anything u do to the roots weajkens the rioots and halts dreading u never want to do nothing to the roots ever leave em alone they take care of themselves but they tajke tiime
they will have to be loose for months to tighten up u cannot do anything to the roots
they must be left alone only seperared
they will have alot of looseness till they get tight thats normal and necasary itf u remove that looseness u renmove the space they need to move and dread..so u replace dreading with fiorced knotting that makes themweak and often break..
the entire dread depends on strong undamaged roots
so leave them alone!!
