I have been reading this community for a while now and figured I'd might as well join! I am on my second set of dreads which I started shortly before finding GUDU. Thankfully for me I knew enough about dreads already not to do anything too bad to them like tons of wax or rubber bands. My dreads are just over a month old at this point. I love my little babies. :) The hard thing for me is that I am an actor (as to why I combed out the last set a year ago) but I am learning how to use wigs quite well. I plan on keeping these in for the long haul.
