New in dreadlocks and ive already read many topics, im confused so i need help.


Introduce Yourself

I have exactly the same hair. It's wavy/curly and super frizzy. I started mine about three weeks ago. I sectioned them off and used the twist and rip method. Then left them to do what they wanted. They didn't what to go in the direction I thought they should.

I highly suggest not brushing your hair for a few to several days while washing with a good, natural, non-residue shampoo (I got my Naked Dreadlock Shampoo Bar at Dreadlock Shampoo). My hair would have taken so much longer to begin sectioning together how it wants to if I hadn't had super clean hair. It's only $10 and there's a bunch of different liquid and bars and a non-residue locking gel.

Wash every two to three days. Just not every day. When you shampoo, pay special attention to the places you know get more oily than other places. If your hair is greasy it's going to take sooooo much longer for the knots to hold when they get wet. I also use a sea salt and water spray and do a baking SODA and apple cider vinegar rinse once a week. Also, make sure that you get into the areas of the hair between each dread on each side. Rinse with cool, then blast with cold for a second.

All the info I know I got from wandering around here. Check out the links in the top right hand side drop down list. Just read up! Wait, too! It takes time! Mine aren't even really good looking yet, but I love them so much. It's so much easier and it's another outlet in which I can express myself in. Hope I could help a bit! Have fun in your dread journey!
