how skinny is to skinny?
Hi guys! I wanna start off by saying you guys are seriously awesome and im so glad to be apart of such a dope community! Ok so now the question. I started my dreads on the 17th of july. I have pretty long/thick hair but only have 40 dreads but they arent even that thick? is that normal? also, The bottom layer of my hair, the dreads are perfect size and are already starting to get tighter. However, ive had to redo the top layer about twice now and at the root, they are a little bit skinnier than a pencil. But as it gets to the end, it is VERY skinny, probably a little bigger than the led in the pencil but not by much. Im worried my hair wont dread. Should i add hair or see what happens? also when should i use shampoo? will they dread faster if i wait a month or will the oils in my hair make it looser? Thank you!
