Italian hair is pretty thick and wavy. What are you washing with? Do you touch your hair with your hand? Even just running your finger through it?

Post a pic by either clicking the "upoad file" link at the bottom of the message box, or there is a picture of a picture 3 boxes in from the left on the tool bar in the message box. That will let you just embed a picture right into the post

u totaly can but stop doing what your doing u got 2 good options

best option stop using products stop conditioning stop toucj]=hing it completely

wash every 2-3 days with the baking soda mix or a dread shampoo if dread shampoo only carefully scrub the scalp not hair let it rinse thry=u the hair

spray with sea salt once a week 2 hours b4 u wash

it will start to dread at 6 inches if its not at 6 yet take biotin supliments its a vitamin b that nakes hair grow faster

option 2 if its min 4-5 inches twist asnd rip it then leave it alone wash as directed above

either way as it dreads they may yr]try to combine into thicker dreads so seperate as needed

go to any pharmacy ask for biotin its just a vitamin b b6 i think u will have to take it for months for it to start to work in about 2-3 months tho the hair wil grow twice as fast

search the site for baking soda

if its 3 invc=cher u might try a biotin enriched shampoo wit=ch will help it grow too until u gaitn a couple inches

but u might get lucky and yoir hair might dread at 3 inches it looks like it will to me
