My hair is uber-long (like below my waist) and have started to Twist n Rip from the back, but it will take me aaages to do my whole head....

From a weekend's effort I have 4 done. My sis has sectioned the next row for me, butis it best to finish one down the whole length (this takes two evenings!)or do an inch worthof each sectionfrom the row, just to get them started?

My question is can u sucessfully leave some hair un-dreaded while the process is going on underneith? I'm also having to wear my hair (and new dreadies!) "up" for work, but don't want them to be harmed in the putting-up process eg in clips and bobbles. Advice =appreciated!

why bother tnring with your hair if u let it dread itself it will dread faster then u can tnr it

tie u[=it back loosely with a bandana or wide headband

also your sections are about as big as u ever want dreads to be if they ever congo it can be trouble

The way your going is real fun I remember doing it that way, I did 1 dread a night while watching TV on the couch, you would only have to t&r half way down each section to guide where you want them to be and how thick, then the rest will follow. Doing it this way you get the whole head done quicker and then can at your leasure finish them all off if you want!
