Dread tips keep coming loose

I've had my dreads for about 4 weeks now and my biggest problem is that the ends keep coming loose. There was one I found yesterday that had come undone about five inches... I have very thick hair. Used the TNR method. Help please. Much appreciated.

Love <3

All of mine came loose, they are all dreading well now. I agree with SE, they dread great when left to knot up on their own, it just takes time. Loose tips make a good path for water to drip out of them after a wash too.

I have baby dreads too and I have found that banding the ends of my dreads has been working. They all say it does take some time. I'm keeping that in mind during this process. It's hard but they will form in time. Don't give up so quickly. The outcome will be well worth the frustration.

It's hard not to re-tnr the long loose ends but I'm trying to resist. Plus I have no money to buy beads so that doesn't help.

Thank you so much for all the advice and support!
