Dreads came out completely?

So my dreads came out completely. Like they are not knotted or anything it's pretty much back to how it was. I'm not really sure what to do. Should I put them back in?

I am new to this but I am also thinking that the way you did you dreads might matter. Which method did you use?

Hm... you could check out the page on methods... but I don't know what to do about that. I started with twisted/backcombed/palm rolled dreads, and I couldn't keep up with them. I felt like my hair was getting more and more damaged the more I "fixed" them. So I untangled them and put beads in a few TnR's yesterday, and the rest I'm letting it do natural. I have a feeling though that yours you will just have to leave alone and let them dread out now... but I could be wrong and someone else could have something to say. lol. :)

no need to put them back in since u never had to put them in to begin with they will dread on their own but if u do then stick some beads in them and if they come apart again do nothing just wait for them to dread

backcombing tends to fall apart ioften tnr can too just not as often if done well but if they fall apart it dont matter they still dread right back yup

but lets examoine a few things

  1. is your hair oily?
  2. did you touch or play with it much
  3. how are you washing (technique)
  4. how are u drying
  5. what did u wash with
  6. how longs the hair

i did tnr also....they came out two or three weeks later...i had a dozen more put back in and i rubberband the tips...they stayed in and im just letting the rest of my head do whatever and it seems to be working alot better...first i notice seperation and the other day i noticed one lock in the back of my head....so my suggestion is to listen to everybody else and just be patient and do nothing but wash every two days....i should of did the same instead of tnr and breakin my hair.....

My hair isn't oily it's kinda dry actually

Yea I did mess with them quite a bit

i just washed them with a non residue shampoo. I didn't scrub them really I was pretty careful

Sometimes i let them just air dry other times i used a blow dryer just a little bit

The longest part of my hair is 10 in. the shortest is 6in.

Yea I think I am going to TnR again. That sounds like a really good idea =]

Do you think you are going to TnR them again or let em go natural now? Bead idea doesn't sound bad. If I were to TnR I would fold the ends over (the loose bit at the end of each lock) and slide the bead over it.
