the halo ..ignore
that will form new dreads on its own as it f=grows some will join dreads to reinforcing them just leave it be
the palm rolling does the most good and harm while wet hairs more elastic but more easily damaged and broken wet thats why its recomended to seperate while wet
id just shake em out then drip dry
oh blunted tips make them dry 5 times slower on average if the tips were left loose water runs right out the tips blunt tips hold water in
Don't do anything about the halo around your roots. In time it will settle down. For now you need those loose hairs in order to snag new growth and other loose hairs to get sucked into already formed locks, or to form new ones of their own.
To get the excess water out, don't roll your locks. You can gently squeeze them with a towel Try not to twist/wring them out. Just firmly squeeze them. The towel will help soak up the water that seeps out
Welcome and Happy Dreading.

Welcome. Unfortunately, crocheting, even occasionally, is the most damaging thing that can be done to locks. More so than wax. Wax can be washed and scrubbed out in time. All crocheting does is rips your hairs into smaller and smaller pieces. This can't be fixed. Because so many hairs get broken with each pass of the hook, it weakens your locksconsiderably. There have been accounts here of people having locks snap in places from crocheting. It also makes your locks too tight and stiff. The most mature locks should not be hard. They should be soft and spongy.
If you haven't crocheted much, good. Hopefully your locks can be salvaged. The longer people maintain their locks for, the less likely they will last them for years.
As far as palm rolling goes, stop. Now. If you don't palm roll often or hard, it does nothing. No lasting knots are formed. They look nice and neat for a few hours, but once you wash or sleep, it goes back to the way it was before. If you palm roll enough to see progress, it will severely damage your locks. I started 5 of mine with palm rolling every day for the first 2 weeks. 6 years later I am still trying to fix the damage:
welcome but crocyhets extremely bad fir dreads (rollings no fgood either) crochet will just break tons of b-=hair creating the need for more crochet plus delays progress by 6 months if only done once
its 1 of the worse things u can do to dreads besides felting
Gently rolling them in your fingers won't actually do anything either. It kinks up your hair a bit, but won't make thm any rounder in the long run.
When you sleep, they get squished in 1 direction, when you roll over, they get squished in another direction. Over time, the will get rounder. Some may stay flattish, but they usually round out. That usually depends on the shape and size of your section. Sleeping is where the tighten and round out most, though. The few minutes a day that you finger roll them doesn't add up to much considering that it takes a few months for anything you do to become permanent so long as there are no other variables. In that time, other things will happen. So the 2 minutes you spent rolling them will either be reinforced, washed out, or covered up by everything else that goes on in those emonths
