Hiya. I've loved dreads for years. Over the past couple of years I'd tried both backcombing and twist and rip. the dreads fell out within a few days. My hair is fairly tangle resistant, fairly unusual for thick coarse caucasian hair. I recently came across the forum and after lurking for a week, I decided to try the neglect method. I haven't combed in 5 days, and have only washed once, with my usual diluted bronner's.
Glad to be here, hoping to learn lots about dreading and meet like minded folks!
