That. Don't know how you don't find that absolutely irritating. I think i've lost like 15 of those little balls that just end up falling out and my hair starts over.

@femalepheromones i have pretty thin hair and really wanted that fluffy thick looking dreads look

@pantheri had so many of those end knots that eventually just ripped or fell out and pretty much started from scratch. I don't think I'm washing rihgt. I'm probably scrubbing too much. I try to flip my hair over to the front and try to let any loose hair run to the front since it seems most hair loss is coming from the back of my head, b ut any help or advice is welcome

@soaring-eagle i have shown him pictures of peoples damaged dreads from crocheted, i've showed him pictures of the inside of peoples dreads when they use watch or use non residue shampoo and he acknowledged all except crochet. It took forever for me to convince him to remove the rubber bands from his roots, he kept them on for about 2 months. He won't bend on crochet though. He claims and was told by a really popular dreads shop that as long as the person crocheting your hair is careful not to be too forceful, then you'll be fine. I try not to argue, his hair is his, mine is mine

@soaring-eagle both, crocheted mostly though. His dreads are not even a half the size of his sections. 

@femalepheromones it's not that I want a lot for bragging rights or whatever, it's just that I wanted dreads for the purpose of making it look like i have more hair on my head, so I figured more dreads would give that illusion

@panther do you have any techniques for how you wash/scrub/rinse your hair?

I really wanted to be at 40 plus. My twin brother has 37 and his sections are too big and too tight, too much space between dreads and look very scalpy

is there any advice on sectioning and how to keep tnr from coming undone? When I first tried, I went tnr, then after they came undone, I brushed whatever I had and went neglect

@femalepheromones is there a certain way you sleep/shower so that they don't come undone? The area of your hair that's dreaded for me, just simply wont dread.

should i decide to comb them out, what would be the best process for that? should I soak my hair in conditioner for a certain amount of time and have at it or try to under the knots from the root by hand to try to break the least amount of hair?

I'm at about 9 and half months, and from about 4 months, there has been absolutely no progress or change. If anything, the knots at the end of my hair are too heavy for any knots to allow themselves to form closer to the root. I'm really considering brushing my hair out. I'm not sure if I'll try again. It's been really frustrating. I washed 2-3 times a week, left my hair alone, never ran my hands through it and tried my best. I used vicki's sea salt and shampoo. I was really hoping my hair would dread neglect. If I do decide to do them again, I might go tnr or get them started by crochet and chop off the crocheted part as they grow. Any last advice I can get from everyone?
