Good day fellow mates, nice to see there's such a forum in regards to dreadlocking. First of I'm Asian and have very thin fine straight hair. I recently started dreading by using the back comb and palm roll method for awhile. I realized that the top knot was very loose and decided to re-tight it by making another knot for some dread. Somehow or rather it worked and now I think I can feel its dreading. Next of, I've been washing my hair every 3-4 days now. I only recently started washing more often after I came across this forum after reading a few post. As I wash my hair, i noticed that there is many hair strains coming out of the dreads thus making it not dreaded and just dangling like how a thin fine hair should be. Will that just freeform and dread into it?I am not sure if I'm doing it right. Here's a pic of my dreading and my hair. :D Any comments/helps/advice welcome!
Hello! Gabriel here :)
hi, well having loose hairs is part of the process yours will be fine just will take some time
i see the knot you made..that was a bad idea!!!
tying a knot in a dread is likely to cause it to break..at that knot!
don't worry about them getting loose, looking less like dreads, or having lose hairs...or even falling completely apart
just keep washing and leaving it alone and it will dread
