A few days ago me and my friend made dreads on our other friend. A dreadhawk actually. This was the first time we tried to make dreads and at first my friend did very well and i really SUCKED, haha. But after practicing on a few dreadies i got the hang of it and they turned out pretty tight :). Me and the other friend already where dreadheads but now the 3 of us are dreadbuddies. My mom was like: "Oh, not anóther dreadhead!" We used knottyboy wax and rubber bands. I know most of you disagree with using wax and bands but me and my already dreaded friend had a good experience using them so we're just doing it the way it worked out best for us. In the end it took us about 7 hours, spread over 2 days






My friends. Old picture from about a year ago but his hair was the same before dreading.
