I'm so lost and frustrated. My hair isn't locking up at all and just looks stringy like I just got out of the shower. The locks that I did have were looking good but now are coming apart for some reason. I am seriously thinking about cutting my hair off it nothing continues to happen. It's like the longer I wait the less my hair dreads.
what r u washing with how also drying
do u tie m up alot
do u messwith em alot
how long is the hair
details will tell us whats interfering'
ids it oily?
looked at pics they are dreadin just slow ,, but beads..beads will help alot
lerave it loose more just dont push it out of your face being in a tam 24/7 wont let it move
washing 1 dsay less often makes it less oily
if its oily aqt 2 days wash every 3 then when its oily at 3 wash every 4
having a tam on all the times not helping
also with oily hair hot wash..cold rinse that will seal the pores so they dont pun\mp out oil
i would leave the tam off alot ..as much as u can
dont use rubber bands use beads and if its in your face leave it in your face its that simple
and u dont go straight from washing every 2 days to every week u steop it back 1 day u dont gotta go to a week either 4 days is fine but if u wash every 2 with greasy g\hair it will always be greasy it will get lres greasy if u slowly steop it back to wash less wash every 3..untill u arent greay at all the day u wash then wash every 4
if you can go 4 without greasiness your fine

SE when you say don't push it out of my face there's one problem. It's always in my face. When I had it braided it wasn't a problem, but my hair isn't in sections anymore it's closer to straight than it was a few month's ago. I tried to wash only once a week but that was a disaster. My hair felt like it was soaked in grease. I can't see myself ever doing that again. I just don't see how hair can be clean after a week of not washing. When washing I'm still confused on how to wash just my scalp. I rub the shampoo in my hands and use my fingertips to rub my scalp but no matter what my fingers run through some of my hair. I can't see any way around that.
Thanks for the advice I will keep going. And thanks Timmy too for encouragement.
I am leaning toward doing another TnR session on the parts of my hair that hasn't dreaded yet and putting rubberbands on the ends. A few of my dreads came by way of just putting a rubber band around a section of hair and waiting.
why do u have to just leave it where it is but everythungs wrong with rubber bands!
1 they cause weak spots and dents
2 they undo progress after only days because kniots form around em and taking them out takes out the knots
3 they can be completely swalowed abnd rot inside the dreads
they canmelt into a sticky gross mess inside the dreads
they can cause dreads to vbreak
they can break leavung peices inside the dradsto rot
get beads and try diferent sections till yu find 1q it decides to live in
