Your dreads are amazing, so I'll take your word for it and toss the hook, after reading a bit more about it on the site I am glad I only ever did it once! :)

Do you have any suggestions for keeping them neat for work?

Thanks, well i was considering combing them out because I was starting to notice a frizzy-fuzzy lint type build up at the roots of my locs. I think it was due to the linings in the hospital, I was there for 3 weeks but i did a super hot water soak and some aloe and squeezed each individual loc and the gunk came out. so I've been doing that and its helped.

Thanks for the welcome, I'm loving this site already.

I so would love to go the neglect route but unfortunately I have to participate as a wage slave to generate an illusion so I can continue to seek what is truly real.

The other issue I have is that most girls would kill for my hair as it is naturally silky and straight, so it can take quite a while for them to take. The last time I had them I had previously had my hair braided for quite a while.

Oh my.. now I'm a lil worried I was never aware that beeswax was considered worse than normal wax.. Thats all  i used in the beggining thinking the more natural route would be the best route, eek, well then , how much does this fancy stuff sell for?

I was unaware of such a waxremoval method , or a method at all really lol, how is it done?

Yeah, I had a loop, but I had to admit I crochet it so now it has gone.. now it's just like a regular dread, but yes, it's really tight... and I have some loops in the rest of my dreads but I won't crochet any of them and leave them just as you told me.. a friend of mine who also has dreads (8 years by now) has offered me some essential oils, like coconout or  lavender, is that good? how should I use them? thanks again!

That's simply awesome to hear! My dread journey is going to begin a lot sooner than I thought! 

You'll be the first to know when I start them officially! Thank you!

Only two more inches (possibly?) sounds promising! That's for the natural dreads right? Also good to know about the wool, it was starting to worry me!

I am also taking Biotin (good old vitamin K), it was excessively difficult to find one that was in a non gelatin capsule!

Thanks!

Thanks SE, I appreciate your welcome and comment! I just have one question though. As you can see in my profile picture (taken about 2 weeks ago), my hair isn't exactly the longest, about when should I stop brushing it and actually expect it to lock up? I can't find a ruler at the moment, but i'm more than sure my hair is around 4 inches in lenght.

Also about the natural process, I had a question about that... I'm Vegan so the concept of using wool (as a pillow case and a hat) seems rather "unnatural" to me. Is it necessary to use such methods to start the locking process or is it just to "help". Because if it comes down to it, I really wouldn't mind back combing them (I'm well aware of the products to use and avoid).

Cheers.

Thanks for the welcome, and I actually think my crochet dread has progressed faster than my twist and rip dreads.

I have washed and retwisted three times since starting my journey. I know I'm not washing nearly enough. Buty dreads are all ended up after I do a full wash. So I use BBs shampo spray regularly/ twice a week

Yeah the dreads in the back of a bald head is not a good look : ) I'll invest in that vegan goodness for my hair too. Can I just ask, should I be doing anything in terms of maintenance? I mean, not going to the salon, I don't care for the scalp to be showing, I just want 'tidy' dreads I can wear to work or school, and I say tidy in the loosest form of the word.

nothing stays free...look at water, t ofind good clean uncontaminated water today is getting harder and harder, while a bottle of treated and shipped water is a dollar....we have to legislate and fight to keep our basic rights...even free speech is becoming less free than it used to be before I was born and when I was young....but the good things in life should be free.

Thanks for the welcome! Unfortunately some wax...but that's why I'm here now, to re-educate myself and learn better ways of doing things, I'll scour the forums in the next couple of weeks to get broad ideas...what do you recommend for washing and retwisting? I also love the little question about whether I'm a spammer and dumb enough to admit it, that made me lol.
