My name is Whitney, I've been reading this community for ever and just got my finished my dreads on Friday :-)

Edited to add some details...I spread this process out over three days, my friend helped me section, and backcombed the roots, which I then kind of combed out so I could twist and rip. My boyfriend worked on a few obsessively for a few hours, which was really entertaining. He's never even touched dreads before and he came at mine with a lot of energy. It was nice for someone I love to play with my hair like that :-) They're still a big mess and really frizzy, and I wasn't sure how I felt about them at first, but now I think they feel good, and natural. I'm enjoying the whole process a lot...I think I'm gonna give them a salt water or lemon juice spritz and a wash tomorrow. Any suggestions on proportion of salt or lemon juice (or both) to water? There was nothing too specific in the memories.
