A little information: I do not have dreadlocks. I have in the past, and have always been very interested in the subject. Hell, maybe I'll have them again! But anyways, some questions..
When first creating dreadlocks, are rubberbands neccesary? Could cotton string or beads have the same affect?
Is there anything you can do to thicken dreadlocks? I know there's really no way of telling how your own dreads will come out, but is there a way to help make them nice and big?
I've searched through 'memories' and not seen anything on the subjects, but I am a bit drunk (sorry!!)
