stop defining "looking good" by salons standards salons push salon dreads look like your diseased with all the scalp showing
dreads should be left alone washed and seperated thats all they just look good naturaly
if you keep going the scalp around them gets traumatized the roots weakened thety can break you canget traction alopecia and even baldness
wash..seperate any that try to join thats all
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 9 feet long
Have you ever noticed that when you get your braided it shrinks a little? Well the same things happen when you twist dreads because they are all forming together. They are not going to be as long as your original hair unless you are caucasian and follow the method that they do. Just relax and let them grow stop worrying. Im not going to tell you to avoid getting them retwisted at a salon but you do not need to go often. If you do go wait until you have two inches of new growth.
