I don't know if this is just part of the process of having natural dreads, but I am about 4.5 months in an my dreads just seem very.....blah. I can't seem to find a word to describe it. There are a bunch of loops and stuff (and the loops look very cool individually), and my hair has gotten about 6 inches shorter. I feel like I still have a lot of loose hairs also. I also feel like when I separate them it caused more loose hairs. I have started separating them only once a week or so. How can I make sure them separating them isn't causing more loose hairs? I posted some pictures also to show everyone how short they are (there are pictures on my profile of my hair before it was dreaded to show you how long it was)
Is it normal to go through this bleh period? And is separating my dreads increasing my loose hairs like I feel it is?
