I've had my dreads for about 3 months and they look horrible. I started them at about 3-4in (which i suspect was the first problem), they've grown out a lil bit, but still look nasty. I have loose hairs everywhere which i cant seem to get into the dreads, and all my dreads are so so thin...is there anyway i can combine them? I try to wax and roll them as much as i can but it doesnt seem to help at all. My hair is very fine so i guess it doesnt want to lock up. any help would be so awesome!

Did you twist the loose hair around the previously locked hair?

Anyways, locks go through stages, baby stage, teenage stage and the mature stage. Everyone that had locks had a "not so good stage" in one way or another. I know lots of people with locs. As they grow they get better.

How do they look nasty? i'm sure if you are cleaning them then they are clean, right?

Yeah i tried twisting the loose air around the locks, and even waxed em and what not and the airs never want to go in the dread. And yeah i clean them so they are literally clean, but all the loose hairs and frizz and what not just makes them look nasty and unkempt. oh well in a few months i hope they will work themselves out

Dreads are dreads and they are not gana look great... they are matted clumps of dirty hair.   I had my dreads for 4 years and always had loose hairs and grown out straight hair.   

 

Here is what they lookwed like after I had them for two years

I wonder what was wrong to begin with that they all have to pretend
