Okay, I decided to go for it! I quit brushing my hair a week and a half ago, and have done some back combing and palm rolling. I had about 2/3 of it in loose dreads, and then washed it, and a bunch of it came loose. Now it's really fuzzy, and the back and undersides are matted something awful, but it is hard to find the time to maintain. should I tie the locks off at the scalp? Please enourage me to stick with it!
