Just started my journey... Yesterday.
I've had dreadlocks before. I ripped and twisted my way to a head of thin and fuzzy dreads and took them out a few weeks later. Then I tried braiding in synthetic dreadlocks I got online but they left me feeling fake and like my head was a million pounds too heavy, so they only lasted a week. Now, I start my journey. The other times didn't even feel real to me. I'm going all natural/neglect, and already enjoying it. (I'm only one day in tho O.o). I finally feel like I have chosen the right path for myself. If anyone have any tips or encouragement, it is more then welcome. And if you can answer this question for me, I will be forever in your debt... Well in your debt for at least a month. :X. I want to make homemade beads. Since my hair has not dreaded yet can I still put beads in? Will it help the sectioning process? Will it slow down the dread process? I already have some nots forming in the back where I sleep, can I put beads on them to keep them from becoming one huge knot? I just want to put pretty beads in my hair, is that so much to ask?!
