Thanks for your answer on my question, but since I'm pretty much no good at styling my hair and my back combing failed.
I have really thick, wavy hair do you think that I could just get natural dreads with it?
Or what do you suggest?
Umm, in my opinion I would not let them form naturally. The only reason is, that I have seen many girls just get a lump of hair in the back of their head where they sleep on a pillow. I would stop using conditioner and stop brushing but would highly suggest going to a stylist for help. Nothing too fancy, just find a stylist or friend, maybe african america, who specializes in braids or cornrows (like the ones you get on vacation in the caribbean). They will be the best resource for separating your hair into designated size dreads, and follow your head-shape to make them even.
So a stylist/friend can help you separate your hair into even sized ponytails (like 60+ depending on size you want - def smaller than the girlies in pic haha) and then help you backcomb the hard to reach areas. Then you can crochet them for hours and hours and have dreadies!!
I hope that helps!!!
