That was actually one of my questions over there that never got answered! I have always hated having thin hair, so I was thinking I should keep them separate as they form, keeping em small and hopefully eventually creating a thicker looking head of dreads? I really don't know how that will work. Any advice on how to do that?
I am also seeing some stuff online about tugging at the roots. I am thinking I need to keep the first few inches of hair un-locked to prevent that? It seems to be naturally happening, but we've just gotten started so I have no idea what shape they might take. I also am wondering if I should/could keep my front sections of my hair free?
I am having a hard time finding reference pictures of what my straight hair might look like with the free form method. Do you think this picture I found could be close? Is this picture a representation of freeform or something else? I actually like how these look very much, but of course will be happy with whatever my hair decides to do.
Hi CloverQu... greetings from England's windswept shores..
I've found my dreads have quite a mind of their own; and some have turned out real thick and lumpy with thick ends, while others are thin and pointy at the end.. I've got used to just accepting they will do as they please and do accept some taming in the form of a wash every 4-6 days and separating most days as required.
Hopefully glance at my pics might give you an idea. I can't guarantee how yours will develop but recon thin hair may be a bit less unruly than mine (I could be corrected)..
Anywho... hope that helps and encourages you to enjoy the ride
