1st month problems
Help! Save My Dreads
3 weeks is really too young to see much progress actually. I have naturally curly hair and it's honestly a blessing in the end. The first month was mostly loosening up and at the second month I started to see some tightening and loops started to happen. Now that I am at 4 months my curly hair makes my dreads look more like curly hair and less like the mess that some people complain about.
Be assured, the curls will eventually create awesome dreads. I have some that are already rounded-out locks.
An another note, you say you are at 3 weeks and have only washed your hair twice? Try washing your hair at least 2 - 3 times each week because natural oils from the scalp can inhibit locking. Also, if you make a water bottle of sea salt spray you can spray them a couple hours before each washing and that will help lock them up too.
