ofcourse many here have natura;ized or what we call natural surrender dreads when you start off maintaining then surrender to the natural proces
no seperations a good idea if you dont seperate u get masive dreads only those who feel spiritualy or religiosly bound to zero maintenance dont seperate at akll
Separating is manipulations. But it's not bad. It doesn't negatively impact your locks. It does help make them more comfortable. They'll lay better on your head and feel more natural.
