How to start off on natural dreads

By: Nevada Gunn
Posted in:

Hi, I just joined this site and was wondering if anyone out there could give me suggestions on how I should start off; I am clueless but have been reading things on here which has helped ALOT and making me excited to do the natural way on my own rather than a salon.My hair is meduim curly hair. Should I comb after I wash or at all; Do I use specific shampoo(s); NEVER leave it in a bun or pony tail; is there teasing that should be done; should I leave it down the whole time during the first few weeks; could I put beads in them in the first month; do I keep my hair away from all products; I have so much questions but Ill leave it at that, any pointers are welcomed and appreciated. Also, I don't know anyone with dreadlocks because I live where they are not very popular so I need all the help I can get. Planning on starting as soon as I think I know enough to get started.

Natural way is the easiest of all! Just stop combing. It is important however to use a soap that doesn't leave residue in your hair. It is possible to remove the residues if you ever get some with baking soda washes.

I have been wearing my neglect dreads in a bun quite a lot. Especially when I started them. It just meant more separating. I always tie my dreads when I'm at work so I don't see any problem with it. Just wear them down as often as you can but never when they're wet. They will start to stink if you don't let them dry properly.

Have a great journey! :)
