This is hard to explain... My dreads are over a year old and I mostly do nothing with them. I was using crochet needle on them once every month or so but haven't in a while. Some times I do the clockwise rubbing at root. I go to gym about everyday and I wash my hair 2 or 3 times a week. I have noticed here lately that my roots are not dreading up. They sort of are but it more like in strings within the dread. I do not have a picture at the moment.... when I pinch the dread between my fingers its almost like i feel four or five mini dreads within. Some of my dreads feel like this for 2 inches worth of length. I am scared that they will never dread properly and stay loose and stringy. I do not know how to fix this? Has anyone else experienced this?
-Also My loose hairs that I have been fighting since day one.. are still loose at scalp and 6 inches long or more. Any tips on how to get these back in at the roots and make them stay there?
**Extra information... My roots may be staying too moisturized but I do know that my tips have been really dry here lately.
