Starting organic/neglect/patience dreads?

A friend is asking me about starting dreads. She seems to be interested in having them form naturally. Is there anything she needs to know aside from "just stop combing"? Hopefully some of you can offer your experiences... that is, if not everyone has abandoned LJ!

I started my dreads via backcombing, and ages ago, so I can only offer her speculative advice. My dreads celebrated 5 years yesterday actually. I will get to making a time line soon. :)

GUDU! Miss yer face (and back of yer face, and whatnot). Between living off-grid all winter/spring and traveling for work all summer, it's been hard to keep up. Finally have a bit of time off so thought I'd post a little update!
