Welcome. Locks are the simplest hair style. They take complete care of themselves. All that goes into growing healthy locks is washing and separating. That's it. Anything a salon or KB/DHHQ tells you to do is very damaging and only serves their purpose of making profits
Welcome and Happy Dreading.
Always, Hippie Love
Welcome. But what method did you use / plan to use?
The only things you have to do for beautiful locks is wash regularly and separate hen sections get too big or dreads grow together.
welcome how did u start yours
Welcome. There are plenty of posts here on how to grow healthy locks. Yes, most include what not to do. But there is a reason for that. While the internet is great for sharing info, there is also a LOT of bad info out there about how to grow locks.
We offer a few methods for starting locks, besides the neglect methods. We give tips on how/how often and what to wash with.
As for the"what no to do's". No one tries to say not to do something without backing up why it's bad for locks. There is almost always a VERY detailed explanation or link to a video about why some method doesn't work well.
You're right about needing to find your own method. But it doesn't hurt to take the advice of people who are going through the same process, or who have already gone through it
welcome read the dreaducation page and the reason for that is doing nothing is the best alternative
