Tips balling up and linking
My hair also likes to make little u's. It was kind of like 2 dreads were holding hands. All the loose wispy parts would join in with each other, which was pretty annoying.
It has sorted itself out now but when it was going on I would gently seperate after washing and then sort of twist the ends together to dry using my finger. It helped to the the flyaway a little until it dried. Now that those dreads have w inches of dread and aren't little knot balls at the bottom they don't catch nearly as much.
Hope this helps
That's a perfect description. They are holding hands! I love it. Thank you and hello fellow NC resident. I'm in the Piedmont area.
On another note I know separating too often too early can be a bad thing but I think I'm going to have to keep on top of mine. I found an area about 2 1/2in by 2in near my right ear that had matted together pretty fiercely. I'm not a huge Congo fan but especially not in an area like that.
