There are loads of different methods...

Backcombing
Twist and Rip
Twist and Pin
Twisting
Brush Rubbing
Dread Braiding
Neglect


Google will tell you about all of them...

Most commonly, amongst my friends anyway is the back combing technique. Take a small section of hair, twist it from the root tightly then back comb that twist from the root down and back up. Little hair band on the end will keep it together for the early stages.

You don't HAVE to cut your hair, I've known people to seriously condition their hair and they have eventually managed to release the hair. But, their hair was relatively short and not left in the best condition.

You can and should wash your dreads, but it's best to use special shampoos that don't leave a residue because that effects the dreads.

White people shouldn't have dreads.

I'm white btw, to me its like a white person wearing a turban because they would like the way it looks.

They usually use beeswax to keep the knots in your hair.
They are permanent, but they can take them out but it takes a lot of time and some special conditioner.

Not all people can pull them off, but honestly some can.. Like Whitney from The Real L Word:

I don't know much about dreads; but just saying some people can really pull them off.
