well, i know that the webbing at the scalp should definitely be separated. you don't want to be able to move one dread and have all of them move along with it.
when i separate i go from root to tip and rip anything thats attaching to other dreads around it. i don't do it too often though because it tends to set my progress back but with your t&r dreadies i would do it after every wash just to keep everything in order while they mature.
thorough seperartion tips
1 pull dreaes in oposite directions when wet to rip the connecting hairs
2 if they dont rip lil olive oil in the web can help
3 try slipping a finger under connecting hairs that wint rip (only few at a time) and oull up (nchor hairs pulling painfully by pinching them so u can break em without pain (too much)
4 once u seperate as thorough as u can take fingers press against scalp and push hairs towards the dreads
im probly not being too clear either
