Welcome to the community Loui. You certainly came to the right site to get all your healthy dread information to begin your journey. After reading, you will find that the neglect method is best, then the twist & rip method. While you are reading and deciding, you can start your journey by not brushing your hair anymore, then your journey has begun. What ever method you do choose, let you hair section naturally for a couple of weeks first, let your hair tell you where the sections want to be.....peace

Hi Barb, thanks for finding my post helpful. After 2 months most peoples hair is separated into sections, but some do take longer, so don't be discouraged. Let's see if there is anything holding it back at all. What are you washing with? Do you have a habit of finger combing? Are you using a conditioner? How are you using the sea salt? Best to keep that off the scalp as much as possible if you can because it can dry out the scalp, but it works great for speeding up the dreading! Try doing a sea salt soak once a week. Wet your hair first, then pour the mixture onto the hair drenching it, then leave on for 2 hours and rinse out.

It is hard waiting to see progress, but it will happen, that is where the patience comes in. Let me know about your answers for the above so we can see if something is causing the separating to go slower or if it is just natural for you......peace

Barb, you will be just fine. Many factors play into the length of the journey to maturity, anywhere form 1-2 years. Hair type, length, washing frequency, scalp type, and others play into how long it takes us. Your hair will dread just fine, and you will notice the changes in how it feels. Many surprising changes ahead. Have nor worries, you will be just fine with your journey, look how much you have learned already on how to keep them healthy....Enjoy your summer...peace

Hi Barb, you should be washing 2-3 times a week in the beginning of your journey. Although I did the twist & rip method to start off, I admit that the neglect / free form method is the best way to go right from the beginning. I have a posting that may answer many more of your questions. http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/just-starting-out-what-to-expect?xg_source=activity

peace
