If they look like hair follicles, they probably are. Leave it be, and don't worry. The hair you shed can't just fall out when your dreading, it gets tangled up too.

If it's some other type of white stuff, you should figure out what it is! Residue? Baking soda?Dandruff? Lint? Feathers? Mold?

I notice lint and feathers in my hair a lot, you can pull that stuff out withtweezers, or forget about it.

That's hair falling out, but some part of it is tangled with other hair. It just ends up in any position and all knotted together.

This may sound nuts to some but a VINEGAR bath will loosen all of the bits that cling and then embed in your Dreads. about twice a year I take a gallon of high quality, organic Cider Vinegar and soak my Dreads then wrap them (I use a large shower cap} for 30 minutes or so then rinse thoroughly and wash as usual. never have a smell and all of the follicles, skin, oddities, my Dreads have gathered are gone. the vinegar somehow unglues, for a better term, all of them. Hope this helps.
