Need to know if my progression is normal.. :)
Help! Save My Dreads
I think they're looking nice! How did you start them?
I dont know if others would agree, but I think you can stop covering them while they sleep. The movement of your head on the pillow will help them to lock up.
As for your tips, a lot of people have loose ends. I initially thought i would try to blunt Gill's tips but in the end I just let them do their thing. She probably has a good 3 inches at the ends of her dreads that is loose and fine. It's really a preference. I know that she has one dread that has a blunted end where the tip sort of folded in upon the rest of the lock and dreaded up with it, but this takes time.
Loose hairs come with the territory and again... they just take time time time. Every one has em. Eventually they will find their way into a near by dread.
Keep on keepin on! And welcome to the site!
