So.. I decided to go the natural route with my dreads. I'm actually surprised how fast there locking. My dreads are 3 weeks old now. My only concern right now is a spot where 3 separate dreads have gobbled each other up in the very center of each of 3 original dreads. I don't wanna cut it or rip anything that's not absolutely necessary. I don't wanna wait to long and have an even bigger blah spot haha. I'm having issues with leaving my hair down all the time. It's pretty long.. I can't help but instinctively wanna wrap it up or clip it & I think that's the biggest reason it's matted the way it is now. I'll post pictures if someone is willing to help me out haha i'll show you the tornado!! ADVICE IS APPRECIATED!!

LOVE ;P

I am 3 weeks in to my dreads too! I am having the same problem. Keeping my hair down is tough. It looks crazy!I have long hair too. I feel like my dreads are forming into 1 big dread. I don't know how often I should seperate them?

Hahaha I understand!! Mine's not all one dread, it's just two spots have bigger dreads that have naturally split apart into 3 separate locks. I'm so shocked at how far my hair's already come in just 3 weeks.. I wanted to try to break them apart but i'm not sure tehehe.. that's what going natural's all about.

Ours went really fast so we had to pull apart everyday. his got a beavertail in like a week, so we had to end up cutting it because we didnt start ripping early enough. Definitely separate early.
