T&R, can't seem to get knots close enough to scalp
Loose roots are a good thing. It enables the hair to move around and knot up properly.As your dreads start to mature and form, the loose hair at the roots will become less and less, but it's something you always want.With my first set, I did everything I could to get the dreads starting right from my scalp and regretted it straight away. It was tight, uncomfortable, gave me headaches and made me feel like someone was constantly pulling at my head. I took them out a week later.
