New tnr dreads.
I'm sad you lost patience , the natural way is such a beautiful thing to experience if you can just convince yourself to let go and stop combing( which is way easier said than done). But yea I knew SE would be all over this and he's already said it you have to keep your hair clean! not only will you stink but it will be very oily which doesnt help the dreading process at all. You want clean dry hair. I've heard alot of peoples tnr's end up falling out then dreading, then they wished they just leftem natural. I'd recommend the baking soda and vinegar rinse, you don't scrub you just pour it over your hair so your not touchin it to much. I love it
