It's been about 2 months since I started. I wish I hadn't put in a handful of dreadlocks on the left side last year, now it seems very uneven, but I think over time it'll be fine. The thing I really dislike is how the older locks feel. Some parts are rock-hard. I didn't know much about dreadlocks and let my friend put them in,- she sometimes used a FELTING NEEDLE. Never ever do that. I knew from the beginning that wasn't right, but she's a very strong headed individual and pushed me into not worrying about that. Do worry if your friend suggests a felting needle, don't use it, they become so tight and gross and unnatural looking... You can clearly tell the difference between a doctored dread and one that free-formed; the less you do, the healthier your babies will look and feel. I'm hoping after 10 years of growth or so they will just be the ends of healthy locks, little reminders of past mistakes, that blend in w the rest, though I think they will always look different.
