 today, a friend helped me start my dreads. she took small sections of hair, backcombed them a tiny bit (i would say more like "teased" them), then put rubberbands on the tips so i can tell each one apart....i guess i'm just a little bit concerned with how they're going to turn out, and how long it's going to take for them to really look like dreads.  i know that after the initial backcombing, you shouldn't touch them. but, since they're more "teased" than backcombed, it would probably be safe for me to go back through and backcomb a little more thoroughly, right? also, is the placement of the rubberbands going to upset anything? having them on the tips of the hair instead of near the roots?

sorry, i guess i'm just a bit nervous, is all.
