whats wrong with that bump? infact its so sweet that i urge you to post that in our special "loops,bumps,kinks" thread.. bumps gives personality to your dreads and makes it unique...who wants boring ropey candlesticks???also, do vigorous wax removal as well cz i can see wax there....we just launched a body spray that *really* is effective agnst evil wax... and switch to baking soda/acv wash rinse cycle...sooner you go natural sooner your hair will respond with awsome growth and delightfulness that dreadlocks truly is...

No worries it's totally normal. It means the dreads are tightening. I'm about 2 and a half months in and I don't have a single one that is bump/loop-less :)If you're really bothered by that big loop find a bead and put it over that part. That's what I've done to a few of my enormous loops and it at least hide them :P
