I think that's how it's supposed to be You don't wanna keep on TnR them forever right ? haha, I have experienced the same thing - though I did backcombed and TnR. They became all lose, like literally turned back to my original long straight hair. But after that I didn't do anything about it - and I just let them be. I have always thought that maybe - my hair really wanted the natural way, not the violent way of dreading. I hope you will realize the significance of going to the natural route. I wish you best and luck, Happy Dreading
How could they be ruined when they are doing exactly what they are supposed to b doing?
Like Barrellady said, locks need to untangle in order to retangle before they mature. Using a starter method like TnR is going to be like a 2 step forward 1 step back process for quite a few months. They will untangle when you wash them, but retangle when you sleep. Then untangle and retangle over and over and over again. Every time they retangle, they hold a few more knots than before. They might not be noticeable, but they are there.
In a few months you will see that more and more knots are holding and your sections start to develop more definite shapes.
Twist & rip sections are not dreads, they are the blueprint of your dreads to be, they only decide what the sectioning will be. All the work you did WILL loosen, it needs to in order to dread. To get a dread, the section will slowly feed its way up, getting fatter, loopy, zig zaggy, and at the beginning frizzy. This is all part of the journey, so sit back, stay mellow & enjoy the ride. They are not ruined like wet cake, they are doing their thing
not at all twists arent dreads just let it dread
but what are u washing with and how (technique)
u never had to twist to get dreads that was just an expensive wasste of time
