So! I made dreads this weekend, or as one on a dreadlock forum once said, the foundation of dreads! :D Took a bit longer than I thought it would & my arms still hurts a bit. When you backcomb the whole back of your head you are holding your arms straight up for a long, long time... Easier to do the top and sides of your head.
I look like a mad squid. Or whatever you want to call it! xD
Not very pretty... yet!
The back looks even worse.
But then I got this scarf & it saved me from the squid!
Just washed my hair, even if your not suppose to for a few days, so now they are not sticking out so much. Still, I will live in the scarf for a while!
Last time it took 1-3 months before the beasts looked like dreads and were lying down nicely on my head. :)
