So I'm 3 weeksinto my new dreads, and I'm really excited about them.
I used the twist and rip method and have absolutely no product in my hair. I use aloe vera to tame the frizz in the morning before going off to work, and I wash with Dr Bronners 2-3 times a week.
I've read a lot of things about the first stages of dreads, but I just want to make sure...
Last week my hair was tightening up pretty well, but now they're loosening a lot. One dread in the back came completely out, and I had to re-do it. Not a biggie, but I want to lock these babies up as best as I can.
Should I backcomb or palm roll them?
How long will it take for them to tighten?
I know I might be stressing, but I just want a little reassurance<3
