Separating...

So I have 2 good sized babies that were started with t&r about 3.5 months ago and it looks like they have been slowly starting to separate at the root and are about half way down to the bottom, I have tried to rip them (gently) the rest of the way down, but they don't want to budge now. Each section is dreading nicely (separately) so my question is should I just continue to rip them as I can, or will they eventually finish dividing themselves? Thanks guys!

i haven't needed to split anything yet but i would definitely ask knottysleeves. she has experience splitting some of hers so she might have some insight that will help you.

They were about 6-7 inches down from the root. I can tell that they are trying to separate cause the sections were huge. I think the t&r is still a bit tight, and they are just having a hard time loosening up. I only maybe could pull maybe an inch. I guess I will just wait it out, I think it's cause I just noticed not too long ago. I will post a pic tomorrow.

Thanks guys... I got one of them separated today with some coconut oil... I am going to just leave the other one be since it looks like it's working its way into 2, or maybe once its more loose I can try a little more.

Knottysleeves... ya, you're right, my hair just disagreed with those sections!

I let my hair section itself before doing anything, but when I did some t&r I never looked in a mirror, and I must have grabbed 2 sections on those 2. Seems like for the most part all the sectioning is fine, just those 2 were disagreeing.
