So not long ago there was a kid named Steven who wanted dreads, and like most would have he looked into it, and of course stumbled onto a site known as dreadheadhq. That kid was me.. At first I believed all the stuff Mr. Clean was saying because I, at the time, knew little to nothing about dreads. But luckily not to long ago, yesterday, I found this site and discovered how DHHQ really is before I bought any of his so called "products", but also I discovered all the great people on here and the passion they have fore dreadlocks, that I believe I have as well, and that inspired me to go 100% natural and actually grow dreads.

I've read a lot of discussions on the site already and how much knowledge I have gained in about 24 hours is amazing, I am still VERY early in my journey, so no dreads yet, but I see there is love for everyone in all stages of dreads here so I'm glad to be here!!

I will post pictures of my progress in a week or so, I'm taking SE's advice and forgetting I have hair the best I can!!

Awesome! Good luck on your journey, you made the right decision by not using those crappy products.

Thank you! I'm only on my second day and people around me already notice a difference in my hair, which is normally straight as can be.

Mine's straight as can be took a couple weeks before I could tell I stopped brushing it. I think I have a long journey ahead of me. I actually recently stopped looking in the mirror so I stop looking for progress. I'll try to look maybe once a month to see how it's going.

Welcome.  We are really accepting if not in love with every stage of locks.  I'm glad people are already noticing your changes.  You;ll go through a messy stage that'll last a little while, but everyone here has gone through it, or is going through it right now.  So don't feel worried or embarrassed.  All we want to do is create a nice little community that helps spread the word of healthy locks, and help everyone along.  Even having had locks for 6 years, I still learn new things every day.

ive had locks 22 years and still learn new things from this amazing community

oh and its nice to have our experts too  for the things im not smart enough to know what to do (but luckily i have good instinkts to fall back on when my minds not up for the challenge)

Thanks to all who have replied, I always thought growing them would take years and be a struggle like most of those other sites have said, but seeing all the people here with first hand experience with it and saying it's easy, just basically do nothing and let your hair do it's thing really helped me get to starting it! I'm sure I will have plenty of questions down the road and in a community like this, I won't be afraid to ask them either!

well we have 8000 mambers almost id guess  about 40% at least went natural so lets roughly guess 3000? now out of all those we do admittedly have a couple who are takimg a long time to dread if i had to guess 3-5 who are near or over a year and have no dreads yet

the sites only existed ..in august 9th i think wll be 3 yearsi cant think of anyone whos been around since the 1st year whos not well into mature now..there maybe 1 or 2 i just cant think of any

there have ben some i met who said they  took  a few years ..and believe me they were worth  the extra time some of the most amazing dreads took the longest times

Mine aren't amazing, but they did take over a year to start looking even remotely like locks

Unfortunately a lot if ppl fell for Johnny Cleans bad method and products! I fell for it in 2002 when I first seen it in Gypsy Rose catalog and then again in 2010 the 3 months later stumbled across this site.
