Now that you've backcombed your dreads in from now on the hairs that would fall out on a daily basis can't come away, so that will give you nice thick dreads from now on.
I helped dread my "mother in-law's" hair and she is so wishy washy and she managed to get them out.. they were only dreaded for like 2 months. (shes white) and Its cool to see other white people dreading their hair.. keep up the good work. :D
Well I did backcombing so it's not really natural dreading. I did it that way because my hair is naturally very straight and smooth and wasn't dreading after about a year in my first attempt
4 months? that's whats up.. whats your secret?
