recoverytrouble you and your replies are simply adorable!! Great advice too! :o) recoverytrouble said:
Tony, I've started drying my hair by just squeezing sections out, then the same again but in the towel. Then I wrap it up in the towel on top of my head while I dry my bod (yeah it's a 2 towel system, I'm a big shot!) and brush teef etc. Once I'm ready to put clothes on it's usually dry enough to take out of the towel without dripping everywhere. I've gotten into the habit of only wetting them if I'm going to wash em, and only ever in the morning so I have all day for them to dry and am not going to sleep with wet hair.
Good choice on going natural for your dreads, you should take pics for a timeline:)

Thanks NW I think you're gorgeous too:DSE, I haven't noticed my hair smelling at all but would that be because it's still not matured as dreads? Should I just play it safe and squeeze as much out as possible then air dry only always? I have heard using a hairdryer isn't a great idea, and I couldn't be bothered, but I don't get any time to sit in the sun on a weekday.

people have done that but it take a looot longer than it would if you just forgot about the braids. I've seen some pics of people with mature dreads that started as braids and they were about 7 years old but they looked maybe a year in maturity.

@billy the wool hats just help encourage some knots to form in undreaded hair at the beginning :o) Tony Goodtime said:

It really just slows the process way down, I wouldn't recommend it at all. Tony Goodtime said:
