if you don't separate they can get too fat for comfort & care (difficult to wash), even form a unidread. if you want fat locks you can, but they require a certain amount of special attention (check out babas post on caring for them).
my hair also seemed to lose all progress each wash for a long while, after enough time knots will finally stick through the wash. just keep waiting

Hello, I've got few questions for SE...
Why would you separate dreads if they start to grow together..? That should make them more fat and unique and you keep saying to let them grow, I can't aree more, so why should we do it? ...just asking
And I'm just starting to grow dreads all natural but many times when I wash my hair it ruins the locks and I have to start again. What should I do?
