I have a few that balled up, too, and I was starting to worry. I think part of it was that I tried to put beads on too soon and I have been separating without holding on to the other dread, causing the hair to pull up. I combed a few of the larger balls back out and set myself back a few weeks, but I think it was best for me. I'm glad I saw this post and the replies - I'll be better about leaving them be for a while. Reading the responses made me feel better about it. Guess I still have to work on being patient. ;)
