I've scoured the depths of the memories and I haven't really found anything to help my situation.
The past couple weeks, I noticed that my dreads were getting a bit loose around the middle. The tips are most of the roots are just fine, but I can literally put my finger through the middle of most of them as if they were brushable hair.

I wondered why they were getting so loose,then it dawned on me. SHOWER!
I know you're not really supposed to wash baby dreads in the shower because the pressure from the water is too much...and I had to learn that the hard way.
I'm almost tempted to re-backcomb what's loose, but I know I shouldn't do that because that would pull knots away from the well knotted areas at the tips.

Is there anything else that I can do to re-tighten them? Or am I doomed to loose, brushable hair in the between my roots and tips?
