~~I Fell Victim to Dreadheadhq~~

I was an idiot and used the backcombing and palm rolling methods, whichpermanently damaged my hair.

After my first post on this forum,Barrellady along with soaringeagleboth strongly advised that I undo the backcombing (using conditioner) and use the neglect/free-form method. After undoing every single knot, my hair was one big frizzball of damaged hair. I then continued to brush the knots out and then lastly applied curly-hair conditioner to at least save the damage that has been done.I thank you both for this support.

Now that the knots are all out, I plan on starting the "Natural" method! As you can see, my hair looks short, but it's curly, so at it's longest it's about 6-7 inches. Wish me luck! Peace & love to all.

Well, no luck needed, look at that curly hair. Before you know it, you will have dreads forming all over your head, happy healthy dreads. They won't be sticking up, won't be damaged, just awesome wicked dreadlocks. Good for you, enjoy your maintenance free journey (except for separating the sections). ...peace
