Just keep separating, and you'll be fine. If you're going all natural, let nature do the work for you. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey!

it looks great, just keep em separate, they are sectioned up nicely, of course they will probably decide to change, as mine just did, lol! ']

Mine are also having that problem, i have to separate them every day or my head is one big dread. But i get a lot of loose hairs when i pull them apart :(

i start with tnr and they were in nice sections over a month ago! i don't really care much about section and i don't worry about much when it comes to dreads but i just didn't know if this was going to turn out like a big mess in the long run.


evelyn, i got tons of stray hairs too now. i don't mind them though. they will dread up. my worry is that no matter how much i seperate hairs from one dread are still in another!

Creeping is going to continue to be an issue until the locks fully mature. If any of them get too big, you can always split it into two.  Vigilance is key though, is there anyone that can help you groom the back of your head?

see how 1 dread has hair comming from an inch away?

if u kinda pull a few hairs at a time oi]=out of that area  so you dont have that lil umm dread coming into the main dread anymore those hairs u rip out will release the dread and will be lose hairs there that then become a new dread when long enough
