OK, so already my dreads are going on month 4. I've noticed with a few of them, they don't seem to be that tight while some of them are very tight especially the ones in the back. There's this one that I was looking and it seems like it's unraveling. What's going? Is this normal? I started my dreads using the two strand method. Well, I think that was it. I know if I "leave them alone" they will eventually tighten back up, but why is this happening and could someone explain exactly what it means to "leave them alone"? Like...Don't touch them or....? Sorry. I have tons of questions,and this journey is going rough so far.

I've only wore my dreads out once,and that was like a few weeks after I started them. I don't even know what to do anymore. I really want dreads, but I'm hating them so far,and I don't know what else other hairstyle I'd love to rock besides dreads. Damn me.

When you said you've only wore them out once, do you mean you had them covered or tied back? If you tie them back all the time it can make it harder for them to dread, or if you wear a hat that's not loose or whatever, so maybe it's that?  Besides that, the back tends to dread quicker than elsewhere (at least, it seems that way for most people). Don't worry about it looking like it's unravelling. Like you said, it'll lock up and tighten on its own. Leaving it alone means...don't look at them all the time and fussing about them, touching them constantly, messing with them, etc. I know it's hard because four months feels like forever, so you want huge progress, but all the little things that you think are wrong are making you worry about things that you don't really need to worry about. Four months isn't long at all, so if you do want dreads, you'll have to be patient and try to forget about your dreads for a while. Once you stop worrying about their progress so much, you'll notice that they do seem to make progress more.

Is there wax or anything in them? Are you wearing a hat All the time? If there is wax in them you got to remove it. And stop wearing the hat all the time. They need to hang loosen fly in the breeze

probly both

and the fact they are just on month 4
