Free Form Dreads

Free Form Dreads

After just a month of changing how I ate back in 2012 I decided to go all natural with my hair care too.  I have to admit that I used to be an obsessive comber/brusher of my hair but throwing away all my combs and brushes made me feel so free.  This started the long process/journey that I was ready to embark upon.  After many many hours of research I learned that I wanted to dread my hair the all natural way (neglect), no back combing, rip n twist, and no waxes or products.  For the first year I washed my hair with ACV/Baking Soda bath.  About a year in i stopped using the ACV/.BS because it became a hassle and started using Dr. Bronners liquid castile soap.  I usually wash my hair two to three times a week depending on how dirty I feel.  One website I found the most helpful was http://www.dreadlockssite.com/ .  There are so many people there that have great information on natural freeform dread locks.  Even just looking at the pictures on the site can be inspiring because for the first year or two of natural free form dreads, you feel like your hair will never dread up the way you wish it to.  I started my dread process in August of 2012 and every week I am surprised how much my hair changes.  You start to get to know every one of your dreads as they form and as the months go by you become more and more attached to them as you have put so much dedication into them.  I joke with most people that I am more dedicated to my hair than most people are dedicated to their significant other.   My dread process has taught me so much about myself.  I have learned to be more patient as this is a key aspect in dreading your hair.  Most people just want to rush into dreading their hair and resort to products and other hair damaging practices so that they can have dreads overnight.  I am so glad I took the all natural route and have no regret looking back.  I can't wait to see what the future holds for me and my dreads.  

I want this group to be a place where people can share their experiences with natural dread techniques.  Also a place where people can post pictures of their dread process.

I am jus letting my hair go now too...

You know I completely stopped using shampoo or soap or anything. I don't stink, my hair sometimes looks like the Commercials for hair Products. I had to get through maybe 1 or 2 whole weeks of slightly oily hair but after that the hair started to take care of itself. I shower once a day and rinse my hair in water. All good.

Any tips? I have medium length hair, and no dreads.... yet.

PEACE
