I was looking through dread_ru and noticed that almost all the peoples dreads there look quite different from most of ours.
So my question is, does anyone know what exactly they do to them to make them look like that?
like in this post over there - http://community.livejournal.com/dread_ru/392644.html#cutid1
is it just uberbackcombing?
sorry if this is boring.
heres a slightly able to see dreads photo of me so it's not text only.

So while I was visiting a friend in Austin, TX (which I'm now totally moving to, I'm in love with the place), I made this decision to comb out my fringe. It was SUCH a bigger deal to me than it should have been, especially since my friend thought I was nuts for pacing around for 2 hours before actually going through with it.
Anyway, my dreadlocks are just under a year and the ends aren't locked up at all, they refuse to- I guess my hair's too soft, even though I wash it with soap, bleach the crap out of it, and do salt-water rinses and never rinse them after the beach. So eventually I'll trim the ends and they'll look more like dreadlocks but for now I'm enjoying the lose ends. Although I am pretty tired of people asking me if they are, in fact, dreadlocks because with a one-tone hair color and lose ends, they just look messy, i guess.

Anyway, I guess what I'm asking is for someone's opinion. I'm not sure whether I look silly with a lose fringe, or if I should comb more out or if it look ok-ish.

This is what it looked like before I combed them out:

And these next few pics are from Austin, and when my sisters came to Miami to celebrate their birthday (they're twins)
