How long have you been dreading?
Have been putting dreadlocks in for friends for 6 years
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Am currently working on my own dreadlocks...started a couple weeks ago...using a crochet hock, wax and comb...re searching on best method...still have a lot to do...loving it though :-)
Have been on here nearly a week and thank goodness i found this site after having only a few dreadys done...thanx to some GREAT advise i am now using th twist and rip method on most of them...the bak is dreading up naturaly...I am loving this so much and feel like im finding a part of myself...my truth. <3
Hey hey there you two lovely peoples.... Thank you so soooo much for your advise, yea I wasn't to keen on putting wax in my hair to be honest... Have done quiet a few using the TNR process and LOOOOVE it.... Appreciate your advise so much. What a great web site this is. Love peace n blessings Loki xxx
I also suggest you don't use wax or crochet. Wax holds up the knotting process and puts gunk in your hair that's hell to get out later. Crochet breaks hairs and weakens the dreads. You don't want your cherished dreads to break off, ever. The Dreaducation link on this site explains it all in more detail.
I thought my straight hair would never knot up without products and processes, but after six months of not combing my dreads are forming well. Other people take a longer or shorter time. Try TnR. It didn't work for me but works well for others. What I like about natural dreadlocks is that they form organically, are strong and beautiful and a clear reflection of the person's inner spirit.
Look around, ask us questions. Love to hear and see more of you! :)
hey girl, just a tip, FORGET THE WAX! nothing but bad news. hooks aren't that great either... if you're looking for quick locking try the twist and rip method. it's the safest and easiest on your hair. i think you'd be pleased. look up a member, lauren halsall. i believe she made hers using the twist and rip method and they look incredible. peace and blessings!
