I'm new to this site but have been lurking it for a few weeks now.
Last week i began my Dreads journey via natural.
At this point i've washed it twice with BS/water and during the day at home i wear a hemp tam.
at work though i keep it tucked under a large knit cap, to prevent oil or anything getting into my hair and forcing another wash.
right now i am seeing my hair begin to twist and just look fuzzy. no worries for me i know that's the process, thanks to the info I've gathered here.
at the nape and back of my head is really getting there fast too in my opinion.I did a few TNR but thought it was a little silly looking and gaudy on me so i undid them and am now letting them do what they want.
I sleep on a wool blanket occasionally to just speed things up, but i'm not in that much of a hurry. I guess because at a slower pace i can control and be aware of their condition and separate if needed.
I suppose that's it for that, I'm glad i found this site and am now in a situation where i can actually get dreads. I've wanted them for many years but always something standing in my way.
I'm not really sure why i wanted them, I was just drawn to them and loved the whole religious, spiritual aspect behind them. I myself follow Buddhism; not that it matters but hey...better late than never, and boy oh boy am i excited.
