Regarding Natural Hair..

I didn't see a lot of photos regarding starting dreads the "natural" way.

I haven't brushed my hair in about 3-4 months, except the bangs area, and I've already got some dreads forming! (I think.) I also wash my hair once every 3-4 days, switching between shampoo for my psoriasis and baking soda/vinegar (which also works wonders for psoriasis!)

They're mostly coming in the back, but not really so much on the sides, which is a bit of a pain, but I love how my hair looks, just like it wants to be. :)

What ways can I encourage my hair to start dreading on the sides?

Taking pictures of the back of your head is hard.

In this one I'm holding up a dread a friend did for fun. It feels more like a braid though, I don't know how she did it.

And for good measure, here's some photos of me and not just hair-me.

Have a great day everyone! :)
