's soap really helped to strip all that natural conditioner and encouraged rapid knotting. After the wash, I just used a towel to get a whole-head clockwise rubdown. I always needed to pop joining dreads after that.
