Lumps and mold
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
My experience, at only 6 months, is that the lumps form on dreads that I TnR'd as well as where the hair fell loose completely. When I try to wrap them or put beads on the lump, it folds over and knots to the dread. It doesn't smooth out or get sucked in at all. I often find bits of fuzz trying to grow into my dreadies hehe. As far as I can tell there is no mold, but I use quite a few drops of lavendar in my wash and let it sit for a while before rinsing. Lavendar is supposed to kill mildew spores. I hope this is somewhat helpful to you.
