Questions about new natural dreads
Oh I can pretty much dance on any kind of music as I am a profesionnal contemporay dancer Rainbow sure looks like fun!!
I have just started natural dreads after a bad episode of crochet dreads which I combed out. I have questions about maintenance and stuff.
When do I start separating? Only when they actually dreads? I have curly hair so they all get together in a big mott.
Can I massage my scalp when I wash my hair without rubbing the hair too much?
Can I touch my hair? Like, if they are all up in the air in the morning, can I flat them with my hands?
I also have thin hair naturally but the crochet made it worst (lost a lot of hair), is it ok fo me to start this journey now? I started 3 days ago.
I have decided to comb out my dreads which were made by crochet and had extension. There felt fake and it did not feel right! On top of that my scalp was screaming to be free from this dreads that were too tight. I knew that I lot of my hair would be damaged and fall off but I prefered to comb them out and start from new. There were a lot of added hair in my dreads even mixted with my own hair so maybe that helped protect a bit my hair. It was hard for me to see which of the hair I took out by combing was mine. Anyways, the result is not to bad. My hair is more thin but it looks still healthy. (see picture)
Now I am going the neglect way and I am super excited about that. I want to grow old with my dreads. I have a few questions ;
are they long enouph to dread?
All I do know is wash and not comb?
Since I used a lot of conditioner to comb them out, should I wait a bit to start the neglect way?
