Hey, ok so Im a little OCD and analytical but I'm trying not to be such a perfectionist. Especially when it comes to my new baby dreads. I had them back combed no products.Im just curious if I can go ahead and wash them its been 4 days and im ready too. the salon said not to but we all know how much they know. Can someone give me some expert advice. Also they are starting to loosen and im afraid they are going to come out...not all of them just the big ones in the back. and I have a lot of fly aways...thanks :)

No..lol i dont want them to come out. I dont think they will they are just getting a little looser since i got them done some days ago. thanks for the advice i read some of your comments before i signed up and you seem to know what you are talking about!! should i ware a cap or just leave them down when i wash? should i palm roll them like she said or does that loosen them?

Unfortunately...they're probably gonna "unravel" a bit. =/ Anyone here will tell you that dreading requires *tons* of commitment and patience. They get frizzy and knotty before they get dready. It's annoying at first, but if you rrrrealllly want them, they're absolutelypositively worth the wait. :)

The salon probably didn't tell you, but they are going to come apart pretty much, and they should, that is the only way they will actually dread, backcombing is not dreads, there are no knots yet, it is just pushed back hair, it will knot, it just takes time, you will get alot of loose hair, you will have to accept it, or you will have a really tough time, and it cannot be controlled without damaging your hair, backcombing is pretty brutal anyway. I would recommend getting dreadlockshaampoo.com 'lockin up' liquid shampoo, it is excellent and helps the best and safest way. You don't need to do anything else except wash them and keep the sections separate from each other.

peace and blessings and enjoy the chaos, it is worth it, much love.

My best advice would be to go as long as you can before washing your hair. When you do wash use a soap with no moisturizing properties. Think irish spring dry if you have ever used that stuff. Wearing a tam in the beginning stages will help a lot with the fly aways especially if you dont want to use any bees wax. it may seem daunting now but once they havetaken root you wont really have to do anything. Good luck.
