i'd tnr all of it and just let it do its thing after that. but it all depends on what you really want it to look like and how patient you are :p

TnR locks will end up looking just like natural locks would, when mature. You can TnR the rest, but they'll untangle when you wash, anyway. So you may as well let the rest happen naturally.

I'm pretty sure the neglect method would lock dreads faster than Twist & Rip, since T&R goes undone.

I'm allowing my hair on the back to naturally form dreads, and it's coming along quite nicely compared to some dreads that I twist n ripped. They're not dreading as well.
I even choose backcomb instead of tnr.

That is entirely up to you,

if you have the patience go natural, let it do its thing :)

but if you want locks 'now' do TnR and let them be.

well tnr may speed the process up..you can just do a few like you've been doing and experiment and see how they come along, or you can just do it little by little whenever you're bored. that's what i did, but i always planned on doing a few and ended up going for hours, so i finished tnring all of it in like 3-4 hours :p

My hair has been dreading on the slower side...10 months neglect and not even close to half locked up yet...I did a few tnr on the bottom layer and they all came out :) I was just curious to see if it would have helped...uunfortunately no it didn't hehe if your hair holds on to some of the knots that's cool :) all up to you!

In a year or two it wont matter but its almost summer and if you plan on wearing your hair up a lot while its hot tnr might help your sections stay apart better (rather than a dread pony tail) but if you can handle your hair down or dont mind seperating you wont regret neglect. I went with neglect 51 weeks ago but I wonder how theyd look if I did use tnr.
