ok i decided to take the rubber bands off my roots. i have had my dreads for a little under a month. the thing is, there is quite a bit of loose hair around the roots. i work with them sometimes by palm rolling and clockwise rubbing. so the thing is, i am worried that without the rubber bands they will become a complete mess. the ends of my dreads are nice, and locking up nice already. near the middles of some and near the roots of most, they are far from locked. i am fine with my dreads now - the loose hairs don't bother me all that much. i usually wear them up anyway, or at least back with a headband. i am just worried that they will get worse and become unfixable. should i be worried? if worse comes to worse, they grow out and don't dread at the roots, and i wear my hair back until the growth is long enough that i can cut them off. but man, i don't really want to do that. :) help! :)
hi, i am new here. i'm nena. i have my dreads for (i guess would be) 2 years, but i am so sick of using elastics for my roots. isn't there any other way i can solve this? i just don't know what to do. and what do you do to make your dreads look as good as possible? i'm lost :/ and i can't get my dreads to look nice
