Lol@growing dreads naturally.
The key to having dreads is nappy hair which is why I don't understand why people with straight hair try dreads it looks really bad in most cases.
ALL hair knots up on it's own. Even straight hair, it just takes longer. If you have long hair and you don't brush it, knots form and eventually turn into dreads. Some people stay on top of separating them, which leads to cleaner, neater locks. Some people just let it go and have a messier look.
Natural is the way to go. You can't "create" dreads, you grow them.
