Confused on separating and knotting


Dreading Methods

but once your hair completely sections itself , you will find it a lot easier to run your fingers "through" (in between sections) rather than as you normally would finger comb regular hair. c:

Dreading Methods

my hair is also very damaged and dry and coarse from over dying and such so my hair matts up very much like you are describing !

naturally wavy dreads??


General Questions

My hair was relatively straight but slightly wavy before going neglect/freeform and my baby dreads are VERY WAVY/curly which I love! I don't want them to straighten out and become regular boring dreads one day! Will they stay wavy like this or slowly become cylindrical and straight no matter what over time?:(

Dreading Methods

If that is too confusing, then just grab the sections by the tips (preferably when wet) and rip up toward the root instead of running your fingers through and possibly pulling out hairs that didn't need to be pulled

Dreading Methods

hey dude I think I can answer this. I am about two weeks into freeform and if your hair had already naturally sectioned itself, it is fine to run your fingers between the sections to help keep them separated, just don't stuck your fingers through them and unknot the sections themselves, JUST the hairs connecting them to other sections. It is a little confusing at first when they aren't fully naturally sectioned. I have to stop my mom on the daily from running her fingers THROUGH my baby dreads.

Is it okay to separate the sections this early? My hair pretty much sectioned itself immediately after a shower and so should I leave the sections be for the first few days or should I be adamant about making sure the little sections stay right away to prevent congos? My hair is very coarse and wavy so it tangles faster than most

If I go about letting my hair naturally section itself, will it interfere too much to "guide" it by resuming my usual asymmetrical parting? And how often would you suggest separating to keep from getting the crazy three dreadlock thing you had? What if my hair starts matting in big clumps, and when I go to separate it, they fall apart after ripping them apart?

Is the timeline much much longer for neglect vs otnr and such? because my tnrs were dreading awfully fast, despite the horrible rubber bands. I would love to see them start dreading on their own! I know my hair can do it, it is so coarse and somewhat wavy. But even though I dropped the brush months ago, I didn't wash my hair at all, hot water and high pressure shower head was all that kept my hair from dreading before. (except a few baby locks at the nape of my neck that I stupidly undid to start my first set) Is shampoo and separating really all it takes ?
