Different Dread Methods Clarified
ok i am a new member of the forum. i am very shocked by the attitude. i am not so sure i want to be a part of such anger. Thank you Island Mamma for clarifying the differences. I now have an official term for my dreads. I am mixed. I have backcombed (which is the majority) t&r, braided and neglect.The neglected ones formed because I got tired of back combing and twisting...also they were in back of my head and I couldn't reach or see them very well. So i just left them alone. You forgot braided... my braids turned into dreads too. So i am happy with the term mixed. I think the issue that ppl are having is the term natural. If dreads are not natural...does that imply that they are artificial? That is what it sounds like to me. None of mine (yes even the back combed ones ) are artificial. Maybe they are supernatural...like ghost dreads lol.
