So my mom came across this site after I had started to get dreads, she and my friends had both tried to backcomb my hair on different occasions, about a day apart. But they weren't locking up. Some of my friends think I should use wax, which I now know I should steer clear of. But I can see why, it would be nice to have dreads in a day, or a few months even. But now my backcombed hair is at least sectioned out thanks to my mom. It clumps together in the sections still, about half a week later, and two days without rubberbands. But I have pretty straight hair, just a couple waves a the bottom. It was about a foot long, give or take an inch. I guess I just want an estimation of about how long it usually takes for a person with half-ass backcombed hair to have real, tight, dreads? I'll probably post a picture or two in a day or so. And if it matters I always have it back in an elastic headband my friend gave me, would this slow how long it takes to lock-up?
@ least a good yr 3-5 mths is the ruff stage a lot. Of ppl cut them cause they want the finnished product in months when it take yrs.
