Split ends?

So I loved having dreads, and I'm excited for my new set to form.

What I DON'T love is bad split ends.

Anybody have a solution? I'd rather not cut the ends once I have actual dreads, because I tried that before and it took away from the natural type of look.

split ends are caused by combing and brushing now that u stropped combing u shouldn't get any more split ends so dont worry about it and definitely dont cut anything

Okay, thanks. I bleached my ends before to try to get them to knot more, i just noticed that may have been the culprit. DERP lol :P

Too much salt water can cause split ends too.

i wouldnt say cause but contribute to

removing the oils and drying it out isnt going to split the ends in itself just make them much more easily split cause of brittleness

butyour right thats just semantics

Okay. Our water is really salty and hard because the well isn't the right depth. Hopefully I'm moving soon though, there's no room for a baby here!!
