had to say goodbye to my dreads. :(
Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
so i started my dreads on march 29th. they were just a month old. and sunday i had to take them out:( i was very upset and still am. im pretty emotional about it. even though they all have not been removed yet. ive been workin on them for about 4 days and still have half a head of dreads to remove.
the reason i have to remove my precious babies is because my daughter keeps getting lice from the daycare center she goes to and i work at. and i thought i wouldnt get it. i cleaned my entire house, ive vaccumed everything, washed all clothes, go through her hair every night and etc. but for some reasin she keeps gettin it and im extremely aggravated with this place. but i found a bug crawling on one of them and didnt know if it just got there or if it had been there a while so im taking them out just to make shure.
Questions: i have some questions because my scalp is being tortured by my taking them out. number one, is it better to use conditioner and hot water? number two, ive been taking them out while they are dry and i feel like im losing more hair that way, am i? and number three, is there an easier way to take them out with out it hurting so much? last but not least number four, how long should i wait to redo them? because i loved them dearly and i cry with every one i am taking out they were like children to me. i treated them with so much love and did my best to take good care of them. my daughters loved them two. ( i have a three yr old and a one yr old) my kids would play with them and it was cute.
anyways thats my story and my questions. i appreciate any and all answers or questions.
