Hey soaring eagle, just wanted to thank you for this informative and well-written Dreaducation post, it is still helping people all these years later! I’ve just begun my 2nd dreadlock journey a few days ago, natural (neglect). I like to call it the “peaceful method”, as it really feels like making peace with my body and my hair. Anyway, nice to brush up on the care routine for natural dreads, since my first dread journey (TnR) was 10 years ago. Peace and hope you’re well!
