Hey Guys n Gals of the dreadlockssite.

I'm new here and am looking for help. I've been really thinking about getting dreads for many years and in the last month or so I've decided there is no better time than the present. I know a handful of people with dreads and all of them used wax to create theirs. They look great but after reading up on the whole wax thing im quite unsure if I should use it in tiny tiny amount's or none at all.

Also what is the best way to prepare my hair. I intend to use the backcombing method to create the locks.

Any help that you guys can give me would be very much appreciated.

Thanks all

most of us who went natural had jobs and had no trouble

we even have dr's with natural dreads

dread the way you want to dread not the way you think others want yiu to

or the way yu feel your "allowed" to

its your hair not theiers you work for them they dont own you

If you're wanting to appease your work, definitely twist & rip. Backcombing tends to make you look like Sideshow Bob for a while. But I have to say, none of these methods are going to allow you to bypass the messy stage. It lays out the sections and everything, but some of them come loose again (which is fine, it dreads on its own so if they do that, just leave them), and they start looping and doing all this stuff that's part of dreading, so...the messiness can't be avoided no matter what. That's not to say you can't tie them back for work or whatever though.

Using the natrual/neglect method isnt really a possibility for me at the moment because of work.
