Nah it leaves my hair pretty dry, but if I scratch my head it does leave some sort of white residue. I just figured that's normal lol, maybe not? At this point I'm willing to give the baking soda a try, no harm in it after all. I'll try to get some pics up hopefully it will explain if I do have a problem or maybe it's just very very very slow progress.

Yea I want to try the sea salt spray but I I've to go get some non iodized salt first. Nice dreads btw!

you should really try washing with the baking soda wash recipe. Don't use the acv rinse though it's too conditioning. I bet that would help. You could also try a sea salt spray and a wool sweater on your pillow at night.

Ok so I've gone a little over a year letting my hair grow put and going the natural route. After about 5 months all the progress I had made stopped. I'm not sure his to explain this but my hair gets to a point where it kind of resembles baby dreads but after I wash them it's like I go back to square one. I wash my hair every third to fourth day with diluted dr bronner's peppermint liquid soap. I thought this would be a much smoother journey since I have fairly curly hair. My hair is now a little over eight inches in length and I was just wondering if the washing thing is normal. I'll try to add pictures asap if that will help.

Curly hair = Dreads?


Dreading Methods

Oh wow I feel stupid lol yea I'll get one up soon, sorry about that.

Can we have a photo please? I dont think you need that much patience with you hair type and the length. Maybe you should leave your hair to dread naturally it wont take that long. Backcombing isn't actually going to make dreadlocks your hair does that bit for itself.

Curly hair = Dreads?


Dreading Methods

Hi there. Well sadly I do not have a full of locs yet but I'm working my way there. I have decided that once my hair grows out two or three more inches I will most likely start my dreads with some light backcombing and then let nature run it's course. I'm not as patient as I should be and that is why I have chosen to backcomb. Although, with that said I have noticed that some of my chunks of my curly hair are becoming much tighter. By this I mean that they are starting to look like small "churros" , lol sorry that's the best thing I can describe them. Anyways I was wondering if maybe this is how natural dreads begin to take form, or maybe I'm getting a little too excited over a false alarm. Oh and btw I have 5 inches of thick curly hair if anyone was wondering. Thanks for your advice and suggestions, and have a happy nappy dread-day! (Which is pretty much everyday for the majority of people lol)

Thanks and good luck to you too.

Yup, that's exactly how I felt. Good luck with whichever you choose.Albert said:
I guess it's just the fact and idea that if I at least start backcombing or twist n rip I'll feel like I'm going somewhere. Plus, I won't feel like getting the clippers anytime soon lol.

Rama Varma said:
At four inches, bear in mind that whatever you do isn't going to look good. The only reason to do something other than wait at that length is, as we've both said, inpatience. But my hair looks worse than it did before. It looks worse, but it feels so much better to me.

Backcombing method


Dreading Methods

Yea I was planning on backcombing it as much as I could on my own and getting a little help on the hard to reach places. But I might just go with twist n rip with the rest. Thanks, and good luck on your journey as well.

Vinny said:
If you decide to backcomb I suggest doing it by yourself. less likely to hurt and turns out better. yes backcombing does make your hair look "goofy" but frankly for most people going natural it makes their hair look kinda "dirty". So it's a complete matter of preference really, gotta ask your self what YOU are willing to cope with.btw, good luck sir.
