Tidying up dreads??
I totally agree with SE dreads tend to tighten up better if you leave them open as much as possible so that they can move and knott up freely in every direction.
but if you want to speed up the preoses a bit you can put a towel on youre pillow that can help the frizz and the loose hair to dread faster, though i would recomend using a towel that hgas more or less the coulour of youre hair.
if its still to slow for you you can take the loose hair strains and form kind of mini dreadlocks by tear and ripping them. This helps the loose hair to dread into bigger dreads more easily or if you separate them every now and then it can also form new dreads. alot of my thinn dreads where formed like that.
for the bumbs and loops if you dont like them or feel they look to messy i would recomend putting beads on the spots you want to look better (i personally love loops and bumps), this also can help if you feel that a dread is too flat.
but keep in mind that these methods can all cause harm to youre hair and it is probably better to be patient and dont do anything, but if you still want to do it be wise and dont overuse them especially withTnR the loose hair.
on the other side the thing with the towel is not that harmfull in my experience, i have done that for years and i havent noticed any damage by now
however keep it up and be patient and keep in mind that next year by this time you wil have marvelous dreads or even sooner.
