Hoi (hi in dutch)
I'm Ciske from the Netherlands. I like drawing, reading, playing pokemon and crochet (with wool, not with hair). My hairtype is very volumious and wavy. I'm half Indonesian (not sure if that has anything to say about my hairtype).
My interest in locks started 2 years ago. Out of nothing I asked myself how dreadlocks get made, and after watching a ton of videos I decided I wanted dreads. After a lot of discouraging google results that told me that getting dreadlocks can make you bald and that it costs a fortune to do, I stopped my dreams, and decided to cut my hair (which was about 13 inch long at the moment).
After a couple of months, I discovered the circle jerks with frontman Keith Morris. I was blown away by his dreadlocks and I immediately founf new interest in them. But the strange thing I discovered was that his dreads looked very uneven and were different in size. And after a quick google I came at this beloved site.
Here I finally discovered the neglect method. From then on I decided one day to start neglecting.
So at the moment my hair is about 8 inches long and 15 September 2013 I officially started locking.
So that was my very emotional/utterly bad/cringeworthy story. But another reason why I've started this message is because I have some questions:
1. I don't have dreadlockssoap or baking soda, and it will take a long time before I can get some. Is there any quick alternative?
2. Does a beanie/hat speed up or slow down the locking process?
3. When do I have to start with interlocking? (taking them apart)
Thanks in regards
