so its been awhile since ive been here and looking to start dreading just not sure how to go about it
Simply stop preventing it from dreading.
switch to a dread shampoo www.dreadlockshampoo.com Is by fear best
liquid for all hair types except African, at least till dreaded then bars.. bars for African hair from the start
liquids going to dry your hair make it knot fast but too drying for African type hair.
Stop combing stop wearing hats. If you want to total freeeform.. thats it, but might end up with crazy huge dreads..
so semi freeform as it startes to dread separate so none are larger then 1 inch sections AT THE SCALP or you dont have any joining togetner to become too big
its best to separate the 1st year or 2 then if you want thicker let some combine, rather then let them combine and be thick early only to find they end up twice as thick as expected.
