So I'm beginning my second set. I had dreads for about 14 months before I had to cut them off due to personal reasons. It's nearly 3 years later and for the past 6 months or so I've let my hair do its thing. Slowly, but surely knots have started forming. Mostly in the back and closest to the hair line I have some solid beginnings. My first set was started with a dread perm, back combing and mistakes. This time its natural. Since the rest of my head is slow to form, with some areas not knotting at all I have a question about helping them along. The free formed dreads try to pull in everyone from everywhere. I separate the best I can. Does anyone recommend grabbing a bunch of the hair that doesn't really want to join the party by twisting and rip method or continue to wait and wait?
