how longs it been and u can try a clarifying shampoo to remove all te conditioners then just give it time
yea u got enough i started mine naturaly shorter then that so just let it dread i would not backcomb and absolutely not crochet if your not gonna go natural twist and rips the next best way way less dammaging then crochet and backcomb way more effective and less gooffy looking toobut i would start going natural today while u decide what u want to do
My hair was really long when I started dreading, and I wish it hadn't been. If you really want dreads, then start them now! It takes long enough, why put it off any longer? With shorter hair it can be easier to control your sections and you'll have less crazy loopiness during the initial knotting stages.Backcombing can leave your scalp a bit sore if you or whomever is combing isn't gentle. Crochet hooks are more gentle. Both methods come with the risk of excessive hair breakage if you don't do them properly, meaning you run the risk of loosing whole sections of hair if you're not careful. Don't freak out - you'd have to really be pulling and ripping at your hair to do this - but know it is a possibility.As long as you have a good 4 to 6 inches of hair, and some residue-free shampoo, you could start your dreadlock journey today!
how longs it now mine started shortand towl drying once can get it a lil knotty then the next time unknot the knots so i just shake em out and drip dry but an aggressive wool towel rub the 1st time can get foundation knots started
20 years and all naturals the only way id ever go
your welcome um i would never ever crochet your dreads tjo its so damaging therss no full recovery ever and just partial recovery can take 6 months..its a terible method and straight hair will dread just fine naturally but twist and rips fine too
Hiya Kelly,There are a few popular methods of starting dreads. The one most supported by of this site its the natural/neglect method. There's another tool-less method called twist & rip. I personally backcombed my locks in. Many people also use a knotting method utilizing a crochet hook.If you search around on this site and youtube using the phrases "backcomb dreadlocks" or "crochet dreadlocks" you'll see a few different techniques with those tools. It looks like you have straight hair, so I would recommend one of these techniques to start your dreadies.The main thing to remember about locks is to keep 'em nice and clean using either baking soda or a residue-free shampoo, and let them do their thing! You're going to look like a crazy jungle woman who doesn't brush her hair for a few months because well, you won't be brushing your hair! Get a wool beanie/cap that you like and rock it, it will help with the knots.
welcome sisternatural dreads are the way to go if u canonly way id ever dread personal;yglad u joined us
