sleep

ie. beanie off   :P

Honestly, sleeping is when I dread best.  :)

my sis's ex was japanerse with long hair if he didnt braid it b4 ved  every night hed wake up wiot all his hair locked in like 6=8 giant dreads..just overnight a beany would restrict movement like a braid leave it loose and itr will dread

Beanie's are too tight no matter what.  They restrict all movement.  The only hat you should be worried about is sleeping with or without a tam.  And 99% of the time it will fall off over night, so why bother.  Locks do not have to be baby'd  It's messy hair.  Just let it be messy until it starts to locks up

thanks everyone! beanie off for this guy hahaha

No touching on the first date ;)

Beanie off. Don't wanna restrict the movement. Sleep is a good time for dreading. I find sleeping on my dreads surprisingly comfy.

i slept without the beanie. i have sooo many loose hairs haha, but i kind of like the look. seems much more natural when there is loose hairs in there. maybe later on they will even form their own little dreads so i will have dreads of all sizes

Yeah, they'll either form their own, or get sucked into one close by.  There will always be some loose hairs, but never the same ones all the time

also, try putting something wool over your pillow. seems to be helping my babies along nicely.

Wool helps a little, but does tend to create tons of frizzies.  They'll form with or without a wool pillow case

i've slept with tam on, tam off, & a wool pillowcase, still no knotting. they will come in their own time, even if that's a ways away. eventually all will knot.
