Truthfully, this was like 1 month after I dreaded them. They just look neat in the picture. I had a lot of strays. I was always told to use a small crochet hook to pull in strays. Although I have read on here that's not a good idea. When I used it I didnt pull hard or break any hair I just got ones close to a dread and pulled them into it. It seemed to work well. That and I did a lot of palm rolling just to keep them neat looking. It didn't really do much but give the effect lol. Thanks!!
Can I ask you how you keep them so neat? I'm 15 months in now and I have so many strays and pieces not dreaded...I would love to have them as neat as yours were.
