I just stared dreads two days ago with the backcomb and palm roll method. Took pretty much all day, but it was well worth it. Here are the pics from right after the dreading:http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a131/killerfroggy/2012-01-28_23-44-48_225.jpg

My head is itchy as hell right now and I read around here that I shouldn't follow the common thought of waiting 2 weeks to wash. I have some Organic Root Stimulator Uplifting Shampoo, but I was wondering if I ws them this early will they loosen up forcing me to start all over or can I wash and just let them do their thing (possibly with some pal rolling?)

THANKS!

adfrican salons know nothing about caucassian dreads so twist the hair in gel then bake it in this will not work in your hair at all

if they were backcombed its fine as long as the gels removed

Yea. I had a friend do them in my living room, I only got the product from the salon (Sally's to be exact), so it was done with backcombing and his experience with doing dreads. I should've just avoided the gel all together.

I appreciate all the help. I want to get the done for Burning Man in August, so I really want to take care of them and have them turn out well.

Redditor! I'm glad you followed the link. Stay away from the products and you will have awesome long lasting dreads.

Holy crap, it's like looking into a mirror.

So... get the product out, like every one saids before. Next, it will probably loosen what you've got, if not end up taking them completely out. It's probably better and easier to just take them out. Back combing is not the best for your hair, but nor terrible. You could mix it with some TnR. The palm rolling wont help though. I have a few that I palm rolled. Most of them either came out after the first wash, or the palm rolling loosened at least.

It's a 1 step forward 2 steps back process for a while. Burning man's not till August, so even if you went completely neglect, you'd have some nice looking locks by then.

And yes, Wash, wash wash. Nothing helps locks form better and faster and keeping them clean. The only thing you have to do is make sure they dry completely between washes and separate when needed

As for Burning man. I, too, want to go really bad. the only problem is the price. It's so expensive, but there's art there that you could never see anywhere else. I get the draw to it.

I hope you make it, but you should try to get to Gathering one day too. That one's, at least, free

Yea. It's all out now. They did loosen up a bit, but they're still keeping shape pretty well. I haven't touched them since I posted this. They look a little haphazzard, but I still dig em. I'm kind of surprised how well they are holding to be honest. :)
