A question on congos..
sounds similar to what I have going on. Just try to be more gentle on your scalp. some times when you got the little hairs in the middle try grabbing less in order to seperate them, pull till the attached dread shortens and then pull the dread until it releases the hair. I think this is the only time I grab some aloe vera gel and palm roll the loose hair to the dread in which it belongs. This is the only time I palm roll though and I generally do it once a week. but pull aparts are whenever I remember, like once a day or so. Good luck!
