I got my dreads on June 1st. I bought rubber bands and went over to my friends house. I couldnt wait to start. I decided to use rubber bands because I was having like 5 of us doing dreads and it was just easier to section it all off. I tried to get "No damage/hurt" rubber bands but it hurt trying to take them out later so that was kinda fail. We used the twist and rip method. My friends got frustrated because they couldnt get the hang of it but they watched a few videos and finally figured it out. I made like 5 of them in the front.
Some of my dreads are itty bitty and others we call "catipillars" cuz they're fat and fuzzy. But the fat ones are my favorite. My head has a lot of charater now. I love them. And i've already started to notice them changing up a bit. I feel like the front ones are to small but I'm trying to just leave them all alone and let them do their thing. I wear them up when I go out cuz they are a little crazy down right now. But I'm letting them loose right now.
Sleeping is sorta difficult cuz I have really fine straight hair so sleeping with lumps now it takes me a little while to figure out how to lay them on my pillow. But none the less I love them and all my friends are really proud of their handy work.
