i had 2 sets of natural dreads the 1st time i didn't separate at all and had 3 crazy big ones ..i cut them i know that heartbreak..i cut em after a year

this time i separated for the 1st bunch of years then stopped and let them  congo

i don't think they will try to be the same sections but its possible ifso just separate em carefully into smaller sections

but 1st set i had 3 huuuuge ones and a few smaller

2nd set started with about 75-79

at 18 years in had around 200 so let them congo at will

i have no idea what i got now but I'm guessing 30-60  decent sized ones and a dozen or 2 babies and  a dozen or so rather thin ones still

Non-chemical salon dreads


Dreading Methods

yea but that's only 1 of many things salons do that's horific

but why would you be nervouse about the natural method?

heres typically what  you get from dread experiences

backcombed or 'made dreads"

day 1 omg i got dreads

day 2 oh damn they are flat and messu]y omg i screwed them up what should i do

day 5 omg theres so much frizz they are getting loose i need someone to fix them right away

day 10 omg the roots and tips are so loose they aren't dreading

day 20 they are even looser and messier 1/2 fell out completely

month 3 they are so loopy and crazy what did i do wrong

manth 5 they shrank omg whats wrong

etc etc ots a constant state of panic worried what you did wrong when its doing just what it has to

natural dreading

day 1 whew it felt good to not comb today

day 2 not a lot happening yet but i feel good

day  5 people are complimenting my hair more and i haven't done a thing to it but it is starting to section itself

day 10 i found my 1st dread this is so exciting

day 20 i have a bunch more dreads but a lot of loose hair too but i don't care

month 3 omg i love how loopy they are this is so exciting

month 5 wow they are shrinking and tightening every day 

its a constant state of amazement and excitement watching them go through the natural changes from hair to dreads

look around the site at how many started with every method you can imagine only to restart..sometimes after years just to do it naturally

i always give this advice

you can let the natural process start and if your not happy tnr at any time (way less damage then backcombing)

but if you jump into backcomb or tnr then wish you went natural your likely to just want to start over again

but daaaamn that poofy hairs cute on you yea after looking at those pics ,,  just wash and wait and you will see it sectioning ..i'm guessing you'll see iut starting in 4 days and in a week you will have a good idea how many dreads your hair really wanted to form

don't bother having anyone properly section it..just don't comb for a few days to a week wash as normal with a dread shampoo and it will section itself like it wants to (forced sections often try to split into natural sections at the roots anyway)

then you have a choice

once its sectioned you can either let it dread itself (your hair will do that beautifully and quickly) or you can twist and rip the sections that formed naturally

id recommend just letting it dread  but nothing wrong with twist and rip either

but ultimately your going to want at least 3-4 times as many dreads as you had

that s if you want them easy to care for

Non-chemical salon dreads


Dreading Methods

people have spent over 25 grand at salons for dreads only to go bald in the end

they charge absolutely outrageous prices and do severe harm

if instead of grab and go you just let it go to dread itself youd probly have 48 or so instead of 13

look through the salon recovery section of the site and see just why you just dodged a bullet

Introduce Yourself

your way over using he sea salt and gel wich will dry the hell out of the scalp

why do you want the tips to  blunt that wil only make them take 5 times longer to dry and you have a couple that are pretty fat and likely to mold with blunt tips

so ..stop using the gel and sea salt (use the sea salt rarely no more then once a week the gels mostly for natural dreads that are very very dread resistant it helps hold sections loosely together so they can start to knot

and stop messing with the tips!

ps use cold water when washing
