how do you think my dreads are going?They are 4 days old, i backcombed them and stuck rubber bands on the ends of them. I didnt do my whole head, because i want to wait 2 weeks, and see if they stay in. Then i will do the rest, if my dreads are progressing.Are they going to stay in??? when should i take out the bands??? would they fall apart if i take the bands out???Pcitures:http://s915.photobucket.com/albums/ac355/qwertyful/?action=view&current=Photoon2010-07-15at11085.jpghttp://s915.photobucket.com/albums/ac355/qwertyful/?action=view&current=Photoon2010-07-14at22072.jpgP>S I HAVE VERY THICK HAIR AND CURLY.

Lose the rubber bands and expectations and you'll be just fine.

okay, rubber bands come out!!! thanks, and would a tiny incy wincy little bit of wax around the edges, once a week, help hold them in???i dont mind if there is a little wax shit inside the dread.....so you think they will hold?Knottysleeves said:
They don't look any different than they did on the first day, to be honest. But 4 days is nothing in the dread journey. You've only taken the first step in a very long path. :-)
Lots of great advice in your First Day post about the rubberbands. I'd take them out if I were you.

eek, you may not mind now but I think in the long run you might regret it. imagine the build up D:ha, but I think they look good, but would look better without the rubberbands, but you took them off so yay! :DI think if you just left them and didn't even do the rest of your head it would look great. like go all natural from here on out =] it looks like it would come out really cool :DWill Gibbs said:

nonono no wax ever look i started mine without backcomb without wax without rubber bands well all i did was do without..combing and conditioningthats all u need to dread is not comb or condition so if dreadings that easy to do without wax and bands . but when u do use wax and bands they recomend rolling rubbing and constant work maybe that should be a hint to u that those things make it harder not easier to get dreadsso no wax no bandsjust time thats the only thing u do need is time
