What would happen if I combed my hair?
So, like I’ve said in a recent post I thought about combing out my freeeform dreadlocks and starting again (and then I decided not to) but now I’m thinking about it again...
They are not really fully dreads yet and I still have mostly loose hair with lots of curls trying to dread finally, but would a lot of hair be pulled out if I combed it? I don’t want to loose a lot of hair.
I’m still undecided yet and it might be a really stupid idea but I know how to wash my hair better now and how often and what products to use, etc, and my hair is much longer now, so I’m really curious to see if my hair will begin to dreadlock quicker with all that. Because I started them really badly, using residue shampoo, with short hair and not washing my hair as much as I did before freeforming. I’d treat as an experiment and if I decide to comb my hair I will be going through with the freeforming properly the second time.
I have a few dread balls forming at the end of some of my young dreads, I have tried combing/teasing out the ends to help water drain out more easily to dry quicker...It took alot of time, using alot of conditioner, would hate to have to comb them all out. Think i will be leaving them do their own thing and just concentrating on good separating from now on.
Yours might comb out easier, who knows? Good luck whatever you decide.
You just reminded me too, that the "Lazydreads" guy combed his long, 10 year+ dreads out (see youtube).
