rippin' 'n twistin'

hey all. I've recently tried the old "rip and twist" thing to fix up some tips of my dreads (6 months old, so they're pretty nice toward the roots but there's a few inches of minimal dreadiness near the tips), and I noticed something today. I just finished one of my tips that had a particularly long section of undready hair at the bottom....and when I was done, the tip was rock hard, and looked like a dread that swallowed a braid. There was all this weird braidy-looking-ness to it. I also have pretty thick dreads, so does anyone know if trying to rip and twist ends up looking like this with thick dreads? Or am I just doing thing wrong? Should I scrap it and just backcomb the tips instead?

Peace
Mike
