one month and experimenting


By Matt Locks, 2011-09-11

So Ive been doing the natural, no maintenance way for a month now, and I'm starting school tomorrow,, I LOOVE my dreadlings so far, but I really wanted to do something to help get the straglers started knotting WITHOUT DAMAGING MY HAIR OR SCALP.. backcombing, wax and all that crap are out of the question,,, but I found something called the "Pull and Tear" method, I imagine this CAN be vary damaging to the hair if done wrong, but when I did it on a loose dreadling VARY GENTLY, it seemed to do vary little if any damage, with no pain and a small amount of work It makes nice round dreadlings that I can now leave to finish on their own...I still have some "neglect dreads" and will post pics of each methods progress when I haveaccessto a better cam,,,

My natural dreads after a month.


By Matt Locks, 2011-09-07

I decided to getdreadlocks,andat first I was gonna do it the more popular way with wax and combs and crochet needles and tightening shampoos and twisting,, but I came across THIS site. After looking around at the results of "Store bought" or "manufactured" dreads on other sites as well as "natural dreads" on this and other sites, I decided to go with natural dreads. My idea of natural dreadlocks are dreadlocks that have no synthetic or unnaturalmaintenance products and no forming methods that areharmfulto the hair. I began by not combing, and after two weeks sections had formed, by now they have begun to knot and I have been sectioning some of the looser ones when they start loosening up, I started off washing with Baking Soda, But prefer using non-residue hand soap, after washing from root to tip I usuallt spray my hair with salt water(sea salt) to condition it. My hair is usually pretty straight, but it has gotten quite wavy since I dreaded it, (not a problem to me, but I have noticed lots of other people with straight hair who dread get wavy dreads). My dreads are silky and soft to the touch (not like wax dreads) and I honestly love them more every day... I'll post more recent pics and keep ya'll updated, any tips or comments feel free to post. :D BTW sorry for the horrible picture quality... I'll put a better one up asap
