Anyone else have this problem?
i really think with the ripping it gets worse before it gets better, You may be just before the stage when you don't have to rip much anymore, that's what happened to me. The thing is everyone's hair is different. What happens to me won't necessarily happen to you or anyone else. Just hang in there, try not to worry. At 5 months they are still going through so many changes. Kind of like their adolescence. They are still trying to find their way. Just accept them. Many BlessingsMiDread said:
I am about five or so months in. Not really in the "early-early" stages anymore. I know that fuzzy is natural, and my hair has a tendency to be fuzzy anyway if I don't dump tons of conditioner on it. But, it is really fuzzy and my dreads are almost like velcro!!!
I am beginning to think maybe it is the texture of my hair (unfortunately).
I wasn't really considering "conditioner" per se, but maybe some aloe or something might help control the congos a little. I've been separating every day since I started, but lately it seems like I have to do it constantly and it seems like my dreads just want to meld together in one big beaver tail or something. Maybe it is the humidity - it REALLY makes my hair curly, more than normal.
I haven't had long hair for very long. I kept it cut really short because it is so curly, so I am not used to dealing with longer hair issues and then dreads on top of it. Was just wondering if anyone else had these issues with their dreads or if it is just my hair type. Thought maybe someone could say "oh yeah, my hair does that all the time and this is how I deal with it."
The fact that Jake has to separate all the time makes me feel better. Oh well, will give it some time. Maybe this fall when the humidity stops I will see a big difference in the texture.
