Week 1 dreads
Almost all my dreads are about 6 days old now. One wash with the Dr Bronner's magic soap in Lavender so far....
I haven't used a comb in years, and my hair separates and tangles pretty good in parts but I always ran my hands through it and used conditioner. I have a hard time not playing with my hair so I figured that the neglect method wasn't going to work for me 100%. I needed to have a base foundation laid and then let nature do it's thing. So I went with Twist and Rip. I didn't want to initially lose length so it seemed the best for me. I think I lost about 2 inches total in length by twist and ripping.
No rubberbands for me so the ends are very loose and wispy. Looks like anywhere from 2 inches to 4 inches all the way around are loose. I'm hoping that it will eventually work up in the dread.
