Hello everyone, this community seems really nice ive been looking through the fourm for a month now i decided to finally sign up.
I never intended to grow dreadlocks, I have really curly hair and always comb it but in the back it would get so tangled id just give up at the ends. I started to form a dreadlock on the left side of my hair in the back towards the end of my hair since it would always be so tangled. I ended up combing it out but another started forming on the right side a month later and i decided this time i wanted to keep it, But i do not want my head all dreads i just want this 1 dreadlock.
I just let it go for a few months and it took shape of a boot almost at the end i did not like this so i decided to cut it and make it blunt at the end. The dread however never made much progress dreading up the hair towards the scalp, Its only dreaded about 2 1/2 inches up from the bottom so i decided to put a rubberbands to hold it together. This was most likely a mistake i realize now, I ended up cutting 2 of 3 rubber bands off but kept the one near the root, When i remove this one the hair instantly comes untangled all the way to where the hair is dreaded.
I was looking for advice on a few things, If i just leave it alone will it eventually dread to the scalp and somewhat even out or will i have a skinny at the top then fat dread at the bottom?
If i have just 1 dreadlock thats inside of long curly hair, Will i have to worry about it getting too big? I dont want a giant dreadlock hanging out the side of my head lol
Should i remove the rubber band near the scalp? I've removed the original rubber band up there for 3 weeks and the hair showed no signs of wanted to gather toghter at all without combing it.
My dread is really curly since the circumstance, Should i worry about that at all?
Thank you for reading this post, Any tips or advice is greatly appreciated.
