Hi everyone,I'm 5,5 weeks into the natural proces now.And my Hair didn't change in the slightest.I haven't got any loops, bumps or tangled hairs.Now I know 5 weeks isn't that long, but my I think my Hair type just isn't that suitable for freeform dreads.I have curly thick Hair. My Hair is sectioned though, but curly Hair is Always sectioned!My Hair is super super soft, not a knot to be found.I wash my Hair 2x a week with baking soda. week ago I stopped using ACV in the hopes that my Hair would become dryer. IT didn't, now I just have a SALT layer on my Hair but my Hair itself is still soft.I sleep with a woolen sweater on my pillow to get my Hair tangled. But iT doenst Seem to help Either.Any suggestion?Should I twist and rip my Hair and let I go from there or just leave iT?

Hey guys,So I have a question.When I had my previous set of dreads, which were made with a crochet hok, I used to put lemon aand salt in my hair.Regular salt mixed with water or lemon juice and sprayed that on to my dreads.People told me that would make my dreads mature faster.And i really helped back then, my dreads got really tight.But can I also use it wit neglect dreads? Will it speed up the proces or damage my hair?I'm looking for ways to speed up the proces just a little bit. Sometimes it really hurts me to see all those lovely dreads on the internet, I miss mine so bad!It feels lke a part of me is missing now, which sounds kinda stupid cause I only had them for like 3 months or so.Sooooo, will lemon or salt help my dreads start locking up or will I damage my hair?

Hi,My name is lisa, i'm 25 years old.I want to apologize in advance for my english, it's not my frist language, i'm from Holland.July this year I got my first set of dreadlocks.With the backcombing and crochet method.Cost me 200 dollars and 10 Hours.I was really proud of them, having dreads felt like coming home.But then I came across this website.I loved the natural look! A few years Ago I really wanted to grow natural dreads, but I was too scared, so I went with the crochet method.But with every day that passed with my new dreads I realised dreads or not just a hairstyle, it's a journey and a way of life.When i found this website i wanted to keep my dreads at first and just let them grow naturally from there on.But it didnt feel right, they felt fake, created, manufactured. I wanted dreads that had the change to grew on their own, find their own place on my head, grow personalities/ personalitys (?)So i combed my dreads and started all over.I"m one week into neglecting and to be honest, i'm doubting if I made the right choice.I looked at a lot of your pictures on this site and I feel like everybody's dreads are TnR.Should I also do TnR or just let them be?To be honest I just want to let them grow naturally and see where that takes me. But almost everybody hee used TnR or maybe it just feels that way.Anyway, thank god I found this website, looking forward to getting to know you and I'll post Some pictures as soon as possible (there's not much to see yet)Hope you can all read my poor english :p
