Hello! I've been lurking the forums for a while and, finally decided to join in the discussion!As with everyone, I've got a story to tell. I have fairly short hair at the moment (2 1/2 - 3 inches) very thick, and very smooth. Like everyone else I wanted my dreads quick, so I had a friend section out my hair and back combed it, after all the sections had been backcombed, I washed with baking soda, and half of them came right out. I still had a few that were nice and tight so I left them alone and started twist and ripping the parts that came out. After awhile I realized that the backcombed dreads and the twist and rip dreads looked nothing alike, so I started back combing again, I now look like side show bob.so I'll start my journey at dreadlockssite.com with a question, should I just condition them out and try again? if so about at what length will neglect begin to take effect?as a side note no wax, and haven't tried the apple cider vinegar soak yet.
