I have just started natural dreads after a bad episode of crochet dreads which I combed out. I have questions about maintenance and stuff.
When do I start separating? Only when they actually dreads? I have curly hair so they all get together in a big mott.
Can I massage my scalp when I wash my hair without rubbing the hair too much?
Can I touch my hair? Like, if they are all up in the air in the morning, can I flat them with my hands?
I also have thin hair naturally but the crochet made it worst (lost a lot of hair), is it ok fo me to start this journey now? I started 3 days ago.
