    Stop brushing.
    Wash with a residue-free soap.
    Chill.

    Do whatever you're comfortable with, just avoid wax, it's the devil.

    Man, if you pick any ten pages within this forum and pick out the relevent threads you'll find all you need to know. If you haven't already just read, read and read. I know it may seem tiresome, but it's a good lesson in patience for the journey you have ahead of you. As a rule of thumb if you're head itches wash it, don't worry about them comming apart they'll do that anyway unless you have seriously curly hair, in which case you shouldn't be doing anything to them other than washing them. Just be gentle with them when you wash to start with and don't fiddle too much with them.

    I know it seems hard to begin with, I think many people were like it when they first started thinking about/growing dreadlocks. Just chill and try to forget what you're trying to achieve otherwise you'll go crazy. Take the bands off, they're not going to help. Sure you can wear a wool hat if you want, right now if you feel like it if the weather's not too warm! Sorry I'm just being stupid. Point is don't go mad about thinking, if I do this, this'll happen or if I do that that'll happen. The main factor is time! Relax it'll all come good in time.
