Yep, it's really that easy. I notice that if I go a few days without separating mine, they start joining together, so I separate mine once a day or two days. It depends on how quickly your hair does it really

Is it a good idea to put those mini hair elastics around the sorta/baby-dreads that are formed? There are some locks/baby dreads that I really like, in size and location etc, and I want to keep it that way, so I've put an elastic on each to keep them. Bad idea?

ninono no elastics at all evder

bad idea

just seperate anything that tries to join it

elastics after just a ciuple days will undo knots in a week they can become swallowed entirely they can melyt they can rot if u must ue anything use a bead never elastics

thety can cause indentations that are weak points too

take em oit right away
