I'm just curious about what to do when cutting dreads. Not cutting them off, more trimming them. I figure I don't want long dreads and they're getting a bit too long for my liking, so I was wondering is it safe to chop off the ends without them unknotting, or would it be wiser to put elastics on or what?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can give me any advice.
I plan on getting dreadlocks this coming weekend. Any before-dreading tips? ie, should I not wash my hair from now until the day I get them done so as to "wean" my hair away from daily washings?
I'm getting them done "professionally" (yeahyeah, I'm too lazy to do them myself, and I feel bad about bugging my friends to help me)...so I don't need any actually dreading tips. just care tips.
Dreads are a bitch to maintain. at least mine are. does anyone have any tips for hair that refuses to stay dreaded?
