Also at six months now and can barely tie em back...i usually also sport a headband or just throw the front ropes to the side, tried double buns to the back the other day and it works too.
Maybe look into flat twist/weave styles? The less dreads you have the quicker the process and always looks totes dope.
I aaaalways wear a headband. They're too short/chunky for double buns now. I can see if there are any weave styles that would work but my main problem is that my ropes are all different lengths haha! Thank you!
