Day 3 and need advice.
Hey Samantha, it is completely normal for TnR locks to loosen. you actually want them to loosen. If they are too tight it will cause a number of issues. I've also read here on the site that there should be loose roots. I am growing natural locs but did try an experiment with TnR on one section that seemed like it would take a long time to progress. I was not happy with the result, and took it out after a few days. It just kept getting tighter and more rough. Now that area that had a TnR is section in a whole different way (not from the TnR but from where the hair naturally wanted to go.
So yes, it is ok to be that loose. your scalp will thank you later. Hope this helps, and I'm pretty sure someone else will chime in on this topic. Hope you have a great day! =]
Also, it is good to wash, Clean hair dreads the fastest cause oily hair does not like to lock into knots. Pretty soon all the stray hairs will find a home. Generally, I've read that people wash 2-3 times a week. This allows your hair to dry properly between washes so you don't get rot/mold.
