I'm new to the dreading process and i was just wondering if these looked good so far? i had my mom do them and she was a hair stylist but never has done dreads so any tips? thanks
One natural is the best way but it's not the fastest usually. Twist and rip will give you a great start and look good right away. Backcombing is an option but it's kind of damaging and looks kind goofy for a while then settles down whatever way you go they are the look funny for a while dreads take time can't brush them you try to wash them and you screw them all up
These are my dreads no wax has ever touch these, I just went camping and let it dread. These companies make its harder to dread so they can sell you more and more products to make it easier to dread. And each product especially with dreadheadhq which is the worst, is designed to counteract the problem another product causes. So they make one product that makes you waxy another one to make the wax feel less sticky more slimy and another to dry it out and another one to do this or that they have 20 30 tools to fix problems the other tools cause they have one tool to completely destroy your dreads at the very first signs of actual dreading. When hair dreads it loops that headquarters makes a tool to fix loops that turns every hair in your head in a tiny tiny pieces and your dreads falloff but then if you go get more you can reattach your week shredded up dreads but turning your hairs of the tinier tinier pieces they are all wrong counts yourself lucky that you found us when you did before was too late
I am not sure how long it took you to do what you have done and I know the thought of starting over sucks.You can obviously do whatever you choose but you do have the chance to start out fresh and clean now easily if you wanted to... We are all here to help! And I thought I would throw this out there. It looks like you do not have any rubberbands on which is good! You should really only use them to section your hair if thats the route you go. Rubber bands get stuck in your hair and deform your dreads. But it looks you did not leave them in.

the waxy insides of dreads pics will shock u
Sorry some of that got scrambled I don't know what happened. If you go to the to drop-down menus right under the top that the very bottom of the left one is a review of knotty boy and dreadheadhq product you will see they are all bad
Some turn out OK looking, some do not. I got lucky and my first dread journey with the small amount of wax products in my dreads did not harm their looks. But I think it did harm their health. I wont lie when I cut a few the insides were filled with lint and wax (4 years later).... Kinda gross and everything gets stuck in the wax (especially lots of lint).. Again mine were not the most awful out there but from all I have read wax actually makes the dreading process take longer. I am going wax free this time! And it so nice to have a soft fluffy head rahter then a sticky weighed down one that leaves gunk on your pillows and hands... That is my experience anyway....
They don't about 5% think that wax help because they are fooled by the illusion. Think about it wax only glues hair together, making it look like dreads. But prevents actually two so to they never actually dread they can't move. Look how they stand up. This company stay in business by scamming newbies that know nothing about dreads. They destroy dreads for profit. Less than 5% of people who use wax after four years think wax is a good idea ever wonder why most people realize it's a mistake after one use your hair cannot dread with wax and they tell you not to use any residues in soaks right as late as set they don't want you to have sent in your soak up because it could cause problems but that a study wax that is a waterproof residue I cannot be washed out it's a scam.
