My name is Cindy. I just recently decided to actually go through with the idea of dreading my hair. I'm very new to it, though many of my friends have dreads. I could really use a few tips!
For one, I have really straight hair. My hair hasn't always been thin, but I've had a horrible habit of wearing a hat at all parts of waking hours for like 4 years now. I decided to start the neglect method about three weeks ago. I only wash my hair every three days and use Dr. Bronner's, nothing else. Though I can see where my hair wants to section off by the third day of not washing, once I was it, it becomes very straight, frizzy and completely tangle-less again. But it looks messy. Because of the frizziness, I end up wearing my hat all the time because it's not really an acceptable look in the work setting. Though I think my hat is ruining the process of the neglect method.
Does anyone have any suggestions? And I look forward to being here!!
