I had dreads for about 11 months, back combed method. I originally bought the DreadHeadHQ stuff because I was new to the world of dreads. I decided to go against the wax, though...so I guess I saved the dreads from that fate :P So, about 11 months in, I decided to cut them...I don't really know why to be honest, they were dreading pretty well. They even started looking more natural and less man made because I didn't do anything to them after the back comb. That may be what got me to cut them though...The ends wouldn't dread at all.
So, I cut them off...then like two months after regretted it like crazy. I'm now growing my hair out to re-dread :P (my hair is still really short, but I'm trying to decide what method to go with this time around)
I would love to go with neglect, I think they are beautiful personally...but society doesn't seem to agree. I'm not so sure I could be strong and push through the beginning stages of neglect.
I'm not sure if I should go back combing again, twist and rip, or neglect. I'd love input from the dread community.
I want them back sooooo bad lol, I wish I never had cut them.
