Sooo I'm curious. A month ago I read all about felting needles and decided to try it out. It worked great.. on the middle of my dreads and near the tips. A lot of people said it was great for knotting up the roots and the new growth, but I have found that a felting needle is the last thing I should have ever used on unknotted hair. Before the felting needle I had about 3-4 inches of undreaded hair at the roots on the right side of my head.. and I still do.. except now half of the hairs have broken off where the dreaded and nondreaded part of my hair meet. It really sucks. And I can't crochet it back in because it's the exact length of the undreaded hair and it can't be crocheted back into that. I only used it on my roots once and I really didn't do that much since I was so weary of damaging my hair.. so I don't feel like I overdid it. I was just wondering if anyone else had this experience with a felting needle since all the comments in the memories say it's good for the roots?

The best picture I could get.. it really doesn't look that bad here since it's blurry.. but the point at which the undreaded hair meets the dreaded hair is about 1/16 of an inch in diameter at the most. I think this dread is being held together by sheer will.

The dreads on this side of my head are fine..
