Using thread as bands (root thread)

Many people start their dreads by separating hair with rubber bands.  This is a great way to start dreadlocks.  After a week or so however, rubber bands will start slipping down the dreadlock.  After a month or too these rubber bands will start to break off/break apart.  This is when the thread comes in.

I have not found too much online about using thread in replace of bands.  I decided to try it myself.  I have had the thread in for just about over a month now.  I find that they don't slip as much as rubber bands, and (unless its not wrapped enough) tends to stay on longer than rubber bands.

I will be posting some videos later about hot to thread roots.

  1. Defo use thread! Rubber bands are horrible, and I really really believe that people should not use them on dreads, at any stage.
