Do you have any advice on how to comb out older tighter dreads? I'm struggling a bit XD

update: so I have brushed out dreads and made new skinny ones. I have around 40 something now. There's just this one dread (the first one I made, significantly older than the rest) that's way too fat but its super tight and no matter how much I try to comb it it won't come out. However on the root there is a very obvious partition as if it were two separate dreads forced into one my question is will it naturally separate into two smaller dreads over time or will the two separated sections just continue to grow together forever or until I use whatever last resort it takes to comb it out?

Some of them I'm unsure of the root area because they're kinda all linked together and I can't find the ends. But the dreads themselves don't seem too fat so I'm assuming they'll be fine. I've brushed some out and tnr them again and I hav around 40 dreads now, hopefully that will be fine now :)

Totally normal. The thing I've learned so far is the best thing for dreads is time. They will all work themselves out and dread up. You're only a few weeks in so you have a long ways to go. I'm almost at 2 months and the ones that fell almost completely out are looping up beautifully! Just keep on being patient :)

Yeah that does sound like a better plan as they're not all really fat. I'll do that thankyou for your help :)

Anna said:

instead of taking them all out, just comb out the really fat ones and split them into 2 or 3 dreads. :)

too hard to see guesstimate the root areas size

Hey, I'm a newbie. My dreads range from around 2-5 weeks old as I didnt do it all at once. I basically used youtube tutorials to do the twist and rip method such as galapril's tutorial. I thought I was using the size sized sections of hair as her but I've only came out with 19 dreads. (I haven't dreaded my fringe/bangs and there is a section which could potentially be 2-3 dreads but I have a blue hair extension thing glued in at that part and that reeeally doesnt wanna dread up. Basically I'm just worried that I don't have enough dreads or as they mature theyre gunna become dangerously fat or whatever. Do you think they look normal for baby dreads or should I take them out and redo them? (sorry the quality isnt the best)
