Dreading Methods

Thanks! I wash with dr bronner's 2-3 per week and I have never put any product in my hair besides bronner's. The one on the side I tried to comb out and broke the comb. I reached a point of no return and had to use scissors to get it loose. They are only stiff where the interlock knots are. I guess I'll just let it ride.

Dreading Methods

I know it's a different thing but I started my dreadlocks with a twist and interlock about ten months ago but have done absolutely nothing but wash since then. I'm considering chopping my hair at this point a starting completely over with the free form method. I had a huge Congo on my right temple that i tore apart about a month ago and now can see three locks forming out of my crazy curly hair. The back of my head locked up very well, the front however is stiff and funky. There are tight spots from the original interlock and they are pretty flat. Like I said, I've done Nothing but wash and air dry since the initial mistake of interlocking. So I'm wondering if the flat clearly interlocked dreads will eventually compress and even out or if I should just chop and start over? The other factor is I have to pull my hair back for work (as a carpenter) I'm sure that has an effect on the process of dreading but would that also cause the stiffness and flatness? I don't mind my hair looking crazy, that's kinda why I started dreading in the first place, just curious if I've done irreparable damage or not. Thanks and sorry for the novella.
