So I've technically tried to form dreads three times, this time being the third. First time was pure neglect and was horrible. I got a rats nest and it just wasn't very pretty because my hair tangles easilly. Second time I went to a salon and they separated and backcombed but I felt unattractive and wanted my regular hair back. So this time I've decided to do what the salon did but save some money by just doing it myself. Everything is going fine, granted it's been about a week. But I feel like I can't just wear my baby locks down without a hat or something. You can see my scalp in the back and I feel like it looks horrible. I got synthetics to add in because I only have about 20 or so naturally and wanted to thicken things up, also thinking it would help in the back. It did a little but it still looks bad. Will this go away once my natural hair locks up and i can remove the rubber bands? Or am I just screwed because of the sectioning. It was like this when I got it done too, now it just looks a little bit more wild, which I don't necessarily mind. I'd post a picture of the situation back there but I just couldn't get a good one. Any advice would help, thank you!
