Tervetuloa Murmu to the community. Your hair will love natural dreads, the healthy choice is always best. Enjoy the site....Beautiful country you live in, my mother is from Finland, live here with me in Canada now.......peace
Just like I explained. You will always have some loose hairs, and a small amount of unknotted hair near your scalp. That's normal and healthy. That unknotted hair will suck in those loose hairs and form knots. Both keep growing, so when there's sufficient length hair to form a knot, they will start tangling on their own. When you wash, sleep, massage your scalp, let wind blow through your hair, anything, your hair will make small tangles. Those new tangles accumulate and form knots that just keep growing and growing, and follow your locks forever
absolutely take them out
just seperate by pulling the dreads apart while wet
Definitely take them out. I have a few vids on my page showing how to separate locks. You just need to pull them away from each other when the bodies of the locks start to congo
They are only 3 days old. They won't feel tight for about another 4-8 months. Dreadlocks take, on average, a full year to mature. Yours are still baby locks. They need to loosen and untangle, then retangle, then untangle, then retangle, over and over again with each wash before they start staying tight.
Rubberbands, at best will only delay progress. But they also squeeze your locks too tightly, creating weak spots and pulling out hairs. They also tend to break and get sucked into locks, where they dry rot and allow mold to grow
welcome they arent suposed to keep tight they have to loosen to dread right
What doesn't feel right about them?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of bad info out there. And most of it comes from people who either just started locking, or from people who just haven't heard the truth yet. Palm rolling is one of the biggest myths. The problem with it is that the damage is causes is so severe, but won't be noticeable for about a year. So people who do it and see progress rave about how it works without waiting to see if it actually did any good. Root tubbing is a similar concept. You don't see the damage for a while. And in that time, you just do more and more harm. Once you do see the damage, it's almost always too late to fix
It just happens. If you don't mess with your roots, that loose straight hair tangles in with the roots and gets knotted up on its own.
If it didn't happen like that, Eagle would have 5 inches of knotted hair and about 20 feet of straight hair. I'd have 4-5 inches of locks and 5 feet of straight hair
