I started my dreads night before last and did a few twist and rip and only one backcombed, because I want to keep as much length as I can,,,I'm sticking to the twist and rip ...also because my hair is super fine and the backcombing seemed to be causing a lot of breakage...
My question is this: After sleeping the "test subjects" for two nights, two of the twist and rip completely unraveled and are gone, the other four are hanging in the top half (6" of length, but the lower six inches unraveled) should I be rubber-banding the ends, or tying with thread or something? I have a friend to help me dread my whole head this weekend, but I need to know what I am doing wrong!
Also, can they be twisted and ripped too tightly? Because the parts that are holding together great are a little "kinked" with bends etc and will that affect their overall journey
