    day 23 (about). I've been getting tons of loose hairs, and even if i palm roll them till my hands turn blue, they dont do anything. I'm wondering if I should just leave them, or if I can do something that will make them dread in. Also, is this the 'frizzy period' I've heard about? and if it is, how long does it last?

    I had the same questions the first few months of my dreadies. i came to find out that leaving loose hairs gives your dreads character. i would leave them. over time they will eventually find a home. try using sea salt, water, and lemon juice mixed in a spray after rvery wash, it may will help.

    I've seen cats with dreads 10 years old and they still have loose hairs...New hairs are always growing in...they need to find their own homes at their own times.

    Don't fret.

    I'm on day .... 3? and my loose hairs suck lol. Is it normal that my dreads aren't that tight yet? I tighten them with my palms and thumbs often enough to keep them secure. how long will it take before they start looking decent?

    loose hair is always going to be there, just like corrupt governments and people living in poverty :)

    i get pissed off with my loose hairs too. i wannem to go away! but they just come back. i find that some hair places will tighten them up for you. if you're in manchester, behind afflecks palace is a great place. they REALLY tighten em up, and it looks so much better than before. about £20 for my 8" knots
