Hey, im new here, but i've been looking at everything and loving the advice and the pictures, their very helpful. but i have dreads now and for probably 7/8 monthes or so..have to check and see for sure the exact month (pathetic that i dont know since they're important to me) but anyways.. i just wanted to say hi and ask you how you felt about rubberbands and how they effect your dreads? i've read a lot of posts, but nothing about rubberbands. i also really like the idea of sewing/threading dreads, i think im gonna do that later tonight so my school pictures look awsome. thanks & peace, renee.
