You sure can get the beautiful healthy dreads you always wanted. When crocheting dreads just one time, it takes about 6 months for the hair to begin the locking process. During this time, any broken hairs will poke out, but will get swallowed back into the dread. Let them do everything on their own and you will be fine. Do NOT go back for them to your 3 month appointment or the 6 month wait will begin again, and you will have more broken hairs. Dreads are free, no maintenance fees, no touch up, no nothing.
You are not doomed, from here on in just wash them 2-3 times a week with a dread friendly shampoo and separate any sections that are trying to join onto another....that's it...easy huh?
So from here on in you let your dreads be in a natural state, be patient, allow the frizz and hairs to poke out...your reward for patience will be your beautiful healthy dreads that can last you a lifetime....peace
