Awesome thank you. I think my biggest problem is when I start feeling for knotsI start picking too much. I just need to find a way to altogether forget I have hair and not touch it so much.
Alright guys. I got a question for ya. The only reason I ask is because I don't trust anyone else with dread questions. I've tried to stop questioning the process. However, I need to figure out if I'm hindering progress. I'm at 6-7 months and the back of my head is just starting to so some separating. Okay so I notice that some of the sections wanna join together and thats gonna make a big dread. Like a 3 incherlol. A lot of its happening at like the nape of my neck. Anyway. I tend to pull them apart and mess with my sections a lot. I feel like I should probably just stop, and I try so hard not to mess with them at all. Should I just leave is alone, and if end up with some huge dreads maybe separate it after it has dreaded? Or is this what I'm supposed to be doing. I'm eternally grateful for advice you've given me, and advice I'll need in the future. Thanks so much. I'll add a picture of the backbut you can't really see the big sections I'm talking about. All that goes on kind of undercover of the other sections and loose hair.
I thought of another question to add to this. Is it a bad idea to TnR the natural sections? My was way shorter in the back when I first did the TnR.
Awesome! Glad to hear it man.
So I've had more progress since I've posted this just by keeping it in my hat. I thought keeping it down and out would have created more nots bit I've for some more messiness going on in the back of my head now! Thanks everyone
Dude I say wait it out. My hair's about the same length as yours. Im at 7 months and have no knots in the back of my head at all. The only reason the front is, is because I twist and ripped it. All the back fell completely out, no sections or anything. It's just now starting to section slowly. As soon as I thought about re twist and ripping the back. That's basically cutting cause I would've started it all over. We can get through it together, lol.
Exactly man...so much deeper than hair, than a look. A whole life changing experience that's absolutely 100% free. You can't learn these things in a salon, you can't learn to let go and live if you're covered in wax, trying to control what happens. I gotta cut this short or I'll go on forever lol.
Free has been great so far. Not only are my dreads healthy, but I get to watch them change almost daily. It's a journey...that's for sure. Wouldn't have it any other way.
