Just wanted to say hey and thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge and experience on creating healthy dreads!

I'm 6 weeks in and I didn't discover this site until after I had started dreading sadly. I went to a locktician because, through word of mouth, I heard that is what you are supposed to do. Two sessions and won't be going back. Feeling pretty bummed about it at this point, but I'm hoping my dreads aren't too damaged by what she did. Luckily, she hasn't overtighted my roots, but I have some loose spots in my dreads and some that thin near roots.

I can post pictures once I get some better internet, but I wanted to get some assurance on a few things.

Will shampooing and separating will be enough to fix the spots that didn't lock in the middle of my dreads?  My hair is very curly and the weak spots end up getting strong curls, so it makes my dreads look a bit weird, like bent, in spots.

Some of my dreads are going flat. I used to use crochet hook to fix them with palmrolling, but since that damages them, what can I do to fix the flat ones? They don't seem to be as tight as the other dreads, and I think they are going flat due to the fact that I sleep on them.

My dreads are very frizzy especially after showering. This is probably normal right? I just wash my roots and scalp, is this correct for baby dreads?

Thanks again for your time and energy on this forum!

Our guru, Soaring Eagle is unplugged right now but he is usually right on top of questions, comments and concerns. 

Read up on the Guides and Pages under the Forums heading. All of your questions will be answered. 

I'm a newbie myself, only four months in. But I think you should get some of Vicky's shampoo at , let your hair do it's own thing. Just keep the roots separated. Our hair is as individual as we each are, the knots, twirls, curls and flat parts.

it is my understanding that the flatness will eventually round itself out and is part of the process. It just takes longer than being forced into a created "loc" instead of allowing the hair to interlock itself.

Relax and let it happen!

41 posts and forget about them. Just wash with her shampoo and quit worrying about your locs. They will go through stages of change and work themselves out. And definitely forget the loctician.
