Ideal Way/Time to Separate Locks?


Help! Save My Dreads

Thanks for the advice. So it's ok if there's hair tangled from another section at the root? It won't grow into a congo? They are fairly mature (considering they are 3 months). I combed one out that was too big and made it two and it took me a half an hour! For one! I really don't want to start over :/

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!

Help! Is this normal?


General Questions

The sections are only an inch, but it's stilled knotted from the TNR except the roots and tips and above where it's knotted it sort of fans out.

3 inches wides wide it dont matter that they are flat and wide but 3 inches covers a pretty wide area ansd may someday pull painfully

it is up to u what to do just know the shape dont matter at all only concern would be the wideness and how it will pull

General Questions

Thanks for the advice. I'm thinking I will just leave it alone. I'm kind of attached already. And if in a few months they don't knot up tighter I'll comb them out then I guess? I just think that I need more than 47 (I recounted) dreads or when they shrink they will be HUGE probably. I guess we'll see.

General Questions

Basically at the root of my dreads they are wide and flat. I am worried that my hair doesn't like how I sectioned it because some of my sections are kind of big. Some probably an inch and a half, maybe just an inch, but I have thick hair. So should I comb out the bigger sections and let them do there own thing, or leave it? Will that flat wide section tighten up? Or will they be that wide? They are about three inches wide the way they spread out. Hopefully I'm explaining this so you guys know what I mean. Thanks for the help!

I have heard that you actually detox the first few weeks, and depending on your diet before you feel like you are varying degrees of sick. I already eat about 50% raw, but I love cooking so much, that's the hardest part for me!

I can totally relate. Ever since I chose to dread my hair I felt my vibrations rise, and I feel more concious in every way. Next step....eating 100% raw! That way you get the vibrations and life force from the food!
