To comb or not to comb...

I have been considering combing my hair recently, ridding it of all the knots and not yet fully-formed dreadlocks, but only to start over again using free form. I’m just hesitant about it. 

My hair at the side of my head (on one side) is literally just one matted mass of hair, and I imagine if I let it dreadlock it’d become a carpet dread because there is no way I can find to separate it into sections. It is at least 4 inches wide. It is the bottom layer of hair, there are mini dreadlocks forming on the layer of hair over it (if that makes sense?). 

Another problem is, there are no dreadlocks forming at the back of my head, except at the very bottom. Not sure why, I use salt water quite a bit.

Peace.

Pics? How far along are you?

I've considered combing out and starting over just because i wish I'd freeformed. But then i consider just how long it would take, and how much time i already have invested and i talk myself out of it.😂

I’ve been freeforming for about 8 months, give or take a month. Like you, looking at how long it takes that’s why I can’t decide whether to just leave it. I thought my hair would knot up a lot quicker than it did because it’s naturally curly and very thick actually, turns out it prefers to mat rather than to dread LOL. It’s getting to the point where I have to pull most of them apart everyday now which is kind of irritating.

I don’t understand it though, because looking at yours and everyone else’s on here (freeform or just TnR) they kind of go all the way up the hair (if you know what I mean) but mine are all at the bottom, kind of at the base of my head but not at the top or anything, very, very weird. Kind of hard to describe. I’ve got a few photos but it’s difficult to take pictures of them at the back because unless I lift them up you can’t really tell they’re locs.

I really don't understand how often people awkwardly try to describe their hair when they could just post pictures.

Here are some (terribly taken) photos.

I tried to take a photo of the matted part but you couldn’t really see it in the photo.

Some better photos. Just sprayed some salt water on them. They still look more like curls than anything though, I think.
