Hi, sorry if this is silly, but if I dont touch my roots at all, will they dread as my hair grows out? Or will I just eventually have no dreadlocks?
You don’t have to do much to your dreads if you don’t want to; your hair will knot up at the root as it grows, however you will need to maintain your roots a little, otherwise your hair may all just matt together as it grows out. If you don’t want to do much to them, all you really need to do is make sure you separate them, by regularly pulling them apart so they don’t grow into each other. Your dreadlocks wouldn’t just grow out so you’d have normal straight hair again, it doesn’t quite work like that. That would be awesome if it was as easy as that!
Do you need to section your hair before dreading or can you do it randomly?
You don’t NEED to, you can just divide it where you think the hair naturally sections itself, but personally I would recommend that you do section it first to make sure you’re happy with the placement of them all and so you don’t end up with gappy areas. It will also help to stop your dreads combining when your roots start to grow, and you’ll know which dread any loose hair may be escaping from :)
Hi I just go my dreads it's day 4 and my dreads are pretty soft. Is that normal and will they get hard latter on ?
Yes that’s completely normal! They’ll feel soft and fluffy for a while until they start to mature and really knot up inside. Give them time and patience and you’ll get there!
