Root Separating

I have currently stopped crocheting and root rubbing.I am just washing and separating. I have a question about separating dreads. Should I separate the dreads right down to the scalp or should I just separate the body of the dreads and leave the roots slightly connected?

Cheers

U should go down to tge root, if u leave that connected, those two dreads will just re-congo. U wanna do this after a wash though, dry separating hurts like a bitch!!!! Lol, youll notice that after a while, they wont congo as much. Good luck n blessings Kat.

^ What Supa said! I pull mine apart after I wash them. Just pull until you can't bear to pull any further. Eventually you will notice a network of hairs connecting the roots, this is normal, healthy, and necessary for natural locks. Personally, I like the way it looks too because there's no scalp showing.All my best!
