Separating Question

Here is a photo of my hair at 2.5 months of neglect. The underside (mainly loose hairs, not such defined curls) are beginning to knot, but the top still hasn't (I understand I am early on in the journey). I have been separating the natural curls, for example: 2 will start curling together (this happens with many) & then I carefully separate them to an individual curl. Do you think this is hindering progress? Should I let them curl together? My concern has always been that they will end up too big. Thanks to anyone and everyone for their input..

I actually have a similar issue going on, the difference is i now have some sections that have lost any locks or knots all together. My dreads are only about one month old,twist and rip.I don`t have any answers for this but i thought i should let you know "you`r not alone"! ;p :) good luck and happy dreading!

Hey PineWik! Thank you for responding! It's nice to have this community to ask questions & to share the journey. From your photo, your dreads are starting out great! The only maintenance I do right now is wash with Vicki's Locking Up shampoo & then separate daily. I guess will just continue doing this & use my best judgement with their sizes, unless anyone else gives me different advice. You should post more photos so we can watch your journey. :))
