I also see alot of people with straight hair have twist and ripped at least a little. Do I need to do that? Will it speed things up any?
So I've had dreads for about 3 or 4 weeks now. Orignally I teased them with my hands. About the second week I backcombed them and put rubber bands in tips. But I really don't see these bands helping at all. It seems as though they are stopping the rest of the dread and helping come undone. I know that they are supposed to come undone a bit but the bands def aren't helping. I have a couple questions.
1. Would it be worth while to buy some shampoo? Or just get the Baking soda and apple vingar mix?
2. Should I just take all the rubber bands out and let it be? I'm actaully tired of messing with my hair and I feel this would be better but I need some ecouragement.
