Rats.. I was worried about that.. Thanks. It's just that how am I posta get em to stay if they're not tight but if I wnt em to look good, I can't have em on tight. What do u suggest?

Looks cool!Whether the hair will dread underneath depends on how tight the sleeves and beads are. If the hair can't move around under the bead or sleeve, it won't be able to dread and you'll end up with a bump above and/or below... and a weak spot under the bead.

it'll dread but if its too close to roots or tips wont give it enough room to dread and since your hairs shirt u should try to get a bead to stay in tight as close to the tip as u can so theres movement room (4-6 inches) between bead and rootsif u put a i inch bead in the center of 3 inch hair ..nothing will happen unless a lil knotting happens inside the beadid opt for a smaller tight bead that barly fits in the tip and holds it there

So I can keep the tips secured n it'll still dread but if I secure the roots, it won't dread? I should prolly take everything out huh? I just want it to stay sectioned somehow..
