How do I make super tight, knotted, back combed dreads? Every time I make a few, they entirely unravel in the shower even though I make sure to be gentle. :-/

Locks made with backcombing-only always start out soft and puffy. Then they tighten as they mature. JR has made a a video about how to backcomb, and you can watch it here.

If you follow the instructions in the video and they keep coming out, you may want to tighten them a bit with a 0.5mm crochet hook, or you can wait until your hair is a bit longer so it holds a tangle better.
