First off, I have really fine hair. I've had dreads 3 times. The first two times I was misinformed and was told to use wax and backcombing. The 3rd time (my current set) I crocheted my dreads which I am now regretting. I even did a bit of maintenance with crochet hooks. I lost my crochet hooks. (thank goodness) so I'm forced to do nothing. I did at one point use the pull-through method, but I took them all out. I also do root rubbing which now reading about it on this site makes me scared for my dreads!
What should I be doing with my dreads? Just the occasional separation? I'm worried that my roots won't lock up without the root rubbing. Will they?
And is there anything I can do for the loose hairs or should I just let them be as well?
I've had this set for a bit over a year and I plan on having them for a very long time.
