New to dreads, read alot mine look hopeless (To me) and feel down about it.
Help! Save My Dreads
looks like they literally just twisted your hair with wax - maybe with more textured hair this could work, but it looks like you went to a salon that does not specialise in dreadlocks - ESPECIALLY dreadlocks for people with thin, silky hair. I'm afraid to ask what you paid for that, as I know that salon's charge a hefty price for making dreads. The sectioning doesn't even look professional, tbh. You would have been better off having a friend do it for you but I highly recommend Wax B Gone - ing that shit out , combing your hair and washing it with a dread shampoo (bar soap is for more mature dreads) and then allowing your hair to naturally section - which gives a much fuller, more even and organic look, and then use whatever method at that point- for some, complete sectioning can take weeks, but for me, it was pretty much instantaneous after I got out of the shower and let my hair dry. Just don't finger comb your hair or scrub your hands through your hair, just scratch and soap up your scalp and let it rinse through, squeezing your hair like a sponge repeatedly til it's all rinsed, and then separate regularly while wet to keep sectioning from congoing. Very simple, very cheap.
