Tidying up dreads??
I haven't posted for nearly a year - and to be honest I'm really struggling. I can't go out without my tam, I can't wear my tam to work so I'm struggling to scrape my dreads back into something that looks presentable, however they've shortented sooo much (14 inches to begin with, now around 5 inches!) it's virtually impossible now.
I was wondering whether it was possible to have dreads 'tidied up'? Mine are now a year old, some really loopy still, others fairly flat and not really 'dread' looking - but most of all loose hair everywhere - at the scalp, at the ends (I mean stray hairs sticking out of the already knotted dread end if that makes sense), and sticking out half way down the dreads.
I know many people are very much pro the natural route, but I'm becomming really demoralised, and really don't like the look of them at the moment.
