I remember the first video I looked at showing how to put dreads in (or whatever you want to call those waxy yukky sausages that hang from peoples heads) having folks who lived in the islands for 20 years I know that dreadlocks have to just form ..they can be ripped and shapped a bit but not with "product"
anyway I watched that video and this guys hair was ruined by the globs of wax she put on after backcombing ..I was stunned and thought "where the hell does the dirt go but into those sticky things?"
really I can only imagine how gross it would be to play with my husbands hair and have my fingers get stuck in the disgusting mess this could become
and it is not like they apply a little bit ..oh know she was gobbing it on like shaving cream
I am glad I found this site ..I did know I was going natural because to me there is absolutely no point at this point in my life to do anything else ..dreads should happen ...not be forced in my opinion
but boy oh boy have I gotten some good tips here so thanks
