Need some advice, 3 dreads combining into 1


General Questions

There is a gap between my scalp and the "orgy" (as I call it) that is just loose hair, so I think once I get them separated I'll be good! Thanks again

I've got a video on my page showing how to rip locks apart. The sound my freak you out, but if done correctly, it doesn't hurt your locks. The most important thing to know is NEVER EVER rip them all the way to the scalp. Just rip until they don't rip easily anymore. After that, let them be. If they still look like they are connected at the roots, that's fine. They should be

Thank you for your input. I've always read to "rip" them apart...but that's such a scary though!

Rip them apart, unless you want a super fat lock. I love them, personally. I've got a bunch of locks that are mad of at lest 3-7 other locks congoed together. But fat locks take more care to wash and dry. They hold moisture longer and can cause mold issues if you're not careful.

General Questions

My dreads are 3 months old. They started with backcombing and a little T&R. Since they were initially "started" I've learned a lot, and have just let them be, going natural. I did do a little rolling after I'd wash them, just to keep them organized. I stopped even doing that after a while because I over-think everything, and the more I messed with them, the more I convinced myself they weren't going to work.

SO, what brings me here, is I now have 3 babies that are pretty much combined into one at a point about 2" or so from my scalps (see photo). I'd really like to separate them, but I'd also like to inflict the least damage. Any input is appreciated! =)
