Lint in locks
my tips seem to collect lint and I air dry!
I was curious on the best way to fully wrap individual dreads and the best kind of thread to use? mine are blonde so i'd really like to start addin some colors and funk to em also, any suggestions on a nifty site to order beads from?
yup make em how you please, but dont go too thick because they will thicken as they grow. alot of mine are super skinny which i dont really like so ive been lettin the scary thin ones congo. congos are two or more dreads that start to grow together at the root or anywhere else on the dread (just in case you didnt know lol) if you have any questions feel free to ask me! but really there isnt and shouldnt be much to dreading. let them be as natural as they can be! its the best feeling for both you and your dreadies (: they're purdy neat to watch as they do all kindsa loopy unique stuff along the way.
you can go to my page and see! ive got some pictures. just click on my name. well naturally my hair knots up and stuff really really fast but i did tnr about a month and a half ago and i've already got quite a bit of progress
oh but even if they do fall out leave them alone!! theyll find their way
just twist n rip and let them be, they may fall out they may not. try to make them not too tight but tight enough to where theyll stay put but not loose enough for them to fall completely out. that way they atleast have a foundation to grow on and dont tnr them over and over cause thatll just take ya back to step one and start progress all over again. just let em do their thing! and i use the knock off brand of johnsons baby shampoo from family dollar (if they have those stores wherever you may be) i wash about twice a week and my dreads seem to be comin along just fine (i used tnr also)
