I had dreads for 2 years when I was younger. When I decided I wanted dreadlocks, I asked my friend to help. My friend sectioned out my hair into 1 inch squares all the way around my head, paying attention to where I would like my part to be. Then a section at a time, she ratted the hair. I continually played with the dreads for a month or so, making sure they were forming up good.
