Yesterday I successfully wrapped part of my dread for the first time. Before that it was disastrous, so I'm happy. It's only a small one, but anyway. I used the search tool, but I've always heard both, so figured I'd ask to be sure. When you wash, should you take the wrap out, or is it OK to leave it in? Should you blow dry it or will it dry on its own? I've done it tight enough that it's not loose in any way, but not so tight that it's squeezing/constricting the dread. Oh, and it's embroidery thread.
It's not zig-zagged or anything by the way, just like how people completely wrap their entire dreads, except this is a small section.
