    if you want naturals, it works ;) Just wash (without conditioner) and don't comb.

    I dont want to wait that long and was just wondering if the beanie method would speed up the process

    If you are not prepared to wait then dreads probably are not for you. Will take atleast 1 year to get some nicely formed ones.

    If you don't want to wait that long, try backcombing.

    my tip: be patient. you're going to have dreads that come out and reform. you're going to have loose hairs. just wait, and time will fix it...

    I have quite bad dreads, and i use a bennie at night, i think it helps mat them abit, and stops them going evarwhere in the morning,

    throw away the DHHQ, it's so harsh and not good at all for you. the natural method is just that, natural... no sectioning, no back combing, just natural. try wearing the wool beanie at bed time and any other time possible, maybe rub it around with the hairs, and once the locks start forming you can rip them apart if you like. but have patience :)
