All my dreads are being crazy!

All my dreads are either folding in half or flat or splitting in half part way down the dread. Will it hurt for them to for this way? Or should I intervene?

They are completely free form, I didn't do anything to force them. All I've done is wash and separate. Let me see if I can get a decent pic.

It started as one dread and then the ends split.

Those should be fine. Sometimes they split, and stay split. Sometimes they completely tangle together into 1 lock. The folding is normal. Not everyone experiences it. But it generally doesn't hurt your locks at all. Keep any eye on the tips, though. If they start to get blunt, you may want tointervenea little. But if they stay pretty wispy, let it ride

None of mine folded over, but some did just blunt on their own. I took some jojoba oil and massaged it into the very tip of my lock and gently brushed it so it was wispy again. I have one of those "old man" brushes, where the bristles are close together and kind of stiff. It worked great and didn't do any damage that I can notice.

Or you can use the jojoba oil and massage it in, then, by hand, try and loosen up the tip. Your hands will get pretty oily, though.
