i want to put ONE dread in the back of my head. I have naturally curly hair. have a mixture of Type 3a hair & 3b, like Clair from 'My wife & Kids' and Alicia Keys. Will this be hard to do? Will the rest of my hair start dreading? lol im new to this, just let me know hair experts! :)

Anyone can get dreads- even those with type 1 and type 2 hair.  So this is really a non-issue!  If you search this section (the locs section) you'll find pictures of individuals with both these types of hair.

My hair is 3b/3c (like Cree Summers from A Different World- minus the brown color).  I have had locs since September 2009.  I started my locs with figure coils and they eventually matted together.  It took a little longer but 3a/3b hair should also be able to loc, if my hair can and those with type 1 & 2 can.

Good Luck!

_popupControl(); @Nichole23 thank for the response! I was mainly talking about the one dread in my hair part more so than my hair texture :)

just so I'm understanding you, do you want to establish one loc to see if you can loc the rest of your hair?

_popupControl(); @Afrocentchic oh no sis, I have to compromise with my gemini twin who wants dreads. I just want one in the back of my head, my main concern was will the hair texture around that one dread start to dread as well?

I see. The other hair shouldn't loc. BUT there is a chance that the loc might try to marry (join with) some of the other stand around it.

just make sure you separate it well from the other hair after your washes
