i started dreads (twist n rip) bout a week ago...they became really loose so i decided to start over..i want not so many and thicker dreads...today i started re-dreading...started out back combing now back to the original method...i don't plan on washing as much and WILL have patience...i know they will loosin up i just gotta go w it...i'm a massage therapist and taking an herbology course..so far i had good feedback which was totally unexpected...the people here don't know what locs are! haha...anyways i figure if i can be myself and let it show it gives others confidence to be themselves too :) love u all

Welcome! I had tnr "dreads" for about 2 months, before they loosened up and came out. I know the frustration you must be feeling with the process. I have learned, through the great folks here, that backcombing is awful for the dreading process. I'm letting mine go naturally. If you want some great tips (I'm not sure what kind of hair type you have), but I posted a topic titled "Heartbroken"... I got a lot of great feedback, perhaps you might find something useful. :)

Happy dreading!!

Apparently it is very common for tnr to loosen up.If you areconcernedabout looking unkempt while you go natural, get a pretty head cover, like a tam or a wrap.Panterra Caraway made me a BEAUTIFUL tam, for a VERY reasonable price. You could ask her to make one for you. :) Don't get discouraged if your tnr or backcombed sections come undone, they willloosenup and tighten up andloosenupagainover time. You should check out the FAQ section and come back here often for awesome support. :)

My knots started out similar to yours. Some of mine are back combed some TnR a couple of braids and the rest left to neglect. I really did not intend to start that way, it just kinda happened. It is interesting to see how they matured starting with different methods. It was almost an unintentional experiment.
