Hello, I was wondering if anyone started their dreads with braids and if so, do you have pictures? how did it go? how long did it take for them to tighten up?
08/09I actually started my dreads first and thought they looked hideous. So I started braiding in yarn and I notice that the yarn has actually helped to form the dreads and make them tighter and more uniform. It can also help fix kinks and other wonderful things. I love it so much I don't thin I'll be sporting anything else for years to come. Not quite sure how long it took. The base of my dreadies are much tighter than the ends, so it might depend upon the length of your hair. Or maybe that was just the way it came out for me. You can see pics of my hair on my profile.
