hello all! so my dreads are about 2 and a half years old. When I first got them I would palm roll for roundnenss due to what others had suggested. I did this for about a year and then decided to let them do their thing. Let me first say, I do like the results of letting them do their thing. However, I have a bunch that are starting to go flat. It's kind of unappealing to me when most of them are (i dont mind a few). Anywho im rambling, I was wondering if there was anything I could do to roud em out. Also, I was wondering, is there a way I could prevent the new growth from flattening from maybe rubbing the roots (gently, not root rubbing.)? I know dreads will do what they want, and that's fine, but sometimes it's just a matter of slight preference is all.Thanks in advance!

I forget who said it but there was someone who suggested using a tshirt (not sleeve but whole shirt) to make it so that your hair would sort of be laid out behind you when you slept. That sounds like it makes sense but I never tried it.

it could be that you sections are rectangles rather than squares...when i started mine i jus grabbed chunks of hair and now alot of mine are flat jus cause the section at the root is a flat rectangle shape...other than that idkCharaxesdistanti said:
I never tie my hair back especially when I am sleeping I hate it. I don't know why mine are flat, I also move a lot during sleep.

I have about 3 flat ones due to the way they formed and congo'd. Beads seem like the best bet if it really does bother you. Otherwise I'd say learn to love the elipse shape. :)
