Starting dreads again

2012-04-05

Posted in:

Hey all,

I used to have dreads about 2 years ago. I kept them for around 5 months, went to a salon to have them done and the girl used the backcombing method and that was it. I hadn't done much research at the time, so the only thing I did in those 8 months to maintain them was go to the beach and "wash" them in salt water. This is what they looked like after 5 months. I ended up combing them out (which took 16 hours), but it goes to show you how loose they were.

I'm wanting them again, but this time for the long-haul and I'm wondering what the best method would be for my coarse/very thick/very curly hair. This time I won't be going to a salon. I would like to do them on my own. I moved to Colorado Springs and don't know anyone who would be able to help me, so I would like to do them with a method that requires no help from others. Also, I have a baby so I won't be able to dedicate several hours at a time. I'm thinking I'm going to have to do them one at a time (even if it takes months). I'm just not sure the "neglect/natural" method would be the right way for me since I never brush my curls out and in all this time, no dreads have appeared. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

thanks! yeah i totally didn't even think about finger combing...i do that without thinking, so that's probably the main reason. i was thinking tnr. do you have any good video suggestions? i'm not quite sure how to do to it and all i seem to find on youtube are very terrible explanations.
