"Palmrolling can cause damage if done too often like any other maintenance method. Don't do it too much and you'll be alrite."

Profile Information

How long have you been dreading?
8 months
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
I did my first set with wax and knotty boy shampoo and i was disgusted by them so i brushed them out and did them with just back combing which i didnt mind to much and now i just let them live free and happy. I wash with baking soda.
