So I started my journey three weeks ago and I must say that it isone of the best decisions I have ever made.I have absolutely no regrets and am excited to grow as a personwith my dreads. AnywaysI just want to make sure everything is looking right. I initially got my hair twisted and have only been using a homemadelocking accelerator. I recently washed my hair a few days ago and haven't been having too many issues with itching. Just wondering if i can get any extra tips on how to care for my baby dreads. Any suggestions will be appreciated! I also wanna say that I'm real excited to share and hear about everyone's experience and why they decided to dread their hair.

oh okay sounds good. i'm not even gonna think about getting my hair retwisted until the end of the month and i may wait even longer than that if i actually do get them retwisted.

haha yeah i actually used to braid my hair before this. and in the accelerator i just have sea salt and water. and i will make sure to wash my hair weekly. i just washed it on friday so i will wait until this upcoming friday to do it again. i haven't wanted to wash it too much though because i'm scared some of em will come out. but i will definitely make sure to not retwist my hair and let it be.and again i do appreciate the helpful advice! i want to make sure i do this the right way and that my hair doesn't get damaged or anything like that

u shouldnt..at all..ever

in featured vids theres 1 called retwisting interlocking retightening dread roots dangers the thing is if u force the roots to be too tight u cause traction alopecia

u already have that to a minor degree if u force the roots to be tight it will get worse every month and evebtualy your 3/4 bald

the roots should e left alone and never ever twisted
