I made a big mistake by twisting, backcombing, hairspray, twist, backcomb, hairspray. What should I do?
I think it all just depends on hair type. As I said before, I know that a lot more african-americans use oils and butters on their dreads and always thought there must be a reason for it - just didnt know what that reason was.And personally for my hair type, twisting would be the biggest waste of time. i dont see how twisting could possibly make knots in my hair but it seems to work well for african-american or really curly hair. Dont see that the twisting could hurt too much as long as you dont twist your hair off your head so give it a go!soaringeagle said:
interlocking is not recommended and causes weak spots
there are no legit "tools" for dreading
twisting a lil can help twisting alot can hurt
u just wanna twist till it holds form and only retwist when they fall apart once they hold together wash after wash then stop completely
early stages id use aloe over oils and butters they are better off left for when theyre more mature (i believe) aloe instead of making them slippery and greasy tightens and shrinks as it dries and conditions, pulling knots in tighter
