Ive worn my hair long since adolescence, and have been dreading it for 7 years now. When I started them I used wax to do about 4 or 5 in the front, this was the extent of my maintenance. My remaining hair was left long in the back. It ended up dreading itself after a few months(don't ask why, long story). Most of the rest took form fairly easily, albeit not perfect. My roots we're never done well and there was undreaded hair a centimeter or two betweenbmy scalp andmy dreads. Up until about a year ago, they all stayed fairly uniform and were more or less separated at the root. At this point many have merged together, some I am unable to rip for fear of pulling too hard. They are all pretty much dreaded together at the root, large flattish mattes. I can reach fingers under and feel there is less hair growing from certain parts if my head. Ive always been fearful of maintenance since I didn't really know how I got my hair how to look how it does(I do look really good) so Ive always been afraid to let people mess with them. I'd like to find someone experienced to help but I wonder if it's already too late. Am I screwed?
