Good day fellow mates, nice to see there's such a forum in regards to dreadlocking. First of I'm Asian and have very thin fine straight hair. I recently started dreading by using the back comb and palm roll method for awhile. I realized that the top knot was very loose and decided to re-tight it by making another knot for some dread. Somehow or rather it worked and now I think I can feel its dreading. Next of, I've been washing my hair every 3-4 days now. I only recently started washing more often after I came across this forum after reading a few post. As I wash my hair, i noticed that there is many hair strains coming out of the dreads thus making it not dreaded and just dangling like how a thin fine hair should be. Will that just freeform and dread into it?I am not sure if I'm doing it right. Here's a pic of my dreading and my hair. :D Any comments/helps/advice welcome!

hi, well having loose hairs is part of the process yours will be fine just will take some time

i see the knot you made..that was a bad idea!!!

tying a knot in a dread is likely to cause it to break..at that knot!

don't worry about them getting loose, looking less like dreads, or having lose hairs...or even falling completely apart

just keep washing and leaving it alone and it will dread

Thanks! Should i try to take away the knot or just leave it as it is? By the way, im currently residing in NZ and was wondering where can i purchase sea salt spray for my dreads. Would it be better to spray em? Cause my hair isnt dry.

yes undo the knot if you can and sea salt can be bought in most stores then make your own spray

I just hope from now on everything will be fine. I find that if i keep back combing and then washed my hair it doesnt help a lot. Just keeps on gg back to the original state. Guess its better to leave it and let it do its magic

Sweet! Now is to do the sea salt spray. When would it be a good time to spray? How often?

spray about weekly

spray an hour  or 2 before you wash

its not needed but does help

don't overdo it

just sticking some beads in here and there i think helps more then anything else out there
