I am starting this for myself really to track my progress and hold myself accountable. I will post a monthly pic from now on.
I'm starting from short hair and dreading as they grow. I rub with a beanie, but try to limit it as much as possible. I do it mostly to fro out my hair after wearing a beanie or when I wake up in the morning. I am conscious of potential damage, but I'm careful and not really worried about it as my hair is very thick. A little breakage with my hair this short I don't believe will have any negative affect on my dreads when they are longer and mature. I use Bucks County Dread liquid shampoo and bars with occassional locing gel between wash days.
1 month in and I've got lots of knottiness and even a few locs. Stoked on my journey ahead!
