Welcome to the community Nelson. If you are really interested in getting dreads, to speed up your wait, since you hair is so short, there is a product you can take called Biotin, with the 6000mcg strength. This promotes hair growth with results seen in 3 months, you can purchase it in the vitamin section at your local drug store for under $10. If you can't find that strength, just add up the pills to equal it, that is safe to do. Target stores carry the 6000mcg strength.
ill add just cause your friend may look like hes got dreads dont mean he has a clue what hes doing there are many harmful ways toi9 get the dread look that dont alow it to properly dread and cause severe harm
so please lets gio over every setail of what he wants to do and use
Welcome. Like Eagle said, do your research. Your friend may not know what he's doing. Sure there's a lot of info on "how to" out there. But most f it is bad info, unfortunately. Locks are free and easy. But that's not the stuff you'll find 99% of the time with a google search. First, you'll find about wax, then crocheting, then interlocking, then root rubbing and palm rolling, then felting. Eventually you may find something about the natural method. But even then, many sites tell you that it's natural so long as you don't use wax. That crocheting and interlocking is natural because no chemicals are used.
This is a lie. But a very powerful and popular one.
Ask your friend what they plan to do.
If your hair is as short as it is in your pics, it's too short for anything to stick right now. So no matter what method they use, there's just not enough hair to hold any knots.
welcome but nooo if u let it depend i]on your freind without reseaerching what hes going to do theres a 90% chance your screwed
find out wexatly what hes f=going to do then ask us
u dont need the freins tho it will dread itself free and easy
Welcome. The most healthy method is the natural method. That is, don't do anything other than wash. Through away your comb and brush, and let them form. Wash 2-3 times a week and let your hair section itself.
This method is not for everyone, though. In that case, the TnR method is most highly recommended. Back combing is alright, but it does do considerable damage to your hair.
No matter what method you choose, it takes between 1-2 years for mature locks to form. Some people see it happen faster. Others, like myself, took longer
welcome method natural products none (well a good dread shampoo like www.dreadlockshampoo.com
Welcome to the community Drea and to the best site on the web for all your healthy dread information. The dreaducation section is a great place to start, it's at the top of the site. Lots of info there. The neglect method is best, you just let your hair do its own thing, then twist & rip method is second best, but they do loosen and some fall out, so you kinda go backwards, neglect is quickest to mature dreads. What ever you decide after doing your research, let you hair section naturally first. In a couple of weeks of no brushing and no using regular shampoos, it will join into sections all on its own, pretty amazing....If you have any questions, feel free to ask us.
