meeeeee again.....anxious to do my head

okay i need to find the person who mentioned a style of making dreads that had to do with twisting a section then ripping part of it up to your scalp. i need a run down on that again.
i can't find anythign about that on the web. but i could be using the wrong words. does anyone know what i'm talking about.....?

New Dreadies

I've been lurking around here for a while and I have wanted dreads since I was 13 (I am 20 now). I just wanted to post my pics for your viewing, you know...contribute. They aren't the best pictures in the world because I took them myself, but you can all get the drift!

my hair hurts.

tam rubbing...does that help tighten the dreads? it must, mustn't it? i haven't tried it yet... i'm having the hardest time with all these loose hairs, my dreads in the back keep growing together because of it. and what about aloe vera? what does that do? pros, cons?
