I'm new to this forum, and i'm not sure if i'm placing this thread the right place(?).
I come from Denmark, this is why my english ain't the best.
2 of my friends from school, made my dreads the 21. december 2012. I love the hair, and i was very happy for them the first 5 days or so. Im still happy for them, but i'm starting to get worried.
Right now it looks like a birds nest. Or shitlocks as some would call it. There is alot of loose hair (i can live with that) but the dreads themselves is getting looser and looser.
I'm not able to crochet hook(?) them, since i think they are too loose. But im not sure if i just have to force it ? Tho it seems like they are getting loose by hooking them.
Most of them actually seems ok at the roots, but it's mostly the last 20 cm of the hair that's loose (my hair is 23-24 cm).
As you can see, the ends of my dreadlocks is not fixed yet. Could this be the reason why they are getting loose?
I use around an hour a day "rolling" the dreads between my hands, but it haven't really helped.
I hope you have some inputs, thanks!
