Twist and Rip your own head

Hey there everyone. I have decided I am going to attempt to twist and rip my own head. This will be my first attempt at starting dreadlocks. As much as I would like to go all natural with being in business school and all I think this approach is the best one for me. I have 3-6 in hair that is super straight. Does anyone any words of advice? I feel like the back of my head is going to be hard to section as I have never tried before.

Thanks!

u can get help from a freind for the back but u should watch what they do with mirrors but many ppl did their own its not too hard

the more u randomize the better

I just finished doing them myself. Sticking straight up looking crazy at the moment.

they'll look awesome! im not sure it this is for all tnr dreads, but if you make too big of sections, you will eventually get some buck wild loops. my larger ones are nuts, i love them, but they are not really conservative. at all. the smaller i have, the less loopy they are. thats all the advice ive got. j

happy trails!

Well my hair seems to have laid down a bit after wearing a hat most of the day at class. When is the first time I should wash it?

i just did my own with no help but i also did them very randomly which i actually think looks a lot better

the only part that was hard for me was how tired my arms got, i didnt use conditioner for a few washes before and my hair was still super silky which just ment more time all together it took me 2 days (my arms were so tired i needed some good breaks) the good thing is that if your unsure about the back after they can be taken out fairly easy when they are new and redone (i had a big gap in the back of my head and had to make the 2 dreads in that spot into 4)

I feel you on the arms thing! I did mine in about 4 hours. The back isdefinitelynot as tight but I think they should tighten up on their own! How often do you wash them?
