Hi Lexie, welcome to the community. You came to the right place to learn all about dreadlocks and the methods before you start any. Dreadlocks are beautiful, I can see why you love them. If you have any questions, do ask us, we want you to be sure about everything before you start. Many of us here have used the twist & rip method, I did. I have a posting about what to expect when doing T&R, my tip for that one is to make sure you do not do them too tight, and to let your hair separate into sections naturally first, then use those for the T&R. Sure, neglect method is best, then T&R, then backcombing (which does cause some damage due to teasing the hair up towards the scalp). Do all your research first, and ask ask ask.....peace

Welcome. Check out the dreaducation page before you pick a method. Then take a look through the timeline forums.

The neglect method is always the safest, healthiest and most rewarding. But not everyone is ready to give it all up and let their hair go. That's fine. Then you could go the TnR method. It's not as harmful as back combing, and does the same job.

Be aware, though, that if you use a starter method, it doesn't create locks. It only creates a blueprint for where you want your sections to be. Your hair will unravel, retangle, over and over again for about 4-8 months. This is normal and healthy. Let it happen
