been lil while but WELCOME TO DREADLOCKSSITE PEACE luv the profile pic:)
Welcome to the community Karen. It's fantastic to see moms so involved with what their kids do, many out there who really don't care. The dreaducation section is a great place to start for information on how to grow healthy dreadlocks. I won't fool you, to do it the healthy way can be a year of messy looking hair as it knots up and shrinks to mature, but it is the best way for sure. Wax in any form is one of the worst things to do, it will hold in smells, dirt, and pockets of water causing mold, so no wax! Depending on the length of your childrens hair, the journey can take 1-2 year until they are mature dreadlocks. A long time to wait it seems, but they grow healthy and strong and are able to last for a lifetime if wanted. I have a post on what to expect throughout the journey, although I used the twist & rip method, almost all of it still applies. The free form/neglect method is the best there is, the second best is the twist & rip method. The third is back combing, but there is some damage to the hair with this method, it's just like teasing the sections of hair up to the scalp. Do plenty of research, ask as many questions as you want, many of us here will help you out.
