[quote="Peaceful_Passer"] Yes as SE said, the loose hairs will not be as dense as the knotted hairs. It takes a few months/ year or more for some before the locks get down forwards the scalp, it will happen. I don't suggest separating while wet, your hairs are more likely to break as you're describing when they're wet! I usually wait til the next day when my hair is completely dry before separating.
@peacefull passer ...hmmm will try separating when dry next few washes then. I've also been separating damp and feels a bit like I've "overseparated" at times,
