I want to let a couple of my dreads congo. As my dreads have grown, they've gone thinner. I don't mean they're progressively thinning, just that when I first 'started' them they were thick, and since they've grown from then on, they're a bit thinner. I can only guess my hair has thinned a bit because of all my scalp issues. I don't know, but anyway, that's why I want to let them congo a bit, but was wondering how big (or small) a gap between two dreads is ideal for congos? I mean, I know too wide a gap between two dreads will probably be painful, so is there any advice people can give, or am I being too vague?
