im afraid i found this site too late but im hoping you can help me.
I wanted dreadlocks so i gre my hair from shaved for about 9 months then i shamefully fell into the DHHQ trap.
I went along with the sectioning and the backcoming (which im not sure is too bad) but i used alot of lock peppa and then knottyboy wax. almost instantly i regretted the wax and never used it again.
I use dhhq soap which seems to keep my hair clean. I also spray my dreads with a water mixture with peppermint, tea tree and rosemary oils, and have debated about putting sea salt in there.
however i have two dreads on the back of my head that have started to come apart, one completely. On my forhead the hair is starting to thin and the front 4-5 dread have visibly thin roots, typically with one stronger side of the roots. im scared that they are going to snap off, ive even had a horrible nightmare about it which scared me enough to seek help...
please, is there anything i can do.
