So, neglect dreading here and I'm wondering about when to start separating. I keep reading "when ROOTS start matting together is when you should start", but mine are knotting at the tip end mostly. I somehow managed a few dreads (not sure how that happened), but most are only at the tip and when I separate those, they either end in too thin dreads and/or clumps that fall out. Should I not be separating yet? Ok, so like for instance, I have a huge matt of hair right now, not really sectioned, just afro-like, should I let it knot some more? I mean, it's very thin fine hair...I think I will try letting it go a day or so, see if that gets more root clumping together. But, of course, insight would be nice.
oh! also, do you separate root to tip or tip to root? or?
