Help! Save My Dreads
Hello everyone. Im in need of advice/support. i started my dreads with dreadhead wax almost 2 years ago, i went onto DHHQ and was convinced wax is how you make dreads...well after a year and a half of over waxing, interlocking, crocheting*, and even taking scissors to my dreads. I realized wtf i was doing, and wanted to redo my dreads and start new, but without shaving my head. I combed out my dreads to the scalp getting all the mess and nastyness out (it took me a week) and backcombed them back in. I believe it caused alot of damage to my hair, but now they are almost 4 months old and feel great! Ive been washing them with baking soda/sea salt mixture around twice a week but my over all confidence in them is low, they dont look like dreads, but they are there! Im letting them grow out, get healthy, and do their own thing. Alot of the tips arnt locking up, but i think its mostly because my hair is naturally straight. In general ive become impatient at times and subconscious about how everything is going to turn out...
