I introduced myself before but for those that do not know, my name is Heather.
I have had my dreads for "three weeks". I began with a backcombing, twist/rip, and crochet method. The dreads looked great at first, but then there were knots and thing spots, the sizes were too small or too big, I was having to cut certain spots of my hair from knots... etc.
So a few days ago, I took out all but three of my dreads (I kept three I made that day because they looked and felt correct). I kept my hair really poofy and thick and after they were all out I did the baking soda wash I found on this website.
As soon as I did the baking soda wash, I towel dried my hair, and blew dry to make sure it was completely dry. OH MY GOD.
My head looks and FEELS so much better, it has already started a fast natural dread that looks a lot better.
I am very glad I joined this website as soon as I did. This has really enhanced my dreadlock journey. I am now a VERY strong advocate to the all natural method and I just started two days ago.
Attached are before, during, and after wash pictures so you can compare the difference!
