Why are my dreadlocks growing into each other?


Dreads will try to merge with the ones around them if you aren't careful! It can happen down the body of the dread with just a little loose hair, or at untended roots.

In either case, you can separate them by pulling the individual locks apart, down to the scalp. This may hurt - so try to be as gentle as possible! If you are very VERY careful, and you can see exactly where the hair is joined, you can make a small cut to help get the separation going - a trusted friend may be your best bet, here.

A very trusted friend.

To prevent them growing together in the first place, keep up a consistent palmrolling schedule, and run your fingers through your dreads every day. Snapping one or two hairs is better than trying to rip through a whole section!
