All the way from scouseland me dude
Hey! As for those bands....they need to come out! And as far as the re backcombing.....please stop. As Chewin Change also said, it causes alot of damage! You rebackcombing isn't causing it to lock any better. Backcombing will fall out and its only purpose is to provide a base or foundation for locking...it is not going to create your dreads for you. By going at it in the way you are you are just making needless damage and weak spots...bands do that. Also, remember, you need movement in the hair for it to dread well. You are on your way....so relax....and let your hair take over, it knows what to do! Blessings.

To be fair, since iv taken them out my hair has just started to fall out again, so I though that if I put the bands at the very ends of the dreads, it gives a opportunity for the straight hair to dread then when they've done, I'll take the bands out so the dreads can round off at the ends.
