My name is Robert, I am 20 and I live in corpus Christi Texas ( the tip of Texas that goes in the gulf of Mexico). I have used the site quite a lot but decided to wait till I got my second set going. I had started dreading awhile back but started over bcuz I didnt like the way it was started (wax). I just started and finished my second set today(9-03-11) THANKS to the help of my mom.

I have wanted dreads for a really long time bcuz my hair is sooo ridiculous to do anything else. I have like 10 cow licks on random spots that make my hair go all crazy. Plus i was a scar magnet as a kid so short hair is a no go. I love not doing anything with my hair besides cleaning it bcuz i am uber lazy. I love the freeness and wild and crazyness.

I decided to go the waxless route this time and just try back combing and RnT on some. I am still learning as I go so im excited to see what will happen with my new dreads. I am open to any ideas on how to maintain and clean them. I know the basics but can never learn enough.... Although im not a fan of the picks here is a pic of how they look after a couple hours.

love the site, SE you saved my first set.

lol that is so what mine looked like after backcombing them. My parents called me a palm tree for the next few days. I'm sure you'll find all the suggestion and advice you can possibly want though

Welcome to the site Robert! Good luck with your dread journey. Moms are the best for helping too : ) and it sounds like you have a good one! If you have any questions feel free to ask. I did TnR 25 days ago so I'm new to it too.
