Hello. I'm new. ^_^
I've been thinking alot about getting dreads and have been prepping myself for this change. I know some people may not see this as a big deal, but in my eyes it is. It will be a big change and I want this to be a good step forward into a new chapter in my life.
I'm planning on starting mine in the next week or so. and I had a couple of questions.
My hair is about to my lower back, so i know its gonna take a little longer to do, buut i'm planning to do the twist and rip technique. Now, I'm latina and my hair is thick and pretty kinky.curly. I was just wondering if i do more of a thinner dread, if some of that curl will still be there. If anyone knows, let me know.
also, i WAS going to waste my non-existant monies and buy the products from dreadhead or some salon, but now that i've read through the site, i'm glad i decided to do one last info check. lol. But i was wondering, i did keep seeing some people mentioning using a salt/water spary mixture. Would that work/be beneficial with the twist and rip method of do i just not really worry about that.
I'm really hoping that once i get these babies going that they will look good. My plan is to just do the back of my head and keep the front part (the chunks that frame my face) loose from the rest. I do modeling and that way that can kinda create an illusion of curl if thats what the photo is looking for.
anyway. Thats my into. ^_^ I'm glad i stumbled across this site and look forward to meeting others who dont think that being dreaded is being a dirty hippie.
