I know that other people have posted about this before, but last night I realized how real the problem is..The hair on the sides of my head isn't really dreading. I T&Red them to encourage natural dreading at the roots, but that's not happening. The T&R fell out all the way. This is completely different behavior from the rest of my hair, which started dreading at the roots right away. I blunted the tips to lock the dreads in place until they were established, but last night I found three that had fallen out, and were almost completely straight--again, with no real dreading happening at the roots.This is week 16 for me. I have a good inch of dread growth everywhere else, but nothing is happening on the sides. If I were going the natural route, the hair would still be straight.
