update 1 year dread anniversary, and month 13. BOB GNARLY LOCS
I rock a headband pretty much everday cuz i cant see without it. My hear blocks my eyes now that its gaining length. I hate it. You can also try out parting your hair in differnet ways, and you can try braiding or twisting the locs together off to the side and around the ear. I have been trying some new things.. our hair looks pretty similar in length. I cant pull mineback yet. It sucks, cant wait to be able to make them lay backwards.
Why didnt you like the BS.acv wash?? ive had bad experience with build up using other types of shampoo save for neutrogena anti residue, which is only good when used sparingly. Its a harsh soap.
Pics could help, I would imagine that if you have stopped twisting them up, they will recover on their own. Maybe
I would wait till your dreads are more mature. SInce your dreads look really young, i bet it would be hard to make the extensions blend into your hair without looking obviously like extensions. Ive heard extension hair dreads really fast so the bottom half of your dreads could be really dreaded while the top reamains the same... IDK.. I had extensions at one point, and am contemplating adding some again. but its so much work! I may just be lazy and patient.
i like to lightly twist my loose hair around the nearest dread with just water and pin it till it dries. It helps my loose hair noticeably. Many oare against twisting, but i dont think its too bad if your gentle and you dont use bad products. take it with a grain of salt, but it helps me. I do it about once every two months. IT really helps them from congoing at the roots as well. It may not work well if your dreads are really tangled at the roots already though..
