the absolute best way to dread is just let it dread its that easy but tnr is an option thats gentle too
Hi. I've wanted dreads for years but kept dying my hair and cutting it off. Now I finally have about 6in - 8in of growth and I want to start but I want them done without harsh chemicals and waxes. I was wondering if anyone had any tips and pointers and also which method would be best for my hair. I'm mixed so I have thin/fine, soft, curly hair.
no it wont some have said wool even hurt the process but m,ost say it helps but the softness of the pillowcase shouldnt matter
Someone told me that a wool pillowcase may help baby dreads. My pillowcase now is really soft, would it possibly slow down my progress?
elipsen just leave em
britany may if u crochet every day they will be completely destroyed in a month
Just joined, I've got mostly backcombed and a couple of t n r after the dread fell out. They are very new and massively fuzzy atm, wondering best method of neatening them up and getting them to lock nicely without ruining them
Just starting out......what methode should I do with super curly and freezy hair with it's 3 inches long?
I tried backcombing and wax reluctantly, then I tried t'n'r, but I crocheted them because they looked way too wild for me. After realizing none of that works for me, I'm now trying natural. I'm about 2 months in (I haven't really kept count) My hair is really curly and thick so I figure my dreads would rock if they ever come together. I have a question though: does it look like it's at least beginning to dread?
I've wanted dreads for a while and I've finally decided that I'm going to get them. I was thinking about going to a saloon but now that I've done some research I see that's not the best idea...I've tried the neglect method but only one layer of my hair seems to do anything. I do have somewhat thin hair and I'd like to have smaller sized dreads. Any recommendations? Also another factor I am doing this completely by myself..any advice would be great so I can get started!
