...I found that my loc had loose hair sticking out everywhere, not just frizzies, but peices of hair. What did I do wrong? Or is that normal? My hair is 4 inches long at it's shortest parts, maybe 5 at its longest. (layered and permed)

After I tried the tnr I did just that, left them alone. I haven't combed my hair in two days and no conditioner or products. I have gently put my bangs up in a clip, though or I can't see. lol I partially did it just to see what would happen, like an adventure. lol This feels so foreign to me! When do you get used to it?

You won't know when you get used to it, or become one with them. It just happens. Then one day you wake up, or are eating a meal, in school, at work...whatever. Your hand will drift up or something and you'll realize 'I have dreads, when did that happen? When was the last time I thought about what's going on on my head?' Then you kind of obsess about them in other ways. What kind of beads, wraps, decorations to put in them. New ways to tie them up, braid them, create new styles with them. That's (for me) about the time that people really start to notice and comment on your beautiful locks.

Let them be, they will be fine in the end. :)
I love the feeling of being connected to my dreads. I had a set before these about 4 years ago and I had to cut them due to mold from living in the rainforest for a bit. I felt so different without them and needed them back. Got em back a few years ago and I never want to cut. They are a part of me and always will be.

Thats how youll feel once you get use to it :D
