Natural dread timeline.

By: oostan heimach
Posted in:

Before starting my dread journey i was skeptical,

but exited to expiriment with the natural method of dreading.

so heres a rough timeline from day 1..


i have very fine straight hair.After my first baking soda wash with 1/3 cup baking soda and about 5 shots sea saltit came out a little textured..


I was suprised at how quickly it joined into sections..

so i decided to learn to crochet tams to help the knotting.

after about 1 month of repeating that simple wash every other day or so..

1 may

i back combed that one before finding dreadlockssite.after about two months of the same wash and some extra love i start to see somereal sections forming.

2 June

ponytail gets thicker and hair begins to curl/frizz into sections.

it was amazing how fast it thickened up justby kicking the comb..lots of loose hairs still but that is thebeauty of the natural process your dreads choose there roots sections for comfort and health and individuality..

3 july

sections are defining themselves and forming loops and locing up a bit..

4 August

5 September

6 October

great timeline bro. i am still growing out my hair, but am going to start "neglecting" soon. what did you do as far as regular washing/care? also, did the tam help out?

This is awesome! I recently started mine using backcombing, but now I kind of wish I had just let them form themselves. Your hair looks really cool. It has lots of character (:
