dont worry about unraveling u never had to ravel to begin with (is ravel a word how can something unravel if its not raveled/) hmm ravel doesnt come up as a typo so maybe it is a word..weird
anywho..if all u do is wash it dreads..
backcombed hair has to loosen some to transform from backcombed hair into dreads..its got to be free to move to dread
set them free and watch them thrive
have no fear..they would have dreaded if u skipped the backcombing and only weashed and nothing else
take them out right awaty
you should be afraid to leave them in
adter 1-2 days u unknot knots when removing them
in a week they can become swallowed enturelyu or break into peives leaving chinks inside forever or melt uintiok a sticky goo that stays in them forever
also they constrict and pinch weakening the roots damaging the hair
they prevent knotting by restricting movement
as soon as u take them out they wuill thrive
dont forget to use acv after to reset the ph
also i hope u got all rubber bands out
welcome no wax was used i hope..right?
(assume most ppl are aware how bad wax is now) what are you washing with?
