Well, I had dreads done less than three days ago with the backcombing method, and I used wax. After coming across this site, I've decided not to use it anymore (only used it that one time). Anyway, the thing is, some of them are pretty loose now, pretty much just like normal hair. Should I just leave them anyway and let them do their own thing, or is there something else I can do to help them get tighter?
Also, my hair is pretty wild and frizzy. All of them have like the "body" of hair, and then a huge amount of hair just sticking out all around it (not just at the root, but from the root to the tip). Will this go away as they lock up? I don't expect or want perfect dreads, so I understand they won't be perfectly round and have no hairs sticking out, but there are probably hundreds in each part, so that's quite a lot. Would I be able to smooth more of them out as they tighten?
I know it's only been three days so I sound paranoid, but most people on here have done it naturally and their dreads still look so neat and everything, so I'm just wondering if my hair being all messy right now is OK, if it'll get better and still lock up
Oh yeah, and one last thing (sorry, I know it's a lot): I bought the KnottyBoy shampoo for my hair, it says it's all natural and I have eczema, and it's literally the only shampoo I've had that hasn't hurt my scalp. Is this OK to use or will it cause problems?
