Cool! I haven't even tried this look yet. I still have a few dreads in the middle that get sore at the root whenever I try to do something with them. Do you have the same problem? Did you feel any uncomfortable stretching when you did this?
If you've not styled your hair in a while it's not unusual to experience tender spots. This is the first time my hair has been long enough to style/use accessories on in over 7 years. Though this style didn't cause any issues, headbands and ponytail attempts sure do. If you keep at it, the sensitivity will go away but only if you introduce tension gradually and for short periods of time. You'll have to wear a ponytail eventually when they're flowing down your back :D :D :D
