||I'd like you. On a roll.
(If I missed the answer to any of my questions in the memories, just redirect me)
I don't have dreadlocks yet, and I want to make some. I want them to turn out nicely.
So, I've been reading through the memories, and I read somewhere that the neglect method produces the best looking dreads. My hair starts to form dreads if I don't condition it for a week-ish (I never brush my hair, and I never use shampoo, since I like the way it makes my curls look and feel). How long do you think it would take for my hair to stop looking strange and start looking like dreadlocks? I was thinking of using the back combing method, but not if my dreads will look nicer, and form not too slowly, with the neglect method.
Also, I'm hoping my hair isn't too short in the back to dread. ( Photos.Collapse )
Oh, one more thing. If I end up back combing my hair, will aloe help them lock up, when they're starting out? I have an aloe plant. If not, what is the best thing to put in my hair when I'm back combing it, or don't I need to put anything in at all? To my understanding, back combing is the same thing as teasing, right? So, how do I get it as tight as possible, and not just floofy and teased looking?
Yay, dreadlocks soon! *bouncebouncebounce*
