I have a problem, and have searched the memories but couldnt find anything in there. I have had my dreads for about 2 months now and have washed my hair once a week from the beginning but it still gets really greasy and gross after only 2-3 days. It really bothers me... should I just start to wash it more or do you think it is still adjusting? Why hasnt it adjusted yet? Everytime I wash they unravel a bit and get kind of messed up so i would prefere not to have to wash them more then once a week. Is there anything I can do to make them not get greasy so fast?
And for my other problem now... my hair is different lengths all over my head and the longer dreads are doing well but i have a few in the back that are 5-6 inches and they just wont dread, they did well for about the first month then they pretty much came out so i rebackcombed (i know, i know, its a no-no) those few that had unraveled, and they did well for a week or two but now, i had a shower yesterday and when i came out they were completly gone... just loose hair where they were, except for the roots, the roots are knotted very nicely and probably wouldnt come out if i tried to get them out. But should i just wait and see if the two that have come out start to dread from the root down or should i rebackcomb again since it is basicly loose hair there now (besides the root).
i hope that all made sense.. and thank you very much for any help. I would take a picture but i am newly a university student and dont have the money for a camera now.
