Dreading Methods

last month i considered doing some of the most damaging methods to start dreading (without knowing), look at me now, going all natural, when you guys would tell me " go natural its the best method", i was like, "pff, like i'm ever gonna that", until i actually gave it a try. i wash my hair once every 3 days using an anti-residue shampoo (neutrogena)3rd pic is the back of my head, incase you're wondering, ( im worst at taking pictures)check them out, what do you guys think?

okay guys, i've decided to go all natural. it's been 2 days since i haven't washed my hair. (pretty long huh?)couple of questions though1. about beanies, some say it does no good at all, others say wear it at night, what does it accomplish by wearing one at night? or it just helps the hair less frizzy looking2. does massive sweating affect the dreading process, i sweat very much when jogging to where my hair looks like i just got out the shower.Thanks everyone for you advice

oops, i didn't realize you commented back, sorry. okay so i've came up with a new plan, instead of waiting till after graduation, i've narrowed it down to november-december. and before i start the process of t&r around that time, im wanting to go through a "going all natural" period because.... if i dnt comb my hair for a day it really tangles up, i also jogg and after jogging my hair is soaked in sweat and i dnt how or why but when my hair dries up (of the sweat) it becomes really really tangled, and yes im taking monthly pics and im hoping to make a vid by next year, once i have my bebe dreads

I really don't want to it the natural way, I'm not talking bad about it but wouldn't like to see my hair all messy and I've heard/read it takes months even years to get good looking dreads if done all natural. You might say "well dreads do take months and patience to get them", but (i believe) if done the t&r method, it atleast looks a little more developed, i hope i explained myself right.GreyGargoyle said:
I think that you should take things a little more slowly. You were deciding to do some of the worst and most damage things to your hair to get dreadlocks and now you've decided to go with T&R...good choice! But I think you should slow down a bit and look things over. Now I'm not going to try to change your mind about T&R because that is a good way to go. A ton better than what you wanted to do at first. But you could go natural right after graduation and your dreads could represent you forming your own life. Sorta like what I did. I decided that the day that I moved out I was gonna dread and that was one of the top ten best decisions of my life. Haha. But if you do not want to go with my suggestion then you could do the T&R after grad. and instead of making a decision to palm roll or any other damaging or useless techniques you could give your hair time to dread and THEN decide. I feel like it's important to give the natural method a try before jumping in and saying, oh, I want to do this, this and this to get my hair to become awesome locks. It doesn't work that way. Even with T&R you have to build a lot of patience and commitment and maybe even more so than with natural because some if not most of the T&R job is likely to fall apart. Just think about it. You may change your mind. Natural dreading is very enlightening and it can change you, enlighten you and make you think differently about life and that is why I say wait till Graduation to decide on what the method to madness will be. Natural dreading right after HS or some other big occasion in life is a great way to learn about yourself. Good luck to ya, bud.

Thanks everyone for your feed back. I've been exploring the site a bit more and learned about the twist and rip method, so I'm definitely going to do that. (thanks spaceman for link)I will NOT do the backcombing/crochet method, maybe palm rolling though. I don't want to do it the natural way, rather t&r.Again thanks

Soaringeagle,so if crochet/palmroll/backcomb isnt a good method, what is?also, how is twist and rip done?Island,when you say by going natural means not combing/messing with my hair right?and I'd want to wait till my hair is longer to dread, or do you think it's long enough?

I don't have dreads now but each day that goes by i want them badly. My hair is currently a little over 6 inches long and it's wavy. My plan is to get dreads once I graduate since this following year im a senior, I'm going to wait after graduation because I dnt want to go thru the process during the school year. After doing some research about starting, I'm going to do the backcombing/palmrolling/crochet thing, but NO wax at all. I know there's more to that than I know but that's where you guys come in. One BIGquestion that I have is, does it matter if I have dry/damaged hair when starting the lock process? I'm going to get the dry/dam. hair trimmed today but I dnt want to cause it means my hair will be shorter, sooo does it matter, should I just ignore it and let my continue to grow, or not? Well this is it for now, I'm new here so hello everyone!
