I posted a few days ago and I mentioned my boyfriend, who also has a few dreads. He had a tuft of hair that was very long growing out of the crown of his head, and a side rat tail. I just kept rubbing the hair against his head and eventually, it all dreaded and now they (especially the "top" dreads") are seemingly more developed and tighter than mine. Damn him. I don't think he even realized I was giving him dreads for the first few weeks until they were all of a sudden there. He's had them for a little over a year now. About five months younger than my set.
