Hey everyone ! Like I said I'm new as it can get. I'm 22 years old and from NC.
I hope I can get a lot from this site as well as contribute perhaps?
Anyway I don't know ANYTHING at all about dreading up. Long story short a buddy of mine twisted my hair up for free. Did this back in June. Well everyone around here has been saying go get them retwisted to lock the new growth in Yada yada .
Well I went to some African hair salon to get them retwisted , btw I am half white and they said my hair was a bit different than most African Americans , implying dreads may be harder for me. But my point is I've been doing a little reading and it seems like getting them retwisted isn't always recommended? Becayse they did twist all the newgrowth in and now the dreads are tight. Not bad like braids and I dont feel any kind of pulling though.
i do know they used some sort of gel and hairspray, which I also read wasn't normal.
So how can. I figure out if my hair is alright and any future tips would be cool.
posting a few pics of it, thanks guys. sorry if the quality is a little weird looking for some reason I could only upload as (gif)..
