Couple of questions..... so its been 4 or 5 days of no hairbrush now, and they are starting to seperate at the bottom, and Im getting some matting at the back.....I look a bit like a magpies nest but never mind :PNow with that matting at the back, should i be leaving it a while to progress before trying to seperate parts, or should i be doing it now?Also, I have been washing and leaving it to dry naturally. Should I blow dry? Will that help or hinder the process at this very early stage?

at the very beginning
I didn't start separating until they formed up a bit more than what you are at now. As long as they are not forming together at the root you should be fine. If you are really worried, go ahead and separate them it shouldn't hurt, just don't overdo it.Also, until they start to become more solid, there is really no need to blow dry. That very well might blow apart any babies that have formed and hinder the process at this stage. As long as your dreads are drying at a good rate, basically as long as they don't take more than a few hours to dry, then you should be fine without blow drying.
