Hi Everyone! I made a post about my dreadlocks (crochet) last year. And I did brush them out, which I think was the right thing to do. I have now been during the Neglect Method for 3 months and I feel great. This is truly the BEST way to go, no doubt about it. If you are on a spiritual journey to find yourself, throw your brush away, honestly. You will find yourself. It is truly an amazing feeling. I feel alive finally. This is what I've needed, all these years. The Egyptians believed that energy flowed out of their body through their hair, so they would let their hair begin to knot up. This caused the energy to stay within them because their hair kept it from flowing out. That story is so special to me and it is one of the reasons I wanted dreads in the first place. To conclude, if you are someone who wants to become one with nature, obtain peace and harmony, truly discover yourself, and feel positive about life then I strongly recommend this method and hairstyle. It's so important to me and my hair is my one true love and I see it grow more and more everyday. Plus, dreadlocks are like the sexiest things ever, who wouldn't want them? Peace Love and Weed my fellow hippies.
