Been towel rubbing for almost 2 months. If I stop, will my hair continue to lock up?

It's been a week since a towel has touched my head. I've washed twice in that time and let my hair dry completely natural. Already it looks so much better. I'll hold off on pics until a month or so has passed. I've got some 2 soaps arriving from your store which I'm looking forward to. I've also got a lot of locks that are much tighter than they was before.

Quick question though. Sometimes I feel dreads locking with other dreads. I'm ok with that provided they don't feel too fat for their length. I separate them if they don't feel right to me. What's a recommended thickness to avoid super fat dreads? I quite like the size of soaring eagles. They're spot on.

1 inch max (at the roots) mine that  literaly are all sizes up to 1 inch

for most of their lives the average thicknes was pencil sized with 1 1 inch and 3 or 4  maybe 1/2-3/4  and the thinnest being 1 mm x 2 mm (barely) (coulda measured in microns for more accuracy) that 1 was actualy 3 ven thinner dreads congoed  and was 4 feet long when k found it

i stopped separating for the most part after this photo

I had to double glance because you got a squirrel sitting on your head! That's awesome. How did you manage to keep him there?

I can only dream to one day have dreads like that. I love that dread wrapped look too. Does it feel heavy on the head when wrapped like that?

Thanks for the advice :)
