welcome its a missuse of the term natural many use it to mean no dread perrm many no wax some even use it for any dreads that are hair not synthetic but natural dreads are freeform organo=ic or neglect natural dreads are allowed to form naturally not forced to form using tnr or backcomb or any methods
just clearing that up
Welcome and Happy Dreading.
Always, Hippie Love
Welcome to the community. Good that you don't use products. Although you do not use any products, it does not make them natural dreads, unfortunately. Real natural dreads form by themselves, while you used a starter method. You will still have some good dreads once they are matured though, but there is a difference. Anyway, looking forward to seeing your progress.
