I havent been on here in a very long time due to the stress of my current court situation with my children. Thats another post alltogether though. I wanted to share some dreadie knowledge with you. A few years ago my dreads were fuzzy and unruly up top. It seemed nothing was helping to tighten them. A friend took a few of them and : fishhooked:: them. BAD MOVE.. At first it worked, they tightened all the way up to the root. Now that theyre grown out another foot i have these wonderful HOLES in my dreads that were hooked. Hooking involes flipping your dread through a hole made at your roots and pulling it through, DO NOT DO THIS.. your dreads will never be able to fill in and knot. My dreads are still growing, but the few that were fishhooked will be shortened by the process because I will soon lose the sections that have holes in them. I can literally stick my finger directly through the dreads. I will post photos soon to show you, but please, if you care about your hair do not attempt this method.
