The making of my dreads...

So I did my dreads without really know what the hell to do. Then I watched a youtube video from knotty boys showing how to make em. Although I'm not exactly supportive of dread salons (weird concept to me) it was a really good and informative video. I don't do the wax thing but I am using a bit of aloe I got at a co-op in bulk. I love, love, love aloe! So here is my redone dreading process. I'm not done yet. Some of my dreads had tightened and made themselves so I only have to re-do like 90%:) Score!

Very image heavy

This dread isn't too bad but it looks better now. I forgot to take a better pic of some of my less tight dreads.
