I am starting mine over using the "T&R" method & I have watched a ton of vid's on how to do it, but you do it compleatly diffrent & I like it alot better. Your way seems to keep the loose hairs in... Yea thanks so much for posting this video.....

letting the hair section itself will give a more natural look, sectioning it yourself gives a more uniformif you section early on u get that exposed scalp around emif u alow natural sectioning you might wanna seperate em lil more often early on

Don't worry if some seem too loose around the root. A lot of my most worrisome dreads ( and the ones that seem to look the best now ) were very loose when I started out. As far as sectioning is concerned, I just took a shower with anti-residue shampoo and then watched how my hair sectioned it's self when it was still wet. Then I started with gentle knot forming, which lead to a bit more aggressive effort once my hair dried more.

When I twist too much, it knots too far away from the scalp and I'm left with half my length still straight hair. I guess that would work for keeping the hair in bunches and letting it dread itself, but that's not what I'm trying to do. You could also forgo the rolling of the lumps. Doing that makes the dread-starters tight and even, but poofy and lumpy probably does the trick just as well.

u know how u said dont twist to much so it bunches up on itself?my best freind chevy (chevelle trant on here) had one of hers done by tisting it so much it bunched up into a ball on her scalp..then he pulled the end out so (as chevy described it it "boinged" back out straight then help together and dreaded from there..but hers wanted to dread so bad it dreaded naturaly in under 2 weeks

I'd like to provide some more detailed instruction here--but note that I'm new to this. All I know is that I'm creating knots that don't need wax and haven't yet come undone in the shower.I begin the process by sectioning my hair. This is a matter of individual preference. I actually started by sectioning it myself, but had my girlfriend start doing a few rows at a time. You might spot some rubber bands. Those are just to keep the sections neat until I can T&R them together.The process is fairly simple. Gather the section in your fingers and twirl it. I spin clockwise relative to my face. I don't know if this is relevant. Don't twist it too tight, or when you go to rip it, it will bunch up way too densely to reach the root end of your hair, and you'll end up with a long length of straight hair between the knots and your roots. Instead, twirl lightly. Then slide your fingers slowly toward the tip of the bunch, until you feel the end of some hair. Next, split that bunch into two, and pull it apart. The crotch of the separated bunch should slide down to the scalp. Don't pull too hard. You may not be able to see, but you just made a thin layer of tangles. Now, without retwisting, grab a little bit of hair from one half of the bundle and pull it into the other half. You only need to retwist every three or four rips, or when the hair gets too bulbous. When that time comes, hold the knotted section in your fingers and roll it so it's even. Use this action to push any loose loops up into the bundle of unknotted hair. Then retwist and repeat. Once you get a good layer of knots between your scalp and the ripping, you can pull the hair apart pretty hard. Just don't go pulling your hair out.
