Brand New to Dreading

2013-07-07

Posted in:

Hello everybody. I am brand new to the dread community here and would like to introduce myself: I am a curly-haired man and am very excited to start my journey. I already backcombed 10 dreads on the side of my head tonight. The dreads seem very loose and tend to undo themselves. Any advice on how to stop this from happening, or how to tighten up the locks quicker? I heard palm rolling with salt helps them lock up. Right now I love the way my curly hair expresses itself in dreads! ...Excuse the ridiculous look, these are brand new, baby dreads! Will these undo as I sleep? Any quicker locking methods?

Thank you

-M

Thank you! I will try that method. I wish I'd known this earlier, taking these backcombs out are difficult! lol

With curly hair, the neglect / free form method is the best. That means you do nothing! You wash 2-3 times a week and let the hair section naturally, all by itself. It will start to form dreadlocks all by itself. Truly an amazing journey....peace

So after I comb out the back-combed strands, what method do you recommend? I'm confused.

stop thinking faster is better in the case of dreads the more u rush them the worse they are u can simply stop combing and that hair will dread itself thats the best way by far

do not palm roll

1 it does nothing

2 it does permenant harm

sea salt as a spray (same salinity aas ocean water) does speed it a lil

but with your hair

comb out the backcombed stop combing it will dread itself real fast and healthy as canb-n be
