The “velco-y” effect comes from flyaways. So until you can make a dread with little to no flyaways, the dreads will at times stick to each other
I will be making a tutorial for that within the next two months~
Cutting the hair will help change the length of the dread outside of backcombing
I love the variety of colors at IKS. Not to mention they have always shipped my order immediately, are always updated on what colors are out of stock and when they will be back, plus they send me cute little toys everytime I do a huge shipment XD
No those are just scalp sores. Sadly it comes from the dreads pulling on your hair. I get them ALL the time especially at the base of my neck. The best thing you can do is wear your dreads in segments at a time, instead of a whole month or so. That will help aleviate the stress and kinda train your scalp to know the weight
I have to redye my roots all the time, you will be looking at wearing your dreads for about a month, maybe month and a half, taking them all out, doing your roots and then reinstalling~
Do NOT try bleaching/dying your hair with dreads in. It gets messy and can ruin your dreads.
For dreads by me: SynDreads - Order Dreads
Otherwise the best way to find out is by looking at great dread artists on facebook, look around their page to see if they have an area explaining where and how to order and if not, personal message them.
