SO.... I just dreaded up like two days ago (so it may be too early to be freakin out), but I have control issues, so this is very much a challenge... but hey, at least I'm tryin!
My friend did a twist and rip to start me off, with much more twisting than knotting... so far so good, I think they are lookin good and theyve already started to lay much flatter... I showered yesterday and washed em with BC/sea salt after I had went for a run
just lookin for insight into the process... understanding helps me stay calm...... they loosened up quite a bit (which i know is normal), but I am worried about loosing my sections... right now, each dread looks as if two locks of hair just sort of coil around each other, like two pieces just twist... I have curly hair as it is (you can probably see the dreads are curly), so I am worried that, since this is what my hair does anyway, that they won't combine and dread
while I am not totally freakin out, and have supportive roommates to keep me goin (shout out to them for helpin me work the damn camera on the pictures), none of us know what the hell to expect or what we are talking about...
attached some pictures just to give a sense of whats goin on up there
