OK I know what most people are going to say to this thread and in the end I will choose what I think is best for me but I thought I would just throw this out there anyway...
I am very glad I came across this site. My first dread journey started 8 years ago and there was A LOT less info on dreading out there then. I was going to start my 2nd dread journey the same as the first and then I saw crocheting videos and thought wow never heard of that before maybe I should try it! Thankfully I found you guys first and will not be doing that. ;)
That being said I see backcombing is discouraged here for a few reasons. But I personally had a really good outcome by it. I would like my dreads to look like they did last time (you can see in my photos in their 4th year they were pretty darn nice). Can I have the same outcome by twist and rip only? WHen I did my first dreads I backcombed then twist and rip, backcomb then twist and rip etc. The twist and rip only method is very appealing to me as it seems like much less work. But it is not worth it to me in the end if I do not get the same results.
Again I know backcombing seems to be discouraged here but I LOVED my dreads and have nothing negative to say about the process besides it taking awhile!
So again I guess I am just wondering if you guys think they would look the same with twist and rip only? I am really torn on what I should do..
i mentioned the pemphugus .its a very rare condition and the dr im seeing is the worlds leading authority and the worlds leading researcher for pemphugus but thats not the point the same drs office has 1 of the worlds leading authorities on hair
so im in there talking to the dr and they insisted on bringing the hair dr (yes hes actualy a dr of hair) out to check out my dreads haha
and was the second time a dr said theyd never seen hair sio clean and healthy
he did teach me 1 thing tho well no i cant say that cause i sorta knew it he told the other dr that my hair wasnt all 1 continuouse hak=ir root to tio]ip since they were 21 years old it would be 3 peices since u sherd every hair every 7 years
(he started saying that i finnished his sentence by saying yea its every 7 years about right?) (1/2 guessing) he was impressed i knew that..lol
god ikm tired and babbling
:D It is always great when you you know something health related and the doctors look at you like, wow I never thought you would know something like that. xD I have surprised my doctors many times with some of my health knowledge. Or I have even called them out on their lies (or stupidity not sure which it was lol).
