Seperating & sectioning

5 years ago
4 posts
Hey I'm at week 4 of mah dreadies. People are telling me I should have sectioned my hair first..? Is that true? I am a little worried bc I feel like my hair is only creating very large dreads.My question is how can I get them or make sure that I will have smaller sized dreads too? I don't want just like 5 huge dreads on my head, ya know.Also, how often should I be seperating? Is once a week good?

no need to pre section but separate if they are forming too big

and it depends for most weekly is fine some need to daily at 1st if its dreading fast

I have super dry hair so I normally only wash it once a week.What if the big dread is formed already and it can't be separated? Just leave it?

At 4 weeks, they shouldn't be mature enough to not separate at all. You should be able to find some part of them (either at the tips or, less ideally, at the root) to rip apart. I know "ripping" sounds aggressive, but it's easy. I have 2 vids on my page showing how to do it safely
