Split hairs?

Hello Dreadies. :)

Previously I have made a topic regarding my dry and brittle hair, but now I am wondering about whether or not split hairs will have an influence on the hair´s ability to start forming dreadlocks and tightening them as well?

A girl with dreads that I happen to know, told me that it would probably dread better if my hair wasn´t so damaged, but the way I see it, wouldn´t the large amount of frizz just aid in the locking process?
Maybe I´m mistaken, but I´d like some clarification. :)

Thanks.

well healthy hairs healthier for sure but  dry damaged hair tends to dread faster

it wont be detrimental to the locking procews or overly detrimental to the hairs health  the dryness and brittleness maybe an ongoing concern though

I must admit that for the past 2 months while I´ve been waiting for my hair to grow out to a decent length, I´ve been using commercial hair treatment, conditioner and shampoo. Despite this, my hair remains as dry as ever. Naturally, the chemical coating gives it the illusion that it´s a tiny bit more moisturized, but it really remains the same. I´ve also been using coconut oil and jojoba oil to a great degree, but with no remarkable results either. I´m wondering if perhaps what my hair could be lacking is proteins? If this is the case, I assume making some kind of egg mask with oils would prove to be beneficial to some degree? I might try this tomorrow.

It is, however, very revealing of the commercial hair products, since they don´t live up to their promises whatsoever. I´ve recently changed my diet to be mostly vegan, but it will take a long time before my hair is long enough to see if this change has made a noticable impact overall. I´m really wondering why my hair insists on being in such a terrible condition at all times, haha. It baffles me.

panterra made a suggestion for me mix coconut oil  mashed avacado, and maybe some aloe  or jojoba   make a hair mask coat the hair, leave it in and covered with a plastic bag 24 hours then wash it out

I´ll make sure to buy an avocado tomorrow as well then. :) I probably can´t leave it in for 24 hours, but I´ll go for 2 hours tomorrow and maybe overnight in the weekend or something.

My hair definitely improved a small bit after trying out the 1 hour of coconut oil/avocado/egg hair mask yesterday. It´s hard to visually tell, but I can definitely feel that the texture is slightly better.

Perhaps doing this with some degree of frequency would help bring this back on track.
