So someone on here recently told me to braid them while wet. SO I just washed them - with yummy peppermint Dr. Bronners shampoo - and they feel awesome. My 11 year old sat with me and helped me braid them. (There are 86 all together so it took a little more time than I thought it would).
So here is a pic of them all braided. I will take them out tomorrow afternoon when they are dry. I have an appt to get a huge arm tattoo tomorrow night - so I will have a friend take a tattoo/curly dread pic for sure!
Oh and here is the pic of my late brother (dreads in his beard) and a few of his friends - her curly dreads are SO amazing!!
