Ideal Way/Time to Separate Locks?
Help! Save My Dreads
I was just going to write something about separating too. My dreads are 3 months now and they keep knotting up at the roots (which would be good, but they are getting all tangled together). I try to separate them a lot, but for some reason they just tangle up in the roots so much so that I have to pull hairs completely out of the dreads just to separate them. It hurts, because I constantly have hairs pulling. One spot that I sleep on is getting worse and worse even thought I separate them it's like a rat's nest in one spot at the roots. Makes me want to just comb them out and start over because I think my sections are too big. They are an inch about, but I have very thick hair. I don't know what to do? Any advice? I've come so far I don't want to waist the time I already put in, but if this is going to be a constant problem? I have loose hair that's not in any dreads that is long and they always seem to get tangled up with the wrong dread. What to do? The knot is so big connecting three dreads I don't know how to untangled it without shaving my head or combing them out! Help pleeeeeeaaaaaasssssssseeeeeeee!
