Subtle dread locks! Super cute and manageable.. Method: back combing, rolling and crocheting loose ends. No worries or fears of not being able to take them out. With patience, fine comb and a good amount of conditioner you can take them out rather successfully before the 6 month mark when normally they lock up rather well. Also no locking products needed as long as you keep them taken care of by continuing to back comb and crochet loose parts back into the dread.
