What to do with this loose hair


Dread Maintenance

I haven't had any maintenance done on my hair for about 5 months now.. problem is now I have all this loose hair sticking up. I don't mind having loose hair, it's just that it sticks up and doesn't seem to be knotting with the rest of the locks.

I'm sure in time it'll get long enough to just fall down, but I think it might be light enough to always stick up. Anything I can do to help it lock up or settle down? Does it get better with time?

Dreadlocks knotting together at roots


Dread Maintenance

Hi all.

I've had my dreadlocks now for about 10 months, and I've never really had a problem with separating them.. until recently. 

I used to have them crocheted but have since stopped that since about 4 months ago, and obviously because of this method I could see the sections clearly.

Now however, my scalp is a mess and I can't really see the original sections for each dread.. 

Every time I separate, I'm snapping hairs left, right and center and even had to break out the scissors to separate on a couple occasions. 

How normal is this? is there anything I can do in order to get the sections back or do I just need to keep separating like this, and how often? 

Thank you!

Hi everyone


Introduce Yourself

Heya, was just wondering.. I'm getting more and more loose hairs coming out of the dreads.. now they're still pretty tight, so just wondering if that loose hair will ever go back in? Even after 6 months of no maintenance.. of which I'm 2 months in.

Also, I have to wear a dreadsock made of 90% viscose and 10% elastane. I need to as I'm a gardener so there's loads of debris and dust from hedge cutting and blowing. Will this impede the process of recovery or is the material damaging for the dreads? Is there any alternative thats better..

The more I think of how fucked my dreads are the more I want to just cut them off.. which would be devastating. Don't think I can comb them out either. They looked like they've been tied and interlocked throughout and tight enough I couldn't even get a comb through..

Hi everyone


Introduce Yourself

You've decided to comb yours out? I thought that would cause more breakage to the hair more than anything.. I guess not though? 

I think I'm just going to let mine do their own thing and not mess around with them too much, besides washing/drying/conditioning.. I'd like to see your progress though, if you can manage to keep updating.

Mine are getting more fuzzy and loose every time I wash them.

Hi everyone


Introduce Yourself

I'm new to all of this and not at all as clued up as i should be.. I know I just wanted dreads for a really long time, but I'm starting to see the cracks (praying that will not become literal) of rushing in and getting them done in a salon. 

Fortunately, wax was not used but they told me to use a hairspray(?) instead.. like, actual hairspray for styling. I didn't need to be clued up to figure that's not a great idea.

Is there any shampoo you would recommend? Sorry in advance if this has already been answered. 

Thanks also for the spray suggestion.

Hi everyone


Introduce Yourself

I'm literally in the same position as you.. have practically the same hairstyle too. 

How goes your progress? I also fell into the mistake of getting my dreads retightened and crocheted twice.. last time was the 9th of December. Had them since the 5th of August. 

I'm extremely worried, as I work outside and have to wear a dreadsock in order to stop them from getting dirty and I feel like it will impede the process of locking naturally.. I also tend to tie them (as loosely as I can) backwards when I go out but leave them out at home and when I sleep.

Some other information: I wash them once a week with Neutrogena T-Gel 2-in-1 dandruff shampoo and use a leave-in conditioner spray.
