Welcome to the community RAE. Save your money and don't pay a salon, instead use it to order awesome dreadlock shampoo and the Himalayan Sea Salt Spray. The sea salt spray will lock you hair so much faster. Coarse & curly hair usually dreads so much faster than straight hair. There are some pics on this site from other members journeys and you can see how fast their curly hair naturally dreaded.
You came the the right site to get all your healthy dreadie info. Do lots of research, read the dreaducation pages and ask any questions. This will get you off to the best start. With you type of hair, you will have sic dreads in 1 year.
Welcome. Ok, just to get it out of the way, with coarse hair, why not go the natural way? Your hair will probably lock up super fast. Plus it's the healthiest.
Ok, now I know that not everyone is ready for the natural method. So in that case, what is making you lean towards back combing instead of TnR? with either method, you will see untangling before you see any mature locks. When you wash them, both methods will come undone first. I'm not trying to convince you one way or the other, but I am just wondering why you're leaning towards back combing instead
Thanks for the Friend
Yes Joshua, the baking soda wash will exfoliate the scalp and help get rid of all the dead skin. It may take a few times, but then it will be gone. Always follow it with the ACV rinse unless you have a very oily scalp, as BS alone can dry out the hair and scalp, the ACV balances back the natural PH levels. To help combat dandruff, finish off with a cold head rinse each and every time. Do you need the ratios? http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/ratios-baking-soda-wash-apple-cider-vinegar-rinse-sea-salt-mix
