actually in a way i think u should be glad! That just means u didn't T&R it too tight. If it's done too tightly it seems to end up looking braid like and i can't imagine it's too good for the hairs? (no offense to anyone, i know cavewoman likes the natural look) So they will unravel a bit and lock up in just the way they are meant to!!

this is true =D I'm rounding 4 weeks and I'm starting to see loops and kinks and lots of loose hairs and I'm lovin it =] I guess unraveling roots is just one more thing I should love about my hair. My friends kept telling me to use crochet hooks and to root rub and wax and this and that, and I don't blame them, they don't know any better like I did before I found this site.I'm glad I found this site before I did them or who knows what crazy stuff I would have done to my poor hair. If I hadn't found this site I would have never known that you kind of want your hair to go crazy cuz that means it's doing what it needs to do haha. NaturalWomyn said:

The majority of mine look alot like that. I'm putting faith in SE & just leaving em, slowly slowly they are becoming knotted closer to the root. I left quite a bit of length up there when I tnr'd tho. Once I got a dread underway I think I must have started twisting too much cos some of em do look braid like. Will this sort itself out in time? Also, if I wanna use a bead to help a section lock up, do I put it above, below or directly on where I want the knots formed?

some of mine look like this too, mostly in the back. i'm not worried about it, but it looks like shit so i haven't been wearing my hair down. haha...i've also been really careful about keeping them separated back there so they don't start a huge dread orgy on me. i've palmrolled them gently a few times mainly to make each section a little more defined so i could tell what i was doing when separting. seems to be helping actually.

ya i actually split this one because as it got older it just looked like a lot of hair and the root was split in two. so i figured, take it apart and make it into two. they're a lot less trouble now but they still have some loose roots.not too worried about it anymore =]
