Oh so joyful!!! Some advice!?

Two days in and my curly hair is separating and getting all nappy.

I couldn't help it though, I found a curl in back that was just begging to dread and so I twisted and ripped it to a full beautiful dread. I've done two more this way and they are so pretty. I'm finding it very difficult not to finish off the rest of my head this way.

I want to leave them alone though and let them dread all by themselves with the exception of separating them occasionally.

Any advice or just words of encouragement to keep my hands away from my head.

There's nothing wrong with T & R. If you want to give it a go then you should! If you're wanting natural/neglect dreads and just finding it difficult to remain patient, just forget you have hair and throw on a tam :o) Either way it will be a while before you have dreads. Best of luck and Many Blessings

I was the same the first couple of days. I twisted and ripped a couple in but now I've left my hair it's only been a week and 2 days and the rest of it is seperated and just as knotty as the t n r bits. Your hair, your choice but it happens way quicker than you expect. Good luck on your dready journey :) x
