I removed my wraps to let my dreads "rest". I really miss them and will wrap some of the dreads again in 2 weeks or so. I've only kept one wrap that I've had the longest, 10,5 months. I put it on the dread that had to be cut into to remove my stuck glasses... Now it's a lot of fun to see how much my hair has grown since then and that it is dreading all by itself. Even though the hair has grown a lot it keeps getting shorter. Enough with the shrinking already!
