I started my dreads about a month or so ago and one of the roots completely undreaded  about halfway down the dread and it sticks up when I’m not wearing a hat / don’t have them pulled back. What can I do to fix it?

What does it look like when you're not holding it up?

If you mean it kinda bumps up like if you flipped your hair over a different way that it’s not used to lying then I have a few of those at the crown of my head. Remember that now your hair is dreading, all those knots are going to make some strands of hair shorter as they’re all looping about, that’s going to make a dread look a little crazy and bumpy til the other hairs catch up. It’s normal and it’s a good sign! If you used a starter method, remember to not do it again because you’ll just be undoing progress, unknotting, loosening and tightening is all part of that process, so if you backcomb or twist and rip or whatever again, you’re just making a temporary fix and it’ll loosen again because that’s what it needs to do. Just give it a little time, it’ll sort it’s self out 😊

I've got a few that do this. The crown is the worst area for it for me. And the back of my hair. I think its perfectly normal I just leave them alone.
