First timer

Hello all,
I have been looking on here for about 6 or 7 months and got the nerve to see what you think. So give it to me. . . just be gentle

Very impressive for a first timer. Way better than my first attempts! Your naturals are particularly lovely. My only critique would be to seal the ends on the twisted dreads a bit more. What method are you using to seal your dreads?

I was using a wet washcloth and a hair flat iron. i dont have a steamer and after burning the crap out of my fingers 42 million times I gave up. I thought I would give the natural a go, I think I like them better. Glad someone else likes them besides me.

Thanks ladies ;) I think maybe because I have put real dreads in my hair as well as a girlfriends maybe I had the backcombing thing down. Not sure but I found that part pretty easy, although there is a huge dif from real hair to this stuff. Hope to have before and after pics up soon.
