Hi all! So I am BRAND NEW!!! I have read through many of your posts already - and I feel like I kind of know some of you. My hair is about 30" long...and super fine. I did some backcombing last weekend - NO WAX. I palm rolled a tiny bit, too. I think I spent about 6 hours on my whole head - so not much time really - considering my length. I have elastics in at the roots (which keep breaking). I am going to be completely natural from this point forward (no more comb). I have washed once. I have pretty tangled (from the comb) hair at the ends - maybe halfway up. From root to halfway down - I am pretty straight and not dreaded. I am content to leave well enough alone from here on out. I am just wondering if anyone here has any suggestions for me.Should I try to undo everything and start naturally? I am not sure how it would go - as I am really tangled at the ends.Can I just keep going from here? I really love what I have so far. Plenty frizzy and unkept looking right now...but that is fine with me.I am so glad that I did not wax....my gut feeling was so right.Some background...my hair will dread into one BIG congo (appearntly - that is what it is called) after about 2 weeks of washing, no brush, no comb, no seperating. I typically wash (prior to dreading) about 2 times/week. I rarely brush/comb. Maybe 2-3/month. I have always super conditioned, though. Up to about 3 days before I backcombed - serious conditioner - natural - but heavy amounts.I guess the biggest thing for me is this - I am certain about dreading - I have known for years that I would eventually. I just want to make sure that I did not begin wrong - and I do not want to regret it later.Some Pics!
Peace to Everyone!
