Yea, I ALMOST wanted to use it (after having been indoctrinated by DHHQ), but luckily the people on this site brought me back from it :)
And I understand the excitement :D just enjoy the ride and go for it!!
Okay... first wash...! I'll tell you my experiences, and others will probably be glad to tell theirs too, if you like :)
I washed mine at day 5, without a special cap or anything (have to add that I bathe, not shower. I can imagine showering being a lot more "damaging" to very young dreads (since the water is streaming and stuff)) They came apart a bit, got frizzy, but didn't wash out or anything ;)
And you REALLY don't have to wait a month or anything before washing. You CAN even wash them the first day, tough I recommend waiting about one week or so. (that's a good washing routine too! Don't wash too often, unless you want to spend half of your life waiting till your hair's dry ;P)
And don't worry about asking questions. Most people here like answering them, at least I do! Ask as much as you like ^^
Never stop dreaming, take chances, enjoy, never regret.
