simple stop touching them do a sea salt spray they are plenty long enough to dread on their own if u stop messing with em and give em a lil encouragement with sea salt
Yeah, maybe "bangs" is the wrong word. Its just hair that is missing out on being dreads ha!

I don't have bangs, like completely undreaded ones, but I, also, have a bunch of loose hairs around my hair line. In fact, one of my locks right there is about a foot long but is only holding on by a really thin root (if I squeeze it with 2 fingers, the touch like nothing is in the middle). I've tried everything to keep them together. It's not close enough to another lock to combine them.
If they are long enough, you could put a bead over 1 lock and pull the loose hairs through with it. You could try TnRing them to make small locks that will eventually be pulled in to others
My dreads are well over a year old, and I love them more than ever due to the support and advice I havereceivedfrom this site.
My question for you is how do you get your bangs to dread? My hair isnaturally very fine and soft and I have a lot of loose hair around my hairline/bangs area. I know that dreads "pick up" the loose hairs over time, but due to the amount of movement and brushing my hair out of my eyes I just cant seem to make any progress.
So how do you deal with the loose hair and/or how did you get them to join into your other locks?
The reasons i dontcrochet: 1) a crochet needle is stronger than hair isflexible, thus,logically, hair will be broken and THATS never good. 2) My dreads are waaay to dense to fit a thick needle through, let alone a freakin hook!
best advice i can give u is to chill out! the reason ur scalp hurts is because ur doing soooo much matinence! just chill out and try to stop thinking about ur dreads, and when u do think of them positivly! love your dreads for what they are. just smoke a bowl and reeeelllllaaaaxxxxx )
if i were you i wouldnt worry. the more u worry the less of a fluid experience they will be. but ya. tye em loosly or wear a wool tam or sumthin like that. i've read that ponytails actually help the dreading proccess but u gotta separate more or else you'l get a mono-dread lol
