its hard to take out so u have to think twice and hopefully decide not to
it should dread easy then
i want to do one part of it like some people braid one spot of there hair, kinda like that but how do i form it natural and leave my other hair the same....
Well, that's a bit harder, but you could find a section that you want to lock up and throw a bead on it to keep it separated. It may want to grab hold of hairs around it, so be sure to keep separating every few days to help it along. And just use one of the non residue shampoos. You can use it on straight hair too.
ok like i stopped combing my hair, i thank since yesterday and my hair sections anyway cause th curls and im trying to figure out if i want to do part of my bangs or a piece on the side..
The bangs would be unique, but might pull funny and feel strange with one or two hanging there. On the side, at least they are out of the way, and easier to hide if you ever feel like you need/want to
ok thanks ....i been looking on how long it takes to form natural dreads and i haven't had any luck . do you know about how long it would take...
They begin to knot up fairly quickly. Like you'll probably see some tangling in the first few days, may a week or so. But for them to become fully mature can take as little as 8 months, but as long as over a year. It all depends on your hair type and texture. Average time for them to mature is about 1 year.
They go through a lot of loosening and tightening phases before they just start to tighten and mature
