Hello, I'm Hunter, and I've had dreads for six months now. It has definitely been one of the best decisions I've ever made, I feel as though I found the perfect way to express myself with my hair. I started with twist and rip, was fairly gentle with that process, and didn't section my hair with any precision so the sections are mostly different sizes. I actually love that each individual dread is unique to itself. My unlocked hair was straight, fine, and thin. My dreads are therefore fairly thin, but I like the look. I refuse to use wax, gel, or powders, and I take great care to research the shampoo I use. I also use residue free body wash to further prevent buildup.
I have many questions, and I think this is the perfect place to ask them. Whenever I'm able to take a good pic I'll post my dreads in the appropriate forum section. Thanks everyone, I look forward to our discussions!
