orangeblueeyes asked: hello beautiful, i have a question for your lovely self. I am starting dreadlocks and i need some help getting them to be even and tight. any advise? your dreads are great. i love your blog.
hi, thank you! c: i started my dreads using the backcombing method. keeping them tidy will be difficult! for a while all you can really do is separate nightly and palm roll after washing. once mine started locking up i invested in a small crochet hook and i use that every so often to pull in all the loose hairs and frizzies. in the past if i’ve had a problem dread with an ugly section, i put a bead on it or wrapped it in string. and that’s pretty much it! if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask! also i suggest checking out dreadlockinfo.tumblr.com, they know their shit! good luck c:
