I split many large dreads in the back that had a mind of their own - instead i left it up to the smaller dreads to congo. The back of my head always has more texture, and the sections are forming very quick. Most of the backcombed sections in the front are sticking around. However a few did split and are continuing to do so. At this point I would consider my dreads neglect (with a starter method) to level the maturity between areas of hair that dread quicker than others... The backcombing method, as everyone had warned me, was just to help my hair keep sectioning. I did get lucky with a few sections on the top and front that seem to be in their natural sectioning. At this point I will not and cannot control any dreads - the ones that split into their own sections are knotting quick just like the back (which could not be controlled).
