I have read for a couple of months before i got my dreads, but it seems like 80% of this information is wrong.
I got my dreads 2 weeks ago. 2 of my friends did them, only by backcombing and rolling them. Not sure if this is an ok method, tho i hope so. They made 59 dreads out of my hair, which i was really suprised, since one of my friends, friend only had 24, and i thought that she had alot of dreads, lol.
I was told to "lock" the ends with a crochet too, should i just leave the ends?
Anyways, i want to know; what to do now?
How should i maintain them at this early stage?
I was told to use Knotty boy wax and crocheting, which i soon found out not to do (i haven't done either of the things luckely), but i dont know how to do it the proper way.
Here is a few pics i just took:
