I haven't had my hair cut for more than 5 years now and they have been in locks for three years. I started with the crochet method and was foolish to think that using wax would help. They locked up great alright but they're not healthy. So I am thinking of untangling the lot and starting from scratch.
My problem though is that while trying to untangle one lock, I may be breaking plenty of strands. I understand that this because they have been in a cramped position for years due to the wax but is there a way I can make the hair stronger? This way, I can untangle all of my dreads (with plenty of congos to boot) and still have plenty of hair left for a natural run at dreading.
Thanks in advance!
