tryto figure out the optimal styping now cause rushin last minute and tryin to figure it out might be a pain..lolu can also try thisstart on 1 side grab a bunch 5-6 or so twist em round eachother a few timesso that when u pull it up and lay it forward around the top of your head the twists go over the top then towards the headnow jus go around, taking the ones under it and going over the top and forward and the oner above it go under then aroundkeep going forward and all the way around takin dreads to join into the twist, tucking every end in securely by the scalp (or between dreads) and just keep working around till every drewads tucked in nice and tight and it forms like kinda a dread crownmuch easier when long but u should be able to do it short too

do you think the aloe could also help with the frizzes or fuzzies that happen on the acual locks? my dreads do that a lot and i would like to smooth that out when going for job interviews (im graduating college soon).soaringeagle said:

i'm going to be the Maid of Honor at my best friend's wedding next month and I was told the same thing. "Just make them look nice" And I've been using a little bit of Aloe vera on them and they look great so that's the way to go.
