Welcome to the beginning of your journey. You came to the best site on the web to get all the info you need to grown healthy, happy dreads. The dreaducation pages at the top of the site are priceless. .. Peace
Welcome. Start off by checking out the dreaducation page. After that, look at the timeline forums to see what the first weeks/months look like. There's no speeding up your locks with severe damage to your hair. They just take time and patience.
So rule #1 for healthy locks: NEVER go to a salon.
#2: Never use wax, gels, creams, or art supplies to try and "fix" them
#3: Wash, wash and wash. 2-3 times a week is best for baby locks. Get a good non-residue shampoo and have at it.
