How to fix tight irritating dread root?
Fixed it!!! I did use the jojoba oil and actually did find that the root was partially dreaded somehow. It was trying to tighten up on me. I worked a little of the dread loose with the oil at the top and actually ended up having to cut a little matted part of hair that I could not pull out of the dread. That must have been the part that was pulling so much and irritating me. After I snipped it loose I ended up being able to work it out of the rest of the dread. No problems with pulling today and I didn't notice anything last night when I was thrashing around.Is it common for dreads to try to tighten up or mat at the roots like that? I don't do any clockwise rubbing or anything with them so I am a little surprised that this one was so matted so close to the scalp.Anyway - thanks for the help SE!
